Auto Belt Tensioners Reduce Snake Maintenance

Auto Belt Tensioners Reduce Snake Maintenance

Trimax Mowing Systems have introduced an auto belt tensioning system for the Snake rotary mower, designed to improve performance and cut downtime.

The system ensures that the correct belt tension is always applied during operation thus improving drive to the spindles.

Now there is no risk of fitting the belts in the incorrect configuration due to the design of the idler arm, and no need to keep checking that belts are tensioned correctly.

Customers are assured this new development will boost productivity and ensure a top-quality cut for which the Snake has become renowned.

Not only is this new system fitted to all new Snake models, it is also available as a retrofittable kit allowing existing customers to reap the same benefits. Only basic hand tools and a power drill are all that is required to perform this upgrade

Caroline Shaw, European Marketing Manager at Trimax commented: “We’re very excited to launch this new system for the Snake. It is a popular machine which is transforming green areas around the world. As with all new innovations, the auto belt tension system underwent rigorous testing – 100,000,000 cycles to be precise!”

Trimax Steadfast Spindles Require No Regular Maintenance

Trimax Steadfast Spindles Require No Regular Maintenance

As part of an ongoing development programme, Trimax Mowing Systems have developed a new version of the blade spindle assembly. The new spindle features a sealed bearing system that requires no regular maintenance.

The spindles have been tested in both the laboratory and on selected machines running in rigorous operating conditions. Trimax are confident the new spindles will continue to deliver the outstanding reliability for which the original spindles are renowned, with the added benefit of reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

For existing customers who are currently using the greased spindles, no worries, these new spindles are retrofittable! Simply replace the current spindle with the new SteadFAST Sealed one and remove the grease line to ensure grease is not accidently pumped into the spindle going forward. Easy peasy.

Trimax unveils the ultimate safety system on Pegasus Series 4

Trimax unveils the ultimate safety system on Pegasus Series 4

The Pegasus Series

The Series 4 is the latest Pegasus model. Launched in 2019, it is the lowest maintenance version of this
trailed mower. It’s also an extremely efficient machine with its wide cutting widths (4.9m & 6m) and
mowing speeds of up to 10mph on flat terrain.

 

Drive Protect – Trimax’s All New Safety System

As if the Series 4 launch wasn’t enough, Trimax has now engineered a revolutionary new lift system, setting
new standards of safety and functionality.

In the 1980s, when Trimax was formed, they pledged to provide the ultimate mowing machinery with
unsurpassed safety and efficiency. In keeping with this pledge, the company has adopted stricter standards
for its latest innovations.

ISO 5395-3 clause 4.10.1 was developed for ride-on mowers and specifies that mowing decks cannot be
lifted above 400mm from the ground without the blades being disengaged – ensuring ultimate protection
for operators and the general public.

Trimax’s new Drive Protect safety system is standard on all Pegasus S4 lift options. Fully electronic, it
features built-in sensors to prevent the mowing decks from lifting in unsafe conditions or until the blades
have ceased spinning.

The sensors also prevent the decks from lifting if the PTO is still engaged. This prevents damage to the
machine, prolongs overall life span and significantly reduces downtime.

All sensors, connectors and valves on the lift mechanism are waterproof and fully compliant with IP67,
giving customers peace of mind in all conditions.

 

Lift Options Add Versatility

Trimax machines are designed to be versatile and the Pegasus Series 4 is no exception – it offers three
different lift options to ensure maximum functionality at all times. This includes the all new MultiLIFT
system:

  • QuikLIFT – to traverse paths or for tight turns, all three decks can be raised slightly with the PTO still
    engaged.
  • IndividualLIFT – for mowing around trees and other obstacles, either of the side decks can be lifted
    independently.
  • MultiLIFT – a combination of QuikLIFT and IndividualLIFT with the addition of BiLIFT. This facilitates
    rear deck mowing only, ideal for narrow gateways and driveways.

 

Safe and Easy Operation

All three lift functions come with Drive Protect and can be operated from inside the operator’s cab using
an LED cab controller. It’s simple to use and allows for easy troubleshooting.

 

Your Search is Over

If you are looking for the ultimate wide-area mower which offers industry leading safety, efficiency and
convenience, the Trimax Pegasus Series 4 is it!

Does a higher tip speed always equal a better cut?

Does a higher tip speed always equal a better cut?

Everybody quotes blade tip speed, this is not nearly as important as spindle speed.

Blade tip speed is similar across all brands, and some brands are running tip speeds higher than required as the cleanest cut possible is only achievable within a certain speed range. Too fast and power and fuel are wasted, too slow and the grass is torn and damaged. What really matters is how many cuts or rotations the blade achieves per forward meter of travel, which is where spindle speed comes in.

Spindle speed informationFaster spindle speeds

 

Trimax mowers feature shorter blade beams that enable more spindles to be fitted across the decks for any given cutting width. This keeps the deck compact for better weight distribution and maneuverability.

To maintain the perfect tip speed for cleanly cut grass, these shorter blade beams spin at a higher rate allowing the blade to take a smaller bite (clip) of grass each rotation, ultimately increasing the number of cuts per forward meter. This increased number of cuts is essential for producing a finer cut.

The other benefit is each spindle only has to handle a small volume of grass. This allows for the most effective use of the specialised Trimax airflow design in mixing the cut grass with air for an even spread which is discharged safely and effectively over the rear roller with no windows.

To gain an even greater number of cuts per meter, Trimax offers the patented Quattro Blade Kit on selected models increasing the blades per spindle from two to four, thereby doubling the number of cuts per rotation.

As an option, Quattro can be retrofitted for when an even finer clip of grass is needed. For all fine cut and turf applications, we recommend Quattro blade carriers and your choice of blade combinations including flat and uplift options.
