The Altéa arm mower stands out for its original design and offers a hot-rolled boom for the first time in the agricultural range. Particularly well suited to the requirement of local authorities, agricultural machinery cooperatives, farmers and landscapers, the Altéa arm mower combines ease of use and efficiency.
With a maximum horizontal reach of 5.50 m, this arm mower has a power rating of 55 hp and combined low pressure single-lever control.
The Altéa arm mower has a central pivot, a cooling system and a 1.20 m rotor. Lastly, weighing in at 1.3 tonnes, the Altéa arm mower is mounted on a three-point hitch at the rear of a tractor.
