McConnel was the first company in the world to launch a tractor-mounted hedgecutter and has since led the way in innovation throughout its 80-year history. They also pioneered parallel arm geometry, hi-reach arm geometry, Variable Forward Reach and hands-free cruise control.
Launched in 1935, the company has grown from a small shed in Martley, Worcestershire to a world-leader in green-maintenance, remote control, and cultivation technology. All McConnel technology is precision-engineered at the company's production facility in Ludlow, Shropshire, where the machines are designed, built and tested. The vast majority of components are created in-house and every single machine is subjected to a rigorous testing programme before being released to customers base in over 40 countries worldwide.
