McConnel: Lamma preview for new 75-series power arm

By WniF editors

McConnel gave its UK customers their first look at the new PA7775T hedge/verge cutter at Lamma 2017.

Featuring a 7.7m reach, a telescopic arm with a 1.35m extension, and 75hp high-performance hydraulics, the machine is the first incarnation of a complete new series designed for professional contractors.

Among the key new features of the machine is an innovative new high-efficiency oil tank and cooling system that deliver an outstanding de-aeration performance, ensure a very low overall flow velocity and eliminates areas in the tank where resting oil can concentrate.

This improves efficiency, performance and durability, ensures consistent cooling in all weather conditions and reduces heat build-up.

Other key upgrades include:

  • an automated hydraulic reversing fan;
  • soft-start electric rotor control for enhanced durability;
  • new modern styling with a one-piece full-width bumper bar;
  • easy access cover for service and maintenance;
  • cab protection as standard;
  • LED road lighting with integrated protection;
  • high-visibility strobe working lights.

The new machine also offers a suite of advanced features including: a choice of advanced control systems; McConnel’s famous Easy Drive System, which eases fatigue, boosts comfort and increases working speeds by up to 4.5 times the norm; the most stable and secure mounting systems in the industry; and an unrivalled choice of cutting heads and attachments.

Precision-engineered from super-strength Strenx (Domex) steel, the PA7775T is the latest addition to McConnel’s award-winning fleet of Power Arms, and is designed for large-scale contractors.

The machine will be officially launched later in 2017.
