iCut4’s sure footedness on slopes up to 60 degrees is ensured by its extra weight and expandable tracks (1.32m down to 1.02m). For restricted sites access is assisted by a tilting/locking flail head.
Ferri see their new model as the most powerful, remote control slope mower in its category, providing top performance in the most challenging ground conditions. It’s ideal for embankments, riverbanks, parks, wind farms and sport facilities. Optional extras include heavy duty hammers for gorse and heavy shrub clearance.
The company looked at 3 cylinder alternatives and re-designed the concept from the ground up, subsequently launching the 4 cylinder 50 Hp diesel engine iCut4 as the next generation of these highly versatile machines.
Those seeing the iCut4 in action are universally impressed with its unique hydraulic floating flail head system which allows the operator to follow the contour of the terrain, avoiding the common risk of the flail head getting stuck on the ground.
Operators also appreciate the new model’s direction track control achieved by the use of 2 joysticks combined with a flow sharing distributor which controls the hydraulic flow to the individual tracks. This ensures consistently smooth and easy directional control without constant correction. The intuitive control box has an effective range of 150 yards.
At the end of the day it is overall performance that will ensure the market’s take up of the iCut4 and this starts with its 4 cylinder engine providing added power to tackle slopes and difficult terrain with a surprising low level of noise. It is also securely mounted to minimise vibration. A large area radiator keeps iCut4 cool in challenging conditions. Access to the engine and all pipe work is very good thanks to two wide opening covers.
