Eagle Wing Grass Topper

The MAJOR 490EW grass topper is the machine of choice for grassland and setaside areas and for military authorities for cutting training areas and bases.
It is also suitable for use by airports for inner runway maintenance and at racecourses and stud farms for pasture improvements.

Practical, simple engineering are the key elements in the design of this robust and flexible mower. The blade lift and aerofoil combination disperses cut grass evenly.

  • Four gear box drive, with independent slip clutch and two year warranty
  • Wide angle shaft (80°) constant velocity
  • U-joint for continuous cutting
  • Road lighting kit with flashing beacon
  • 24 ply virtually puncture proof aircraft tyres
  • Floating front swivel hitch and frame allows the machine to follow the grounds contours
  • 153 mm (6”) blade overlap and high blade tip speeds ensure clean cutting

Testimonials


We have a long grass policy where we let the grass grow to 8” and then cut it back to 6”. This is to stop the birds nesting. We think that the 490EW is the best machine on the market. It does the job we need and is more robust than the other machines on the market
