Cutter bar extremely reliable and stable
The cutter bar design has been conceived to handle obstacles. With the PROTECTADRIVE safety system, in case of a very violent shock between the disc and an obstacle, the shaft holding the disc shears above the housing thanks to a cleverly dimensioned shear groove. The gearwheels are protected. In less than 15 minutes, the machine is operational again and at a very low repair cost.
The housing attachment is ensured by long screws, passing through the cutter bar. Any risk of housings being ripped off in the event of shock is prevented.
High-end components reinforce the core of the cutter bar:
- Cutter bar with special double row oblique contact ball bearings.
- Large diameter gearwheels in high precision forged steel with 3 cogs engaged.
- Discs with forged and treated cups over the whole surface area.
- Disc skids in treated steel with the possibility of adding protective lining (attachment via screws).
To increase the machine's service life, rubber mounts are integrated between the cutter bar and the frame. Shocks have less impact on the machine's structure while mowing at high ground speed.
