Spearhead designs to make life easier with new TWIGA

Bruce Lett

The new Spearhead TWIGA range of extra heavy-duty hedgecutters has just been launched in Ireland. Ranging from 5m up to 8m in reach, the Twiga features include a stronger tank and frame, hoses routed inside the arms, newly designed 50mm greasable pivot pins and 150mm front offset on the second arm.

"The Twiga 650T is a high-spec model we are targeting at the professional contractor who needs a machine to do any job and work well day in, day out," says Val McAuley of distributors Farmhand.

The Twiga 650T is also equipped with Spearhead's new MP2 flail head. "The new flail head has longer, heavier flails that will give a better finish in just one pass. It also has stronger lugs, improved roller, thicker rotor and stronger frame with slide mount; all features that our large-scale contractor users want," said Antony Prince, export manager of Spearhead Britain.

The MP2 head is being supplied as standard on all Spearhead hedgecutters this autumn by Farmhand except for the Excel 470.

The Twiga 650T with HPC joystick controls is listing at €29,900 + VAT.
