Simon Richard Range Attracts Attention

Simon Richard Range Attracts Attention: A recent joint A-Plant and Land & Water event to showcase products available to the Environment Agency was used by Simon Richard Ltd, along with Loxston Groundcare to demonstrate the value of the Reform bank tractor, Muthing flail and Woods Equipment ranges.

Simon Richard said, ‘’the event was a great opportunity to demonstrate our products, particularly the recently launched Reform Metron P48 RC, the first radio controlled equipment carrier with real hybrid drive.

The Metron’s concept is based on a 48hp Kubota petrol engine powering a generator which supplies energy to the battery pack and the electric wheel motors. Metron can also have other power sources such as Hydrogen cell, when available. The generator has a direct drive which drives the mechanical front PTO shaft, allowing Metron to operate all attachments mechanically.  Control at up to 400 metres range is via a powerful, ergonomic radio hand-set with integrated colour display.

The hybrid drive also allows Metron to operate purely electrically. If more power is required, the petrol engine can be switched on quickly and easily. Permanent all-wheel drive to four same size wheels, low centre of gravity and five different steering modes combine to give optimum slope capability. A range of attachments such as flail mowers, rotary mowers, snow blowers, ploughs, brooms and much more can be easily mounted and Metron’s compact dimensions and 1,000 kg weight make it is easy to transport and operate in tight conditions”
