The heart of PÖTTINGER disc mowers is the cutter bar, proven over thousands of cuts in the field. Disc mower cutter bars are developed and built at the company's main plant in Grieskirchen – a quality product made in Austria. First-class cutting quality, low drag resistance and strength are the trademarks of these cutter bars. Engineered details guarantee you reliable operation and contribute significantly to an extended service life.
The rounded, low profile front edge lets the cutter bar glide smoothly over the ground and separates the crop tidily from the sward. The conveyor effect has been improved by the rounded conical surfaces of the mower discs. The crop flows through smoothly and uniformly, maintaining full cutting capacity in all operating conditions. Integrated paddles keep the cutter bar surface clean. PÖTTINGER guarantees trouble-free downhill mowing, even on steep slopes.
The sleek cutter bar design is only 28 cm deep, perfect for enabling the best possible ground tracking. The mower blades rotate very close to the surface of the cutter bar and the counter knife. The optimised overlap of blade paths ensures a clean and uniform mowing pattern.
Durable mower discs
The oval, low profile mower discs are made of hardened fine-grained steel. Quick-change blades make maintenance easy.
Optional feed cones
These improve the crop flow and enable swath formation.
High-strength stub shafts
The strong stub shafts are bolted to the gears and are thus easy to replace when required.
Durable, twin race tapered bearings with a theoretical bearing spacing of 60 mm are extremely stress-resistant.
Reliable power transmission
The cutterbar gear drive runs in a straight line with virtually the same sized gears. All gears are hardened and machined for smooth running and a long service life.
New gear pairs with the same diameter 39/50
Three teeth in contact – better power transmission – softer starting characteristics.
New surface on gears ensures smoother running and a reduction in noise level.
Wide skids made from hardened boron steel to resist impact and prevent the build-up of soil. Because the underside of the cutter bar is smooth with contoured skids inside and outside, it protects the sward even on tight corners.
As an option, you can fit additional wear skids to protect the underside of the cutter bar. The bolted skids can be easily changed if required.
Optional high-cut skids can be mounted to increase the cutting height from 30 to 120 mm. Their large radius and wide surface area make them especially wear resistant.
High-cut skid + 20 mm, the universal skid especially for stony soil.
High-cut skid + 40 mm, especially for whole crop.
NEW: High-cut skids for the outer pairs of skids.
The cutter bar is made from the best quality steel. The metal plate is precision laser-cut and robot-welded before machining at the state-of-the-art CNC machining centre.
The blade post is bolted to the mower disc. This can be replaced cost-effectively if required.
The counter knife is clamped in place, meaning it is also easy to replace.
Change blades quickly and easily: Press down the spring clip with the blade changing tool and replace the blade.
The blade is locked securely in place by the spring clip.
Lengthy, tough operation demands the best blade quality, which is why original PÖTTINGER blades are made from high-quality blade steel.
A handy blade box provides space for replacement blades.

Minimum weight was the main priority when designing the CLASSIC generation of front mowers. The compact construction of the sleek headstock and the implementation of lightweight pressed components are the key features of these mowers. The demand for effective suspension to optimise ground tracking has also been met in full by our NOVACAT CLASSIC.
Two powerful springs ensure a uniform ground pressure over the whole width of the cutter bar. The chain length can be used to quickly optimise the pressure of the cutter bar.
The headstock is the trademark of perfect ground tracking. The sophisticated linkage geometry brings the centre of gravity as close to the tractor as possible in all working positions. Gimbals on the cutter bar guide arms guarantee smooth freedom of movement. With a travel of +/- 8 degrees, the mower is guided accurately over each bump in the ground. Stabiliser springs inside the headstock keep the mower centred during transport.
The four outer mower discs rotate inwards in pairs. The individually adjustable swathing discs place the forage in a swath of the desired width. Additional swathing discs are available for even narrower swath placement.
The side guards are strong full-length pressed steel parts. Hydraulic folding is available if required.
The NOVACAT 351 CLASSIC joins the top end of our modern range of front-mounted mowers without conditioners. Even with this wide mower, the compact construction of the headstock places the centre of gravity very close to the tractor.
More overlap in combination with rear mowers.
No driving into standing crop while cornering.
