Optimum weight balance along the whole mower width.
High range of inclination (to 24°) enables work on uneven or steep terrain.
Drive from central intersecting axis gear to cutterbar gearbox is transmitted by PTO shaft with friction clutch, which protects the cutterbar against damage.
Putting the mower into transport, working position and taking turns over swaths by means of mower's hydraulic cylinder.
KDTC mowers have the same hydraulic safety breakaway device as in tw-sided mowers. It protects mower against hitting small obstacles. In the event of hitting the immovable obstacle the cutterbar folds back about 30 degrees and at the same time rises about 70 cm. After that, the cutterbar automatically comes back to working position.
Heavy Duty cutterbar has been designed in conformity with most recent recommendations of livestock specialists. According to them, mowed grass should not be cut too low, because it has tot much fibre. Synthesis of raw fibre is increased at the cost of easily soluble and available saccharides. Low mowing causes slower turf re-growing and has influence on crops of the next cut. When the high grass prevails, first and the second cut should be mowed at the height level 6-7 cm, but when the grass grows low - at the height level - 5 cm. The last cut should be mowed a little bit higher - 7-8 cm above the ground.
Quick and easy knife replacement with mounting lever in standard equipment is the main advantage of Heavy Duty cutterbar.
Bevel gears in cutterbar are protected against damage by simple design solution. Picture depicts disc module, which in case of very strong hit cuts off the 10 x 8 mm key. Replacing the module is enough - there is no need repairing the whole cutterbar.
In 2007 season the operators tested new generation knives with the highest quality signed BRZW, which are hardened through up to 50 Hrc and comply with EN norm.
Main advantages of new generation Heavy Duty cutterbar : 1. cutterbar has the strongest and at the same time very durable bearings (class - 6307 2RS) when compared to leading european manufacturers. 2. Hardened discs and sliding skids. 3. Easily replaceable knife holder pins. 4. Lower disc hub made of very durable steel. 5. Easily replaceable sliding skids (only two bolts to unscrew). 6. Perfect cut from 5 to 7,5 cm.
