Vicon had upgraded versions of its best-selling mower-conditioners working on its demo plot.  While the firm’s trademark tri-blade mower beds remain the same as before, the lightweight 687N triple has had its steel-bladed conditioner replaced by a nylon-tined version to reduce the weight loading on the tractor. The set-up has been kept simple with centre-mounting to provide decent contour following for models that can stretch to 10.60m working widths.  For those who want to take it up another level in that department, the company had a 3.20m + 3.20m front/rear combination working with what it describes as QuattroLink race-car type suspension – the so-called ‘ultimate’ for cutting undulating ground.
