Designed to tackle uneven terrain and heavy vegetation, the German-made remote-controlled mulching mower offers two models, the 9600-80 (17 horsepower [13kW] V-Twin Kawasaki engine) and the 9600-112 (Briggs & Stratton 24hp [18kW] V-Twin Commercial series engine).

These two engines power a generator that produces 48 volts that drive the mowers two stepless electric drive motors that push out 500nm of torque each.

Inlon managing director Jim Jardim says that adding the Civiline Light-Track LT9600, it allows Inlon to offer a product for everyone.

"When buying a commercial mower, there’s a balance between speed and versatility because the mower that will clear a level field quickly is not safe or robust enough to manage slopes and heavy vegetation," Jardim says.

"For slope mowing, safety is paramount so remote control operation is essential. Adding new models to the Civiline range means we now offer mowers that maximise productivity for all different applications, this includes level and steep sloping grounds, even and uneven terrain and all types of vegetation from grass to very heavy scrub and saplings."

The Civiline Light-Track LT9600 is capable of working on slopes up to 50 degrees and is available in 80cm or 112cm cutting widths.

Inlon says that the new ‘light tracked’ mowers can handle rougher slope work than a wheeled mower but don’t cause the level of ground damage or disturbance typically found with tracked mowers.

"This is because the Civiline Light-Track LT9600 is lighter and faster than a heavy tracked mower – importantly, it also cuts in both forward and reverse, reducing the need to spin the mower," the company says.

Other features include the machines ability to work at an impressive 10km/hour. The Civiline Light-Track also has zero turn, and remote control range of 300 metres.
