Hayter LT324

In its image-boosting dark green livery, the Hayter triple mower oozes heritage and tradition. Now in its 60th year, the company has a history and reputation to uphold — and the LT324 is not going to let it down. This machine boasts high rates and is built to last.
The strong rear axle incorporates a steering shockload protection system, so this should be a good machine for working in rough terrain and for bumping up the kerbs to work on roadside verges. It also protects the rear components against potential damage.
Performance is boosted by a Kubota V1505 direct-injection engine. Fuel-efficient and capable of packing a serious punch, this power pack is going to be easy to maintain and shouldn’t let you down. Combined with the two-range hydrostatic transmission, four-wheel drive and foot-operated differential lock, we reckon the 324 has all the muscle needed to meet those tough contracts. Inter-site travel speed is 22km/h.
It’s clear that Hayter has given considerable thought to operator comfort. The platform is open and uncluttered and the seat is fully adjustable. And just look at the height. The operator sits in a commanding position and has an unimpeded view of the mowing. The cutting heads — 200mm or 250mm cylinders — lift and lower independently.
But what really sells this machine is the accessibility for servicing and maintenance. We have never seen anything like it — the platform and engine cover both lift and tilt to allow the mechanic to get at all the components. There are a lot of them but the layout is clear and easy to follow. When Hayter sells a machine, a representative explains where and how often to grease, where to check the oil and all the other crucial maintenance points. There should be no excuse for not getting the best out of this mower.
