A 21st century reinvention of McConnel’s iconic PA93, the 55-series offers a winning combination of power, performance and value for money.

Four models of the 55 Series are available; the PA5155 with 5.1m reach, 55hp hydraulics, the PA5455 with 5.4m reach, 55hp hydraulics and the PA5555-60 with 5.5m reach and PA5755-60 with 5.7m reach and both with 60hp hydraulic system.  The later of the models comes fitted with an integrated oil cooler as standard to ensure longevity with the step up in horsepower.

All models are offered with a wide range of attachments and customisation options – increasing versatility and enabling customers to create a machine to match their precise personal requirements.


Designed for farmers, contractors and local government green maintenance teams, 55-series machines are robust and reliable with cast-iron pumps and gearboxes and high-capacity oil filters as standard.

Available with a  VFR, hy-reach and parallel arm geometry, hydraulic safety breakaway, Power Slew, and a wide range of attachments, the 55-series offers enhancements that are the envy of other mainstream mid-range Power Arms.

With a wide choice of work attachments including cutterbars, rotary heads, Multisaws and a ditch and grip cleaner, 55-series machines can tackle far more than just hedge-cutting and verge-mowing - enabling contractors to expand the services they can offer their customers.

Tackle tough tasks

55-series machines can be specced with McConnel’s heavy-duty Omega rotor and flails, or a 1.5m Multicut flailhead with heavy duty F14 flails– McConnel’s most powerful cutting tool. Either combination will make light work of the toughest clearance jobs, including hedges with three years growth.
