"Recent reports of operators being seriously injured in bank mowing have triggered demand for demos of the Attila SKF. It is now available with an optional dual-wheel kit for extra stability on uneven terrain and steep slopes of up to 25 degrees.
"This gives it a wider wheel base, is primarily used for mowing banks and slopes around buildings, playing fields and also on rough areas situated around golf courses.
"Differential lock with foot control allows you to retain control while on slopes, even if a drive wheel loses grip. It has a profiled mowing deck and reversible swing tip blades for mowing in difficult conditions."
Malin added: "Slopes and hillsides add dimension to landscapes but can be dangerous to mow without the correct type of kit. The big mistake is to use a standard ride-on mower as they can easily become unstable on gradients, putting the operator at risk."
Etesia UK offers free demonstrations of the Attila SKF and its sister machine, the Attila A180 ride-on brushcutter also suitable for mowing on banks and uneven terrain.
