McConnel MOTION Control

McConnel’s MOTION control system is an easy-to-master seven-function (six proportional) controller which offers light and precise fingertip control of complex manoeuvres and operations. The precise ‘short-stick’ system has been created to be rugged, responsive and reliable.

McConnel’s signature features – Parallel-Arm and Hy-Reach geometry – are a standard part of the design, as are seam welded c-section arms and fully bushed pivot points to reduce stress and ensure greater durability. Hydraulic Power Slew is another standard feature which enables safe, compact transport, also providing operators with the flexibility to cut precisely in tight corners.

Also arriving in stock is the McConnel PA6565T with a reach of 6.5m and high-performance 65hp hydraulics. A value for money machine for contractors and local government, the 65-series has the reach and power to tackle extensive verge-mowing and hedge-cutting duties. The PA6565T is built from super-strength Domex steel so is extremely robust. Special features of the 66-series include SoftStart rotor engagement, hydraulic safety breakaway, and a cushioned top link for increased longevity.
