The Highway 3 features the most advanced control systems yet seen in a Ransomes mower, perhaps any commercial mower and, because of this, many of the traditional gauges have been replaced with a single, multi-functional screen.

The instrument panel contains switches that operate the parking brake, starter key, cutting unit engagement, backlap/mower reverse and hazard warning lights, if fitted.

This provides all the information required for safe operation including: warning lights, fuel gauge, hour meter,subsequent displays contain information on oil and water temperatures, oil pressure, blocked filters and various other warnings.

When a service is due an indicator displays the time left before the service and provides a list of the service items and parts required to complete the job. Any faults will be logged and can be retrieved later.
