Bahia 2 MKHE 3

User's speech:“The MKHE is probably the best machine we’ve purchased. It cut mowing down compared to push mowers and speeded up what our teams can do, allowing them to do other jobs”. We like the fact that we have one machine that can do different jobs.” David Ramsden, Contract Supervisor Places for People
