Among a raft of new product introductions from Sanli at this year's show are a high quality 17in pedestrian roller drive mower and a super-manoeuvrable petrol zero-turn rider mower, both machines making their European debut on the Sanli exhibit (W44, Yellow Area).
Known as the LSPR42, the new 17in rear roller drive mower complements the LSPR48 19in self-propelled rear roller rotary mower launched earlier this year. Both machines are able to cut down to 12mm while bringing smart, distinctive stripes to closely-mown lawns.
The compact dimensions of the new LSPR42 mower makes it ideal for regular mowing of smaller ornamental lawns as well as other formal grass areas with narrow gates and pathways or limited space for turning.
The LSPR42 is equipped with a 4hp Sanli 400 OHV petrol engine and has a full-width split rear roller providing positive self-propelled drive as it creates attractive light and dark stripes across the grass.
Supplied with a 60 litre grass collector, the LSPR42 mower has six cutting height settings, quickly adjustable by a single-point lever. Price is a very competitive £332.50 (ex VAT).
Semi-professionals, smaller contract grass-cutting operations and those looking after larger ornamental and formal lawns are expected to be the principal customers for the new ZTB122 petrol-engined zero-turn rider mower. Able to turn within its own length, the machine complements Sanli's existing ZTSD122 diesel zero-turn rider mower, bringing exceptional manoeuvrability and high workrates to regular grass-cutting operations in open and confined areas.
Powered by a 22hp Briggs and Stratton Intek V-Twin air-cooled engine, the new ZTB122 is similar to the ZTSD122 in having infinitely-variable direct hydrostatic drive with steering and speed of travel both controlled by a pair of independently-actuated levers positioned directly in front of the operator.
The mower's 1.22m wide rotary cutting deck offers side discharge or mulching capabilities and there are 17 cutting height settings from 30mm - 90mm.
Equipped with a deluxe seat with arm rests and lap-type seat belt, the ZTB122 is priced at just £3,332.50 (ex VAT).
