New MP495 and MP655 five unit cylinder mowers
 
 
Ipswich, Suffolk (June 18, 2015) Ransomes Jacobsen, the manufacturer of commercial mowing equipment, has launched the next two machines in a series of new mowers manufactured at their European headquarters in Ipswich. Primarily targeted at the municipal sector, the MP495/MP655 range provides yet more options from a single design platform and are replacements for the Ransomes Commander, the stalwart of municipal wide area cylinder mowers launched back in 1993.
 
Following on from the launch of the MP493 and MP653 wide area rotary mowers last autumn, these new five unit cylinder mowers are powered by the same 49hp and 65hp Kubota diesel engines and use a standard platform, enhancing the commonality between each machine for ease of production, operator use and maintenance.
 
The option of two engines enables the end user to maximise productivity by selecting their cutting parameters and then appropriately matching them to engine power, environmental legislation, fuel economy and fitting of additional accessories such as cabs.
 
The use of lightweight, high strength steel results in a significant reduction in gross weight which contributes to greater fuel savings, a reduction in trailer weight requirements and reduced ground pressure.
 
An ISO-mounted operator platform reduces noise and vibration levels for the operator, with or without a cab fitted and Q-Amp speed reactive steering matches steering response for the operator, smoothing out small movements to help maintain straight lines, while remaining in tight turns when mowing around objects such as trees and benches.
 
The choice of cutting units remains with Magna 250 fixed head cylinders for general maintenance work and Sport 200 fixed and floating head cylinders for high quality turf maintenance.
 
The rear outer cutting units fold up and rearwards for transport providing excellent sideways visibility for the operator when driving on the road and distributes weight for improved stability and ride quality. The front units also lift and fold providing a transport width of just 1.89 metres. All units are held in place for transport with an electrically-operated fail-safe locking system.
