Buying the right machine

Remote-controlled slope mowers are highly specialised pieces of equipment operated by qualified professionals in some of the most challenging mowing environments. It’s therefore essential that buyers make sure the machine is the correct fit for the type of work and workloads due to be undertaken. We recommend addressing the following aspects before making a choice.


Remote-controlled mowers were developed to handle demanding, often hazardous, grass-cutting situations such as steep slopes and heavily wooded areas. A powerful engine is important to provide the power to cut through dense undergrowth, but also to deliver enough power for wheels or tracks to climb slopes and manoeuvre around obstacles.


Manoeuvrability is at the centre of a remote-controlled mower’s design. Its purpose is to get to and cut grass and brush in places that are unsafe or difficult for people to access. While some remote-controlled slope mowers have large, often air-filled, wheels for rough terrain, others have caterpillar tracks to cope with extreme terrain and conditions.


Some machines include features such as brushless electric motors for reduced maintenance, auto-speed and hybrid drives. Others include a winch to deal with even steeper inclines.

Authorised Dealer Support

Buying from an authorised dealer or distributor means users have access to the best technical support for the life of the remote-controlled mower. Genuine parts, technical expertise and warranty advice from an approved dealer or distributor will help ensure owners get the most from their investment.

"The main reason why we chose Kawasaki engines was the efficient lubrication system. Thanks to this our SPIDER mowers work without any problems even on very steep slopes."
