The vigorous growth of hedgerows this year will mean it’s important to get under way with the hedgecutting season in September. 

To help you get the job done in the tidiest, most efficient way, McConnel has added two new 60hp Power Arms models to its popular 55-Series hedgecutter range – both in stock at T H WHITE. 

The new PA5555-60  and PA5755-60 models come with reach of 5.5m and 5.7m respectively – a useful increase of 0.4m and 0.3m compared to the standard PA5155 and PA5455 models. They also benefit from an additional five horsepower increase to a 60hp hydraulic system.  As well as the boost in reach and hydraulic horsepower, the three-point linkage mounted power arms gain an integrated oil cooler for increased longevity, redesigned rear guards to facilitate easier service access and high-visibility LED road lighting.  

McConnel’s signature features –parallel-arm and Hy-Reach geometry  – are a standard part of the design, as are seam welded c-section arms and fully bushed pivot points to reduce stress and ensure greater durability. 

Hydraulic Power Slew is another standard feature which enables safe, compact transport, also providing operators with the flexibility to cut precisely in tight corners. 

Both the new PA5555-60 and PA5755-60 are available with either cable controls or Motion Control – McConnel’s popular electronic proportion control system. 

Cutting attachments include a selection of flailheads from 1.2m to 1.5m, rotary heads, cutterbars and sawheads. A heavy-duty ditch and grip cleaner can also be specified.

The new models are available now with prices starting from £15,500+VAT from any T H WHITE Agricultural branch.
