Grillo's are a ride on made for steep slopes,think go cart with a mower blade. There's also an American company that makes huge ride ons for slopes at dam sites & other slopes. You might want to lie down before i give you the price (does this site have the spoiler option,it hides a comment  & you have to clik it to gt it to show the answer) dammed if i know where it is so brace yourself *drum roll*  forty thou

Grillo.s were only available as a 2wd up until fairly recent, but now they have a couple of 4wd,s. Japanese versions have been around for awhile too, Razorback (sold by the guys who sell Walker mowers) Orec and others.

 

Masport do a 2 and 4wd version.

Germans do a great one, judging by the reviews possibly the best one. Think Colsy hired one at some stage

 

 



For those who think you can take a zero turn up and down the same slopes and slash the same height overgrowth i ask what would you like on your tombstone?  :)

A new battery powered Stihl Combi Tool is available OS.

It will probably be a while before it is available here.

Not really new but B+S to distribute Shindaiwa and ECHO branded products. Will you be able to buy them at your local VICTA store (Bunning) ?

Cox and Greenfield have hooked up together too.

 

Interesting times.

I met the owner of Greenfield Products at a funeral recently. We sent to school together. I asked him why there was an answering machine on the main phoneline for them. And he told me the same. He's effectively retired now and sold the licence to manufacture to Cox. Said they couldn't make a buck against the imports. Don't know whether there will still be a Greenfield brand.

B&S here got swallowed up by steelfort (they make lawnmaster) who also ate rover as well a number of years ago. I'm not sure why rover was taken over by them as rover use to be run by Carl Williams (CEO/Manager of rover nz) in East Tamaki which isn't far from where i live. The real pea off is rover here use to do deutscher mowers & parts. Now deutscher is done by a company in Christchurch & butt rapes every time you want parts i.e 100% mark up & possibly more. My backside is still recovering when i bought a 22" cutting deck last year, i needed quite a few st i tches. Serves me right for not taking up the salesman offer of getting a price first. To give you an idea of how bad it was. A 42" cutting deck that's around 2-3mm thick is 550 nz for my mtd. The 22" cutting deck that's 2mm has no strengthening at the base around the skirt cost me $900 nz. To rub salt into the wound the toe rags got the dam thing sent to them so not only did i pay for freight from Oz i then paid the same dam amount $40 to get it to me in South Auckland even tho the deck was prepaid. Won't be dealing with them again. Instead will contact a younger brother over there in future. I'm still pretty pead off by it
