This autumn, Etesia has launched two new professional pedestrian rotary mowers – the PKCTM and LKCGM Duocut models.
The PKCTM model is a 46cm single speed machine equipped with a 6HP Kawasaki KAI-FS181 engine and comes complete with a 50 litre grass box. Cutting heights are quickly adjusted from 28-85mm. As a direct result of demand from local authorities and contractors, this machine has a large capacity fuel tank which is designed to allow operators to complete a full day’s work without the need to re-fuel.
In addition to the large capacity fuel tank, there are important Health & Safety benefits – the need for less frequent refuelling which reduces the risk of spillage when working on site and, in turn, operator-exposure to petrol fumes is therefore minimised. The hazards associated with transporting petrol cans can also be eliminated, and, with once-a-day fill-up at the depot, consumption can be cost effectively monitored.
Built to withstand the rigours of commercial use, the PKCTM has a tough Xenoy cutting deck, making it lightweight and easy to transport. As with all rotary mowers in the Duocut range, it offers low vibrations combined with high performance, quality cut and reliability – features which make many of the UK’s top councils and local authorities as well as landscapers and groundsmen come back year after year with large repeat orders.
The LKCGM is a 53cm model equipped with a 6HP Kawasaki KAI-FS180 engine and three speeds – 2.7, 3.5 and 4.5km/h. It is fitted with an 80 litre grass box with cutting height adjustment from 25-85mm and an aluminium cutting deck.
Extremely versatile, both new models are capable of mowing with or without collection in all conditions, or for high-quality mulching. And they do all that without the need for an accessory.
That high performance is possible thanks to the Duocut concept which is the perfect combination between 100% collection and 100% mulching decks, without compromising the results of either of the functions. Changing the mowing system is easy: just place the removable insert under the deck if you want to mulch. Remove the insert if you prefer to mow with or without collection. There is no need for a tool or blade change. The insert completes the shape of the deck to form a smooth surface with no roughness, allowing the grass to move easily for incomparably superior mulching.
Excellent mulching results with a very high collection performance, even if the grass is long and wet is compacted in the grass collection boxes, complete with box filling indicator.
Both models come, as standard, with ‘soft grip’ handle bars which can fold for easy transportation.
