‘dedicated to offer

the best mowing systems

for maintaining large area turf-grass’

Built from experience

The Eco Clipper® Mowing System evolved from the mowing system that was originally developed in the nineties on the turfgrass farm of the Leijenaar family in the Netherlands and was launched in 2002. The electrically driven 10m wide rotary mower back at the time was a revolution in the turfgrass industry. Till 2008 the different models of this rotary mower as well as a 10,7 m wide electrically driven cylinder mower have been developed and marketed by Leijenaar Products BV.

After the ending of Leijenaar Products BV Syb Leijenaar focused on mechatronic product development services and consulting in Leijenaar Solutions.

Start of Eco Clipper

From the market came requests for upgrading 15 year old electrically driven rotary mowers and a demand for wider and improved versions. With the experience of many years of use in many different countries a new line of electric mowers was introduced in 2018 with the name Eco Clipper.

The focus is on clean cutting results in all weather conditions, improved efficiency (at least 20% more fuel efficient), easy maintenance and repairs and low cost of ownership. In 2019 the Eco Clipper range has been succesfully introduced to turfgrass farms across Europe and was extended in 2020 with the introduction of the 14,11 meter wide Eco Clipper RM14 butterfly mower and Eco Clipper TM14 tri-deck mower.

After trying different lawn mowers of various brands we have chosen Eco Clipper front mower model EC-FM6 and we are satisfied with the choice made.

We found these characteristics:
Having the generator positioned above the lawnmower, it is easy to attach and detach the mower from the tractor
When the mowing decks are raised, it is easy to maintain, replace or sharpen the blades and are easy to clean.
Since there is an electric motor for each blade, we have no problems with replacing belts, wear and greasing of cardan shafts. The mower makes little noise.
We found a very professional cut with excellent performance on cutting speed.

We have been using this Eco Clipper RM10 since July 2019. It replaced our old Green Clipper 5 and we see a lot of benefits and improvements on this new machine.

As our new Eco Clipper is a combination mower (both front- and rear mounted) it is more compact compared to the towed GC 5. Using it in the field is like driving a regular garden mower. With our setup, we can use only the front mower with the rear mower folded up. This gives many possibilities to change the driving patterns, and it is easy to drive close to the corners and edges.

This new mower has the same width as the old one, but it requires less power. This makes it possible to drive at lower rpms and we do not have to change gear as often in hilly terrain. In addition, the noise level is better. For an optimum operation of the mower, we keep 1400 rpms on the tractor. As a maximum, we have done 22 km/h during mowing, but normally we keep between 12 – 15 km/h. This is when the length of the grass is ready for mowing.

The new flexible-decks make a complete different mowing result compared to the old fixed decks. Now we have virtually no scalping, just a nice green cut.

The Eco Clipper has fewer covers, it is easier to clean and has a lower weight. Usually we clean the upper side with an air blower and a high-pressure washer on the underside.

On our search for a better mower, we came up with electric mowing again. Fast, economical and maintenance-friendly mowing! Syb has supplied this as the widest Eco Clipper in the market in 2019 and we have mowed it to full satisfaction last season! With the position of the folded decks, the blades can be replaced quickly and easily.In addition, Syb has also taken into account the prevention of grass clippings sticking to the bottom of the decks. With the special / plastic covers this remains limited and otherwise it is easy to clean. A nice extra is that our 12 m version requires just as much power as our old 10 m version. Very pleasant on the pump! The Eco Clipper is uncomplicated, compact and relatively light, so you can ride the fields faster! Class! Mowing is fun again!

Dear Syb,
We are happy with the fact that after 10 years, the technology of the GC continues. The knowledge and expertise about this machine is back. There is no better / cheaper mower than a GC in terms of efficiency and maintenance costs. The mower that we now use with the new simple control system is a big improvement, no malfunctions. The much lighter cutting decks with the more efficient motors on them are much more flexible than the old cutting units. The material used is easy to order. If we want to expand in cutting capacity it will definitely become an Eco Clipper.
