Navigating the complexities of transporting oversized equipment like  farm mowers can be a hard task. Atlantic Project Cargo offers expertise in handling and moving of agricultural machinery, including mowers.

WHAT IS A FARM MOWER?

A farm mower is a piece of agricultural equipment designed for cutting and harvesting grass, crops, or other vegetation on a farm or agricultural field. Mowers are an essential tool for farmers and agricultural workers because they help maintain and manage the growth of crops and forage, keeping fields tidy and facilitating the production of feed for livestock.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FARM MOWERS?

Let’s have a look at common types of farm mowers:

  • Rotary. Versatile and convenient machines used for cutting grass and weeds; 
  • Flail. Ideal for rough or overgrown areas; 
  • Sickle Bar. Designed for cutting hay or tall grass; 
  • Disc. Ideal for cutting hay and forage crops;
  • Zero-Turn. Used for cutting large lawns and fields. They have a turning radius of virtually zero degrees, making them highly maneuverable;
  • Self-Propelled. Have engine and wheels for mobility. This type is more common for lawn mowers but can also be used for smaller-scale farming and gardening.

MOVING A MOWER ACROSS THE COUNTRY

Transportation of heavy cargo, heavy equipment, and industrial mowers from state to state or across the country employs various methods, including:

  • Railway Transport
    Budget was to move bulky machinery across vast distances without urgent deadlines.
  • Road Shipping Methods
    • Flatbed Trailers: Commonly used for large machinery, ensuring secure anchoring;
    Semi-Trucks: Suitable for medium-sized machinery with route flexibility;
    RGNs (Removable Gooseneck): Ideal for tall machinery with a detachable front;
    Lowboy and Gooseneck Trailers: Suitable for moving tall and heavy machinery.
    “Oversize load” signs and security vehicles are common for transporting oversized equipment.

 

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING OF A MOWER

International shipping of heavy machinery and cargo requires a thorough strategy to navigate the complex issues associated with international logistics, including compliance with international shipping regulations, customs procedures, and logistics management across vast global distances.

Atlantic Project Cargo offers clients expertise in both ocean freight and air freight:

  • Ocean Freight
    • RoRo (Roll-on/Roll-off): Cost-efficient for wheeled cargo;
    Flat Rack Shipping: Utilizes open-sided flat rack containers for oversized machinery;
    Container Shipping: Suitable for smaller machinery or components;
    LoLo (Lift-on/Lift-off): Utilizes cranes for non-drivable items.
  • Air Freight
    While being a more expensive alternative to ocean shipping, air freight is a viable option for the time-sensitive shipment of heavy and oversized cargo.

FACTORS AFFECTING THE COST OF MOWER SHIPPING

Among the factors that affect the price of the mower shipping are:

  • The weight and dimensions of the equipment significantly affect the price;
  • The transportation distance also factors in, with longer distances have higher costs;
  • The choice of transportation method, whether by land, sea, or air, can impact the cost;
  • Import and export duties, taxes, and insurance also affect shipping costs.
