Launched at the NEC this November 2015, the all-new Wessex ProLine CRX-410 is a trailed tri-deck multi-cut mower which boasts exceptional ground contour following capabilities. The three decks are available with the option of four castoring wheels, for maximum manoeuvrability, front and rear rollers to leave a prestigious banded effect on fine turf, or a combination allowing longer grass to be tackled effectively.

The CRX has a blade tip speed similar to that of the Wessex RMX roller mowers, allowing an equivalent cut quality on fine turf, while the Tornado-Vents system ensures the correct airflow through the machine for a premium cut and clipping dispersal. Undulating golf courses present no problems to the CRX-410 as the independent floating decks allow ground contours to be followed closely and accurately. The Wessex Tight-Turn feature ensures an exceptionally tight turning capability meaning trees, goal posts and other obstacles can be negotiated with ease.

The industry has not seen a mower like this before. Packed with clever design features and benefits it's a mower that offers a generous 4.1m cutting width and can be operated behind tractors with only 35 plus horse power. The convenient 'Pro-Lift' feature allows the decks to be raised quickly and easily when negotiating kerbs, roadways and paths. The adjustable drawbar suits all tractors and the wide angle PTO enables the tight turning circle. Maintenance is easy with all spindles greasable above the deck, while wheel height adjustment is by removable bushes. The rollers are adjusted by a simple screw thread mechanism. There are wide turf tyres for minimal ground compaction and the patented linkage allows the rear deck to follow the direction of travel for minimal turf scuffing. Suspension offers smooth travel and safety catches on all decks provide security in transport, with a highway kit of mud guards and rear lights available. Fast, nimble and versatile the CRX-410 is ideal for golf course fairways, rough and semi-rough as well as sports turf and general amenity applications.
