Westwood V23-50D Diesel Garden Tractor

Westwood V23-50D Diesel Garden Tractor

Hand-built in Britain to the highest engineering standards and bristling with practical and convenient features; the refined Westwood V23-50D is the ultimate way for a homeowner to maintain a beautifully cut and neatly-striped lawn.Driving the blades, rear-wheels and power take-off is a 784cc Yanmar three-cylinder engine, which, unlike most domestic garden-tractor engines, runs on diesel rather than petrol, thereby lessening fuel-costs; reducing the emission of harmful exhaust gasses; and increasing torque at lower revs. The high-levels of torque developed by this engine (46Nm) are harnessed by Westwood€™s innovative €˜hybrid-drive€™ technology, which ensures that, even at low engine-speeds there€™s ample torque for challenging cutting-conditions; adverse terrain; and PTO attachments.The Westwood V23-50D Diesel Garden Tractor is available with an expansive 127cm Combi mower-deck, which offers both mulching and rear-discharge modes, with mulching saving a great deal of time by eliminating the need to collect clippings. Alternatively this tractor may be fitted with a 105cm High Grass Mulch Deck for orchards and other areas of rough grass.Should you wish to pick-up the clippings, you can fit Westwood€™s optional Powered Grass-Collector, which employs powered brushes rather than suction to lift debris, thereby ensuring even long, damp grass can be successfully collected (leaves, twigs, pine-cones, etc will also be bagged). The PGC holds an immense 390-litres of garden detritus; and can be emptied automatically using a dashboard-mounted button. A real pleasure to drive, the Westwood V23-50D employs a hydrostatic transmission, which allows you to adjust the ground-speed in infinite increments using dual foot-pedals €“ one for forward; the other for reverse.It features an Operating Performance Indicator, which makes it easy to keep an eye on speed and economy; and it offers a 10 preset heights-of-cut, which can be set as low as 12mm (as low as most cylinder mowers) for a really close-cut, manicured finish. Adjustments are made using a lever positioned immediately to the driver€™s right hand.Anyone who has spent all day riding around on a garden tractor will know that it can put a strain on your back. Westwood have remedied this problem by fitting the V23-50D with an ergonomic padded seat that can be set-up to suit the operator.A double-skinned engine cowling reduces noise, making things more pleasant for you and your neighbours; while a parking-brake, which must be engaged for the engine to start, works to maximise the safety of the user and those in the vicinity of the machine.Also featured is a differential-lock, which you can engage to avoid wheel-spin when the going gets really tough. Enhance the versatility of your purchase with any or all of the following attachments: 390-litre Powered Grass-Collector; Powered Scarifier; Powered Broadcast-Spreader; Dozer Blade.
