Offering a huge 115cm cutting-width and driven by a very high-powered Honda engine, this highly manoeuvrable two-wheeled scythe mower from Bertolini is ideal for orchard-keepers, estate managers and homeowners maintaining substantial grounds. The engine is a Honda GX270; a 270cc four-stroke, OHV-type unit with precision-engineered parts for smooth operation; a dual-element air-filter and cast-iron cylinder sleeve for durability; and an increased compression-ratio for impressive fuel-efficiency.
The Bertolini 411/9H Heavy-Duty Scythe Mower has a six-speed gearbox (three forward; three reverse), which not only aids manoeuvrability, but also allows you to select a ground-speed that’s most appropriate for the type of vegetation you’re clearing. Independently driven wheels make it possible to turn on a sixpence; while a differential-lock gives you substantially more traction when engaged, in turn enabling you to operate effectively on slopes and muddy ground. The gears are immersed in an oil bath for improved performance and superior long-term reliability.
For nimble agility and a faster work rate, the Bertolini 411/9H has been fitted with a rapid forward / reverse shuttle that’s positioned directly to hand. The handlebars are isolated from engine-vibration and can be adjusted vertically through six-stages to suit the operator’s height.
More than 25 separate attachments are available for the 411/9H, including grass-management tools, seasonal aids; and agricultural accessories. All attachments benefit from ‘QuickFit’ coupling, so no tools are needed to fit them.
