Successful Close to Cyclone UK Roadshow

The MAJOR Cyclone Roadshow completed this week with enthusiastic response across the UK.

 

The roadshow was held over four days in Haltwhistle, Carlisle, Selattyn, and Bury St. Edmunds together with participating dealers Lloyd, Carrs Billington, Hughes Bros, and Thurlow Nunn Standen (TNS) over the last week of April. The event focused on giving participants a closer look at the superior cut of the Cyclone range of mowers in the most rugged working environments at a fraction of the fuel and power consumption. Its patented ‘blender’ double-chop blade system requires 25% less HP than a flail mower, slashing at least 25% off upfront fuel costs.

 

The MAJOR Cyclone rotary mower in 4.2m winged and 2.8m rigid deck models were used on a variety of conditions including normal pasture topping, clearing rushes, slashing hardy moorland grass, and tidying the grounds of a point-to-point racecourse. Participants were shown how the swinging blades on each rotor pulverises the material fine enough so nutrients return to the soil, encouraging better grass growth in subsequent periods.

 

MAJOR product specialists James Cox and Keith McCormick were on site to advise and explain the easy operability and low maintenance benefits of the mowers. The gearbox driveline has less wearing parts than a flail, reducing overall maintenance costs over the life of the machine. Made with high-performance Strenx™ 700 MC steel and hot-dipped galvanised to EN ISO standards, the Cyclone is guaranteed impact tough.

 

“We want to demonstrate the versatility and ruggedness of the Cyclone mower and we’ve succeeded in showing what these mowers can do for farmers and contractors across the British countryside this week,” says Keith McCormick, MAJOR machinery sales rep for Scotland, North England and Northern Ireland.  “Turnout has been overwhelming, which just shows the strong interest for a better alternative to a flail.

 

James Cox, MAJOR machinery sales rep for Wales, South UK and UK Midlands echoes the sentiment. “These demonstrations allow us to understand the challenges and issues farmers face and how our machinery can fix them or improve operations. We’ve had excellent feedback from everyone and the participating dealers have been especially enthusiastic. They look forward to making this an annual event.”

 

Major Equipment regularly holds demo days all over the UK and Europe tailored to conditions commonly faced by businesses and operators in the locality.  Take a look the MAJOR Facebook page for an up to date listing of upcoming shows and events!
