Sherratt Landscape Contractors, a commercial grounds maintenance company based in Flintshire Wales, has recently invested in a fleet of new Etesia pedestrian and ride-on mowers to ensure that the high quality the company is renowned for is maintained.
Craig Stockton, Managing Director at Sherratt, comments: "We had used other brands before but always had problems with reliability. I spoke with Jonathan from Morris's Stores, our local dealer, and he recommended looking at Etesia. We had a demo and since the change-over to Etesia it's really worked for us."
Craig decided to change their fleet of pedestrian mowers to the PRO 46 and PRO 51 and ride-on mowers to the Hydro 80 which have been continuously at work on 80 gardens in North Wales each and every day for the past five years, with nothing but regular servicing ever required.
Designed to meet the rigours of a wide variety of commercial grass cutting applications, Etesia's Pro 46 pedestrian rotaries are specified by contractors who want to profit from grass cutting.
The Single bladed Etesia PRO46 PBE push and PRO46 PBTS self-propelled models have a 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine. Cutting width is 46cm, the detachable grass box with 'full' indicator has a capacity of 52 litres, and overall weight is just 37kg.
Designed around the operator, the handlebars are ergonomically shaped and mounted for ease-of-use. New 'soft-touch' controls reduce pressure on the hands and fingers during operation.
Extensive testing of these latest models has shown low vibration levels that meet stringent Health and Safety guidelines. There are six models available in the range, with options including a mulching facility.
The compact Hydro 80 ride-on mower is ideal for multi-tasking and easily adapts to every terrain, every grass cutting situation and every task.
The pocket-size cut and collect mower, at just 0.82 m wide and 1.98 m long, features an incredibly tight turning circle and is able to nip into every nook and cranny as well as being able to be easily transported in the back of a van or on the back of a trailer.
"After using Etesia for the past five years, we now know the life cycle of a machine. If we are tendering for a three year maintenance contract, we know that the Etesia mower will last.
"The PRO46 and PRO 51 mowers are bullet proof but also light weight which enables one-man grass cutting teams to operate. Manoeuvrability of the Hydro 80 is fantastic. The fact that they can fit through gates whilst cutting and collecting even in the wet is by far its best feature," said Craig.
