User feedback: James Fitzpatrick, Cork

Contractor James Fitzpatrick from Cork has invested in the Tanco Autocut to replace a front/rear six metre combination. Used on the same McCormick X7.660 tractor, he says output is up by 50 per cent while using 23-25 per cent less fuel.


“The cost savings are already being felt,” says Mr Fitzpatrick. “We got a demo of the pre-series mower through our local dealer and I was not sure what to expect, but I was impressed from the word go.


“The trailed chassis and axle spreads the weight between the tractor and the mower wheels. And the improved flotation of the mower beds, plus straight drivelines, results in a reduced power requirement and lower fuel consumption.


“It has made a huge difference to my business,” he says. “Upgrading to the 8.9m model was a no brainer.”
