Irus tackles the toughest jobs

Irus remote mowers are imported by Loxston’s Groundcare.

The machines have been used in extreme situations from reservoir banks to railway embankments, where vegetation must be controlled without compromising operator safety.

Irus remote control mowers will go where standard walk behind or ride on mowers cannot go safely being able to run on slopes of up to 50°. Radio control ranges of up to 300m ensure that operators are always out of harm’s way.

Launched at the recent LAMMA show is UK was the Twin 50hp high performance dual mounted tool carrier.

Pete explains: “This machine is unique in the fact that there is no front or back to the machine, so an implement can be mounted at either end, which gives many advantages.”

“On steep difficult surfaces, most surface damage is created on the turns, which also impact on workrates - with the Twin there is no need to turn, as the machine can traverse back and forth.”

In areas where cut grass needs to be removed from the surface, a mower can be fitted at one end and band rake at the other and for forestry applications a forest mulcher can be fitted at one end and a stump grinder or 3500kg Skidder winch at the other. Implement side shift gives additional reach in tricky areas.

The Irus Twin is powered by a Kubota high torque non-turbo engine and offers 100 l/min hydraulic power for more demanding implements.

Adjustable track width further increases stability, and Pete adds: “There is no machine more versatile in difficult and awkward areas.”
