All Terrain 4WD Mower – a Growing Market
The Australian market for All Terrain & 4WD mowing equipment is growing exponentially, as less favourable acreage land is now being subdivided and new property owners are finding themselves trying to maintain steeper areas; particularly where views are sought. This is the case right across Australia, particularly in any area within the Great Dividing Range or Coastal Ranges.
As more retirees head to acreage with the view of maintaining their own property themselves PLUS having the ability to have it well groomed, regardless of how wet the season is, we are seeing a huge growth in the “All Terrain” market segment.
The Razorback Mower Platform
The fundamental engineering beneath the Razorback is more closely related to an excavator than a traditional lawn mower! Each machine is hand built, all components are heavy duty, designed for longevity. These units have evolved over several decades, the F1 platform that is the chassis, mechanical 4WD system, planetary front wheel drive units, shaft driven deck and cutter blades are all shared across the Razorback platform. This provides a systematic approach to manufacture and spare parts support, both major factors to consider when buying a mower of this calibre.
The mower is equipped with a steering column that can be telescoped in or out, plus the steering wheel angle can also be altered together with the seat which has a fully adjustable 3 position suspension seat, complete with a movable back rest. The unit can literally be tailored to fit the operator, a complete comfort package!
All Razorbacks are deliberately designed to have a very low centre of gravity for steep incline work. This has resulted in an industry leading EU certification of up to 25 degrees gradability, with 30 degrees stability angle left and right – depending on the model.
These statistics are literally displayed on every mower; testament to the master engineering behind each machine.
