For the first time Spider mowers will be attending Safety & Health Expo this year. The show – Europe’s leading health and safety event – takes place from 18-20 June at ExCel, London.
Spider mowers are commercial remote-controlled mowers designed for use in high-risk areas where it is considered unsafe to cut grass with a traditional walk-behind mower or ride-on lawnmower, such as alongside highways and railway tracks; beside waterways and reservoirs; at airfields; military sites; power stations and heritage properties. They can safely mow slopes up to 40deg independently, or up to 55deg using the integrated hydraulic winch – gradients which would normally be considered to be outside safe limits.
The operator controls the Spider from up to 100 metres away, remaining out of harm’s way and risk of injury. The low weight of the unit also prevents damage to turf and eliminates soil erosion, while low fuel consumption means cost savings and reduced emissions.
Safe they certainly are, but that does not impede a Spider’s productivity. The largest model, the ILD02 can match 15 operatives with strimmers, and all machines feature a unique 4-wheel drive system enabling them to turn 360deg on their axis for quick manoeuvring. Even the slightly smaller ILD01 can mow up to 7,000m2 per hour, covering huge areas quickly and easily. You’ll certainly get huge value for money from a Spider.
