PRESS RELEASE

New Zealand-based Trimax Mowing Systems is marking its 40th anniversary of operation in 2021 with the release of a new brand video, sharing the story of the company’s past and looking into the future. Trimax began exporting to Australia through Howard Australia in 1985 and established a permanent Australian facility and distribution network under the Trimax global brand in 2013.

Trimax was founded in 1981 by Bob Sievwright, a New Zealand engineer and salesperson with family roots in agriculture and a passion for high-performance machinery. While working as a salesperson, Bob developed the Gamma Flail, an innovative aerodynamic mower flail which would simplify manufacturing processes and increase operational efficiency as compared to then-contemporary welded flails.

Bob gained his first customer after six weeks of development: Southern Engineering in Tauranga, New Zealand. Unfortunately, the arrangement only lasted a month before Southern Engineering burnt to the ground. In a bold effort to keep the Gamma Flail on the market, Bob bought out the remains of the business and made a deal with another local flail mower manufacturer, Gamman Engineering, combining them to form the beginning of Trimax Mowing Systems.

Bob’s determination to produce results that would lead to the success of his customers set the stage for Trimax’s success. Each problem was a potential opportunity approached with a curious and humble attitude, emphasizing the importance of fully understanding both the customer and the issue before working together toward a solution. “Investment in our customer relationships has supported the growth of our own business,” says Trimax CEO Michael Sievwright.

Today Trimax has manufacturing, assembly, and warehousing facilities in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Michael says, “Trimax has had to learn to adapt to each of our different markets. We learned that we needed to design products to suit market-specific needs and preferences, relying on our technical foundations and pillars of culture to guide our connections to our customers.” Trimax’s rotary and flail equipment is now a market-leading mowing solution around the world and can be found on such high-profile turf as England’s Silverstone Race Circuit and US PGA Championship courses.

Looking to the future, Trimax will continue to build on those foundations and pillars to advance into the digital age, making smarter and more responsive systems and investigating the opportunities offered by emerging technologies such as automation and electrification. “We’ve had 40 years of innovation which challenges the status quo. Thinking outside the box is something we’re good at because we’re driven to find better ways forward,” says Michael Sievwright.

Introducing the Trimax Force

Introducing the Trimax Force

Trimax Mowing Systems is excited to debut its newest heavy duty flail mower, the Trimax Force.

The Trimax Force is the multitool mower and mulcher you need to get the job done, no matter what that job might be. Designed tough for roadsides, orchards, and vineyards, engineered to be efficient for open space management, and equipped with versatility to handle everything in between, the Trimax Force is the ultimate mower for producing an overall superior finish in almost any application.

Our strongest and most adaptable flail mower yet, with a wide range of options available for customisation, the Trimax Force can be tailored to perfectly suit customers’ mowing and mulching needs.

What’s great about the Trimax Force?

Originally starting its design cycle as the “Warlord/S4,” the Trimax Force incorporates all the best features of our Warlord flail mower with the latest product enhancements and developments inspired by feedback from Trimax customers and dealers.

Increased Robustness.

  • Heavy-duty body with 50% thicker endplates than Warlord/S3. 
  • New rotor bearing assembly provides 50% increase in dynamic load capacity and 35% increase in static load capacity. 
  • New heavy-duty skids made from high strength wear steel. 

Expanded Versatility.

  • Meets ISO standards for connection to a wider range of tractors than the original Warlord. 
  • Choose from our widest range of available options yet. 
  • Mow closer to obstacles with a 27% decrease in distance between the edge of cut and edge of the mower. 

Lower Maintenance.

  • Auto belt tensioning improves drive to the rotor without manual adjustments. 
  • Maintenance-free roller bearings require no regular greasing. 
  • Improved pruning guide design guides material into the cutting chamber and prevents debris collection on the mower. 

Hello Trimax Force, Farewell Trimax Warlord

With the introduction of the Trimax Force, we’re bidding a fond farewell to the Trimax Warlord, officially retiring the design. However, Warlord parts will still be available for purchase through the Trimax Web Shop.

The Trimax Warlord was first released in 1989 as an improved version of the Trimax Mulchmasta (1985-1989). With its retirement, the Warlord leaves behind an impressive legacy of 32 years in market and a strong foundation for its own successor, the Trimax Force.

Trimax Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

Trimax Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

In 2021, Trimax Mowing Systems is celebrating our 40th anniversary – that’s 40 years of innovation, service, and leadership in commercial mowing solutions.

Where has the time gone?

In the last 40 years, Trimax has grown from a seven-person workshop into an international success story.

Innovation has been at the very heart of the company since it was founded by Bob Sievwright in 1981. He was looking for a way to share his revolutionary Gamma Flail design, the first high-efficiency flail available on the market. Trimax was formed from an amalgamation of local flail mower manufacturers and, with the implementation of the Gamma Flail, quickly became a mowing solutions leader in the burgeoning kiwifruit industry in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty.

In 1983 Trimax joined forces with Procut Engineering, founded by Jim McEwen, to market their low-profile rotary mowers and in 1985 purchased the company to round out the Trimax product line. With both flail and rotary mowers in their range, Trimax was ready to grow and expand into new markets.

Today Trimax operates facilities and teams in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Our flail and rotary mowers can be found maintaining turf to a high standard around the world.

Celebrate with us!

40 years of operation is quite an achievement, and we’re proud to mark this anniversary together as a global team with our Trimax family of dealers and customers.

Throughout the year we’ll share stories and insights from Trimax team members who have been with the business from the beginning. We’re excited to show you how far we’ve come and to share some exclusive previews of what’s up ahead for Trimax.

We invite you to join us as we look back on our history and as we look forward to what the next 40 years will bring. You’ll see we’ve still got some surprises up our sleeves – follow us on social media to join the celebration!

Does a higher tip speed always equal a better cut?

Does a higher tip speed always equal a better cut?

Everybody quotes blade tip speed, this is not nearly as important as spindle speed.

Blade tip speed is similar across all brands, and some brands are running tip speeds higher than required as the cleanest cut possible is only achievable within a certain speed range. Too fast and power and fuel are wasted, too slow and the grass is torn and damaged. What really matters is how many cuts or rotations the blade achieves per forward meter of travel, which is where spindle speed comes in.

Spindle speed informationFaster spindle speeds

 

Trimax mowers feature shorter blade beams that enable more spindles to be fitted across the decks for any given cutting width. This keeps the deck compact for better weight distribution and maneuverability.

To maintain the perfect tip speed for cleanly cut grass, these shorter blade beams spin at a higher rate allowing the blade to take a smaller bite (clip) of grass each rotation, ultimately increasing the number of cuts per forward meter. This increased number of cuts is essential for producing a finer cut.

The other benefit is each spindle only has to handle a small volume of grass. This allows for the most effective use of the specialised Trimax airflow design in mixing the cut grass with air for an even spread which is discharged safely and effectively over the rear roller with no windows.

To gain an even greater number of cuts per meter, Trimax offers the patented Quattro Blade Kit on selected models increasing the blades per spindle from two to four, thereby doubling the number of cuts per rotation.

As an option, Quattro can be retrofitted for when an even finer clip of grass is needed. For all fine cut and turf applications, we recommend Quattro blade carriers and your choice of blade combinations including flat and uplift options.

Talk to your Trimax Sales Representative today about the best blade combination to suit your application. You can also book a demo by clicking here, or download our catalogue by clicking here.
