STIHL to make BTME Debut in January 2019
STIHL have announced that they will be attending the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association’s BTME exhibition for the first time in 2019.
Taking place at the Harrogate International Centre from January 22-24, STIHL will be using BIGGA’s show to showcase its full range of grounds care products, including its new range of professional lawn mowers.
The company’s full range will be on display, including the RM 756 GC (below), the RM 655 RS rear roller mower and the RM 4 RTP mulching mower. All created for professional use on larger areas, each mower within the collection is described by the company as being built for maximum durability and comfort for prolonged use.
Features of the RM 756 GC professional lawn mower include a solid mono handlebar that makes emptying the 80-litre grass box simple, whilst low vibration figures allow the mower to be used in comfort for a full working day. In addition, it comes with a 3-speed gearbox and a brake blade clutch mechanism to increase working speed and reduce machine down time. The deck housing is made from high quality magnesium to maintain durability and reduce weight, whereas the full size polymer deck insert offers impact protection, further improving durability.
The RM 655 RS benefits from a stainless steel driven metal roller. Fitted with a mono-comfort handle as standard, the body design of the new mower allows for easy access and maintenance of working parts such as drive cables, pulleys and the drive belt. The optimised rear deflector flap works with the mono-comfort handle, improving access to the grass box and making emptying easier. The unit also features Blade Brake Clutch (BBC).
The RM 4 RTP is a 1-speed drive mulching lawn mower. The company says the self-propelled machine features anti-vibration elements, skirt protectors and a powerful engine. Features such as SmartChoke, double ball-bearing wheels and excellent grip aid operation while front and rear carrying handles aid transportation.
STIHL will be located on stand 108 in the Blue Zone at BTME.
