“This looks like a good system on the linkage. It is adjustable on the top linkage arms and it should be a lot easier than fiddling about with A-frames and bolts. But we really need to try it,” he suggests.
The TD42 has a maximum height of 2.45m for horizontal cutting and a maximum vertical cut height of 4.60m. It has a minimum tractor requirement of 50hp and tractor weight of 2,000kg. The double-skinned flail housing looks remarkably strong.
The other members of the team have spotted the TA26 — a compact hedgecutter with 1.6m horizontal cutting height, three-metre vertical cut and 2.6m horizontal reach.
It needs a 20hp to 35hp tractor with 700kg weight behind it and it should be at least one metre wide.
“It’s nice and simple to use but a good step up from a handheld trimmer,” says our tester. And he can’t believe the price. It’s only £1,000 more for electric push-button controls.
Could this be the hedgecutter the team is looking for?
