Model GF1 - Sickle Bar
From Sickle Bars
The Grillo GF1 is a perfectly balanced sickle bar; the engine and the P.T.O are positioned in such way to obtain an ideal ground clearance for mowing on slopes. The centre of gravity was designed to make the GF1 manoeuvrable and safe, even in the most demanding work conditions. Grillo GF1 has single-speed, the gear is ideal for mowing. It is available either with a Robin Subaru EX17 OHC or Kohler Lombardini SH265 OHV petrol engines which are of the latest generation and appropriate for mowing in all conditions. The compact size makes the GF1 a versatile, easily to transport machine which is ideal for mowing small areas. The two available cutter bars ensure mowing any kind of grass and, apart from that, by means of a practical quick coupling, you can connect the 50 cm rotary cutter and the orientable 80 cm front blade.
The standard cutter bar is the central model of 86 cm and has a mulch cut mode; the movement is made by using an eccentric flywheel with ball bearings. It is ideal for the mowing of all type of grass and can be used in rustic areas, fruit orchards or to obtain grass for animal feed.
The cutter bar’s teeth are made of special heat treated steel. The transmission is equipped with a safety clutch that engages as soon as unseen object should block the blade; so damages to the teeth or blade sections will be avoided. The blade pressers have a special design and are made of flexible material ensuring constant contact between blade and teeth.
