Wessex has an enviable reputation for building quality mowers and these two confirm their place as top sellers. The Wessex AR series rotary mower is the first choice for regularly mown areas, with high work rate and lower maintenance costs than a flail mower. On the other hand, the Wessex AF/AFC flail mowers come into their own when there's a need for controlling dense vegetation.
Taking the AR rotary mower first, you have a versatile topper, good for pasture topping or fine turf work. No wonder then it's popular with private estates, farms and studs. The range is large with 1.2m, 1.5m and 1.8m working widths and a number of different wheel configurations.
In standard format the AR has the wheels on the end of the deck for fine balance, creating minimal weight on the drawbar and making it easy to hitch to an ATV, UTV or 4x4. With the wheels directly in line with the rotors it follows ground contours accurately for a close cut without scalping. Alternatively there is a rear wheel option for cutting close to fences and borders. The cutting height range is 25mm to 140mm and the engine options are Honda or Briggs & Stratton.
The Wessex AF flail mowers have been developed to meet the needs of contractors, farmers and estate owners for swiftly dealing with brambles, bracken and long grass as well as meeting the need for maintenance in forestry and woodland areas. A perfect partner for use with ATV's and UTV's, there are side mounted (AF) or central mounted (AFC) engine options and 1.2m and 1.6m working widths, with four variants of wheel configuration.
This offers a wide range of applications and satisfies the legal requirements of the British HSE. There's a triple belt drive for performance and reliability, a 5mm steel plate deck for durability and strength and heavy-duty y-pattern flails to effectively mulch material for even distribution. All topped off with a swiveling ball hitch for increased safety.
