Ryetec's New 'S' Class

Ryetec have just announced the introduction of the new addition to their already well received contractor range of front and rear mounted flail mowers. The new 'S' model adds a new dimension to the already well specified Contractor range.ryetecSclass.jpg

While the standard Contactor is available in 1.6/1.8/2/2.2/2.5 & 2.8 metre cutting widths, the new 'S' model spans 2-2.8 metre sizes and is instantly recognizable by it's larger frame size which accommodates a thick walled 200mm diameter flail rotor with larger hammer flails which give a larger overall flail diameter and therefore higher flail tip speed for improved cutting efficiency. Greater clearance between flail tip and frame allow easier passage of large volumes of material and the 2 rows of static counter blades reduce cut material volume to a minimum.

Like the standard Contractor, the S class has a double skin but wall thickness increases from 10mm to 14mm, as before the standard rear 3 position opening hood allows for controlled ejection of cuttings even the heaviest growth. The 'S' model Contactor is available for front or rear mounting, and with fixed, manual or hydraulic side shift head stock. For maximum flexibility the Contractor 'SFR' has both front and rear linkage and PTO shafts and all the usual features of the 'S' model contractors. Prices start from £4060 + Vat

Ryetec help Sheffield with Forward View to cut through Urban Jungle


Sheffield's Kompass Avant features electronic proportional joystick controls and improved geometry, which allows the operator to hydraulically move the head as far behind the machine as in front. This is especially useful for cutting into awkward corners, of which there are plenty in the areas around Sheffield where Dave Mappin, (Grounds Maintenance, Transport Section), has responsibility.

The Ryetec Kompass replaces a conventional rearryetecsheffield.jpg

The Kompass Avant joins three other smaller Ryetec SL320 compact side arm flail mowers which Sheffield City Council took delivery of earlier in the year.

Ryetec Are Out In Front Again, OH ! & Off To One Side As Well


Cutting widths of 1.6/1.8 & 2 metres are currently available and the externally mounted gearbox on the machine allows the mower to work completely outside the tractors wheels using a standard PTO shaft. The MU-F machines can also be supplied with an economy 750 or 540 rpm pto and clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation. The cutting head of the MU-F can be operated either in a fixed or floating position and runs on a 150mm (6") diameter heavy duty roller with internal bearings, theryetecHedgeTrimming.jpg

In combination with either a side arm or rear mounted flail the MU-F machines give a range of opportunities for the forward thinking contractor.

These machines are also available rear mounted up to 2.5 metres in width.
