Schiller Enters the Brush Cutter Market with New Little Wonder Hydro Brush Cutter
Southampton, PA – (February 18, 2011) Schiller Grounds Care, manufacturer of BOB-CAT, Classen, Little Wonder, Mantis, Ryan and Steiner brand outdoor power equipment, will launch a new hydrostatic-drive brush cutter under the longstanding landscape equipment brand, Little Wonder, at this year’s Rental Show in Las Vegas, NV February 28th – March 2nd.
The new Little Wonder Hydro Brush Cutter (Hydro BRC-24) has an attractive, rugged design that is sure to make the new unit a standout in the brush cutter category.
Rugged good looks aside, the top-of-the-line features of the new Hydro BRC-24 ultimately make the product a genuine Little Wonder. The Hydro BRC-24 is constructed of 7- & 10-gauge welded steel with a 28-inch cutter deck that houses a reversible 24-inch cutter blade, offering height adjustments from 4-5.5-inches with the power to cut sapling growth up to two inches thick. The Hydro BRC-24 utilizes a durable HondaÒ GXV390 (390cc) engine and offers many impressive drive and user features that include:
– Hydro-Gear T2 Hydrostatic Transaxle: supplies infinitely variable speed up to 4.2 mph forward/2.6 mph reverse.
– Noram Mechanical Blade Clutch: provides for “clutch-less” forward, instant reverse drive propulsion and ensures constant blade engagement with a blade brake mechanism that stops the blade nearly instantaneously when disengaged for user safety.
– Solid Linkage Controls: 3/8” solid rods (not wearable cables) connect operator controls to the transmission, mower deck, and park brake.
– Speed Control Dialer: allows the user to set a maximum speed by user skill set or when terrain conditions may warrant a slower operating speed. Setting a maximum speed ensures a firm grip on control handles for concise control and eliminates the risk of accidental speed fluctuation by the operator.
– Dual 16” flat resistant foam filled urethane tires are standard.
Little Wonder warrants the Hydro Brush Cutter for 2-Years (Commercial/Rental) against defect (engine warranted separately by manufacturer).
In its 52nd consecutive year as an exhibitor at The Rental Show, Little Wonder has often taken advantage of ‘rental’s biggest show’ to gauge interest in new equipment offerings. “Making a good first impression in the rental industry is imperative”, states Linda Beattie, Public Relations Specialist for Schiller Grounds Care. “Rental is an ideal market for moderate to large size niche products like brush cutters and The Rental Show will provide us with the platform to launch the new Hydro Brush Cutter to a large network of ARA member dealerships.”
The Little Wonder brand was born in 1922 with the introduction of the world’s first Hedge Trimmer. Today, Little Wonder is an industry-leading brand in the debris handling and grounds maintenance equipment categories with product offerings that include hedge trimmers (gas and electric-powered), powered edgers, bed shapers, a full line of wheeled blowers, debris vacuums and truck loaders. The new Hydro Brush Cutter (BRC-24) brings the Little Wonder brand into a new product category and broadens its already impressive grounds maintenance product lineup.
