Wessex have been trialling their new RMX-800 roller mower with its impressive 8 metre mowing width, the perfect machine for use on a turf farm or large amenity area.
All the features and benefits of the well-known Wessex ProLine RMX range have been incorporated into one triple deck fine turf mower. The result is a precision cut finish, new transmission, fast forward speeds and operation with one or both wings lifted.
The aim of the RMX-800 is to achieve a finish equal to a cylinder mower while reducing mowing time and increasing output and profitability at a fraction of the cost.
This giant of a mower achieves that and more. Wide area mowing offers cost-efficiency and each deck on the triple mower has full width rollers at the front and rear that restrict airflow, where the high speed blades create suction beneath the deck chamber in which the uncut grass is sucked up by the blades, leaving a superb quality cut at high speeds.
Above all, say Wessex, servicing and maintenance are easy, reducing costs substantially compared to the equivalent in cylinder mowers. Operation is simplified as no electro-hydraulics are required and there are no electric clutches.
The transmission system allows wings to be engaged and disengaged whilst in work, without a clutch mechanism. Wing control is independent; they are operational with one wing lifted, and the folding wings can cut gradients from -30° to +30° with the middle deck remaining on level ground.
It all adds up to an economic solution for turf farms and large sporting areas such as polo pitches, public parks, football and cricket grounds and other such amenities.
