Bomford Turner unveiled the UK’s first remotely controlled mower to feature extendible tracks for increased stability on steep terrain at LAMMA 2016.
Just as at home on steep slopes as on flatter areas it can work on terrains angled up to 55 degrees.
Each of the two tracks can be independently extended by 250mm by widening the footprint to help stability and grip.
To protect the engine, bearings and components, a tough underbody skin is structurally integrated into the frame, preventing ingress of debris, fragments and grit.
A roll bar, integrated into the chassis, can also be used to hoist the vehicle if needed. In addition to a 4-point attachment system for lifting, the frame includes front and rear fastening systems for optional tools and equipment. Flashing LEDs and headlights ensure high visibility during operation.
For particularly difficult or steep conditions, the operator can also remotely extend each track width individually by 250mm / 10”, increasing the footprint for added stability and grip.
