Etesia-Pro-46-PHG-Long-Rang.jpgContractors and local authorities with mobile grass cutting teams can often find their scope of work is restricted as a direct result of the size of the mower's petrol tank. When it comes to pedestrian operated machines, frequent stops for refuelling not only waste valuable operator time, but, careful planning needs to be carried out to ensure mobile teams always have sufficient top-up fuel in close proximity to their mowing location.

In response to this problem, and as a result of demand from local authorities, Etesia has launched a new 'long range' pedestrian wheeled rotary - the Pro 46 PHG. Powered by a well-proven 5.5hp Honda GCV 160 engine, this 46cm walk-behind lawnmower has a large capacity 2.5 litre petrol tank designed to allow the operator to complete a full day's work without the need to re-fuel.

In addition to the practical bonus of the Pro 46 PHG's large capacity fuel tank, there are important Health & Safety benefits - the need for less frequent refuelling reduces the risk of spillage when working on site and, in turn, operator-exposure to petrol fumes is minimised. The hazards associated with transporting petrol cans can be eliminated, and, with once-a-day fill-up at the depot, consumption can be cost effectively monitored. In addition, there is greater opportunity to control the possibility of fuel misuse by operators.

Built to withstand the rigours of commercial use, Pro 46 PHG has a tough Xenoy cutting deck, making it lightweight and easy to transport. As with all rotaries in Etesia's Pro 46 range, it offers low vibrations combined with high performance, quality cut and reliability - features which make many local authorities come back year after year with extremely large repeat orders for Etesia rotaries.

Pro 46 PHG is designed for ease-of-use. Handlebars adjust for operator comfort and fold for storage and transportation. The large 52-litre grass collector can be easily removed or replaced from either side of the machine - a deflector falls into place when the rotary is used in cut-and-drop mode. A mulching kit is also available.

Every Etesia is built to the highest standards of quality and safety. A nation-wide network of dealers provides full after sales support. Demonstration is free of charge and without obligation - telephone 01926 403319.
