55-Series

A 21st century reinvention of McConnel’s iconic PA93 and PA50 machines, the 55-series offers a winning combination of power, performance and value for money.

Powered by 55hp hydraulics, the machines come with a choice of 5.1m and 5.4m reach and offer a wide range of attachments and customisation options – increasing versatility and enabling customers to create a machine to match their precise personal requirements.

Overview

Designed for farmers, contractors and local government green maintenance teams, 55-series machines are robust and reliable with cast-iron pumps and gearboxes and high-capacity oil filters as standard.

Versatility

With a wide choice of work attachments including cutterbars, rotary heads, Multisaws and a ditch and grip cleaner, 55-series machines can tackle far more than just hedge-cutting and verge-mowing - enabling contractors to expand the services they can offer their customers.

Tackle tough tasks

55-series machines can be specced with McConnel’s heavy-duty Omega rotor and flails, or a 1.5m Multicut flailhead with heavy duty F16 flails– McConnel’s most powerful cutting tool. Either combination will make light work of the toughest clearance jobs, including hedges with three years growth.
