Hy-Reach Super-E

The 1st hedgecutter to feature an electric control system with electric rotor engagement, a fully independent hydraulic system and Parallel Arm Geometry.

This McConnel Hy-Reach Super E and Ford 4000 have been paired together since they were new in 1974. Owned by Mr Peter Martin of Bitterly, Shropshire, the combination is still in full active service today cutting more than 500 acres of hedges.
