Wiedenmann Super 600  June 12Wiedenmann UK introduces its highest capacity collector to date. The Super 600 - a step up from the very popular Super 500 - increases load capacity from 2500 litres to a significant 4500 litres.

Like its namesake, it also combines as a flail mower, scarifier and sweeper to legitimately earn the title 'Super'. Such versatility means that this one machine can do the work of several smaller machines. With its enhanced capacity, the Super 600 is a very attractive proposition for local authority users and golf course managers as it is especially suited to park grounds, extensively maintained areas, ecological meadows, sports grounds and golf facilities.

In-cab remote control allows the operator to easily change the three operating functions - head unit lift and lower, hopper lift and hopper tip. In any of its modes it produces a high airflow which ensures that the collected material is well compacted. It is extremely manoeuvrable with a light footprint; the four 23x 10.5 pneumatic tyres minimising pressure on fine turf areas. The container lifts via a parallel system, with the hopper rotating - allowing the hopper to completely discharge collected material.Working depth or height of cut is easily and quickly adjusted.

In sweeper mode it has a fully floating head with 1.6 metre working width, which ensures a clean, even pass over undulating ground; its powerful, high performance vacuum collects leaves, litter and other debris and deposits them into the vast 4500 litre hopper. An extremely ingenious wheel locking system allows the four swinging axle wheels to float and pivot during work but lock into a fixed position when the tank is raised for tipping giving a particularly stable base to empty from making it a very safe operation.A professional clean finish is left every time.

Frequently those involved with this type of work comment that theyare hampered by the wasteful journeys back and forward to empty loads. The enormous capacity of the Super 600 means that it takes a lot longer to fill and consequently needs less time spent emptying. The 2.1 metre high dump facility comes as standard and has infinitely variable settings, allowing easy tipping into bins and trailers when discharge eventually is required.

By cleverly positioning spent air flow downwards, dust and noise are minimised, an important factor if working in noise sensitive areas such as schools, hospitals or residential areas. All service flaps are easily accessed for cleaning; the multi rib belt drive system also reduces any maintenance work.
The Super 600 attaches via a draw bar to tractors 50hp and above. Options include rear lights; a front roller to help reduce the chances of scalping; a dethatching and scarifying unit with verticut blades that can be spaced 19mm, 38mm and 57mm centres. Optional Durablades™ made of tungsten steel are also available.

Prices start from £26,000 ex VAT
