The Flailbot, a wirelessly operated track mower that’s ideally suited to diﬃcult terrains such as mountain sides, reservoir banks, roadsides and oil reﬁneries is one of Worcestershire, UK based Bomford Turner’s most notable products.
Covering challenging, steeply inclined terrain with a traditional man-on-board power mower can put a driver at risk, so the remotely controlled Flailbot does the job while keeping the operator safe.
All four Flailbot models are powered by Perkins three and four cylinder 400 Series engines meeting EU Stage IIIB emission standards and will soon be ﬁtted with Stage V Perkins engines built in Peterborough, UK. The 400 Series engines deliver ample power and torque, and perform reliably under arduous or extended duty, without overheating. The whole powertrain has been designed and tested to work continuously, even on gradients of up to 55°.
Rhys Thomas, Bomford’s Flailbot product specialist said: “One of the main USPs for the Flailbot that myself and the rest of the sales team use, is the fact that it has a Perkins engine. From the better fuel economy oﬀered to the extreme reliability and less noise pollution than our competitors.”
He continued: “Also, the fact that every customer who has had experience of a machine with a Perkins power unit has gone on to then mention themselves about how reliable they were. And ﬁnally, the fact that it is a British company really does go down well with the customer.”
For Bomford and its customers, the reassurance of immediate on the ground support from Perkins’ UK distributor, Diperk Power Solutions, is another reason for staying Perkins-powered.
“The ﬁeld service support that has been oﬀered by DiPerk is a great selling point but as yet due to the reliability of the engine we have not needed any support,” said Sam Sharp, Bomford’s parts sales manager.
