LAMMA 2015 sees the introduction of several new machines from Wessex International.

Breaking new ground for councils and farms are the Wessex tractor mounted hedge cutters with a 190º to 235º flail head angle and 115º left to right high performance hydraulic arm system. They feature an overlapping spiral rotor with two spiral rows, replaceable skids and cable or electro hydraulic in-cab controls. In two versions these are ideal for covering 400 to 500 hours a year.

There are three new models of agricultural verge mowers in various working widths from 1.6m to 2.3m, featuring 50º to 90º cutting, ideal for verges and hedges. These is the choice of central and offset mowing with a hydraulic arm and side shift, no chains or holders for transport mode, and a floating frame to follow ground contours. With a six row spiral rotor you can choose hammer or Y pattern flails and there’s an adjustable rear roller.

The new range of Wessex Batwing mower includes models from 4.8m to 8m working width and floating wings with a plus or minus 15º. Overlapping blades optimise the shredding behind the tractor wheels and there are baffles beneath the deck for even grass distribution and anti-scalp discs to limit scalping. The gear boxes have slip clutch protection and there is a rear deflector with chain curtain to avoid rear projections. For transport the whole unit folds to below 2.5m at ninety degrees and the mower has hydro pneumatic suspension together with road legal lighting and warning signs. PTO driven with hydraulic lift, the unit has easy adjustable cutting height and is ideal for rough cutting, stubble and rape.

New flail mowers feature in 2.5m and 2.8m widths with large hammer flails and front or rear mounting. Side skis are removable, there is a double wall frame, a shredding blade and a floating linkage to follow ground contours. These mowers have an integrated gearbox overrun, offer easy cutting height and are suitable for Cat 1 and Cat 2 linkage

The Wessex display also includes the Scrubmaster rotary slasher, Hustler Bale Feeders, SweepEx push brooms and the Wessex logsplitter. LAMMA stand no. R67. Wessex International 01264 345870
