Canycom UK (exclusive importer ICB Plant & Machinery Ltd) are very pleased to announce that Essex based, plant hire and sales company, Dale Hire Centres, have taken delivery of seven new Canycom “Samurai” extreme brushcutters for hire customers to use, from their five depots in Essex.

Dale Hire Centres first saw the Canycom “Samurai” extreme brushcutters at last year’s Saltex show and were very impressed with the Japanese build quality, in particular the shaft driven deck and the strength of the deck.

Dale Hire Centres Director, Gordon Rogers, said,

“We needed to replace our fleet of brushcutters so we invited our current ride-on brushcutter supplier and Canycom to demonstrate their models to us under very challenging conditions. We were very impressed with how well the Canycom performed, but added to that, the simple but unique engineering advantages of the shaft drive and overall build quality of the “Samurai” were the reasons we changed over to them”.

Dale Hire Centres are a quality assured company, with five branches within Essex: Braintree, Chelmsford, Halstead, Witham and the head office at Maldon.  Dale Hire Centres are a plant hire and sales organisation to builders, contractors, industry and DIY.

For some time now, Hereford soft fruit grower, Freshfields, has been looking for an easier, more economical and less labour-intensive way to cut the grass under their table top strawberries.

Having tried to keep the grass at a manageable height using strimmers, pedestrian mowers and ride-on mowers, Freshfields have now finally found the perfect machine for the job – The Canycom Samurai ride on Brushcutter.

Hand-built in Japan, this extremely strong Canycom brushcutter fits the bill perfectly, as it can move with ease between the rows of metal supports for the strawberry troughs.

Farm Manager, James White, said,

“This brushcutter is incredibly strong. Seeing just what it can cut and the speed it can cut it, is so impressive. The Canycom Samurai enables us to do twice as much as we could with our previous mowers and with just one man.  Not only does this machine do a fantastic job, but it has significantly cut our costs for grass cutting, so the economic benefits for Freshfields in having the Canycom are substantial and the ability to control grass more effectively has reduced disease pressures considerably.”
