Commercial director Stuart Darbyshire said he had seen the PRO 46 PBE push and PBTS self-propelled models in demonstration and mainly chose them because of "Etesia’s excellent reliability record over the last ten years."

He said: "When we looked at reliability versus cost, the Etesia mowers came out on top."

He added that the company had tried cheaper products by other firms but had found they were not as successful or reliable.

The company normally replaces its mowers every two years.

The single bladed Etesia PRO46 PBE push and PRO46 PBTS self-propelled models have a 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine. Cutting width is 46cm, the detachable grass box, with an indicator to show how full it is, has a capacity of 52 litres, and overall weight is just 37kg.

The handlebars are ergonomically shaped and mounted and new soft-touch controls have been designed to reduce pressure on operators’ hands. There are six models available in the range, with options including a mulching facility.
