Innovation has been at the very heart of the company since it was founded by Bob Sievwright in 1981. He was looking for a way to share his revolutionary Gamma Flail design, the first high-efficiency flail available on the market. Trimax was formed from an amalgamation of local flail mower manufacturers and, with the implementation of the Gamma Flail, quickly became a mowing solutions leader in the burgeoning kiwifruit industry in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty.
In 1983 Trimax joined forces with Procut Engineering, founded by Jim McEwen, to market their low-profile rotary mowers and in 1985 purchased the company to round out the Trimax product line. With both flail and rotary mowers in their range, Trimax was ready to grow and expand into new markets.
Today Trimax operates facilities and teams in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Our flail and rotary mowers can be found maintaining turf to a high standard around the world.

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!”
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.

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
QuikLIFT – to traverse paths or for tight turns, all three decks can be raised slightly with the PTO still
IndividualLIFT – for mowing around trees and other obstacles, either of the side decks can be lifted
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!

A raised front roller provides anti-scalp protection for your turf while improving long grass ingress and allowing for an easier hookup to your tractor.
LONG GRASS PERFORMANCE
New side channel and front roller designs improve long grass ingress, and lowered front flaps stand long grass up for a clean cut.
All moving surfaces have long life synthetic bushes, or greasable bearings and remote grease points for hassle-free maintenance.
Trimax turf tyres help distribute the weight of the mower for less ground disturbance.
Contour-following is compromised when decks are over 10′ wide. The X-WAM features multiple smaller decks for superior cut quality.
FULL HYDRAULIC OPERATION
The X-WAM uses full hydraulic operation for deck retraction into road transport mode.
WEAR RESISTANT SKIDS
Trailing skids made from abrasion-resistant steel extends bearing life and enables productivity in challenging environments.
FRONT CASTOR WHEELS
Front semi-pneumatic castor wheels allow the FlailDek FX to follow ground contours independently from the tractor.
SAFE CLIPPING DISPERSION
Safety is paramount when mowing in public areas. The FlailDek FX expels debris in a downward direction behind the mower.
SNAKE MULCH KIT
Save on purchasing dedicated leaf blowing and collection units with the Snake Mulch Kit. Retrofittable to existing Snake S1 & S2 models.
WHEELS RUN ON CUT GRASS
The rear deck is located between the transport wheels so grass is not flattened prior to mowing.
Equipped with a roadworthy chassis and capable of being towed at highway speeds.
The Pegasus is fitted with a Duratorque Suspension System capable of highway speeds.
SteadFast Sealed Spindles have eliminated the tedious task of regular greasing. Snake now also features maintenance free pivot bushes.
RAPIDSET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Clearly displayed cut height indicators allow for simple and easy alteration or resetting of cut heights. You can adjust heights without having to raise and lower the wings.
HIGH SPINDLE SPEEDS
The Trimax Topper has more spindles than comparison shaft driven toppers. These also spin at higher spindle speeds with shorter blade beams. This results in significantly more cuts per forward meter of travel and a much finer clip.
LOCTEK ROLLER BEARING RETENTION SYSTEM
A patent pending stubless roller bearing system for vastly improved retention, bearing life and replacement ease.
Skids on Warlord trailing arms prolong mower life in demanding terrain. The skids can be moved and replaced when required.
ANTI BLOCK SYSTEM
Topper spindles are fitted with a unique anti-block mechanism which deters long grass from catching and binding around the spindle restricting movement.
IMPROVES FEED QUALITY
Topping can be used to control poor quality pasture components such as removal of seed-heads and thistles and prevent their reoccurance.
Topper is short front to rear and mounts close to the tractor; allowing the use of smaller tractors. The high underbody clearance and open deck design allows for good flow of grass into the mowing deck and a clean ejection of cut grass.
With only 4 carefully positioned grease points and robust spindles with sealed ball bearings, the Trimax Striker has incredibly low maintenance requirements.
SAFE IN PUBLIC SPACES
Striker exceeds international safety standards and is backed up by our meticulous testing and support network. Striker is a mower that can be used with confidence even when mowing in confined areas.
Striker incorporates decades of experience with multi-spindled rotary roller mowers. Lighter than other Trimax mowers, it retains the attention to detail that minimises downtime and makes servicing easy. The cutting system, body integrity and sealed ball bearing spindles have been proven with extensive and rigorous testing.
We’ve eliminated the need to grease the pivot points and our updated spindle technology requires less maintenance and offers greater simplicity. You can spend more time mowing and less time maintaining!
EASY TO CLEAN
The improved belt chamber design includes front openings, allowing grass to be easily washed or blown out.
ACCURATE SPINDLE SETTING TECHNOLOGY
Trimax’s unique and protected spindle technology ensures spindle height is perfectly aligned across the length of each deck, providing the most accurate and consistent cut in the market.
To ensure optimum efficiency we’ve reduced the number of grease points by 15%, giving you 35% less maintenance costs than the Trimax Pegasus S3.
3 YEAR WARRANTY
We build mowers that last and they’re supported with a 3 year industry leading warranty. Our robust design, coupled with our experienced service and support network, ensures minimum downtime and maximum productivity.
SAFE CLIPPING DISPERSION
Safety is paramount when mowing in public areas. This is why Trimax has designed the Ezeemow FX to expel debris in a downward direction behind the mower.
Somewhat of an operators dream, these spindles offer extremely low maintenance and remove the regular task of regular greasing. As such, costs are reduced and productivity is enhanced.
Coarseness of mulch is controlled by the height of the rear flap. The finest mulch is produced with the flap in the lowest position, this low dispersion also improves safety in public spaces. Lifting the flap fully open whilst servicing provides uninhibited access to flails and rotor.
HYDRAULIC SIDE SHIFT
The Warlord S3 can be positioned directly behind the tractor or quickly offset by up to 19″. This feature assists with transport and manoeuvring around obstacles.
Helps direct prunings and other foliage into the front aperture of the mower, which would otherwise be too high or wide. It also helps keep debris away from the hydraulic system for protection in challenging environments.
A 1/4″ replaceable internal liner reduces noise and minimizes outer body damage prolonging mower life.
MOST VERSATILE STEALTH
The improved cutting chamber and baffle design directs airflow from the blades out and over the rear roller. This improves cut quality and spread in both long and short grass.
QUICKLIFT TEMPORARY DECK LIFT
Enables all three mower decks to be raised without disengaging the PTO to traverse driveways, footpaths and pavements.
AUTOMATIC BELT TENSIONERS
Eliminate the need for belt adjustments and improve drive to the spindles and blades.
Allows continuous cutting while turning sharply for maximum productivity.
With three articulating decks the Snake has the ability to follow contours with minimal scalping.
EASY HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT

