Total efficiency

Etesia’s Hydro 80 success lies in its specially contoured deck which lifts and blows the clippings directly into the rear collector, without clogging. On uneven ground, anti-scalp rollers keep the blades out of trouble. It has an 80cm cutting width with an electromagnetic clutch and blade brake as an integral part of the system.

Built-in grassbox

The integrated 240-litre grassbox is emptied without leaving the driving position. For-ease-of-use the system is hydraulically assisted.

Sound alarm

A buzzer sounds when the large capacity grassbox is full.

Cutting in long grass

For meadows, long grass or other cut and drop applications, simply remove the base of the grassbox. A side deflector (MD 80) allows the hydro 80 to windrow cut grass. This option is often used in long grass.
