John O'Connor grounds maintenance chooses Hayter

One of the UK's biggest privately owned independent grounds-upkeep firms has taken its fleet of Hayter triple-height mowers to 50.

The seven LT 322 machines for John O'Conner Grounds Maintenance will be used on golf courses, bowling greens, parks, highway grass and housing areas.

Workshop manager Rob Goater said he chose the kit for its versatility and low operating costs.

"The most important benefits are that almost everything is accessible from the top and parts are interchangeable between machines."

This minimised downtime and cut operating costs, he said. The kit joins five-unit cylinder mowers and seven-unit trailed mowers.

Goater said staff liked the seating position - high and forward for ease of vision and to minimise amounts of debris flying into the cabin. George Browns sold the kit.
