Who's got one of the new Hayter Harrier's
« on: June 14, 2019, 04:55:47 PM »
Who's got one of the new hayter Harrier 48 Model 475A, 48 Pro 479A, Or 56: 575A, 56 Pro 579A? Just wondering what you think of them compared to the older models.  These are the ones with the BBC blade clutch.

Think the contractor will love them as they are so bloody fast compared to the older models.  In fact if I didn't know better I'd say they have made them a tad too fast for most users. That said they do already supply a kit to sow them down, but I haven't seen or fitted one yet.

Getting back to the speed on these new Hayter Harriers.

 :hmm: I do believe Hayter's have screwed up a little on this, you nearly have to run behind the 41 Pro, so I'd imagine the operator is going to be slightly knackered after a days mowing, not to mention there's no way it'll cut properly at that speed, especially with todays reduced engine speeds.

Hayter's do offer a speed reduction kit which consists of a couple of sprockets and a chain, the one for the roller being larger.  There's also a new plastic chain cover in the kit modified to fit over the new enlarged sprocket.  But unfortunately this kit is not free, and you'll have to stump up for it.  It's about £20 for the kit if I remember correctly.

Anyway, happy mowing.  ;)

Mick.
I have a older customer who went from a early throttle control 48 to a new 41 with vari speed (the 41Vari speed is faster than the 48 vari speed in the spec) and it was just to fast for him ..even on the lowest setting. Being a fixed speed in-start all I could do for him was back the engines speed off to 2500 rpm (not ideal I know for blade speed ) to allow him to at least use the mower. At least he only cuts short lawn grass and not scruffy longer stuff.
No feedback on a new 48 with Vari speed another customer has as yet ..but I clocked the plastic roller though.
