Model DH D5000FL, D6000FL and D7000FL - Disc Mower with Flail Conditioner
From Disc Mowers
The main features of our mowers are strength, stability and performance. The flat, rounded bar encloses the rotating blades and a counter blade prevents residue build-up, guaranteeing quality fodder. For even better results the models D5000FL, D6000FL and D7000FL come with a flat conditioner which is particularly suitable for fodder plants; the rows are soft and well aired, the fodder dries evenly and quickly, resulting in high quality hay.
The 3 point hitch with swinging drawbar means the mower can adapt to any working condition: the dual movement enables the mower to adjust to the ground surface and the self adjusting compensation spring controls the cutterbar down pressure. A hydraulic cutterbar lift raises the mower from the ground by 35° and simplifies manoeuvring operations. Lifting is hydraulic. The mower does not protrude laterally, thus guaranteeing stability and safety.
The job of the conditioner is to press and split the fodder; this opens the outer waxy layer of the stems, so that the excess water flows out, thus accelerating the drying process, while maintaining the body and all the nutritional elements. Two models of conditioner are available: the conditioner with helical rubber rollers (Chevron type) where both the rollers are drive rollers due to the dual transmission, suitable for flat areas with fodder containing a higher percentage of water and therefore requiring uniform drying with a constant level of humidity, or the model with plastic flail which is more suitable for fodder crops. Both are self-cleaning with closed box transmission in an oil bath.