FULL WIDTH ROLLERS
A large diameter rear roller on the ProCut follows the contours and supports the mower across its entire width, providing excellent anti-scalp protection.
STAND ON COVERS
Provides safe and easy access to the rear of the tractor when coupling the mower.
BELT CAVITY DUAL WASH FLAPS
Provides easy access for removal of grass and drainage of water from belt cavity.
FULL WIDTH ROLLERS
Full width rollers on all decks follow the contours of the ground and provide excellent anti-scalp protection. Rollers also allow mowing along the edge of banks or paths, and produces a superb striping effect for those wishing to pattern their turf. Safety is enhanced as rollers contain debris in the cutting chamber.
RAPIDSET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Clearly displayed cut height indicators allow for simple and easy alteration or resetting of cut heights.
With their unique ’tilt forward’ design, carefully engineered centre of gravity and optimised blade thickness, LazerBladez achieve a superior cut and finish. They’re also cost efficient compared to reels or solid blade beams as only the fling-tip requires replacement.
Full width rear roller prevents scalping, permits the edge of the mower to be run along kerbs, adds to overall safety and produces striping.
NEW IMPROVED ROTOR
Designed to withstand the toughest environments our new rotor is more durable ensuring downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
When in a downward position the converter creates suction, which lifts grass for a superb cut. For work in heavy grass, lift converter for increased grass intake.
