Suitable for maintaining both cricket wickets and cricket squares, the ES-510 and ES-610 are ultra quiet, interchangeable cassette systems with operating widths of 20” and 24” and a cutting height of 3mm to 25mm. Both machines have a selection of cassettes that allows ground staff to carry out a multitude of tasks pre, during and post season.

Both mowers have 11 bladed cutting cylinders and a cutting height of 3mm to 25mm ensuring an ultra-fine finish. The ES-22 Ultra is complete with a tungsten tipped groomer to control lateral growth.
