The new Bomford boom mowers
The new Bomford boom mowers.
We have been a distributor for Bomford Turner for 40 years and that association has brought many advantages and innovations to boom mowers.
As we are our own biggest customer with the largest fleet of privately owned boom mowers in California and maybe the whole western United States we know what works for us.
Bomford has always listened to our suggestions and ideas and we now believe that we have the best boom mower that money can buy.
The reasons why we chose Bomford in the first place was because of their history.
Their first boom mowers were not even known as boom mowers. They were known as Hedgecutters.
In England there are century old hedges lining farmers’ fields which had to be trimmed on a regular basis.
In the old days this was done by hand but as labor costs increased it became necessary for a mechanical alternative.
And Bomfords were a leader in developing a method of mechanically cutting hedges.
So why is this significant?
Hedges are usually comprised of thick, dense vegetation often hardwood which required a tough machine.
So when you start off with a machine capable of mowing thick branches of hardwood you have a machine that can handle the weeds on California roadsides.
Other manufactures that had developed flail mowers for golf courses and parks simply did not have the history or expertize to make a boom mower to stand up to the rough conditions that roadsides present.
With serious improvements to an already fine boom mower including new bearing design, new belt adjustment and large diameter flail bolts make the Bomford boom mower the worlds best.
