The three new models offer "extreme versatility" with the ability to cut, collect and mulch without the need for an accessory. Mowing with or without collection can be done in all conditions as well as high-quality mulching. All new models are now also available with the new rear roller kit for easy striping.
Etesia is also promoting the cost effectiveness of the new machines, claiming a 33 per cent energy saving compared to petrol, along with low maintenance and operating costs.
Built upon the DUOCUT concept of combining 100 per cent collection and 100 per cent mulching decks together, the new PRO 46 models claim to deliver high performance without compromising the results of either of the functions. Both models crush the grass finely, even if it is long and wet, providing excellent collection abilities while the grass box is always filled to capacity.
No tool or blade changes are necessary to move between the mowing and mulching functions, apart from attaching or detaching a removable insert from under the deck. The smooth-surfaced insert completes the shape of the deck and enables the grass to move easily for superior mulching.
Both the PACS and PACTS have a cutting width of 46cm with seven easily-adjustable cutting heights ranging from 28-85mm. The NACS model has a 41cm cutting width. The three new models come complete with a grass box capacity of 50 litres.
The new battery-powered pedestrian models are driven by a brushless electric motor powered by a 36V/21Ah lithium polymer accumulator with an activation button and a charge display. Zero emission of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, smoke and particles ensure silent and environmentally responsible mowing.
