New roller mower needed

Recommended Posts

this mountfield did peak my interest with the cone clutch.

 

 

 

The Mountfield SP555R V twin clip is the roller version of the new 555 twin clip. This mower also shares the same chassis and drive as the New Stiga Twinclip 4 wheeler which in turn replace your existing 21" Stiga 4 wheeled mower, Mike.

 

I am sure your existing Stiga which is now a couple of years old has been fine, and the new replacement will hopefully be better still with this new gearbox which is able to handle nearly twice the torque of your existing machine. All the Twinclips, Stiga or Mountfield, share this box.

 

The rear roller is similar in diameter and style to the Hayter, but without the split, which is not necessary anyway and just a source of trouble.

Ah I see. However that mower is still going fine with no fautls at all and am looking at a new roller.

 

My name isn't Mike though. Not sure where that came from? I know ploggs called me mike/gus at various points for whatever reason, but neither of those are correct.

 

Thank you though. And if I do need a new 4 wheeler in the future it will almost certainly be another Stiga:thumbup1:

Whoops, sorry about the name!!!

Thats the trouble with Forums, bloody impersonal things.

Mind you, i am always mixing up customers names face to face in the shop too.

 

Glad you like your Stiga though. Mountfield and Stiga are now pretty much the same, with Mountfield having a wider range of slightly cheaper specs, whilst you can "step up to Stiga" for a reduced range of higher spec machines.

Except the Rollers, which are only done in Mountfield.

Not a problem Barry. I'm used to people pronouncing my name wrong anyway.

 

It's Seth although often clients with bad hearing or a bad case of ignorance call me seb/steve/steph or even shane.

Went and had a look at the Weibang pro today. Impressive mower, lots of nice features but sadly doesn't have a blade break. Really well built and has a Kawasaki engine. Only real down side I could see was it weighs 70kg.

Does anyone have any experience of the John Deere mowers, I'm sure they're probably re branded from another make but I've got a dealer fairly near to me.

I had a John deere for a while. It was the 21 inch roller R534KB somthing like that. It had the kawasiki engine I forgot to mention this one. I cant think of one good point. It was long & heavy. Throttle cable kept faling outa of location? Vario drive was awful full power it was to fast & low power you had to push it. Blade was very heavy motor was no more powerfull than hayter 56. I did not keep it long as I hit a scalfold clamp on customers lawn this bent the crank shaft & game over. I cant be sure as could not conduct a fair test but I would guess hayter or honda would survive such a event. I would not be looking for another Johny Queer!

I can't really see the point in buying a chinese Weibang when you can have a time proven Kaaz (with blade brake) for the same price. There really is not a better mower on the market than the Kaaz ( or badged derivatives)

 

The JD? I love the JD mowers and have sold plenty. Really good mowers but sadly the 52cm roller mowers that I have sold to commercial users have proved to be a bit expensive to run with rollers, gearboxes and belts. Even changing the drive belt takes a good bloke well over half an hour to do. The domestic owners have been well chuffed, but commercial users would not have another. And yet again, they are more expensive than the Kaaz and not as good, so why bother?

And, for information the JD is not rebadged. Its the original German Sabo mower and JD have owned Sabo for many years.

Sorry for the de-rail but any idea of the speed of the Stiga Twinclip 55 SV H. Ran pro 55 for years but gearboxes were weak, loved the low vibes thou.

Stiga are not publishing the forward speeds yet for some reason, probably an oversight.

But it is fitted with a varistor, so will be quite fast enough in the fast position.

 

Fitted with the low vibe engine mounts too, so will be a joy to use.
