Testimonials


We run a flock of 500 sheep alongside a medium sized beef enterprise on the Isle of Arann in Scotland. Rushes are our biggest challenge so we were in the market for a flail mower but our dealer, Hamilton Brothers, suggested we try a Major Cyclone Mower. The mower was brought over on demonstration and once we saw it working we asked Hamilton Brothers to leave it with us. A flail mower in an equivalent working width would require far more power than we're putting into the Cyclone so there is a fair fuel saving there. It's just a very strong, reliable and cost effective mower. If we had bought a flail mower and seen this after we'd have been annoyed!

David Henderson, Isle of Arann, Scotland

Our Cyclone has been a great purchase because I can use it for mulching shrub as well as topping and general grassland maintenance and we can use a much smaller tractor now.
