There's the obvious reasons:
Like a low centre of gravity and shaft drive deck– but there’s many more subtle differences that makes this mower outperform all of the competition.Things like a greater cut height range, full mechanical difflock, and Katana® swinging blades make this machine faster, easier and safer than any other machine in the market.

Shaft Drive Deck
A shaft driven deck outperforms a belt driven deck in any situation. Direct power transmission equals high blade tip speed, meaning smoother, effortless cutting – far from the slippage, breakage and burning that belts often do. A shaft driven deck also allows the Canycom to have the largest height of cut range. All the running gear is protected through the use of shear pins at both ends of the drive shaft which protect the g ear box from any damage in case of hitting solid objects.
Low Centre of Gravity
Not only is a low profile mower beneficial for mowing under trees or plantations, it allows the Canycom mower to be the safest on the market for mowing on slopes. The low height and long wheel base makes the mower exceptionally stable, virtually hugging the ground. Mow slopes of up to 30° or more!
Hybrid Hydrostatic + Mechanical Drive
Put simply, this unique hydrostatic/mechanical drive gives you all the ease of an automatic transmission, with the power, durability and safety of a mechanical gear box.
Katana ™ Blade system
Canycom's unique Katana™ blades mount easily onto the blade carrier without requiring any tools! This makes replacing the blades easier - you don t even have to get under the machine. The Katana ™ blades aren't ordinary blades either, made from extremely resilient Japanese sword steel, guaranteed to give you a long cutting life in the most extreme conditions.
Two Speed Hi/Lo Gearbox
This simple but important function allows you to have all the power, traction and mowing ability when you need it when in low range, or simply switch to Hi range for when you want to cover ground quickly.
Full Mechanical Differential Lock
In simple terms, a full mechanical diff lock means that you wont freewheel or risk losing control when on rough terrain. Too many people have been killed in New Zealand from going out of bounds with a conventional ride on which are precarious when mowing on sloping or slippery ground.
Large height of cut range
Being able to have a large cut height range is super important– allowing you to tame heavy brush easier, or leaving a neat finish on a low cut turf lawn. Having a shaft driven deck allows the Canycom to have a larger height of cut range to any other similar machines on the market. This is because other machines instead use a belt/pulley system, meaning that when the deck is raised and lowered the belt becomes angled and more prone to wear, slippage,or completely derailing. This means the height range is restricted– not an issue for the Canycom!
Super Fast Mowing
With a maximum speed of 13.8km/h and a mowing speed of almost 8km/h, a cutting height range from 0-150mm and a shaft drive deck, the Canycom brushcutter can outperform any other ride on mower or brush cutter in long grass, with a mowing speed of up to 7,300m³/h!
Two/Three Stage Braking
For maximum safety and braking performance, the Canycom incorporates both hydraulic braking as well as braking with enclosed drum shoes on the front axle. All wheel drive models also have rear axle via enclosed drum shoes. This makes sure you re never out of control on steep slopes.
Industrial Subaru Robin Engine
All Canycom mowers have true industrial horizontal shaft Subaru Robin engines with cast iron bore for longevity. This means higher performance, less problems and great backup service in New Zealand.
Adjustable debris deflectors
Both sides of the deck open up– allowing you to either side discharge or rear discharge the cut debris. This means for neater lawns you can achieve a nicer finish, or for extra thick rough material you can discharge it fast and easily to avoid blockages.Opening sides also enable easy, fast access to the underside of the deck for cleaning or accessing the blades.
Wide brush opening & nudge bar
Cutting thick grass and brush is made much easier with the nudge bar, which pushes higher material over before it is taken into the wide throat on the underside of the Canycom. At 236mm high, this opening allows for a more consistent cut quality and better handling of heavy thick material.
Easy clean deck
A special wash port on the deck allows for easy, fast cleaning of the deck underside–preventing grass build up which hinders mowing performance.
Steering column, steering wheel, backrest, seat height and seat position are all fully adjustable to your preference, making your mowing ride more comfortable and enjoyable.
