McConnel’s economy-edition mid-range series combines value, performance, and reliability.

Light and fuel-efficient, the machines are robust enough to cope with a heavy workload and is equipped with surprisingly powerful 45hp hydraulics.

Offering a choice of 4.7m and 5.0m reach; the 45-series machines are suitable for both hedge-cutting and verge-mowing and offers enough power and versatility to handle tough jobs such as branch cutting and tree maintenance.

Weighing in at just 641kg, the PA4745 is light and manoeuvrable and its low power requirement ensures it is compatible with tractors of just 60hp and above.
