M&W - Model HC501, HC601, HC701, HC801 - Hay Clipper
The HC series is available in four models with mowing widths of 82', 95', 112', and 124'. The cutterbar is designed for easy removal of the disc spindle shaft and gear module for quick, low cost repairs, if needed. Durability is increased with the addition of an extra long stiffener on the backside of the bar to help resist twisting or bending. The discs are protected on the leading edge by replaceable alloy steel rock guards and feature an anti-wrap seal protector to reduce the risk of damage to the bearing seal. In most cases, the mower can be folded into the narrow 68' transport width without having to fold the curtain support back.
The pivot plate bearing area between the gearbox and the mainframe is more than double when compared to some competitive models for longer wear life. A clean smooth cut is provided by the large, reversible blades cutting at a blade tip speed of 16,148 FPM. A fully-shielded driveline and drive belts, along with a heavy-duty safety curtain are standard for operator safety.
