Kirk Langley, Derbyshire, England: The Dennis Razor Ultra 560 incorporates many key features including an 11-bladed cutting cylinder, ultra-short wheelbase for undulating surfaces, tungsten tipped groomer, compact handle design for extra manoeuvrability, click height adjusters and stub free transport wheels for easy transport from site-to-site.
For increased durability the mower has high impact resistant acrylic guards. To offer extra user protection, the stub shafts have been designed within the side guards as the mower features a quick release powered transport wheel kit with kick stand.
As ever the operator is high on Dennis’s list of priorities, with easy adjustment of cut height using the ‘click adjust’ system, while the proven easy start Honda Q9 engine offers low noise, low vibration technology.
“The Razor Ultra 560 is an extremely versatile mower and will provide a top quality finish on a variety of surfaces and will be of particular interest to greenkeepers maintaining golf greens and tees to a high standard,” said a spokesperson for Dennis, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Michael Dickson, Deputy Head Greenkeeper and Mechanic from Mapperley Golf Club, said: “We had the Razor Ultra on demo and were instantly impressed. The members loved it and they could instantly tell which green it had been demonstrated on. Even when the treasurer came out, he saw the quality of cut and said: ‘Right, we’re having them now’.
“The other mowers we tried just felt very heavy and more difficult to manoeuvre in comparison to the Razor Ultra. It was the best option by far.”
The mower encompasses the simple ‘no tools required’ click height adjusters for quick and easy operation, a feature which particularly struck a chord with Dickson and his team.
Dickson said: “I like a mower that is simple, straightforward to use and does the job which it is supposed to do. We’ve been using the Razor Ultras for a year now and they have been fantastic.
“In my opinion the best features on the mower are that they are reliable, incredibly well built and easy to use. They keep the weight off the greens in winter and the cut that it offers in terms of presentation is fantastic. Since we’ve been using the Razor Ultra, the greens have been a different quality.”
Also available is the balanced, easy to manoeuvre Dennis Razor greens mower, similar to the Razor Ultra 560, but without the tungsten tipped groomer. An 11-bladed cutting cylinder ensures an ultra-fine finish and has an ultra-short wheelbase for undulating surfaces. The machine also encompasses the simple ‘no tools required’ click height adjustors and the low noise. This machine is also available with seven-bladed cutting cylinder.
