More "batwing" rotaries to Telford and Wrekin

By Richard Bishop

A further two Hayter R314 three unit "batwing" rotaries have been bought by Telford and Wrekin. This brings the total number of R314s in their fleet up to 11, the largest fleet in the UK of this type of machine.

Phil Constable, grounds maintenance manager for Telford and Wrekin Services, reviewed the methods of grounds maintenance in 2001 and decided that the best type of machine to maintain the wide grass verges in the area was the three unit rotary. After evaluation of the products available, he chose the Hayter R314. The initial purchase was for nine machines in late 2001. They proved to be ideal for the application in Telford and additional work taken on meant that two further machines were required.

Phil, who has considerable experience of grounds maintenance in both the private and public sector said. "The R314 has a high work rate, is very reliable and both daily maintenance and major servicing is as easy as it can be on a machine of this type. It has been one of the key factors responsible for the continual improvement to standards in Telford."
