Supplied by the Ilminster based Loxston Groundcare dealership, national landscaping and groundscare services provider idverde has taken delivery of a second Reform Metrac. Its recent acquisition is an H7RX, to be used primarily for highway maintenance work.

Simon Richard, the UK agent for the Reform specialist bank tractor range, commented: ‘The 4-speed hydrostatic drive 70hp Reform Metrac H7RX, is the spearhead of the companies mid-range, offering the professional and local authority user a compact power unit tailor-made for a wide range of municipal tasks, including safe operation on steep slopes up to 45-degree angles to directly address operator health and safety issues.'

The H7RX's low centre of gravity, combined with constant power hydrostatic drive provides maximum ground contact and the suspended front axle ensures that all four wheels have permanent ground contact even on uneven terrain. Additionally, an inching pedal means the operator can work around trees, shrubs etc, with confidence. Depending on the task, a selection can be made between four-wheel, front-wheel, rear-wheel or continuously-adjustable crab steering mode.
