It has a 2.5m reach with a fair topping out height as well. This one has an 80cm cutting head with adjustable rear roller, but it can come with a 60cm head for those especially awkward hedges. There is also an easy-fit reciprocating bar — fitting it is a matter of four bolts and connecting the hydraulics.
For a compact-tractor hedgecutter, this one gives you a lot of the features of a bigger commercial unit. The machine has its own independent hydraulics and is equipped with a reverse drive head as standard so you can flail grass as well as cut hedges. The head is fully floating so if you are verge cutting you can put it down to float and follow contours. As an optional extra you can also have the main boom float if doing a lot of verging.
But where it really scores is in the arm movement. Our tester is impressed with the smoothness of operation.
“They seem to have got it down to a fine art. Movement is very precise, it doesn’t wander on the back of the hitch,” he says. “It’s giving the compact tractor a commercial-quality hedgecutter.”
