User's speech: "Manoeuvrability of the Hydro 80 is fantastic. The fact that they can fit through gates whilst cutting and collecting even in the wet is by far its best feature." Craig Stokton Managing Director Sherrat Landscapes

Ride-on mowers

Ride-on mowers

The Hydro 80 from Etesia can adapt to the conditions of the terrain, which makes it particularly versatile. Add to that its extreme compactness, flexibility of use, reinforced hydrostatic transmission and the power of its two-cylinder 16 HP Kawasaki engine, and you get a tool offering an outstanding  efficiency, which can advantageously replace three walk-behind mowers.

The e-connect version turns the Hydro 80 ride-on mower into a high tech machine: the first mower with network connectivity!

How it works

The new Hydro 80 is equipped with an RFID Badge, this allows communication between human and  Machine (Human Machine Interface). This is achieved by using an Application installed on your mobile device thus allowing you to access the relevant technical information for a specific machine.


Where applicable an operator can login to the software using their Facebook or Twitter account for convenience, however for situations where this is not practical operators can create an independent password.

Recognition and display of machines and their information in the vicinity on the application via Bluetooth®: model, serial number, machine photograph etc.
