NI Deal for Shibaura Slope Mowers


Taking the number on their fleet up to six and supplied through the Belfast Cyril Johnston dealership, the Northern Ireland Western Education & Library Board has now taken delivery of a further two 28hp diesel powered Shibaura compact SG280 slope mowers.

Speaking for the board, Procurement Officer Hugh McCallan said, "We took our first SG280 following an accident in North Antrim. We needed to reassess the suitability of our equipment for working on more difficult terrain. Our remit was to source tractors that were certified as safe when working up to 30 degree angles and this led us to the compact SG280.

"They are used right across our area maintaining education authority property and have proved to our satisfaction they are a robust and reliable machine. At some point in the future we may well be adding more Shibauras to our fleet."

Paul Butterly, Managing Director of FGM Claymore Ltd, UK Distributor for the Shibaura compact ride-on tractor range says, "The Shibaura compact professional brand is recognized for offering added value and we are seeing sustained tractor sales growth in the UK. If I could describe the Shibaura in a few words it would be reliability and performance. The feed-back we get from end users is extremely positive."
