We changed to the Major Green Bee six years ago.

Our company is one of the largest of its kind in the UK and our land management style and approach has won us many industry accolades for doing the job right. We generally cut the short grass areas on a once-a-week basis, but the rough areas may have a trim just a couple of times a year. We used to have a system which was labour and equipment intensive because it required two passes to cut and then collect clippings. We changed to a one-pass machine six years ago, the Major Green Bee, which is a ‘one-point-six-metre’ mounted flail mower with a collector box. It’s proven to be absolutely the right choice.
