The rotary mower connects directly to a central collection hose, which itself is connected to the hopper. The hose is located under the machine to avoid increasing the overall width of the mower, while retaining the excellent manoeuvrability of the rotary mower.
The hopper is manufactured from moulded plastic, which is designed to withstand corrosive grass residue. It is compact yet has a large capacity of 750 l, which means less emptying. Also, the grass is cut twice in transit from mower to hopper, which means that it takes up very little space. When the hopper does need emptying, it is all done via a joystick from the comfort of the cab seat, so the operator does not even need to get off.
The time saved mowing grass and collecting it in one pass is clear. Also, the Egholm grass collector can tackle long grass, which means less cutting throughout the year. The grass collector cleans up after itself, leaving an attractive, clipping-free area - and without any leaves as these are removed along with the grass clippings. The grass collector may be installed with an external leaf collection hose (option) which makes it possible to remove leaves from hard-to-reach areas under hedges, between plants, etc
