0 New triple deck mowers go far and wide

RMX 680Wessex ProLine RMX roller mowers have been setting new standards in roller mower design for many years. Now the new triple deck mowers offer the ultimate in wide area mowing, with the significant advantages of cost-efficiency without compromising cut finish quality.

The new-generation RMX-560 and RMX-680 are the ideal choice for councils, local authority contractors, sports complexes and other large amenity areas. All the features and benefits of the widely used Wessex ProLine RMX range have been incorporated into one triple deck machine, to reduce mowing time and increase output and profitability. Requiring no electro-hydraulics, and with no electric clutches, these professional roller mowers will leave a finish equal to a cylinder mower on fine turf, at a fraction of the cost.

The patented transmission system allows wings to be engaged and disengaged whilst in work, without a clutch mechanism. They offer versatility too. With independent wing control they are operational with one wing lifted and the folding wings can cut gradients from -30° to +30° with the middle deck remaining on the ground. All the decks have independent float and the patented linkage system allows the rear deck to follow the direction of travel, to minimise tyre and roller scuffing. Turf tyres are also used for minimum ground compaction and independent suspension is incorporated for smooth road travel.

Each deck on the triple mower has full width rollers at the front and rear that restrict airflow, creating a suction beneath the deck chamber in which the uncut grass is sucked up by the blades, leaving a superb quality cut at high speeds. There are double taper roller bearings in all rollers and they also stripe the grass for a premium finish.

The RMX triple mowers are available in 5.6m and 6.8m working widths and, as with all the RMX roller mowers, servicing and maintenance is easy, substantially reducing costs compared to an equivalent width cylinder mower. Available for delivery in spring 2013 the machines come in the new Wessex livery, celebrating 50 years of quality manufacturing in Britain.
