4WD ride-on brushcutter

Recommended Posts

I had a demonstration in my woodland yesterday of a Canycom 4WD ride-on brushcutter. Amazingly competent, easy to use, and beautifully engineered bit of kit. Japanese made, shaft drive to both axles and the cutter, 18 horsepower V twin Subaru engine, blade change is tool-less.

It safely coped with steep (25 degree slopes) and blitzed through thick dense brambles. Highly impressive.

Imported to the UK by Ian Stanbridge at ICB Plant Ltd.

£10k for one of them. Could probably haggle a bit with the importer / dealer. A lot of cash but given its ability, ease of use, and engineering I'd say it is good value. I am told that it will put a blooming good finish on lawns too.

My problem is that I would only use it in my woodland seven or eight days a year. If I could find a few folk locally who could also use it, I would indulge.

Have a look at the etisia model looks just like that built to last best atv mower I've used when they were first bought out they demoed them clearing bamboo in Japan made it look easy. You can pick good second hand one up with around 800 hours on for £3/3500 quite easily.

There's also the sherpa as940 for around 10k or 15 with a remote. It's amazing what it will go through and they're well built.

I demoed the grillo climber, they are good also but struggled to justify buying it

 

Good little cutter bought one that was x EA right at the start of an auction got it for £750 plus vat commission.

It's had been filled with deisal but not run £50 and it was running boy didn't it get some abuse great machine and very similar to the Etisia in design.
