Hi Lawns maintainers,
I didn't get much of a response to my query on what lawnmowers clubs are
using but those I did get (mainly off the list) were very useful and the
comments are appreciated.
Some clubs are using electric mowers but a wide (900 mm) electric mower
probably needs a three phase supply which we don't have available.
We are still considering a few different options but are tending to
focus in on a petrol driven walk-behind mower. Unfortunately there are
not a lot of wide cylinder type mowers on the market and some (eg Scott
Bonnar and M.E.Y.) are no longer being manufactured.
A mower that looks promising, at least on paper, is the MowMaster DC26T,
a 36 inch wide mower manufactured in WA. Is anyone on this list using
such a mower and, if so, I would be interested in hearing how it
performs, its reliability etc
