Etesia UK say that they have recently seen an extremely high demand for demonstrations of both their Attila A180 all-terrain ride-on mower and also their Attila SKF which is now available with an optional dual wheel kit for extra stability on uneven terrain and steep slopes of up to 25°.
Fitted with tyres of an agricultural profile, with a very low centre of gravity and optimised weight distribution, the Attila SKF fitted with the dual wheel kit which gives a wider wheel base, is primarily used for mowing banks and slopes around buildings, playing fields and also on rough areas situated around golf courses.
The differential lock with foot control is very practical in use and will allow you to retain control while mowing on slopes, even if a drive wheel loses grip. Fitted with a profiled mowing deck and reversible swing tip blades (85 cm cutting width), the system allows mowing in difficult conditions.
Hand or foot control for drive transmission, from 0 to 10 km/h: select the control you prefer and adapt your speed precisely to the terrain (slopes, obstacles etc.) or grass for closely controlled mowing.
The Attila A180 revolutionary ride-on brushcutter is perfect for safe mowing on banks and uneven terrain of up to 50%. Whatever the angle of the site, Etesia’s Attila A180’s unique automatic self-levelling system keeps the central driving unit upright, allowing the operator to work safely on slopes up to 27 degrees. A dashboard light warns when this limit is reached. The machine has a certified ROPS plus hydrostatic drive, power steering and good all-round visibility.
Powered by a 30hp Yanmar water-cooled 3 cylinder diesel engine, the Attila A180 has a hydrostatic drive, power steering and hydraulic drive to the cutting units. It is specially designed for large sites such as motorway banks, industrial estates, reservoir banks and other uneven terrain.
“While slopes and hillsides add dimension to the landscape, those same slopes can be extremely dangerous to mow without the correct type of mowing equipment”, says Les Malin, Etesia UK’s General Manager. “The big mistake is to use a standard ride-on mower for maintaining steep slopes as they can easily become unstable on gradients, putting the operator at risk”.
Etesia UK offers free demonstrations of both the Attila A180 and Attila SKF, fitted with the new dual wheel kit for extra stability on bank and slopes.
