New Trimax Brand Video
New Zealand-based Trimax Mowing Systems is marking its 40th anniversary of operation in 2021 with the release of a new brand video, sharing the story of the company’s past and looking into the future.
Trimax was founded in 1981 by Bob Sievwright, a New Zealand engineer and salesperson with family roots in agriculture and a passion for high-performance machinery. While working as a salesperson, Bob developed the Gamma Flail, an innovative aerodynamic mower flail which would simplify manufacturing processes and increase operational efficiency as compared to then-contemporary welded flails.
Bob gained his first customer after six weeks of development: Southern Engineering in Tauranga, New Zealand. Unfortunately, the arrangement only lasted a month before Southern Engineering burnt to the ground. In a bold effort to keep the Gamma Flail on the market, Bob bought out the remains of the business and made a deal with another local flail mower manufacturer, Gamman Engineering, combining them to form the beginning of Trimax Mowing Systems.
Bob’s determination to produce results that would lead to the success of his customers set the stage for Trimax’s success. Each problem was a potential opportunity approached with a curious and humble attitude, emphasizing the importance of fully understanding both the customer and the issue before working together toward a solution. “Investment in our customer relationships has supported the growth of our own business,” says Trimax CEO Michael Sievwright.
Today Trimax has manufacturing, assembly, and warehousing facilities in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Michael says, “Trimax has had to learn to adapt to each of our different markets. We learned that we needed to design products to suit market-specific needs and preferences, relying on our technical foundations and pillars of culture to guide our connections to our customers.” Trimax’s rotary and flail equipment is now a market-leading mowing solution around the world and can be found on such high-profile turf as England’s Silverstone Race Circuit and US PGA Championship courses.
Looking to the future, Trimax will continue to build on those foundations and pillars to advance into the digital age, making smarter and more responsive systems and investigating the opportunities offered by emerging technologies such as automation and electrification. “We’ve had 40 years of innovation which challenges the status quo. Thinking outside the box is something we’re good at because we’re driven to find better ways forward,” says Michael Sievwright.

LOW HP REQUIREMENTS
The open deck design for grass processing, efficient belt drive system and a short mower front-to-rear allows for use on lower HP tractors.
Trimax’s meticulous design process combined with bespoke, innovative manufacturing technologies produce the most accurate rotary cut in the market.
COMPACT TRACTOR SUITABLE
Able to be paired with tractors as low as 25 hp, perfect for smaller budgets and compact tractors.
Full width front and rear rollers produce beautiful striping.
Anti-wear skids reduce wear on side channels when operating in rough or uneven terrain.
WEAR RESISTANT SKIDS
Trailing skids made from abrasion-resistant steel extends bearing life and enables productivity in challenging environments.
The Remote Unlock option replaces the standard transport lock release rope with an electric actuator. This is operated by a push button within the tractor cab.
FRONT CASTOR WHEELS
Front semi-pneumatic castor wheels allow the FlailDek FX to follow ground contours independently from the tractor.
SAFE CLIPPING DISPERSION
Safety is paramount when mowing in public areas. The FlailDek FX expels debris in a downward direction behind the mower.
The Pegasus is fitted with a Duratorque Suspension System capable of highway speeds.
Belt cavity wash ports for all decks.
Safety chains, mudguards and LED lights for road transport.
Trimax turf tyres help distribute the weight of the mower for less ground disturbance.
WHEELS RUN ON CUT GRASS
As the rear deck is located between the rear transport wheels, grass is not flattened by the wheels prior to mowing, a feature unique to Trimax.
Contour-following and cut quality is compromised when decks are over 3m wide. The X-WAM features multiple smaller decks for superior cut quality.
FULL HYDRAULIC OPERATION
The X-WAM uses full hydraulic operation for deck retraction into road transport mode.
All moving surfaces have long life synthetic bushes, or greasable bearings and remote grease points for hassle-free maintenance.
Comes standard with a heavy duty roller with 1/2″ wall thickness. Suitable for more demanding applications such as roadsides.
SteadFast Sealed Spindles have eliminated the tedious task of regular greasing. Snake now also features maintenance free pivot bushes.
RAPIDSET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Clearly displayed cut height indicators allow for simple and easy alteration or resetting of cut heights. You can adjust heights without having to raise and lower the wings.
HIGH SPINDLE SPEEDS
The Trimax Topper has more spindles than comparison shaft driven toppers. These also spin at higher spindle speeds with shorter blade beams. This results in significantly more cuts per forward meter of travel and a much finer clip.
LOCTEK ROLLER BEARING RETENTION SYSTEM
A patent pending stubless roller bearing system for vastly improved retention, bearing life and replacement ease.
Skids on Warlord trailing arms prolong mower life in demanding terrain. The skids can be moved and replaced when required.
ANTI BLOCK SYSTEM
Topper spindles are fitted with a unique anti-block mechanism which deters long grass from catching and binding around the spindle restricting movement.
