Paddock Topper Design
The RM150 Rotary Paddock Topper by Chapman Machinery is a self-powered machine designed to be towed behind and ATV, UTV or even a 4×4, with the 1.5m cutting width ensuring you maintain the field quickly and easily. Flotation tyres are fitted as standard to minimise ground compaction and ensure smooth travel over rough paddocks. Designed and built in Great Britain, the RM150 Paddock Mower is the ultimate paddock & parkway maintenance tool, which will last for years of service. Should anything go wrong or replacements wearing parts be required, our UK base ensures unparalleled parts availability & support.
The simple design of the ATV topper ensures a low centre of gravity for stability, and allows cutting beneath overhanging trees & branches when offset from the towing vehicle. A multi-way offsetable drawbar makes for easy cutting of verges & field boundaries. A choice of engine options are available, from the base 13.5hp Briggs & Stratton petrol, to high-quality 16hp Honda GXV530 V-twin engines for larger areas and a faster forward speed. Furthermore, if you have specific requirements from your machine, we can source a range of powerplants & accessories from manufacturers such as Briggs & Stratton, Honda, Lombardini & Kohler to tailor the product to your specific requirements & budget constraints.
The rear deflector skirt ensures an even spread of cut material, whilst preventing foreign objects being ejected towards buildings or animals in the vicinity. The three point adjustment means the rear deflector can be set for both heavy weed cutting and lawn maintenance. The optional rear roller in place of the deflector skirt gives that professional striped finish whilst preventing scalping and helping to smooth rough paddocks.
Fitted with a centrifugal clutch as standard, the RM150 starts easier and runs smoother than it’s competitors – a real boon if using a recoil start variant. Higher power units such as the Honda GXV530 16hp V-Twin come with electric start as standard, with remote engine controls for ease of use in the field.
