As the skillset of our turf managers continues to excel, it’s important that they are provided with the appropriate tools to capitalise on all of the other agronomic advances employed within our industry. The launch of the new fixed head INFINICUT® mower from Cub Cadet, at BTME 2019, is designed to do just that. Following on from the hugely successful FL floating head mower, the INFINICUT® FX incorporates many of the key tried and tested features in a simpler, more affordable package.
Available in 22”, 26”, 30” and 34” cutting widths, industry-leading cut quality remains at the heart of the new FX design philosophy. Key attributes such as lightweight design, Lithium battery power and quiet operation come as standard, while transport wheel and other bespoke options are available. The cassettes are ‘bottom mounted’, bolted in place, which reduces the risk of the unit oscillating when in use. The FX also offers the ability to parallel the whole machine on the rear traction roller which keeps the machine cutting well and true.
As with the INFINICUT® FL, the new fixed head machine can utilise the interchangeable ATT TMSystem™ cassettes. In addition to the accuracy and cleanliness of cut achieved with the SMARTCut™ cassette, the operator can easily switch this out for another cassette from the range to aerate, brush, de-thatch, scarify, top-dress, groom, level or mow, all with a single machine.
Commenting on its launch, Sales Manager Vinny Tarbox said, “Much of the design of the new INFINICUT® FX has been motivated by the requirements of our industry professionals, to provide them with the mechanical maintenance tools and techniques that can assist in the creation of a strong, healthy plant. With the continued non-renewal of plant protection products around Europe, this has never been more important. The new Fixed HeadTM package will help a broader market base to benefit from the numerous advantages of Cub Cadet’s unique cutting-edge mowing technology.”
