Wessex AR Series Rotary Mower
The Wessex AR Series Rotary Mowers are the first choice for paddock topping and maintaining regularly mown grass areas, as the work rates are higher, and the maintenance cost lower than that of a flail machine.
Available in 1.2m, 1.5m and 1.8m working widths, and with a variety of engine sizes, the AR Series rotaries are robust and durable machines ideally suited to private estates, farms, and studs.
When operating behind a 4×4 or a car, the AR180, 1.8m model is recommended as firstly, the machine can be seen in the rearview mirrors, and secondly, a more powerful engine is favoured due to the possibility of overloading. Standard machines are fitted with side mounted wheels, which allow ground contours to be followed accurately without scalping.
However, if a machine is required to mow close to borders and fences etc, the optional rear wheel configuration is available on the 1.2m and 1.5m models only. With wheels behind the machine, the weight on the ball hitch is greatly increased, therefore when using a rear wheeled machine, the towing vehicle must have adequate weight capacity on the drawbar.
If the towing vehicle has inadequate drawbar capacity, the third wheel option is available. The entire weight of the machine is now on its own wheels and the drawbar is floating.
