Essex Farmer Strikes it Lucky with a Countax

Countax congratulate Christopher Hawkins of Southminster, Essex on winning a brand new Countax C60 garden tractor.

Christopher had previously owned a Countax and had been very happy with its performance. But, he finally had to retire his machine after 15 years of service. He entered the free prize draw in the hope of winning a new one and was amazed when he succeeded!

Mr Hawkins recollects the phone call he received from Countax notifying him that he had won the garden tractor. “I was ecstatic when I found out I had won the Countax C60. I enter competitions all the time but I have never won anything before. I’m hoping this is just the start of my winning streak!”

Christopher’s wife, Wendy also attended the prize giving. She said, “I’ll be using the Countax around our farm to cut paths along the edges of the fields. I’ll also use it for cutting the lawn and collecting the clippings. Although, by the look on my husband’s face, I’ll be lucky to get behind the wheel when it arrives home!’

The prize was presented by David Sturges, Managing Director of Countax and Gavin Bingham-Wallis, Managing Director of Grasshopper (Horticultural) Ltd.

Introducing the ALL NEW Countax C Series

The new C Series is a garden tractor built to professional standards that provides the best quality of cut without compromising your weekend.

Time is precious. Mowing the lawn, especially in a large garden can be more than just a chore. Your hard-earned weekend can quickly disappear into an endless trek around the garden, interrupted by the occasional pit stop to unclog wet clippings stuck inside the collector and cutter deck. Try to mow faster and the
problem gets worse.

The C Series works differently. It has a powered cut and collect system which allows you to mow your lawn faster but without compromising the quality of cut. The newly designed ‘XRD’ cutter deck uses contra-rotating blades which cut the grass before throwing the clippings into the path of a powered grass collector. Driven by the tractor’s engine, the collector brushes the clippings from the lawn into a large 300 litre hopper. An integrated lawn roller neatly stripes the lawn at the same time. A C Series cuts shorter, collects fully and won’t clog – even when the grass is wet.
