After giving the go-ahead for a major investment at its Le Mans plant back in 2017, Claas recently showcased its €40 million spend.
Mark Hamilton of AgriQuip says, “Major has a trusted reputation around the world for high quality, durable machines, particularly in the design and engineering of their grass-cutting ranges. Our customers are always looking for hard-working machinery to suit New Zealand conditions and the Major products fit the bill.”
AgriQuip will stock the Major Cyclone Mower, a hybrid machine combining the best features of batwing and flail mowers, available in 2m to 6.3m working widths. The rotary cutter delivers the same shredding capabilities as a flail mower, but with only half the fuel consumption and power requirements. The Cyclone is said to be ideal for grassland maintenance, crop stubble shredding and orchard floor management, as well as scrubland control and land clearance.
The Major Swift Roller Mower is designed for fine turf applications including parklands, sports grounds and roadway maintenance, engineered to deliver a superior finish. A geardriven driveline eliminates the issues associated with belt-driven machines, while full-width rollers follow ground contours offering precise height control and eliminating scalping. Available in linkage mounted or trailed configurations, the Swift Roller Mowers are available in working widths from 1.9m to 7.3m.
