On roll-out, it passed a ride-on grass mower which was travelling eastwards along the runway approximately 18.5 metres (m) to the right of the centre-line. The driver of the mower was unaware that an aircraft was arriving until he heard it on the runway behind him. Prior to the incident, ATC was informed that all grass-cutting equipment had vacated the field.
