Ransomes Jacobsen's new R-311 mower boasts limited slip differential

Ransomes Jacobsen has launched a new batwing rotary mower to replace an older model with an overhauled operator platform.

The Jacobsen R-311 wide-area mower replaces the Jacobsen HR-5111 and boasts a more spacious cockpit with a high-spec air-suspension seat.

The 2.2-litre, 45hp Kubota diesel engine is more economical on fuel and offers over eight hours of operating time.

"It includes a new limited slip differential, which requires no input from the operator, and more powerful hydraulic drive motor," said a representative

Cutting decks feature seven bevelled blades, three in the front and two in each wing. All have individual hydraulic drive motors for reliability and lower maintenance.

"Safety is enhanced with a new standard folding ROPS for easier loading and storage and when mowing around trees with low branches."

Manuel Ruiz, product manager, said: "The previous HR-5111 was a good machine, but we have raised the bar with the new R-311.

"It's quieter, more fuel efficient, more comfortable for the operator, easier to maintain and built to handle the toughest conditions."
