The Grillo Climber 7 Series range can safely climb slopes and is very efficient in maintaining overgrown, neglected areas, agricultural areas and lawns. The extreme maneuverability, smooth steering and speed enable the machine to work quickly and efficiently while remaining simple and easy to control.
If a rougher application is needed, then the heavier nine series models may be a better fit such as the 9.18 or 9.22 climbers.
The single-blade cutter deck has a cutting width of 34″ (85 cm) and a quality built Briggs and Stratton 18HP V-Twin cylinder engine. With plenty of engine power, travelling up and down steep slopes is easy – even while mowing long grass.
The Climber 7.18 has a hydrostatic gearbox which uses hydraulic oil to provide the motive link between the engine and the wheels – all controlled by a simple hand lever.
The 7.18 has dependable front drum brakes not available on other machines, this allows the operator to brake when mowing downhill and increases safety in case of emergency stopping.
Differential locking increases traction by engaging both drive wheels simultaneously when slipping occurs. This allows the Climber to mow in dry or slippery conditions and cover rough ground where other mowers struggle.
