Countax launches Williams F1 Lawnmower

British ride-on lawnmower manufacturer, Countax Ltd., have launched a new Williams Formula One Team model at this years' Chelsea Flower Show. The new Williams FW-4WD is equipped with a 16hp twin cylinder engine, and with 4WD capability, this new mower has been designed to cut and collect grass on slopes up to 30, and in marshy areas of the garden where greater traction is required.

The four wheel drive `4TRAC' technology has been developed by Countax specifically for its ride-on lawnmowers, with a unique ability to increase and decrease the turning speed of the front wheels to eliminate scuffing.4TRAC offers ultimate scuff-free slope performance for the perfect lawn. A unique Countax built-in safety feature, the Electronic Slope Alert, sounds an alarm to warn the operator before reaching an incline too great for safe mowing.

The Williams FW-4WD sports the latest team colours and is fitted with a 107cm/42" cutter deck as standard, however, alternative cutter decks are available including 97cm/38" mulching deck, and for really tough areas, the 92cm/36" high grass mulching deck will tame any paddock, scrubland or high grass area. Dense weeds, nettles and brambles can all be mulched into small particles, and large areas can be cleared very quickly

All Countax tractors feature the unique Operating Management System, with microprocessor control, which keeps the operator fully informed with a dashboard display of functions, including indication of 4WD engaged and correct RPM for optimum performance. The Williams FW-4WD has the added benefit of electric deck lift, allowing the operator to adjust the cutting height with the touch of a button.

The new Williams FW-4WD ride on mower comes with a complimentary cover and security wheel clamp and is available from all Countax dealers, SRP 5245 lbs inc vat, 107cm/42" cutter deck and powered grass collector.

Why Mosley’s legacy amounts to far more than tabloid rumour

The newspapers, naturally, lingered over Max Mosley’s tainted family history and niche sexual practices. But this is to trivialise the legacy of a big beast of motor racing politics. Stuart Codling weighs the life of a man whose work for safety on both road and track has saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but whose penchant for cruelty remains problematic and polarising.
