Published: 06 May, 2016
The Education Authority for Northern Ireland has taken delivery of a further seven Shibaura SG280 ride-on compact slope mowers.
Service manager Hugh Mc Callan said, “The SG 280s are the core of our maintenance fleet for both steep banking up to 30 degrees and a wide range of year-round tasks. They are used right across our area, maintaining education authority property and their performance, capability and safety is second to none.
“The 26-litre fuel tank gives us more efficient working and the fully adjustable horizontal rolling seat to compensate for working angle is a real hit with our operatives”
Paul Butterly, of FGM Claymore, the UK Distributor for the Shibaura range, said: “With low noise and vibration levels the SG280 is an operator-friendly machine. The 28HP three-cylinder diesel engine complies with current emission regulations and the solid 50-50 weight distribution, together with a 1500mm wheel base and low centre of gravity, delivers the stability and safety of operation required when at work on steep inclines.”
