Reform Launch Metron At Galabau: Revealed at the recent Galabau Exhibition in Nuremburg for green urban open spaces equipment, specialist bank tractor manufacturer Reform Werke has launched the Metron P48 RC as the first radio-controlled equipment carrier with real hybrid drive.
Simon Richard, UK Sales Agent for the Reform range says, “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. The generator also has a direct drive which drives the mechanical front PTO shaft allowing Metron to operate all attachments mechanically.
Control is via a powerful, ergonomic radio hand-set with integrated colour display and a working range up to 400metres .The hybrid drive also allows the Metron P48 RC 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 and 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.”
