ETESIA Ride On Mower Hydro 80

Hydro 80 still available

The Etesia Hydro 80 cuts and collects both long and short grass, without clogging. Add to that its compact dimensions, ease of use, hydrostatic drive and powerful 15hp twin-cylinder KAWASAKI engine, and you have a highly efficient machine offering the kind of output that would easily replace three walk-behind mowers.

Total efficiency

Etesia’s Hydro 80 success lies in its specially contoured deck which lifts and blows the clippings directly into the rear collector, without clogging. On uneven ground, anti-scalp rollers keep the blades out of trouble. It has an 80cm cutting width with an electromagnetic clutch and blade brake as an integral part of the system.

Built-in grassbox

The integrated 240-litre grassbox is emptied without leaving the driving position. For-ease-of-use the system is hydraulically assisted.

Sound alarm

A buzzer sounds when the large capacity grassbox is full.

Cutting in long grass

For meadows, long grass or other cut and drop applications, simply remove the base of the grassbox. A side deflector (MD 80) allows the hydro 80 to windrow cut grass. This option is often used in long grass.

Efficient and go-anywhere

Measuring 1.98m x 0.82m wide, hydro 80 is easily transported in a truck or trailer. It can pass through most gateways and its tight turning circle makes it ideal for small or awkward areas. It mows close to walls and fences and is highly manoeuvrable.
