Owners of ATV's and UTV's or anyone thinking of acquiring one as a workhorse will find the Wessex range of towed mowers well worth a look.
You may be a landscaper, contractor, owner of an estate, farm or smallholding or perhaps an equestrian facility.
Either way, there's no doubt the convenience of a quad or side by side utility vehicle quickly becomes an essential part of life and it makes sense to complement it by hitching on a mower and off you go to mow, topping the pasture or fine cutting the turf.
Take the Wessex AR Series and you have a choice of versatile machines, several with electric start, offering you rotary mowing at reasonable cost with 1.2m, 1.5m and 1.8m working widths.
There is also the option of standard side mounted wheels or in-line rear wheels if you have to work close to fences, borders or under overhanging hedges.
You can choose from Briggs & Stratton or Honda engine power and all models feature three overlapping rotors to eliminate uncut strips of grass, with rigid cutterbar blades for durability.
Drive is transmitted to the rotors via two vee-belts and a centrifugal clutch, with both belts tensioned simultaneously by one simple sliding action of the engine mounting bracket.
The cutting height range is 25mm to 140mm (1" to 5½") so there is plenty of scope for cutting a variety of areas and in standard form, with the wheels directly in line with the rotors, ground contours can be followed accurately for a close cut without scalping.
On the other hand, if your day means dealing with brambles, bracken, long grass and dense vegetation, the Wessex AF/AFC flail mowers are ideally suited to this and maintaining forestry and woodland areas.
You can choose a side mounted (AF) or central mounted (AFC) engine option 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. The stability of the AFC is ideally suited to working on steep banks and there's a full-width anti scalp roller to take the weight of the machine should a wheel drop into a rut.
A triple belt drive ensures top performance and reliability. The 5mm steel plate deck offers durability and strength and heavy-duty y-pattern flails effectively mulch material for even distribution.
If you're looking for a budget model the Wessex AT110 topper is another ideal choice and what's more, this is all backed by over fifty years of manufacturing for durability and peace of mind.
