Climber 7.16 provides safety on slopes and mows down long grass on Hunter Valley B&B

Here’s a Climber story from Garry O’Dell at Sunrise B&B, Brunkerville NSW.  Garry uses a Climber 7.16 to maintain the grounds at his 4.5 star bed and breakfast.  Sunrise B&B is beautifully landscaped and nestled against the stunning Watagan Mountains, at the southern end of the Hunter Valley, minutes from Lake Macquarie and a short drive to the Hunter vineyards

Here’s Garry’s testimonial…

"Before we bought the Climber 7.16 we were using a John Deere 110 ride on to mow several steeper batters around the rural home sites which are grassed.  The slope of the terrain and heavy dew often made using the John Deere difficult, and possibly susceptible to rolling over. Because of these challenges we embarked on an extensive internet search.  This search led us to believe that the Grillo Climber would be the solution to our problem.  Talking to the Grillo stocking dealer confirmed it and we bought our Climber 7.16 sight unseen several years ago from Coffs Harbour Stihl Shop. 




We have been using the Climber 7.16 to mow the grassed hills as well as breaking in previously unmown areas.  As you can see from the photos we had really high kikuyu grass and the very tough baldy grass as the property had not been maintained for more than 20 years.




After seeing the Climber’s ability to tackle thick and heavy grasses and regrowth, we decided to cut a walking track down though our creek area. It is about 700 meters in length. This helps with access for weed control. As well as the mowing mentioned above, the Climbers excellent slashing ability also enables us to use it to supplement our 27HP Kubota slasher, as it fits into tight areas where the slasher cannot get to.

We have been very impressed with the Grillo Climber 7.16.  In particular, the strength of the frame and general componentry has surpassed our expectations.  Both Carol and I use the Grillo and would not hesitate in recommending the Grillo Climber range to others who are considering it".
