Machinery profile: The Dennis Razor Ultra 560

By Alistair July 28, 2021 07:18 Updated

The Dennis Razor Ultra 560’s development was fine-tuned using feedback from greenkeepers following ‘out in the field tests’ and was the first product which utilised the company’s CAD system back in 2009. The mower has been designed for a high quality cut on greens and tees with its eleven-blade dedicated cutting cylinder offering a 560mm (22in) cut width.

Continual advances in design technology play a key role in the company’s ongoing product strategy, helping them to get high quality products to the market quicker with a consistently high finish – something that Dennis has become renowned for.

The Dennis Razor Ultra 560 incorporates many key features including an 11 bladed cutting cylinder, ultra short wheelbase for undulating surfaces, tungsten tipped groomer, compact handle design for extra manoeuvrability, click height adjusters and stub free transport wheels for easy transport from site to site.

For increased durability the mower has high impact resistant acrylic guards, and offering extra user protection, the stub shafts have been designed within the side guards as the mower features a quick release powered transport wheel kit with kick stand.

As ever the operator is high on Dennis’s list of priorities, with easy adjustment of cut height using the ‘click adjust’ system, while the proven easy start Honda Q9 engine offers low noise, low vibration technology. The Razor Ultra 560 is an extremely versatile mower and will provide a top quality finish on a variety of surfaces and will be of particular interest to greenkeepers maintaining golf greens & tees to a high standard.

“We had the Razor on demo and were instantly impressed,” said deputy head greenkeeper and mechanic Michael Dickson from Mapperley Golf Club. “The members loved it and they could instantly tell which green it had been demonstrated on. Even when the treasurer came out, he saw the quality of cut and said ‘right, we’re having them now.’

“The other mowers we tried just felt very heavy and more difficult to manoeuvre in comparison to the Razor. It was the best option by far.”

The Dennis Razor encompasses the simple ‘no tools required’ click height adjusters for quick and easy operation, a feature which particularly struck a chord with Michael and his team.

“I don’t like machines with too many gizmos – I like one that is simple, straight forward to use and does the job which it is supposed to do. We’ve been using the Razors for a year now and they have been fantastic.

“In my opinion the best features on the Razor are that they are reliable, incredibly well built and easy to use. They keep the weight off the greens in winter and the cut that it offers in terms of presentation is fantastic. Since we’ve been using the Razor the greens have been a different quality.”

Also available is the superbly balanced, easy to manoeuvre Dennis Razor fine turf mower, which is a similar model to the Razor Ultra 560, but comes without the tungsten tipped groomer. An 11 bladed cutting cylinder ensures an ultra-fine finish and has an ultra-short wheelbase for undulating surfaces. The machine also encompasses the simple ‘no tools required’ click height adjustors and the low noise. This machine is also available with 7 bladed cutting cylinder.
