The right machine for our hilly block!

Perfect machine to safely and effectively maintain unwanted vegetation on our steep slopes and around our many trees. Show details ·  1

Followup after 5 months ownership

I still rate the Razorback as an amazing little machine however let down badly by the tires. I have had no end of trouble with flat tires especially the fronts which are only 2 ply. Tiny lantana thorns easily puncture the tube and even with Slime in the tubes, they still leak. I now have had a small branch rip a jagged hole in the tire and torn the tube. Spoke with the local product rep and he has suggested solid filling the front tires so will give that a go. The rep was very responsive and helpful (thanks Jason) Show details

CMX2402 Brilliant - Premium piece of engineering worth every cent

The performance of my Razorback CMX2402 defies logic. The salesman under played its capability but first hand experience clearly demonstrates the superior functionality of this "Built for Purpose" machine.  An amazing 4WD machine with PTO driven 975mm cutter deck - hugely powerful. It cuts well on flat and undulating terrain and powers up my 45 degree gradients.
The machine is extremely capable & stable on very steep slopes. It slashes Lantana, Blackberry & Cassia with ease. Tall woody weeds pose no challenge whatsoever. The Razorback just walks through scrub, knocking every thing over and munches it up. Show details

Unreal machine

Purchased February 2023. Where I live is bush, with a lot of Black Wattle, fire love it. This machine does everything the salesman said it would. It just walks it's way through the scrub. 2 Big problems. The rear end is too low to the ground and is easily buried in soft ground and hard to get out. Next ( the biggest drawback ) who puts crappy 4 ply tyres on a go anywhere machine. It only took 15min to get a puncture. I have ride on mower with 6 ply tyres. This is a common major complaint you hear from every owner. Not good enough. Show details

Beware dangerous if rolled

This machine does a great job but should be fitted with a roll bar as standard equipment I am lucky to be alive , the front wheel clipped a large rock leaning against a tree , the rock rolled under the back wheel tipping the machine over , I have broken ribs and other injuries , I nearly died as the back of machine was upside down on my chest , I could hardly breath , the blades were still going as seat cut off switch was activated with ground pressure , I was under it for over an hour . Razorback Canycom for your customers safety please fit a roll bar and seat belt on these machines . I will be selling this machine and purchasing a remote control mower in the future Show details

It’s ability surpasses my expectations

A terrific machine with no peer. It cuts well on flat and undulating terrain. It even powers up my 40 degree gradient. Small saplings, lantana are cut with ease. Highly recommend. Show details

Never ceases to impress!!

I have 7.5 acres of moderately steep and muddy property. The Razorback is solid as a rock on the hills. I swear you would fall off the machine long before it got to the point of tipping over! It knocks over 2 metre lantana with ease, uses half the petrol my standard 23HP ride on too. It's not cheap, but it is amazingly engineered and exceptional quality. I cannot recommend the Razorback too highly! Show details

How do I drain the fuel tank? There is water in the fuel tank. The mower hasn’t been driven since water got into tank.

Hello Scott, Which model Razorback do you have?

Scott C.

It is a CMX1808

Razorback

Thanks Scott, the CMX1808 has a fuel hose running from the bottom of the tank. By disconnecting this you will be able to drain the tank just using gravity. Please feel free to contact your local Razorback dealer, or call us on 1800 088 567.

Hi I have a CMX1402 That has never missed a beat until yesterday when I noticed the blades would not fully disengage even when you turn the machine off and restart it. Also the engagement lever seems to have alot of play when off sometimes not going back to trip the sensor. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  • Capable of operating on steep angles up to 25 degrees.
  • Cutting width of 975mm or 38.4 inches.

CMX1808 and CMX2302

Points of Praise

  • The Razorback All Terrain ride-on mowers are highly effective in cutting thick, overgrown grass and shrubs on sizeable and steep slopes.
  • Operates smoothly and safely on angled land.
  • Extremely effective for heavy-duty jobs, the outstanding performance of these all-terrain mowers made the high price point worth it for reviewers.

Points to consider

  • Rocks and thorns can puncture tires and break the rotors, which incurs increased maintenance costs.
