Since they were first introduced Wessex ProLine RMX roller mowers have grown a following with turf professionals and greenkeepers from golf courses and sports pitches to councils and local authority contractors.
The much favoured 1.8, 2.4 and 3m rigid deck roller mower designs were the first to set new standards in roller mower design and they remain as popular today.
The aim was to incorporate many user-friendly features and in particular ease of maintenance. One of the biggest advantages of the roller mower concept is cost-efficiency, without compromising the cut finish quality.
They have proved that professional roller mowers such as the Wessex ProLine RMX series will leave a finish equal to a cylinder mower on fine turf at a fraction of the initial cost.
Then take the fact that servicing costs are nominal by comparison and it's easy to see why they have become the primary choice, with their belt drive for reliability, ease of servicing and, most importantly, increased fuel efficiency, where a belt drive beats gearbox drive every time.
The high maintenance costs of re-grinding cylinders and adjusting bottom blades are a thing of the past and the innovative design of these rigid deck roller mowers allows high forward speeds, a superior daily work rate and a superb finish quality.
The concept is one most professionals will be familiar with. Grass is lifted by the updraft caused by the high blade speed and cut quickly and cleanly, then dispersed evenly across the full width of the mower with no unsightly balling or clumping.
The modern, streamlined design keeps the rollers tucked underneath as close to the blade tips as possible which, together with the floating linkage points, ensures the ground contours are followed accurately.
The Wessex ProLine RMX range starts with the RMX 180 which requires a low minimum power requirement of just 30hp, making it an ideal choice for users of compact tractors.
The RMX 240 is the widest rigid deck roller mower you can transport safely on UK roads, making it an excellent mower for councils and contractors.
The largest rigid deck mower is the RMX 300 which is the perfect partner for football pitches, sports fields, parks and corporate gardens.
