Spare parts list
Blade changing tool
Infinitely variable PLUS cutting height adjustment
The hexagonal drive shaft is set down between the drums - this facilitates removing when needed.
The mower drums are screwed on the outside - therefore removing is easy.
Overlapping cover plates
The smooth running bevel gears run submerged in oil.
The robust cast bearing housing is precision-machined using CNC machining centres.
Central adjustment axle
Precision ball bearings for the toughest of applications.
Overlapping cover plates
Spacer rings for different cutting heights
Spacer rings are utilized for different cutting heights at mowers without central cutting height adjustment.
The saucers are supplied in two parts and screwed. Simple and inexpensive changing. High-cut saucers from fine-grained steel provide additional cutting height of + 20 mm. Cutting heights up to 85 mm are possible especially for arable forage.
Blade quick-change system
Press down the spring clamp by using a knife wrench. Remove the blade and slide the new blade into place. The blade holders are screwed with the mowing plates and can be changed quick and easy. In case of natural wear the blade holders can be displaced.
Hydraulic lower linkage arm
The hydraulic lower linkage arm makes it easy for you to hitch up without having to adjust the linkage struts on the tractor. This ensures you always have the right weight alleviation and plenty of ground clearance at headlands.
Variable hitching made easy
Thanks to the adjustable mounting pins, these mowers can be hitched up to a wide range of tractor types quickly and easily. As a result you make full use of the whole mowing width.
Practical PTO shaft holder makes hitching up easier.
A handy blade box provides space for replacement blades.
The blade tool is kept on the machine.
If the mower collides with any obstacles, the cutter bar can fold back through a wide arc to the rear. The triggering force is adjustable. A hydraulic collision safety device is also available as an option.
Since the mid-80s, our mower developments have focussed on the "floating cut". Optimised ground tracking and sward conservation thanks to reduced pressure on the ground is what farmers demand on all mowers.
The EUROCAT centre pivot mounting supports the cutter bar evenly over the entire cutting width. This reduces the power input required – an enormous advantage when mowing with a conditioner. The wide +/- 22.5 degree arc of movement enables easy mowing on rough surfaces and embankments.
Hydraulic weight alleviation provides uniform ground pressure over the whole cutter bar width. The pressure of the cutter bar on the ground can be infinitely-variable adjusted depending on the condition of the ground and the conditioner or swath formers fitted. No additional filling hose is required and you can read the current pressure at the pressure gauge. In dry, hard conditions the ground pressure can be increased to stabilise the cutter bar at high driving speeds. Damp, soft conditions require a reduction in ground pressure to ensure the best ground tracking and conservation of the sward.
All drive elements are robust and large dimensioned. Two PTO shafts and a angle gear ensure reliable power transmission. Exceptional smooth running is guaranteed. A friction clutch and freewheel provide optimum protection. The gears run submerged in oil and are maintainance free
With the optional parking stands the mower can be parked in the smallest of spaces.
The cutter bar is raised using double-acting spool valves. A low transport height is achieved by folding the mower through 115°. The centre of gravity is on the tractor's centreline and the driver has a clear view to the rear in both side mirrors.
The EXTRA DRY conditioner is a joint development with the Institute of Agricultural Engineering (IMAG-DLO) in Wageningen (Holland) that started in 1997 to prove there is a better way. Your forage dries measurably faster thanks to the adjustable conditioning intensity and wide placement.
V-shaped steel tines of hardened steel guarantee a continuous flow of crop and an extended service life. The tines are mounted on rubber elements in a spiral configuration on the conditioning roller.
EXTRA DRY drying accelerator
The tine rotor propels the forage across an adjustable conditioning plate. Adjustable guide vanes distribute the flow of crop over the whole mowed width. The forage is then deposited in a uniform and airy blanket by the wide-spread hood. Adjustable swath doors can be used to form a swath.
Even more flexibility
Power is transmitted from the cutter bar gearbox to the rotor by V-belts with a spring-loaded belt tensioner. If the conditioner is not required, it can be removed.
The V-belts are easily detached for removing the conditioner.
The drive system is reliably protected against contamination.
The greasing points are located on the outside for easy access.
