Head rotation - the key to flexible hedge cutting
Ryetec sidearms have the head fitted at one end of the head (MP) or behind the head (SL). This feature allows the flail head to rotate up to 246° to cut close to the tractor in the vertical position in narrow lanes and allow the machine to level top very high hedges, whereas machines designed primarily for grass cutting have the arm mounted on top of the flail giving limiting the head angle to a maximum of 180°.

The SL420 with arm mounted behind the head. This makes it capable of a class leading level topping height of 3.4m (11' 4"), ie measurement 'D' on the table below.

Counter balance oil tank
The MP and SL models (not available on SL420H) feature a unique sliding counter balance oil tank for increased stability on compact tractors when using full reach.

With the tank IN, the machines can fold and often operate within the width of the tractor which means providing the tractor can negotiate tight access areas the Ryetec side arm can follow.

With the tank OUT, Once access is gained and the machine is operating in areas where full reach is required the tank can be positioned in the OUT position, vastly improving stability of even small tractors thanks to the combined weight of the machines hydraulic oil and steel tank and frame nearly 100kg is moved 340mm (14") out to make the Ryetec compact side arms more stable than any comparable reach machine on the same sized tractor, or in some cases allowing the use of larger reach machines on smaller tractors.

Mini Park & Super Light Models

* Tractor weight indicated can include ballast.

Reversible tractors & Front mounting

If you operate a reversible tractor or have front linkage then the SL 320 and 420 can easily be reversed thanks to the bolt on lower linkage points and dual top link bracket. The twin independant oil pumps which mount on the tractor and not on the machine are simply passed from front to back, further improving the appeal of these versatile machines.
