- Model FX742 - Rotary Cutter



2’ (12.8m) cutting width makes long days short again. Use 1 cutter where traditionally 2 or 3 cutters were needed. Cover more ground & reduce the number of tractors and fuel costs. Unique 5plex design flexibility allows for a 118” (3m) transport width. Available with stump jumpers for pasture and grass maintenance or with Schulte’s fixed knife and baffle technology for mulching crop residue such as straw, corn or cotton stalks.

Unmatched reliability with a premium Bondioli & Pavesi SFT drive & gearbox system. Size 10 main CV with an over running clutch provides worry free shut downs. Fully compatible for all row crop cutting in 30”, 32”, 38”, 40” and one metre row spacing. A parallel solid tongue hitch maintains even load on the tractor draw bar. Full rubber grommet suspension across the entire unit reduces shock loading and maintains even cutting, even in the roughest of conditions. Unique driveline arrangement allows for independent clutch protection for each down rotor. A continuously welded 10 gauge domed deck adds strength and durability.
