Enhanced productivity

By speeding up mowing operations that normally have to be carried out by hand, the Barrier Mower is an important labour-saving device which saves contractors time and money and reduces disruption to motorists by removing the need for coning off sections of road.

Powerful cutting action

Each rotary head features a heavy-duty rubber turntable on the outside rim which grips an obstacle and enables the heads to part automatically without the risk of damage to the machine – leaving behind a fine-cut finish.
