Harrogate Week 2010 Preview: Lely UK to debut two new SOLO brushcutters

The two new professional performance brushcutters from the SOLO range will be exhibited at Harrogate Week 2010 by distributor Lely UK.

The Partners in Turfcare team will be showing off the 142 SB and 154 SB Series brushcutters, which are powered by SOLO two-stroke, petrol-driven engines.

The brushcutters are designed for tackling small and inaccessible grassed areas, tough grasses, overgrown brush and thickets around golf courses and other landscape amenity settings.

Both models come complete with a 250mm three-tooth grass-cutting blade and semi-automatic nylon head.

The nylon head offers a cutting circle of 430mm while the low fuel consumption and 0.7-litre tank capacity allow for longer working periods.

The brushcutters will feature alongside other SOLO products on the A5 stand.
