Ferris Introduces FRC7 with true Hybrid Technology – Remote Controlled Mower

Ferris®  introduces the FRC7 commercial remote-controlled mower with true hybrid technology that uses the latest mowing technology: The 48V DC drive system provides power to the blades and to the tracks. The FRC7 can drive up to 200 m on battery power only without having to start the engine.

Less physical strain, no exposure to vibrations, and an overall safer operation.

The new Ferris® FRC7 remote-controlled mower ticks all the boxes and greatly improves the operator’s ease and comfort of maintaining the urban green space. Especially those areas that are difficult to reach in terms of underground and orientation. Mowing banks and other inclined areas can potentially cause dangerous situations for both the operator and bystanders. Using dedicated remote-controlled machinery drastically reduces risk, physical effort and exposure to vibration, noise and emissions. The FRC7’s tracked low-gravity undercarriage ensures stability on steep inclines up to 55° and provides superior traction. Both the tracks and mower deck are electrically driven by a hybrid e-drive system that combines a combustion engine with a battery drive system, resulting in a highly effective powertrain. The FRC7 can mow forwards and backwards, making turning on a slope unnecessary. This will prevent potential damage to the underlying soil. The Vanguard® EFI engine is fuel-efficient and operates independently from the electrical system. Its load-sensing ability keeps the mower deck performing optimally and automatically adjusts the mowing speed when conditions get tougher.
