McCONNEL gave UK customers a first look at a range of new products and Power Arm enhancements at LAMMA 2019 where the machines made their official show debut.
The products include an all-new Telescopic, Variable Forward Reach arm-set (Tele-VFR), a new Revolution power arm control system, new Power Arm cutterbars, sawheads and range of flail mowers. The company also showcased its new Robocut range of remote controlled mowers to the agricultural sector for the first time.
Improved arm geometry, increased strength and additional head angling are the key benefits of McConnel’s new 6.5m Tele-VFR arm-set. The new design increases reach in all directions whilst also improving close-in cutting performance.
The use of larger box section, Strenx steel and wider 60mm pivot pins further enhance the strength and durability of the arm. The head angling linkage has also seen significant change with the repositioning of the angling ram. The new layout results in a compact design, and neat protected hose routing, whilst providing the attachment with greater torque and consistent angle rotation.
McConnel’s flagship control system, Revolution, has received a major overhaul for 2019 with a new compact digital display, new operating system, soft-touch armrest and additional new features such as the ability to quickly change between pre-set hedgecutting to verge mowing setting at a touch of a button.
For the first time, Revolution control can now also be specified with a new mini joystick control for true fingertip control.
The new McConnel Robocut range transforms remote controlled slope mowing. Three models, the RC56, RC75 and RC28 surpass all expectations with an exciting new ground up design and the very latest technological advancements and refinement.
The new models boast more power, an advanced feature set and a revolutionary control system for greater output, safety and control.
Also showcased at LAMMA 2019, the new range of in-house designed and built flail mowers and Power Arm attachments, including sawheads and cutter bars, completed the McConnel line-up.
