    COMPARISON

    COMPARED TO TRACTORS AND RIDE-ON MOWERS

    Spider Winch Working
    • When performing road-side mowing, it creates minimal interference with road traffic
    • Ordinarily would not require a lane closure or Stop-go traffic wardens etc
    • Spider Mower requires only a standard car or utility to transport to site
    • Avoid wet weather causing a lost day of mowing. It is often too hazardous to put a tractor or ride-on-mower on wet slopes, because of the potential of loss of control, poor traction or damage and rutting to the ground; the Spider Mower can continue to work
    • Repeated wet weather can create a substantial back log of work, that quickly becomes heavily overgrown in Summer. When dry conditions finally return to allow conventional machines back on to the slopes, the mowing is heavy and slow work. Spider Mower prevents the situation developing by allowing mowing in all conditions to keep growth under control
    • In wet conditions, access to some sites may be difficult for heavier equipment such as tractors. Spider Mower is light, nimble and handles access to difficult situations
    • The Spider Mower is low and agile and can access difficult sites whether restricted by; low clearance, narrow access, steep access, many trees etc
    • The Spider Mower mows in every direction. It does not need to be turned around at the end of a pass. With every movement it is mowing for maximum productivity

    COMPARED TO BRUSH-CUTTERS

    • Highly productive cutting width as shown in the typical cutting rates
    • Longer working time without fatigue

    ERGONOMICS - LOW FATIGUE

    Spider Low Fatigue Ergonomics
    • Ergonomic controls are light and easy
    • Steering and speed/direction is done by joystick controls
    • Fatigue is reduced by eliminating the manual activity associated with brush cutters
    • No weight bearing
    • No direct contact with vibration and harshness
    • Engine noise is not directly adjacent to operator

    HIGH PRODUCTIVITY

    The table shows the typical range of productivity rates that could be expected from the Spider Mower. Rate is affected the most by the degree of slope and ground conditions, grass density and operator experience.
