Major Equipment upgrades for Swift Roller Mowers

Published:  19 July, 2018

Major Equipment has announced a series of upgrades to their tractor-mounted Swift Roller Mowers.

The mowers are available in working widths from 1.9m to 5.4m and are built light to allow them to be used on smaller compact tractors but use Strenx 700 MC high-yield steel, which is stronger than steel traditionally used in machinery.

The roller mowers’ custom designed gearbox has been upgraded for improved and consistent mowing and high speed blade tips also offer higher output. 

And new mower bodies are being galvanised using zinc hot-dip galvanisation for added protection from harsh exterior conditions. Major says  hot-dip coating of the metal doubles the life span compared with painting and will protect steel from corrosion in most atmospheric conditions for 25 to 30 years.

Major has also introduced a three-year professional warranty for all models in their Swift Roller Mower range.