IMPROVES FEED QUALITY
Topping can be used to control poor quality pasture components such as removal of seed-heads and thistles and prevent their reoccurance.
Topper is short front to rear and mounts close to the tractor; allowing the use of smaller tractors. The high underbody clearance and open deck design allows for good flow of grass into the mowing deck and a clean ejection of cut grass.
With only 4 carefully positioned grease points and robust spindles with sealed ball bearings, the Trimax Striker has incredibly low maintenance requirements.
Striker exceeds international safety standards and is backed up by our meticulous testing and support network. Striker is a mower that can be used with confidence even when mowing in confined areas.
Striker incorporates decades of experience with multi-spindled rotary roller mowers. Designed to complement compact tractors, Striker retains the attention to detail that minimises downtime and makes servicing easy. The cutting system, body integrity and sealed ball bearing spindles have been proven with extensive and rigorous testing.
We’ve eliminated the need to grease the pivot points and our updated spindle technology requires less maintenance and offers greater simplicity. You can spend more time mowing and less time maintaining!
EASY TO CLEAN
The improved belt chamber design includes front openings, allowing grass to be easily washed or blown out.
ACCURATE SPINDLE SETTING TECHNOLOGY
Trimax’s unique and protected spindle technology ensures spindle height is perfectly aligned across the length of each deck, providing the most accurate and consistent cut in the market.
To ensure optimum efficiency we’ve reduced the number of grease points by 15%, giving you 35% less maintenance costs than the Trimax Pegasus S3.
3 YEAR WARRANTY
We build mowers that last and they’re supported with a 3 year industry leading warranty. Our robust design, coupled with our experienced service and support network, ensures minimum downtime and maximum productivity.
SAFE CLIPPING DISPERSION
Safety is paramount when mowing in public areas. This is why Trimax has designed the Ezeemow FX to expel debris in a downward direction behind the mower.
Somewhat of an operators dream, these spindles offer extremely low maintenance and remove the regular task of regular greasing. As such, costs are reduced and productivity is enhanced.
Coarseness of mulch is controlled by the height of the rear flap. The finest mulch is produced with the flap in the lowest position, this low dispersion also improves safety in public spaces. Lifting the flap fully open whilst servicing provides uninhibited access to flails and rotor.
HYDRAULIC SIDE SHIFT
The Warlord S3 can be positioned directly behind the tractor or quickly offset by up to 19″. This feature assists with transport and manoeuvring around obstacles.
Helps direct prunings and other foliage into the front aperture of the mower, which would otherwise be too high or wide. It also helps keep debris away from the hydraulic system for protection in challenging environments.
A 1/4″ replaceable internal liner reduces noise and minimizes outer body damage prolonging mower life.
MOST VERSATILE STEALTH
The improved cutting chamber and baffle design directs airflow from the blades out and over the rear roller. This improves cut quality and spread in both long and short grass.
QUIKLIFT TEMPORARY DECK LIFT
Enables all three mower decks to be raised without disengaging the PTO to traverse driveways, paths and pavements.
AUTOMATIC BELT TENSIONERS
Eliminates the need for belt adjustments and improves drive to the spindles and blades.
Allows continuous cutting while turning sharply for maximum productivity.
With three articulating decks the Snake has the ability to follow contours with minimal scalping.
EASY HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Clearly displayed stainless steel height indicators allow for the easy adjustment of cut heights without having to raise or lower the wings.
FULL WIDTH ROLLERS
A large diameter rear roller on the ProCut follows the contours and supports the mower across its entire width, providing excellent anti-scalp protection.
STAND ON COVERS
Provides safe and easy access to the rear of the tractor when coupling the mower.
BELT CAVITY DUAL WASH FLAPS
Provides easy access for removal of grass and drainage of water from belt cavity.
FULL WIDTH ROLLERS
Full width rollers on all decks follow the contours of the ground and provide excellent anti-scalp protection. Rollers also allow mowing along the edge of banks or paths, and produces a superb striping effect for those wishing to pattern their turf. Safety is enhanced as rollers contain debris in the cutting chamber.
RAPIDSET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Clearly displayed cut height indicators allow for simple and easy alteration or resetting of cut heights.
With their unique ’tilt forward’ design, carefully engineered centre of gravity and optimised blade thickness, LazerBladez achieve a superior cut and finish. They’re also cost efficient compared to reels or solid blade beams as only the fling-tip requires replacement.
Full width rear roller prevents scalping, permits the edge of the mower to be run along kerbs, adds to overall safety and produces striping.
NEW IMPROVED ROTOR
Designed to withstand the toughest environments our new rotor is more durable ensuring downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
When in a downward position the converter creates suction, which lifts grass for a superb cut. For work in heavy grass, lift converter for increased grass intake.
LOCTEK ROLLER BEARING RETENTION SYSTEM
A stubless roller bearing system for vastly improved roller retention, roller alignment, increased bearing life and minimal maintenance. Includes our new increased strength tri-bolt bearing housing.
