Gang Mowers & Triple Mowers

Gang Mowing Systems for Lawn, Sportsfield, Park or Field

 

Trailed Gang Mowers - History and Considerations

Since the early 1900s cylinder mowing with simple land wheel driven gang mowers has been the preferred system for generations of groundsman, greenkeeper and park keeper. The low power requirement, simple configuration and ease of adjustment and maintenance make this traditional system a very effective method of cutting and recycling grass.

The professional models today are of two basic cutting widths and may use an 8” or 10” cylinder diameter. Generally an 8” cylinder would be suitable for sport, fine lawn and parkland with a 10” diameter for more growth such as golf course semi-rough or country park and paddock.

Considerations to the suitability of cutting surfaces should be made as gang mowers are designed to work on good level ground and even rolling surfaces. The overall unit weight is also important to maintain traction as the wheels need to remain in contact with the surface to drive the cutting cylinder.

Buyer beware - Lightweight imported “Mini Gang” sets will be useless if you expect a consistent quality of cut - once you move forward and increase speed they start lifting and bouncing leaving uncut ribs on the surface. Unlike a quality professional unit such as the RTM Tow n Mow Junior or the Dennis Guildfords - With each unit weighing 50kg on its own without the towing frame these gang mowers are more than adequate and produce a 1st class result - they are stout enough to hold tight to the surface and remain so even at max cutting speed.

Our Own Brand Gang Mowers

Here at RTM we understand the huge financial pressures that maintaining a quality sportsfield or lawn can dictate on the committee or owner.   Traditional systems are still the most cost effective way of cutting larger open areas and to distribute the clippings but machinery costs have escalated dramatically over the years. As a company with many years history in supplying maintaining and servicing such products we have invested time and resources in sourcing and manufacturing our own range of products to bridge the gap and to make gang mowing systems affordable. In fact we can supply new and re manufactured gang mowing units often for less than original ones can be repaired or renovated.

We have two systems and two designs in each.

Junior – 24” Cutting units with frames – our own Tow n Mow Junior & the Dennis Guildford both cutting a 1.6m sward and towable by lighter weight ride on lawn tractors, ATV’s, Trucksters or Tractors.

Senior – 30” Cutting units with frames – our own Tow n Mow Senior & our premium sports units the RTM “Sportster”.  

The “Tow n Mow Senior” is a value set of mowers configured in a set of three or 5 and built to give a clean cut, good distribution and value for money.

The RTM Sportster is designed for that premium finish on sport or park with a fine cut cylinder, adjustable bearings all round and ease of adjustment and settings – a true professional machine.

We offer a full service to the trade and end user alike. New machines, service exchange units, used machines, hire, contract hire or out right purchase.  We will do all we can to tailor our products and services to both your budget and needs. 

Part exchange can normally be offered on your old units.
