Take the many advantages of an out front mower and give it the ability to cut both long grass and sports turf and you’re surely on to a winner. The Wessex ProLIne FRX-150 is just such a mower, designed to hitch up to most leading out front power units with Power Take Off. The FRX-150 has rapidly found favour with councils and contractors, offering the benefits of having a neat and compact all-round mower which is effectively two mowers in one.
Cutting verges calls for excellent visibility and maneuverability in confined areas with the ability to work around road signs, trees and other obstacles. It also demands a mower that will cut long grass quickly and effectively. The FRX-150 is an out front flail mower and delivers in that respect leaving a far superior cut quality on long growth than a rotary mower. What it also does is give an exceptional, premium finish on sports turf. The compact design is close-coupled to the power unit, minimising weight on the linkage and the ContiFlow deck ensures maximum suction effect, making it capable across a wide range of applications. The deck follows contours accurately with its own wheels and a full width rear roller and offers a 1.5m working width finish.
The capability to work at high speed without swathing the grass, combined with the ability to leave a fine finish, as well as tackling long growth, makes this a two in one mower that represents a major cost saving. It’s also a tough deck with a heavy duty right angle drive gearbox and 305mm rotor shaft. The roller is fitted with integral bearings for a long service life and the mower comes with puncture proof tyres.
Combine ease of use, a simple cutting height adjustment and the benefits of flail mowing and it’s easy to see why the Wessex ProLine FRX-150 has become such a popular choice. It makes perfect partner for power units from Kubota, Stiga, John Deere, Iseki, Toro, Shibaura and other similar machines.
