Brand new to the Ferris line-up in the UK, the new Ferris FW15 launches this month at the 2019 SALTEX event on stand H190, offering the brand’s most compact pedestrian mower footprint ever.
Featuring a host of Ferris’ unique features, the brand new FW15 is a variable hydrostatic mower with narrow footprint for trimming in tight spaces, around trees and alongside flower beds.
With a smooth, user friendly operation, the FW15 can be controlled and operated comfortably with just one hand, with adjustable speed control and handlebars with 4-position options for complete user comfort.
The compact 32” mulching deck is made from fabricated, reinforced steel with dual timed, Marbain 5mm thick cutting blades and spring assisted height of cut adjustment lever for quick and simple height changes.
With variable hydrostatic drive, the FW15 provides smooth traction for sloping and level terrain in forward and reverse.
Powered by a Stage 5 ready Honda GXV390 petrol engine, the FW15 has a ground speed of 6.4km/h in forward and 3.2km/h in reverse along with a 2.1 litre fuel tank for longer mowing time.
A special feature of the FW15 is the front wheel set-up, with ‘tweel’ style swivel wheels which can be locked into position as required.
Bill Johnston, Head of the Ferris UK importer business Machinery Imports, is excited to reveal the FW15 to the UK market at SALTEX. “This new addition to the line-up offers an exciting new avenue for our Ferris business in the UK," he said.
"The 32” cutting deck and compact profile of the FW15 provides a great addition to the trailer for any grounds maintenance professional, with all the exceptional features and build quality users already recognise from Ferris mowers across the country.”
What is believed to be the world’s first 6” turntable woodchipper will also be launched and on display at SALTEX this month, from the worlds original woodchipper manufacturer, Jensen.
Found on stand H190, visitors to the show are welcomed to come and see the new A530L turntable model for themselves and learn more about this brand-new innovation from the German woodchipper manufacturer.
The new woodchipper has also been shortlisted in the SALTEX 2019 Innovation Awards.
Jensen woodchippers were the world’s first woodchippers, designed in Maasbüll in 1884, so it is no surprise that they have always led the way with innovation in the sector.
The new 6” A530L turntable is the latest in a long line of unique developments available exclusively from Jensen, including bespoke custom builds, touch-sensor safety buttons and turntable functionality on all chippers 8” and above.
With the ability to turn the turntable up to 270 degrees, users can load the A530L from a range of angles around the machine and directly from the verge, not only saving time and effort, but ensuring improved safety for both the operators and members of the public in the vicinity.
The 270-degree rotating chute also means that users can fully configure the input and output directions for maximum efficiency and safety.
Available as a road-towable woodchipper, the new Jensen A530L turntable can be towed behind the operator's vehicle easily, and its galvanised steel chassis guarantees reduced maintenance, outstanding resistance to damage, corrosion and wear, and a hugely extended life expectancy compared to other woodchipper brands.
The 35hp petrol engine offers supreme power and efficiency, whilst ensuring less pollution and Nitrogen Oxides emissions, contributing to a cleaner environment. This is also recognised as a benefit for those working in Clean Air Zones and Low-Emission towns and cities or tendering for large scale projects where diesel machinery is unfavourable.
Offering the same power and performance as the standard A530L, our most popular model and highly favoured by the industry, the A530L turntable can process up to 15m3/h of timber and brash, with additional benefits including electronic safety sensors fitted as standard, comprehensive toolkit fitted to the machine, built in control box to record hours and servicing intervals, and incorporated storage box.
