The extremely reliable 100 series cutter bar
The cutter bar has been designed to cope well with obstacles. Being equipped with the PROTECTADRIVE safety system, in the event of a violent impact between a disc and an obstacle, the shaft holding the disc can shear just above the bearing thanks to a calculated shear groove. Therefore gearwheels are protected. In less than 15 minutes, the machine can be back up and running at a low repair cost. Top-of-the-range components strengthen the centrepiece of the cutter bar:
- Special disc bearing station with a double row of angular contact ball bearings.
- Large diameter gearwheels made from high precision forged steel with 3 cogs engaged.
- Specific design of gearboxes, which prevents any stress on the attachment screws.
- Knife attachment in forged steel cup. Fully heat treated discs to reduce wear.
