High-Capacity, High-Strength Design
A bolted 4 mm thick sheet metal lining inside the hood minimizes wear and provides additional protection against foreign objects.
The skids, combined with the roller, protect the side walls, improve the machine’s stability, and provide additional guidance to better follow irregular ground.
Suited to Match Your Needs
Fixed Two-Position or Hydraulic Sliding Offset Hitch
The fixed two-position hitch allows operation behind, or offset at 11”-18” to the right. The hydraulic sliding offset hitch allows on-the-go offset of the machine for mowing around obstacles.
Articulated and Universal Knives
The articulated and universal knives feature a special self-sharpening design with a “scoop” that lifts and cuts grass. (Other knives are available for mowing in rocky or irregular conditions.)
Suited for Intensive Work
Rear Roller or Wheels
For intensive work, the roller has removable ends and is fitted with reinforced roller bearings for lower maintenance and replacement costs. The 6” diameter roller gives full width, adjustable height control. Complete with scraper to maintain accurate cutting height. It also provides good residue/soil contact with even ground pressure across the width of the machine.
Semi-pivoting action from optional pneumatic wheels allow use without lifting on corners. Adjustable in height (and spacing when attached to support bar), wheels are a great choice for use in row-crop applications and for rolling terrain.
