Model F220GM, F240GM and F280GM - Four Drum Mowers
From Drum Mowers
The lateral drum mowers optimise fodder collection times, thus improving production rates. In models F220, F240 and F280 the most suitable tool can be chosen according to the size of the area to be mown and individual requirements. When you need to reduce drying and haymaking times, the models F220GM, F240GM and F280GM, provided with conditioner with rubber rollers, are the best and most effective choice. The hydraulic device raises the mower vertically to 90°, providing excellent stability and safety during transport as the mower does not protrude from the profile of the tractor. The combined operation of the central hitch with dual reciprocating movement and the compensation spring allows the mower to adapt to the ground and discharge the weight onto the tractor.
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. In the 4-drum mowers, the conditioner with helical rubber rollers (Chevron type) features a central separator which gives the row a precise form and controls the fodder flow.
The side element is raised by means of hydraulic pistons, ensuring compactness during transport. During closing, the mower automatically moves approximately 30 cm towards the centre of the tractor so as not to protrude laterally.
