White's World


by T H WHITE on December 2, 2019

Ferris, Wright, Spider and Jensen have celebrated another successful year at SALTEX – the leading grounds maintenance show held at the NEC.

11 machines including three new models were shown on a 80m2 stand. As well as showcasing the recently launched ISX™800 – the newest ride-on zero turn mower from Ferris, the team was proud to launch the all new FW15, a brand new 32” mulching pedestrian mower. The FW15 is now the smallest mower in the Ferris line-up, capable of maintaining tight spaces while retaining all the recognised Ferris benefits such as hydrostatic drive, reinforced steel deck and single hand operation. 

Visitors to the stand were also interested to see the 10.5” ‘tweel-style’ front wheels of the FW15, which are fitted to swivel mountings which can be latched into fixed position, providing flexibility for mowing on level and sloping ground.

Also launched at the show was the new Jensen A530 turntable woodchipper. Believed to be the only current 6” petrol woodchipper with turntable functionality, the A530 promises improved safety and efficiency, with operators loading the chipper from the verge, avoiding the need to work on highways, lift heavy timber further around the machine or risk danger to the public.

The versatile new A530 turntable is an adaptation of the hugely popular A530L machine, with 35hp petrol engine, galvanised steel chassis, hydraulic infeed rollers and electronic safety sensors.

From Spider, visitors were able to see the final version of the X-Liner model. With a commercial Honda engine, patented 4wd and 4-wheel steer drive, integrated winch and climbing ability of up to 55°, the compact X-Liner offers productivity, safety, high cut quality and so much more.

Also on show were the popular Sport I and Stander Small Frame stand-on mowers from Wright.
