Every Billy Goat brush cutter has a heavy-duty blade spindle that’s reinforced in four directions while the fixed rear discharging decks provide excellent stability in deep vegetation.

A fixed deck powerhouse

The BC2601HM series commercial-duty brush cutter has a 26″/ 66 cm wide fixed deck to provide excellent stability in deep vegetation.

The mechanical transaxle, featuring three speeds forward and one reverse, is ideal for clearing meadows and fields or cutting paths and trails wherever dense brush and weeds present a clean-up challenge.

The robust blade spindle is reinforced on four sides to tackle the toughest cutting conditions, including thick brushes, grass and weeds over 180 cm tall, and saplings up to 5 cm diameter. For greater comfort and high productivity, forward and reverse controls are conveniently placed at the operator’s fingertips.

A heavy-duty pivoting deck brush cutter

The BC2601HH series provides heavy-duty power to dramatically improve productivity and profitability.

It has a 26″/ 66 cm wide pivoting deck with high top speeds for improved speed and cut quality, and can cut saplings and brushes all at a rate of just under an acre of brush per hour. Engineered to glide over uneven terrain, the pivoting brush deck hugs the ground for a better cut. This minimises scalping and improves traction by keeping the weight of the machine on its drive wheels.

This nature-taming performer comes standard with a Tuff Torq™ variable hydrostatic transmission featuring fully automatic Enhanced Traction Control (ETC), offering superior traction in wet or uneven conditions.

A hill-side wonder

The BC2601HHC series, offers all the great features of the BC Series with pivoting deck and variable Tuff Torq™ hydrostatic transmission but also has the benefit of lockable front caster wheels to help hold hillsides making it perfect for use on hilly and steep terrain. The caster, swivel wheels also allow the brush cutter more mobility when being turned.

Ergonomically-angled handles with padded grips offer comfort and protection and the conveniently located swivelling front caster wheels controls mean that the user need never take their hands off the machine to shift gears.

Brush cutting tractors for the ultimate in performance and comfort

The Billy Goat Outback® ride-on brush cutters have set the highest standard for professional brush cutting equipment on the market. The Outback® Tractors combine the comfort and driving experience of a lawn tractor with ultimate performance in high grass conditions, often found in typical applications like orchards, vineyards, private meadows, camping grounds and holiday homes.

The Tuff Torq® transaxles provide plenty of traction while the user-friendly dashboard and comfortable seat make for a great operator experience.

The Outback® ride-on brush cutters are available in two-wheel drive (BCT4322BCE) and four-wheel drive options (BCT4323BCE).

A four-wheel drive for hard-to-reach places

The BCR3628BVECE Outback® 4WD Rider has been designed with a low centre of gravity in combination with a four-wheel drive system that enables it to tackle those hard-to-reach places that wouldn’t have been accessible to traditional machines.

The spacious platform provides sufficient space and comfort for the operator. The heavy-duty 92cm mower deck is equipped with swing-back cutter blades that swing away when accidental contact is made with a solid object. These features help protect the mower deck and cutter blades from accidental damage. For those with more space to look after, these features are all also available in the BCR4328BVECE, which has a wider, 110cm cutting deck.

Billy Goat products are available nationwide through Henton & Chattell’s dealer network.

Stock Up On Pest Control For Warmer Winter Months

Stock Up On Pest Control For Warmer Winter Months: It is becoming clear that the planet is becoming warmer and warmer each year, and particularly in 2018 gardens have experienced the full force of Mother Nature. From the Beast from the East in March bringing endless amounts of snow to the scorching hot summer in July, the growth of grass, plants and trees may have taken a hit. But as we coast into winter, we have been experiencing increasingly mild temperatures for this time of year – with a number of pests staying put in the garden instead of hibernating away as they would usually.

Because of this warmer winter weather, it is creating the perfect breeding ground for slugs to still attack and wreak havoc in your garden, even in the winter. This is why it is important to stock up and take control with pest solutions now in preparation for the uncertain weather temperatures ahead.

Stock Up On Pest Control For Warmer Winter Months

The slug killer, Nemaslug by BASF, offers a biological solution to pest control and can protect your vegetables, fruit, flowers, shrubs and trees from a variety of pests – even in December. To use, all you do is mix the product with water and apply from a watering can with a coarse rose over the soil area. The temperature of the soil you are treating should be nothing lower than 5 degrees Celsius, which for December this would usually pose an issue, but for the climatic weather, it is not been a problem this year. Also, there is no need to keep children or pets away from treated areas and the whole programme is entirely biological.

Individual slugs are capable of breeding throughout the year but do so typically in times of favourable conditions, warm and wet weather, and it would seem even in December and January. If you were to leave the slugs be until the spring season, which is when pest control typically begins, you would find foliar damage which would be severe enough to cause significant plant loss on a vast number of susceptible crops very early in the season.

Nemaslug orders can be placed online, with an entire season’s worth being sent out as and when needed. This means that you can tackle the slugs in the garden now but also be prepared for the spring and summer months ahead – allowing you to concentrate on planting and growing in your garden, safe in the knowledge that your pest control is taken care of.
