Machinery Mondays: It's all about the Major Mowers


This week’s Machinery Mondays, sees us take a trip to the farm of Rod Humphries, a farmer who is reaping the benefits of using a Major Mower.

Rod lives in Boroondara in Australia and lays the claim of being the areas best driver.

“I’m the number one tractor driver,” he jokes.

Rod has driven tractors for over 25 years, meaning he of all people knows what he is talking about. He first got into Major mowers last year, due to his old mower not being strong enough. It wasn’t built for towing and left Rod and the team facing a lot of problems.

He saw the mower in a catalogue and after watching the live demonstration, they were hooked. They brought the demonstration mower in for a week and could see instantly, this was the way to go.

“Its nearly as good as a cylinder mower really….Its good quality, well designed and a better class mower,” said Rod.

“We haven’t had any real problems”, he added.

He listed the height adjustment and the ease at which it can be done as the major benefit the team have found from making the switch. Check out the video above, it is well worth the watch!
