Overview

Spearhead’s Twiga Classic series reach mower incorporates a strong combination of power and flair with a stripped back look that contributes to the best value for money machine on the market.

Based on the highly acclaimed Excel 565 – a legend in the Spearhead stable, the Twiga Classic series satisfies the requirements of a host of different markets and applications whilst building on the same robust technology as larger models in the Spearhead range.

Presented with the possibility to be fitted with a multitude of attachments and available with a quick attach coupling system for ease of exchange the Twiga Classic delivers in abundance.

Powered by a 66hp hydraulic system, the Twiga classic series is available with sideways reach options of 4.7, 5.0, 5.4 and 5.9 metres with rear mounting as standard.

A choice of Cable or Precision Proportional controls give fingertip action of the arm and head movements to deliver precise control and exemplary operator comfort throughout the working day.

As with all models in the Spearhead range the Twiga Classic features a fully independent hydraulic system providing the optimum flow of oil to arm control functions and the flailhead drive motor.

Parallel arm action as standard makes the Twiga Classic simple to use as the arm geometry maintains the same cutting head angle as it moves in and out.

Safety protection is offered in the form of a hydraulic break out ram which when activated lifts the cutting head clear of obstructions and automatically returns it once the obstruction has been cleared.

Designed for farmers, contractors and local authorities – the Twiga Classic range offers long term output, robustness and durability.

Attachment options

Flailhead

Standard with the new MP2 Flailhead used throughout the high specification Spearhead range, the TWIGA 500 benefits from contractors specification technology in a heavy duty farmers package. Build quality and engineering excellence are nothing more than what would be expected and it is now possible to benefit from this on your TWIGA 500 machine.

Featuring a 140mm T flail and 6 inch roller, maximum durability and increased cutting capacity is confirmed and not just expected.

Quadsaw

With a working width of 2.1 metres the quality LRS 2001 Quadsaw is ideal for managing heavy growth and tree limbs of up to 150mm (6”) diameter. Widely used throughout Europe the LRS2001 perfectly compliments your TWIGA machine, giving exceptional cutting capacity on even the most stubborn growth.
