Extended reach and control options are among the new features offered by the latest Twose hedge cutters.
Twose has extended its hedge cutter range, with a new telescopic model. Available now, the updated 11 model range now offers maximum reach from 3.2-6.75m.
In addition, the manufacturer has introduced a number model numbering system, with five different series; from the 1 Series, aimed at landscape and ground care machines; to the 5 Series ideally for contractors, large-scale farmers and council authorities. Telescopic and variable forward reach models are identified by the letters T and C respectively.
Along with new styling, 5 Series machines get LED lighting as standard and a built-in oil cooler with hydraulic reversing fan on 65hp models.
Fitted with 1m telescopic dipper arm extension, the new TW67T-5 is the largest machine in the range, with a 65hp hydraulic pump and 6.75m reach. A basic TW67T-5 with low pressure hydraulic controls costs £26,980.
Said to be a major enhancement, the new twistable electronic joystick, a £3,300 option on 4 and 5 Series machines, offers proportional control of lift, reach and head angle, while two buttons and a keypad look after all remaining functions.
Mounted on top of the joystick, the two buttons can be programmed to control arm slew, telescopic extension or forward reach – where fitted.
Along with the manufacturer’s new electronic controls, low pressure proportional hydraulic and cable controls are still available.
Models fitted with Twose’ electronic proportional joystick also benefit from arm float. Differing from head float, the system monitors the pressure of the head resting on the ground, and adjusts arm height to keep the pressure within pre-set levels, to better follow ground contours.
