RC Slope Mowers
Wisconsin-based RC Mowers supplies high-quality, safe and efficient remote-controlled slope mowers for cutting through grass and brush on uneven landscapes. They’re a must-have for golf courses and universities, as well as any business with lots of land to manage.
Why Use a Slope Mower?
Remote-controlled slope mowers offer several advantages over their ride-mower counterparts:
- They reduce risk. If you’re going up a steep incline, the risk of a rollover increases along with your angle. Safety authorities like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Park Service (NPS) have approved remote-controlled mowers for slopes over 22 degrees — though RC Mowers can go up to 50 degrees.
- They are built for the job. While regular mowers are designed for flat ground, manufacturers create RC mowers with slopes in mind. RC mowers are built for commercial applications and high levels of productivity.
- They are easy to control. With easy-to-use remote controls, operation is simple. You can control the mower from up to 1,000 feet away.
Some of the primary users of sidehill mowers are golf course management teams. Keeping the course neat and well-groomed is critical to gameplay, not to mention it is more visually pleasing for players and guests. And if a course has a club or hosts events, it has even more reason to focus on appearance.
The layout of a golf course or other wide-sprawling landscape, such as a university campus or apartment complex, is usually filled with hills and valleys, making it tough for standard mowers to reach where they need to go. That’s where slope mowers come in. They can easily traverse these landscapes and get close cuts at high speeds.
Types of RC Slope Mowers
There are several styles of slope mowers, with a key differentiator being the movement system, i.e., tracks or wheels. Each system is better suited to moving the remote mower over different landscapes.
In both instances, RC has one special advantage over the competition — you don’t need an anchor or winch for steep slopes. Many other mowers need these extra tools to take on harsh angles, but RC’s commercial hillside mowers can traverse slopes up to 50 degrees without them.
Here’s how the two designs compare:
- Tracked mowers: Tracked mowers do best on particularly steep slopes, muddy areas and places with thick brush. They can even cut down saplings up to an inch high. They have a lower ground pressure, making them better for soft, wet terrain where the tracks are less likely to get stuck after being pushed into the ground.
- Wheeled mowers: Mowers with wheels have slightly lower slope capabilities, but their deck sizes are bigger, meaning they cut over a larger area and they offer greater speed. If you have a lot of relatively hard ground to cover without many steep hills over 35 degrees, a wheeled sidehill mower can finish the job faster than a tracked one.
Each version provides commercial-grade mowing power in a safer, more productive design. You can also get accessories like a neck strap and waist harness for the control system and a waterproof carrying case.
