A mower to rely on at all times
The PROTECTADRIVE system is integrated into the cutter bar to withstand shocks and obstacles when mowing. In the event of a violent impact against one of the discs, the shaft holding the disc shears just above the bearing thanks to a carefully dimensioned shear groove. The gearwheels are protected. The machine is back up and running quickly and at a low repair cost.
The disc bearing stations are attached by long bolts that pass through the entire cutter bar. This eliminates any risk of the mounts being torn out of the cutter bar in case of impact.
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 gear wheels in high-precision forged steel with 3 cogs engaged.
- Discs with forged and heat treated cups over the whole surface area.
- Disc skids in treated steel with the option of adding a protective layer (screw-on).
In order to lengthen the machine's service life, shock absorbers are integrated in the connection between cutter bar and chassis. The structure of the machine is less affected by impacts, especially when working at fast ground speeds.
