Irish implement manufacturer Major has bolstered it Cyclone mower range with the addition of two new models.
These new units will sit at the bottom of the current line-up; a 2.8m rigid deck and 4.2m double-winged unit offering a 2.5m transport width, with existing 4.2m, 5.6m and 6.3m winged version completing the list.

Major claims these mowers have reduced power consumption thanks to its patented double-chop blade system, which is said to require 25% less horsepower compared with equivalent flail mowers.
Made from galvanised Strenx 700 MC high-strength steel, the mowers can be used for clearing stubble areas of maize or cereals, or for hacking down gorse and saplings.
The 2.8m MJ31-280 has four rotors with 16 blades on each and retails for £9,700, whereas the 4.2m MJ30-420 costs £16,590 and has six rotors housing 24 swinging blades.
