Innovation promised on TH White stand at Saltex

Published:  20 October, 2016

There will be several innovative new products on the TH White Machinery Imports stand at Saltex 2016.

Among them will be a working demonstration of Ferris's patented IS Independent suspension system on the Ferris 2100Z mower. This unique feature allows operators to maintain speed and productivity in rough terrain while riding in comfort and it sets Ferris apart from their competitors.

They will also be displaying Ferris’s first stander model to be brought to the market – the Soft Ride Stand-on SRSZ2. This features a patent-pending adjustable operator platform which aims to optimise operator comfort and increase productivity by improving balance, stability and manoeuvrability.

It is available in 36" and 48" cutting decks with rear discharge mowing deck, automatic PTO disengagement, ergonomic controls, height-of-cut hand-operated adjuster, a 23 litre fuel tank and an easy-locking, three-position speed control.

This model achieves 12.8km/h and mows up to 1.25 hectares per hour with the 48" deck operated at just 80% efficiency.

TH White Machinery Imports will also be showing off the new Stander ‘I’ from Wright Manufacturing. This mower, with its rapid height adjustment, enables you to change deck heights without breaking a sweat. Both the new Stander ‘I’ and Sport ‘I’ boast the all new “Aero-core” fully floating rear discharge deck. The new models are both available in 36” and 48” cutting widths.

And the Stander 32” will be on display too. This is the only stand-on 32” mower currently available in the UK and its size and manoeuvrability allows it to fit comfortably through a standard gateway.

Finally, the Ferris Fleetline F16OZ 52” with collection system, and the Ferris IS600Z – an entry level, full-suspension ZTR with a 44” rear discharge / mulching deck, will be on the stand too.

TH White Machinery Imports will be on Stand A040 at Saltex which runs at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham on the 2 and 3 November.
