Mowing Long Grass: Grillo Climbers for Long Grass and Steep Slopes


One always needs the right machine for mowing long grass. Apart from looking ungainly, long grass can restrict access to different parts of your acreage. However, you need to have the right mower to cut long grass. If we are talking ride-on mowers, just about any standard mower can do the job when the grass is short and all you are concerned with are basically 'bowling green flat' grass. However, long grass such even up to a metre high is a different thing altogether. If you try mowing long grass with a mower not specifically designed for such purpose, you may be in a for a lot of woes. First of all, the mower will not cut well and will leave a clumpy finish. Mowers not designed for cutting long grass can easily suffer damage such as shredded drive belts and broken transmissions.

You may also need to use a handheld brushcutter, or whipper snipper to cut the grass short before bringing in thetractor mower to finish the rest of the work. This will mean extra work and much longer time to finish the job.

However, one can avoid all such issues with a Grillo Climber. All Grillo Climber models are designed to cut long and thick grasses with ease. All of the models offer extremely safe mowing options and will mow long grass, weeds, scrub, etc. without a problem. The more powerful of the models will tackle, in addition to the above, wild oats, marshmallow grass, mustard grass, thick kikuyu, blackberry and more on the trickiest of terrain.

Apart from helping you mow down the longer grasses easily, a big plus with these models is that they will let you work on steeper slopes and ridges without any difficulty. While working slopes above 25 degrees, it is extremely important that you work with a safe and reliable machine. Grillo models, with their front brakes, low slung designs, and differential lock systems, provide excellent stability and complete safety. In addition, the models are extremely durable, too. However, keep in mind that Grillo Climbers are normally meant for large blocks of land and the cost of the machines may not make them viable for residential properties with little acreage.
