LAMMA 17: Keep your cool

As well as its striking Twose-derived front-press, McConnel had a new range of hedge-trimmers on display at LAMMA.

Set to replace the old 1000-series, this new ‘contractor-spec’ bracket-mounted line-up spans reaches from 6.4m to 8.0m with different jib options including variable forward reach and telescopic booms.

One of the biggest changes is the addition of a hollow tube running through the centre of the oil tank. Air drawn through the oil cooler is blown out through the cavity aiding cooling. The tube is also said to act as a baffle, helping to dissipate the bubbles that form as oil returns to the tank. Pricing for the new trimmers will be on a par with the outgoing machines and standard spec includes LED strobe lighting, toolbox, belly-plate and cab stop-guard.
