ALL-ELECTRIC agria 9700e power unit coming soon to Wiedenmann UK dealers
Andy Kerr, lead demonstrator for Agria UK and Wiedenmann UK, has welcomed its arrival and suggests this new technology is what many Councils and contractors need to meet their net zero goals
“The great thing about this new machine is that its carbon neutral and 100% electric. Imagine something with as much power as a 30 hp tractor, working essentially as a base unit. Next, attach a mowing deck, or a flail decks or other accessories, using a CAT 1 standard 3-point linkage, and there you have it…
"Everyone is increasingly focussed on lowering their emissions. This answers many questions.
"The existing agria 9500 and 9600 machines sold via Wiedenmann UK dealers, are specific rotary mowers, positioned underneath a hybrid power unit. With this, the 9700e moves technology forward. It creates a host of exciting new opportunities.
“While it can climb inclines of 50 degrees it is also amazing on the level,” continued Andy Kerr. “If you have implements weighing less than 300 kg then the 9700e should be able to take them PTO driven. You can have it pull a surface conditioner then with the flick of a switch it can push a front mounted brush, so bi-directional with fully adjustable speed. It’s pretty special and lots of people want to see it. We’ll be taking it across the UK & Ireland as soon as we can.”
