New Mower for Parish Council

The Parish Council has taken delivery this week of its new mower replacing its previous nine-year-old model.

The new powerful Kubota diesel engine will mean a faster, more efficient job which will enable the machine to power through any tall or wet grass. It’s also both environmentally and economically friendly, thanks to its enhanced combustion efficiency, low vibration, reduced noise levels and reduced fuel costs.

This new four-wheel drive machine will ensure that the Parish Council continues to maintain both its own open spaces and the highway verges within the Brixworth parish.
