Perfect ground contour following
The articulated cutting unit follows ground contours with maximum accuracy, even when mowing banks or ditches.
The mower unit's suspension system is equipped with a spring, which adapts the cutter bar floatation to field undulations.
On the GMD 100 series models, the lift and suspension system allows both the cutter bar and the inner skid to be raised off the ground using only the mower’s hydraulic cylinder. The tractor’s 3-point hitch stays at the same pre-set height. A hydraulic limiter gently stops the mower unit lifting when crossing swaths. This is a great advantage when working on slopes.
The distance between the cutter bar and the tractor's rear wheels is very short. This enables the cutter bar to react quickly to changes in the field and ensures a uniform cutting height.
The discs are specially designed to clear forage to the rear of the mower quickly to prevent grass from being cut again.
On the GMD 355 model, the residual ground pressure of the mowing unit is controlled by a hydraulic cylinder linked to an accumulator.
