Pellenc launch new Rasion 2 Models

Pellenc launch new Rasion 2 Models: Pellenc UK has announced the launch of the all new Rasion Easy 2 and Rasion Smart 2 battery powered pedestrian rotary mowers.

The original Rasion Easy was launched back in 2016 which was a combination of the previous two models in the Rasion rotary mower range – the Basic and the Smart. Feedback from users revealed that commercial operators found the manual operation of the Rasion Basic more appropriate yet they also liked the self-propelled element of the Rasion Smart.

Therefore, the Rasion Easy was launched to offer a combination from both models.

2019 sees a new and improved Easy model with a number of exciting key features.

Mow in silent harmony with the environment

  • New silent Brushless wheel motor with direct drive.
  • 91 dB at speed 3 and 93 dB at maximum power.

Mowing with consideration for the user’s well-being

  • Exceptionally low vibration rate of 0.7 m/s² (compared to 4.5 m/s² for a petrol mower).
  • An easy-to-handle lawn mower: Single front wheel facilitating stability and work flow. 2 wheel-locking positions: free/idle wheels or guided steering – flexible and smooth.

Enables intensive mowing over extended periods

  • New electronic management by the IMS (insulated metallic substrate) circuit board. This allows for improved heat dissipation, absorbing power peaks during intensive mowing without reducing the blade speed.
  • Optimised anti-jam system, reverse rotation of the blades to remove excess grass from the housing while keeping the mower running.
  • The ICC (intelligent cutting control) sensors will now be available as an option (not standard) on the Easy 2. This patented feature exclusive to Pellenc allows the mower to detect the height and density of the grass and change the engine speed accordingly. This saves power as operators do not have to run the machine under full-load unnecessarily.

A cutting width of 60cm with height of cut between 25-75mm, 70 litre grass box capacity and two front swivel wheels ensure the Rasion Easy 2 is ultra-manoeuvrable. Weighing less than 30kgs and folding handlebars means that transportation between sites is effortless. The Rasion Easy 2 also has an IP54 water rating, which as time goes on will be the standard through the rest of the Pellenc tool range.

All Pellenc batteries and tools come complete with a three-year commercial warranty as standard – the first manufacturer to offer this on battery-powered tools. Pellenc is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Etesia UK.

T H WHITE To Launch New Models

T H WHITE To Launch New Models: The brands Ferris, Wright, Spider and Jensen are synonymous in their sectors with high quality, innovation and problem solving. In 2018, the UK distributor T H WHITE Machinery Imports is delighted to be once again supporting the IOG and SALTEX, showcasing these four brands with an increased visibility at the event, with a huge stand size of 175m2 to give them the space and presence they deserve, including two new product launches from market leaders Ferris and Spider. The team were thrilled last year to be awarded the Best Stand award in the ‘Open Space 60m2 + category’ and are hoping to replicate this success at the 2018 event with an even larger open stand, 50m2 bigger than the 2017 space, located at stand number H190. This year models from all four brands will be displayed together, showcasing the variety of innovative equipment available through the Machinery Imports business, including a range of Ferris zero-turn mowers, Wright stander mowers, Spider slope mowers and Jensen woodchippers.

From Ferris, the stand will feature a range of machines from the smallest model – the 400S, launched in 2018, up to the bigger mowers for larger-scale commercial grass cutting, including the all new ISX®800Z, launching at Saltex this year and available from 2019. Brand new from Ferris, the zero-turn, ride-on ISX®800Z features the latest technology to provide a commercial mower with superior performance, quality and comfort. The 132cm rear discharge deck features a factory-fitted mulching insert as well as Ferris iCD™ technology, with the user also benefitting from mowing speeds up to 16km/h. All new to the industry is the addition of a double wishbone suspension system, providing increased contact with the turf for more uniform, high quality mowing, as well as ensuring a more comfortable ride over bumps and dips in the ground with improved steering and handling.

The all new 400S, which was launched this year, features the patented Ferris all-round suspension as well as an innovative ‘Triple Deck’ with easy-to-change deck options including side and rear discharge, mulch and 50/50 rear and mulch discharge options. Not only that, all 400S models bought this year come with a free Service Jack for easy and quick maintenance and deck changes.

