Have you looked at the Major range? I'm lead to believe that they are very good.

I have used a Wessex roller mower in a previous job - I wasn't too impressed with it to be honest. I believe Trimax are quality kit, and give a very nice finish.

Hello Monty,

Ive used many rotarys, from 12 inch to 10 feet wide and we have had Trimax mowers for over ten years. I would never change, they're worth every penny.

Presentation is the name of the game.

We have recently changed from a Votax to a Trimax and it appears, so far, to be doing a good job. It is easier to adjust and I'm sure you'll be able to find one small enough for your Kubota.

Can you just is the longest sentence in the world !!!!!!!

Trimax all the way for us we run it on a 30hp tractor with no problem. Tried several other makes and wouldn't change for anything. WD

Ticky supports British farmers...!!

Major all the way..im running 3 Major mowers now...my old faithfull 8400 rollermower (8ft) which i use on my JD 4600 with no probs...a SM800 topper with twin cut blades for paddocks and roughs...and a TDR 16000 tri-deck roller mower....i can safely say your Kubota will easily power and lift a 6ft Major rollermower...get on to your local dealer and get a demo...you will be most impressed...

monty,

your tractor will power the smaller 6000 major roller mower, as for the lift, i think thats just 'them' covering them selfs. but maybe the 6000 is a little to small - how big is your area?

i have a john deere 3720 and run a major 8400 which i was told was just on the lift capacity of the tractor, but it picks it up with no trouble at all. just a few weights on the front to keep the nose down for turning when mowing. it will become a problem when transporting from site to site as the straps can 'snap' if there is to much bounce and without weights may end up with the kubota pointing skywards!!!!!!

dont give up!!!!!

Monty your 27hp Kubota should have a lift capacity of around 900kg. It should manage any 6' roller mower but would benefit from some front weights. Have a look at the Port Agric Cutlass Rollamo which comes in 6', 7' and 8' versions. The 6' weighs about 350kg and the 7' about 480kg.
I think the JCB rollermower is a rebranded Port Agric.
