Range of Italian cutters

MACHINERY available from Reco now includes a range of Italian-built hedge and verge cutters. The Ferri range, says Reco, includes a vast number of models designed to accommodate all sizes of tractor with a choice of joystick or cable control.

Initially, however, Reco reports it intends to concentrate on the 4m-6m reach machines which, it believes, will constitute the majority of its sales. Verge mowers available from Ferri are offered with hydraulic telescopic offset and an ability to operate on plus or minus 60 degree banks.

Prices have yet to be announced. &#42

Club Cars Carryall vehicle range has been extended to include this Turf 11 XRT model. Designed for use in rough terrain, the unit is powered by a 11hp petrol engine and features independent front suspension, rear stabiliser bar and trailer hitch.

Lemken Variopack 110FEP K folding presses have a starting price of £5700 for a 4m model fitted with 70cm diameter rings, £7150 with 90cm rings.
