Major Swift Roller Mower: One mower for all

We have 1600 acres of grass which we’ve got to maintain along with other open spaces and parkland, floral decks, trees, etc. We’re looking for versatility within a mower these days. The Major Swift has a direct drive with gearboxes on each blade which copes with the short grass and keeps the fine turf going. But it also has the capability of going into a lot longer grass as well. We are able to do that with one mower instead of buying a whole fleet of them, reducing our purchasing costs. We started off with a 12000 Major mower and now have four Major mowers. I have not known a dealer, or a company like Major, to help us, to look after us, and treat us like the way they do.
