Cylinder Mowers

These mowers we specialise in and usually have a choice available in stock

Cylinder mowers are the most popular mowers that we sell.  Cylinder is named for the red spiral part that turns, (forming a cylinder when spinning), and this blade cuts against a fixed bottom blade.  This gives a positive cut, one blade against another, like scissors, which gives a clean controllable cut, where a nice finish is required. Examples of cuts that are normally produced using a cylinder mower are; large lawns, sports fields, cricket grounds, football pitches and golf fairways. The options in cylinder mowers are; the 2130 highway, the 2250 parkway, the 3520 commander and sets of gangs.

Ransomes Highway 2130 Ride on Cylinder Mower

Nearly always available and a brilliant machine. This is a self-propelled machine with Kubota 4 cylinder 33 hp. diesel engine and 3 cutter heads with 200mm diameter sports cutters. Generally considered a heavy duty commercial machine like most of the mowers we sell, they are designed to cut large areas regularly, working every day and lasting many years. Cut width approx 7’. A much improved machine over the old model (213) with much improved transmission and wheel motors, a more powerful engine, better cutter heads and easier to adjust and set up. Can be 4 wheel drive or just 2. Can have roll bar, road lights etc. Cab can be available but are rare. The advantage with these machines is that you do not need a tractor to mow grass. We also repair and service these machines, and stock spare engines, transmissions, cutter heads, pumps, in fact virtually everything for them, which is why we can offer such a comprehensive warranty. No facility to collect grass, but the way it cuts ‘sprinkles’ grass back into ground. Various options available in terms of age & condition. Ideal for cricket outfields, other sports fields or general mowing where nice finish is required. Floating heads can be fitted if required.
