Easy Drive System


An innovative hands-free cruise control verge mowing system that increases working speeds from 4km/h up to 18km/h, McConnel's award-winning Easy Drive System (EDS) delivers greater productivity, reduces fatigue and boosts safety.

Sensors read the contours of the ground ahead, reacting up to 30 times a second to changing conditions and enabling the system to automatically adjust the position of the flailhead. This significantly reduces the amount of driver input required and aids comfort and accuracy.

EDS is an essential tool for verge and highway mowing contractors, allowing operators to work harder, smarter and faster.