In addition, visitors will be able to see a selection of Wright zero-turn stander mowers and remote-controlled robotic slope mowers from industry leading Spider, with the ability to mow uneven, dangerous and sloping terrain up to 55° – all with zero-turn, four-wheel drive (called the ‘Dancing Step’ by its designers in Czech Republic) and ability to cut up to 7000m2/h. Launching from the Spider team this year is the all-new Spider X Line, their smallest commercial machine to date offering a compact profile but a huge performance. With an integrated winch capable of supporting the machine in mowing up to 55°, 6 km/h mowing speed, 65cm deck width and zero-turn drive, this 1m2 robotic mower has the cutting capacity of 3 operatives with brush cutters.

As well as pioneering groundcare machinery, Machinery Imports are pleased to display examples from the wide range of Jensen woodchippers available in the UK, the largest of any chipper manufacturer in the industry.

In support of the IOG and in attendance at SALTEX again this year, Jensen has models ranging from 6” to 12” in capacity, including trailed, tracked, PTO and custom options, as well as a turntable option on all 8” and above chippers. Jensen really does offer a chipper for all customers and situations and we’d be delighted to talk to visitors about the solutions on offer at our SALTEX stand.

Whilst horticulture and arboriculture can be very distinct sectors, we meet customers regularly that require machinery for both grass and tree care. This overlap affords us the opportunity to present all four of our brands together to provide a varied choice of machinery for those users who require a combination of horticulture and arboriculture equipment within their business, as well as knowledge and insight on both sectors to provide customers with the most accurate and useful information possible to make an informed buying decision.

The team are looking forward to meeting new and existing customers and dealers on the stand, H190, showing the vast selection of machinery on offer and discussing opportunities for free demonstrations and site visits throughout the coming months.

Extensive Display Of Polaris Models At LAMMA

Extensive Display Of Polaris Models At LAMMA: Polaris has lined up a vast range of 2018 models for the LAMMA show. Starting with the world’s best selling Sportsman ATVs, there are not many to match the off-road abilities these Polaris machines have to offer. Take the Sportsman 570 EPS. It boasts 44hp, Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and Engine Braking System (EBS) to complement the class leading suspension, and true, on demand All-Wheel Drive. A long-time favourite on the farm, the Sportsman is thoroughly at home negotiating the toughest terrain while providing the rider with an ergonomic, all-round work horse.

If you want an ATV that will carry two people, the Sportsman X2 570 EPS is the ideal choice, offering the features of the single-seater with the addition of Polaris 4 wheel Active Descent Control (ADC) for safely traversing the steepest hills in all types of weather. It’s the ideal solution for getting two people who need to work together into and out of the most inaccessible areas and safely down the steepest inclines, with optimum traction and control in all conditions.

For those of you looking for more power from your ATV, consider the Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 with its 952cc Prostar engine producing 90hp at 7,250 rpm. That is a massive amount of power in a quad and this Polaris has a 261kg payload capacity while featuring EPS, EBS and ADC. It also shares with the rest of the Sportsman range the facility for masses of storage space, with Polaris Lock & Ride, and a comprehensive choice of accessories.

The Polaris Ranger has been largely responsible for leading the charge in the rapid development of the side by side utility 4×4 vehicle market in the UK. For the farmer, the Ranger offers the perfect solution in off-road working transport capable of carrying up to six people, from the two-seater Ranger 570 to the Ranger Crew XP 1000 which accommodates six people, and in addition offers a load carrying dump box at the rear. Most importantly, the Polaris Ranger series gives you the choice of petrol, diesel or electric power, with the multiple options of Lock & Ride cabs to keep out the weather and a host of accessories to meet every need on the farm. As a highly capable alternative to an ATV, the Ranger 570 will take two people comfortably where they need to be across the roughest ground in all weathers. The electric Ranger, the EV, is equally proficient in rough terrain as an eco-friendly alternative, with its silent running 30hp on demand all-wheel drive.

For power, versatility and diesel economy nothing compares to the Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Diesel, sharing EPS, EBS and ADC with its Sportsman cousins and carrying three people in comfort. There’s a petrol equivalent in the Ranger XP 1000 EPS with the same features. Where there is a need to carry up to six people with room for equipment the Ranger Crew XP 1000 EPS fits perfectly as its name implies and with gamekeeping and shooting it has long become the first choice. For added convenience the six seater crew models are available in both petrol and diesel fuel option.

Also on display at LAMMA, the Polaris General 1000 EPS Deluxe Tractor, with ABS (Antilock Braking System) is the ultimate side by side for farm, work, hunting and leisure. Seen alongside its bigger brothers, Polaris is featuring the Sportsman 110 which offers a great way for youngsters to get started in quad biking. See the Polaris ranges at Stand No. R71 at LAMMA.
