McConnel 55-Series gains increased horsepower and reach options

McConnel has added two new 60hp Power Arms models to its popular 55-Series hedgecutter range resulting in an exceptional combination of value, power and performance – making it ideal for farmers, contractors, and local government grass maintenance teams.

The new PA5555-60  and PA5755-60 comes with reach of 5.5m and 5.7m respectively and gain an  additional five horsepower increase over the standard PA5155 and PA5455 which have 5.1m and 5.4m cutting reach respectively and 55hp hydraulic system.

In addition to the step-up in reach and hydraulic horsepower, the three-point linkage mounted Power Arms also gains an integrated oil cooler for increased longevity, redesigned rear guards for easier service access and high visibility LED road lighting.

McConnel’s parallel-arm and Hy-reach geometry continue to come as standard, as do seam welded c-section arms and fully bushed pivot points to reduce stress and ensure greater durability. Hydraulic Power Slew is another standard feature and enabling safe, compact transport and provides 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 for order immediately with retail prices starting from £20,800 +VAT
