The rapid growth in the use of the ATV in amenity, private estates, agriculture, forestry and the many other sectors has seen the equally fast development of a wide range of accessories. From mowers, toppers, harrows and sprayers to spreaders and trailers, there's an accessory to suit virtually every task.
Wessex ATV equipment celebrates over thirty-five years of British manufacturing with a complete range. Their AF and AFC flail mowers are designed to complement ATV's and UTV's, offering heavy-duty performance coupled with a range of features well suited to controlling dense vegetation, brambles, bracken, long grass and for maintenance in forestry and woodland areas.
Maximum cutting power is delivered to the rotor via three Z-section drive belts and a manual clutch, a far more reliable and efficient system than a centrifugal clutch. This allows the mower to work in demanding conditions, making short work of cutting dense materials. There are side mounted (AF) and centrally mounted engine options (AFC) and the mower is available in 1.2m and 1.6m working widths.
The cutting height has a range of between 10mm and 160mm with heavy-duty 'y' pattern flails mulching and evenly distributing the debris across the width of the machine. There are four variations of wheel configuration to suit any application and satisfy the legal requirements of not only the European CE legislations, but also the stringent British HSE requirements.
The Wessex AR series rotary mowers make ideal partners with ATV's and utility vehicles or a 4x4 for cutting regularly mown areas, paddocks and general pasture topping. Popular on private estates, farms and studs the mowers are equally at home working with ATV's in general landscape and amenity fine turf cutting. 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, with minimal weight on the drawbar making it easy to hitch to the ATV. 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 AR series mowers feature a drawbar that is easily offset to either side and there are three overlapping rotors to eliminate uncut strips of grass. Drive is transmitted to the rotors via two vee-belts and a centrifugal clutch. The cutting height range is 25mm to 140mm and the engine options are Honda or Briggs & Stratton.
The Wessex Country range has been developed for groundcare contractors and to meet the needs of landscapers, private estate owners and smallholders. In the range, the AT110 ATV topper is designed specifically to suit the ATV user working to a budget, without sacrificing the top quality associated with the Wessex brand.
The topper has a 1.1m working width and power comes from a 12.5hp (9.32kW) Briggs & Stratton engine. Cutting is from a single blade bar, height adjustment is simple and the drawbar allows for use to the left, right or centrally behind the ATV.
The Wessex ranges for ATV's and UTV's also include trailed spreaders, sprayers, land rollers, drag harrows, trailers and accessories for equestrian facilities. Wessex products are manufactured and distributed in Great Britain and worldwide by Broadwood International
