New premium model of agria 9500 gains extra 10 cm & Kawasaki engine
The 70 cm wide standard version was introduced two years ago with a 16 hp Briggs & Stratton engine and has become a popular entry level machine for those maintaining and mulching slopes and gradients up to 45°.
Buyers can now choose a second model, the premium, which is 10 cm wider and powered by a Kawasaki 17.3 hp engine. The premium model can also work on slopes to 50°.
Andy Kerr, lead demonstrator for Agria UK and Wiedenmann UK, said:
“Both have a new-style control pad, so from a H&S perspective, the operator can take a safe position up to 100 metres away. Working remotely means even the minimal emissions of noise, vibration and fumes completely by-pass the operator. The control pad comes with a tilt sensor which switches the machine off in an emergency or shuts out if the operator falls.”
The premium, with its working width of 80 cm, brings access to even steeper slopes and a higher area performance of up to 3,000 m² per hour. It has optional uniquely shaped mulching blades as well as optional cleated crawler tracks for working on wet or loose ground.
“The 9500s are very neat, easily transportable and mow wild growth in their stride, taming visible areas which would be previously unreachable. They work equally well on the flat and wherever they go, leave an even finish. Brushless drive motors mean they are maintenance free; the net result is a more precise fluent feel. The benefits of a brushless generator and a self-tensioning blade drive belt with no grease points just makes it better and better,” said Andy.
