McConnel launches next-generation compact Power Arm

McConnel has added the world’s first compact Power Arm with Variable Forward Reach (VFR) to its 30-Series range, making it ideal for landscape, amenities and ground-care professionals and local government contractors.

Delivering market-leading manoeuvrability, precision and productivity, the 4.8m reach PA4830 VFR features an innovative new armset created from Strenx and Hardox steel that is more than five per cent lighter while adding 0.5m reach over the PA4330.

The benefits from the new armset include: improved comfort and visibility, greater precision and faster working speeds when operating in confined environments or around obstacles such as sign-posts and street furniture.

The PA4830’s advanced new VFR technology enables customers to extend the arm 0.9m forward and 0.9m backward, positioning the attachment at any point along the cutting range and dramatically expanding the working area.

Featuring 30hp totally independent hydraulics the PA4830 can be mounted to a wide range of utility vehicles and compact tractors and can be specified as a left or right-hand cut.

The PA4830 has been redesigned throughout to take advantage of the latest breakthroughs in technology and comes with a suite of new features and including:

  • 95 Litre oil tank (increased from 80ltrs)
  • Safety breakback to protect the armset on contact with an obstacle.
  • Arm suspension for smoother operation and armset protection
  • Lift and angle float
  • Greaseless bushes for reduced maintenance
  • Improved hose routing for enhanced protection
  • Road lighting kit

The PA4830 is controlled by the Mini Motion joystick controller designed for McConnel’s compact Power Arm range, delivering the best in precision and manoeuvrability.It features a progressive mini joystick with two easy-access hat switches providing proportional control of up to five different services.

A comprehensive range of attachments can be fitted to the PA4830 including 1.0 and 1.2m supercut flailheads, rotary heads, sawheads and cutterbars.

McConnel marketing manager Wayne Brown said: “The PA4830 offers new levels of manoeuvrability and refinement for compact Power Arm users and sets new standards for productivity and precision.

"With longer reach, greater arm strength, and better visibility and comfort than any other compact machine it helps verge-mowing and hedge-cutting professionals to work harder, smarter, and faster than before.”
