40hp remote controlled mower

RC40

Designed especially for tackling tough terrain, the ROBOCUT2 RC40 features a low center of gravity design and durable rubber tracks that make it an outstanding all-terrain mowing machine, capable of mastering slopes up to 55 degrees whilst enhancing operator safety by removing them from the danger zone.

Power comes from a 40hp, three-cylinder, Yanmar diesel engine that uses a DPF filter system to ensure it meets the latest Stage V emissions regulations without the need for Adblue.

Robust build quality

ROBOCUT has been developed in partnership with Hatz and can be fitted with flail heads up to 1.9m for substantially higher output. With a lower centre of gravity and perfect 50/50 weight distribution, ROBOCUT has maximum stability and performance in all terrain.

Responsive remote control unit

With a 150m working range, the remote control features a high visibility digital display showing RPM, engine temperature, and signal strength. The battery dock stores and charges one of the two remote control battery packs for quick change over and reduced downtime.

Increased productivity

Boasting a high-performance engine, outstanding manoeuvrability, and the widest flail head in its class, ROBOCUT tackles tasks that are normally completed by hand - dramatically speeding up the job and allowing you to use your time more efficiently.
