The "Smokey Goat Towable Topper" is professionally made in Rotorua, New Zealand. It was originally developed after recognising that many lifestyle blocks, orchards and equestrian properties do not own a tractor, yet still need to be able to maintain pasture quality for stock and keep paddocks and properties tidy. Our 1500mm topping mowers are also very popular in the Horticultural sector for controlling grass and weed growth between plant rows, next to posts or fencelines due to the moveable wheels which can be adjusted to run behind the topper.
With it's robust steel frame, "Easy-Start" Kohler engines, effective mowing performance, superior anti-scapling measures and very competitive price, keeping your lifestyle block paddocks, orchard rows tidy and large grass areas mown now becomes an easy task with the
Smokey Goat towable topping mower!

A FEW CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS...
Smokey Goat 1200mm wide triple engine topping mower, being used on lifestyle block.
"Hi Diana, Just wanted to advise that the Topper is awesome! Got it home last Saturday, had it operating an hour later and topped some paddocks, worked great and a well-made solid product, so much cheaper than a tractor/slasher as not really needed on our lifestyle block. Unfortunately my wife has now stopped me playing as I started topping her horse paddocks that she needs for them! Oh well it's all set up behind the ATV ready for the next job, thanks again."

"We are really pleased with the Smokey Goat topper. It has chewed through all of our rushes. Our neighbours (and rellies) reckon we’re making rushlage! The paddocks look so much better. With the Smokey Goat and spraying we should be able to at least control the rushes. In future will get them when young and small. A visitor saw the "Goat", admired it, asked what it was for, said it wouldn’t cut rushes. My partner said look at the paddock (a few over). "Oh wow" was the response!"

"Thanks for sending out our spunky new Smokey Goat paddock topper! Started first time and has turned Ollie and Candy’s horse paddock from messy to gorgeous! Super stoked with it, thanks so much. Now the poor abused ride-on lawn-mower can stick to what it’s actually designed for!" (See Tanya's before and after photos below).

Smokey Goat 1200mm wide triple engine topping mower, being used on small farm / lifestyle block. See customer photo after topping tall thick gorse (right).
"Chris was very impressed with the Smokey Goat Topper tonight... he took it down to the back 1 acre paddock where it's full of gorse 1.5m high – gorse is everywhere so much so that you couldn’t walk through it. Yet the topper mowed it down! Chris said sitting on the bike the gorse was taller than his head. I had to go down and look at the gorse paddock for myself. The gorse is around 600mm on the sides but he swears it was taller in the middle. As you can see it wasn’t just a couple of bushes. You can show these to anyone who is dubious as to how much these toppers can cut. Chris did the first pass on the highest setting, then the second pass on the second one up from the bottom.”
Very impressive results from the Smokey Goat Topper!
Above and Below - This was a paddock that had dock & chickweed in it. The grass had grown long, fallen over and then had a mob of 18 month steers in it who had trampled it down so alot of the grass was lying flat on the ground. These clients tried topping at the 2nd lowest setting first (which cuts at aprox 100-120mm) but it was still too high for this paddock, so they lowered the topper to the first setting (which cuts at approx 60-80cms high) and drove approx 5-7kmph.
The two pictures Above show the paddock before topping and the two pictures Below show after topping.

This paddock was topped on the 2nd from bottom setting (cuts at approx 100 - 120mm) which is often ideal for allowing good cut results while also maintaining grass recovery in summer.
