At John Bownes Ltd we pride ourselves on working with the best in class agricultural machinery suppliers.  Our aim is to offer you the widest range of top quality machinery designed to withstand the rigors of day to day working life.  One of the suppliers we partner with is McConnel, the world’s leading manufacturer of Power Arm technology.  They offer a comprehensive range of power arms, rotary and flail mowers and cultivation machinery.  Their name is synonymous with the very best in innovation.

From humble beginnings, McConnel firmly established themselves as a leading light in the sphere of Power Arm technology.  They have been awarded over 40 major national and international accolades for their design engineering.  From their inception when they launched the first tractor-mounted hedgecutter, they have stood for quality, robust engineering and design firsts. It is hard to argue with product development that has seen them being the first to offer hi-reach arm geometry, parallel arm geometry, Variable Forward Reach and hands-free cruise control.

With eighty years of experience, McConnel’s expertise in the field of Power Arm design cannot be rivalled.  Every machine is designed using state of the art specialist software before prototypes are built and tested.  Each completed machine is then individually tested before it leaves the production centre.  There are literally thousands of customisation options meaning that a machine can be personalised to cater for every individual requirement.  In addition, a comprehensive range of genuine replacement parts is available, giving further peace of mind.  It is also good to know that the majority of their machines and components are designed, built and tested in the UK at one of their two production facilities.

In short, McConnel is the most trusted Power Arm brand in the world.  Their uncompromising research and development ensures that they offer control systems that deliver fingertip precision, multi-functional control and sophisticated yet simple software which is unique to McConnel Power Arms.

At John Bownes Ltd. we sell a range of McConnel’s class-leading machines including the MCCONNEL SR460 TRAILED FLEX- WING MOWER, ideal for professional mowing contractors and large scale farmers, the MCCONNEL TOPPER 9 and the MCCONNEL ELITE 245 FLAIL TOPPER.
