Following the success of its Swift Roller Mower range, Major Equipment Ltd is delighted to announce the launch of the Major Contoura at Saltex 2016.

The Major Contoura is a trailed tractor mounted mower designed primarily for golf and amenity turf applications and has a 3.6m cutting width. It has a unique pivoting frame which allows the three mowing decks to follow the ground contours with ease thanks to the self-aligning spherical bearings.

The turf industry is under sustained pressure to deliver increased mowing productivity against a backdrop of budget cuts. "We've developed this mower following feedback from greenkeepers and other golf and turf industry professionals," explained John Murphy, Managing Director at Major Equipment. John continued: "The Contoura is quick to set up and user friendly to operate. The Contoura mower's maintenance costs are minimal in comparison to those associated with a cylinder mower."

The Major Contoura has full width rollers that follow undulations to give a consistent cut, in both hilly and less challenging terrains. The cutting height can easily be adjusted from 10 - 110mm making it ideal for fairway and rough turf maintenance and delivers a professional striped finish.

As with all Major Roller Mowers, the Contoura has a gear driven drive line, which eliminates the problems associated with belt driven mowers.

Other features include: a zero-turn ability, high blade tip speeds of 86m/s and the Major Tri-Cut blade system with protective undersole disc.

"We have over 30 years' experience producing mowers for the global turf industry," said John, "and we are particularly excited about the Contoura launch at this year's Saltex show."
