Climber 9.22

The Grillo Climber 9.22 is generally used in demanding applications on medium to large properties where 4WD-like performance is expected. Its use in commercial applications is well proven and is often used by Government departments and Shire councils for cleaning up rough, overgrown, steep areas.

Designed for challenging conditions this machine is ideal for acreage where a property owner may want to mow infrequently and when the grass is long at the time of mowing. The Climber 9.22 is ideal for absentee land owners, brush or fire break control or for mowing when the operator wants to mow rather than when the length of grass dictates a mow.

As well as being a steep gradient mower it does a superb job cutting flat areas and produces a good finish on short grass.

The Climber 9.22 has been designed to handle demanding mowing - long grass, steep gradients, as well as undulating and rough terrain. Perfect for the most testing environments where it would be impossible to take other ride on mowers, Climber 9.22 mows gradients of up to 30 degrees. Its low center of gravity and central weight distribution make it very stable and therefore very safe.

As well as steep areas, the Climber 9.22 also mows down grass, even over a metre in height, on flat areas. The extra horsepower over a Climber 9.16 model makes it perfect for applications where there is a lot of mowing to do on large acreage and the differential lock enables users to maintain traction when the ground is damp or slippery.  Grillo Climber 9.22 goes places even a tractor can't go!

The Grillo Climber 9.22 manages long grass and steep hills easily. The Climber is a unique machine because it was designed specifically for mowing on hills, slopes, paddocks and uneven terrain.  Where the use of other types of mowers and tractors is limited or unsuitable, the Climber excels.  Grillo Climber is also set apart by its high quality engineering and manufacturing. Its sturdy design and high build quality is durable and the machine stands up to tough Australian conditions. 
Once the property has been brought under control an optional mulch kit can be fitted on 9 series machines to provide a manicured finish.

Its low center of gravity enables the Grillo Climber to handle steep and undulating terrain safely and competently. The driver is positioned directly over the cutting deck and sits low in the seat. The driver’s feet can be positioned in several positions so the design of the Climber is quite different to other mowers. The results of this give more stability, control and safety for the operator. This is a safe machine for other family members who wish to mow.

Increased Traction
Climber 9.22 is a 2 wheel drive machine for maximum maneuverability and safety but provides 4WD like performance. It features differential lock which provides superior traction, allowing the user to manage any tricky areas by depressing the diff lock pedal to engage both rear wheels simultaneously.

Unlike dedicated 4WD machines Grillo Climber is highly maneuverable on both flat areas and also on hills and cutting around trees and bushes. The steering wheel features a hand knob that makes steering simple and removes the effort of using two arms to turn the steering wheel. It also allows the user to keep one arm free to safely manage either the cutting height or speed over the ground.

Peter Muller, Climber User (as posted on website Ride On Mower Report), "A brand not listed on the report is the Italian made Grillo Climber Series. I have recently bought one, at the top end, but a superb and safe machine for hill country like I have. I would recommend anyone who has difficult terrain to consider one. You get what you pay for."
