A new range of innovative zero-turn mowers with a variety of interchangeable decks is now available from Rustons Engineering.
The Typhoon ZT mowers are available with 18hp petrol engines or 20.5hp diesel engines and can be fitted with mulching, rear-discharge or collecting decks to suit different requirements. The decks have a quick change-over system, and flail and scarifier heads can also be fitted. Cutting widths range from 110cm to 130cm depending on the deck used.
Reco is selling the machines in three basic specifications -- the non-collecting Typhoon ZT, the Typhoon 300 ZT with 300-litre collecting hopper, and the Typhoon 700 ZT, which has a 700-litre hopper and is also available in a 190cm high-tip version.
The mowers have particularly good grass collection performance and include an anti-blockage system and a central delivery pipe that runs within the machine, avoiding the impact damage that occurs when this part of the equipment protrudes from the side. A three-blade impeller blows the grass evenly into a rear hopper, which cannot be over-filled and block the collection system. In wet conditions engine exhaust can be diverted to aid collection and reduce blockage risk.
