Auto Belt Tensioners Reduce Snake Maintenance

Auto Belt Tensioners Reduce Snake Maintenance

Trimax Mowing Systems have introduced an auto belt tensioning system for the Snake rotary mower, designed to improve performance and cut downtime.

The system ensures that the correct belt tension is always applied during operation thus improving drive to the spindles.

Now there is no risk of fitting the belts in the incorrect configuration due to the design of the idler arm, and no need to keep checking that belts are tensioned correctly.

Customers are assured this new development will boost productivity and ensure a top-quality cut for which the Snake has become renowned.

Not only is this new system fitted to all new Snake models, it is also available as a retrofittable kit allowing existing customers to reap the same benefits. Only basic hand tools and a power drill are all that is required to perform this upgrade

Caroline Shaw, European Marketing Manager at Trimax commented: “We’re very excited to launch this new system for the Snake. It is a popular machine which is transforming green areas around the world. As with all new innovations, the auto belt tension system underwent rigorous testing – 100,000,000 cycles to be precise!”

Trimax Steadfast Spindles Require No Regular Maintenance

Trimax Steadfast Spindles Require No Regular Maintenance

As part of an ongoing development programme, Trimax Mowing Systems have developed a new version of the blade spindle assembly. The new spindle features a sealed bearing system that requires no regular maintenance.

The spindles have been tested in both the laboratory and on selected machines running in rigorous operating conditions. Trimax are confident the new spindles will continue to deliver the outstanding reliability for which the original spindles are renowned, with the added benefit of reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

For existing customers who are currently using the greased spindles, no worries, these new spindles are retrofittable! Simply replace the current spindle with the new SteadFAST Sealed one and remove the grease line to ensure grease is not accidently pumped into the spindle going forward. Easy peasy.

Does a higher tip speed always equal a better cut?

Does a higher tip speed always equal a better cut?

Everybody quotes blade tip speed, this is not nearly as important as spindle speed.

Blade tip speed is similar across all brands, and some brands are running tip speeds higher than required as the cleanest cut possible is only achievable within a certain speed range. Too fast and power and fuel are wasted, too slow and the grass is torn and damaged. What really matters is how many cuts or rotations the blade achieves per forward meter of travel, which is where spindle speed comes in.

Spindle speed informationFaster spindle speeds

 

Trimax mowers feature shorter blade beams that enable more spindles to be fitted across the decks for any given cutting width. This keeps the deck compact for better weight distribution and maneuverability.

To maintain the perfect tip speed for cleanly cut grass, these shorter blade beams spin at a higher rate allowing the blade to take a smaller bite (clip) of grass each rotation, ultimately increasing the number of cuts per forward meter. This increased number of cuts is essential for producing a finer cut.

The other benefit is each spindle only has to handle a small volume of grass. This allows for the most effective use of the specialised Trimax airflow design in mixing the cut grass with air for an even spread which is discharged safely and effectively over the rear roller with no windows.

To gain an even greater number of cuts per meter, Trimax offers the patented Quattro Blade Kit on selected models increasing the blades per spindle from two to four, thereby doubling the number of cuts per rotation.

As an option, Quattro can be retrofitted for when an even finer clip of grass is needed. For all fine cut and turf applications, we recommend Quattro blade carriers and your choice of blade combinations including flat and uplift options.
