Things are looking up in County Down for contractor Robert Harrison after he switched to a Twose reach arm – choosing the new TW67T-5 for the upcoming season.

Based in Greyabbey, Robert covers around 2,500 hours a year cutting hedgerows – working primarily for local farmers and building companies around the county.

Robert wanted a combination of reach and cutting power, as well as precise controls and exceptional build quality so he purchased Twose’s flagship TW67T – 5 from local dealer McCord Machinery of Cookstown, specifying it with a 1.5m HD flailhead with competition flails.

Designed for busy professional contractors, the TW67T-5 features 6.7m reach, 65hp high-performance hydraulics, and a Telescopic arm extension to enhance manoeuvrability and cutting flexibility.

Robert gave his verdict on the machine saying: “It’s a strongly-built machine and the performance is excellent. It delivers a powerful cut and a great finish. “

One of the key innovations available on 5 Series machines is the new Electric Proportional Joystick – which offers precise proportional control; innovative touch-pad controls and a twist grip for enhanced functionality; and an ergonomic design.

Robert said the new system is already proving invaluable:

“The joystick controls are ideal for working long hours when hedge-cutting because they are comfortable and easy to master. The stick is well-designed and grips comfortably in the hand so it feels very intuitive to control.”

Precision engineered in the UK, Twose machines are designed and create to meet the UK's ISO9001 hallmark of quality.

It's this robust build quality and strong performance in the field that has set the TW67T – 5 apart from the competition.

Robert said: “The machine has been excellent so far. I love the 6.7m reach and the telescopic arm extension – It’s been very reliable and I have yet to find anything I don’t like about it.

“I have had no problems in the first 500 hours and would definitely recommend it to others.”

“I also know I can count on McCord Machinery for brilliant after-sales support. They give you peace of mind.”
