Flat Sided Drums

The flat sides of the drums are the key to moving cut crop off the drums and through the machine with minimal risk of blockage. The drum and drum skirt are separate detachable parts, which reduces repair costs and downtime.

Rotating Skids

Using the special tool provided with the machine, you can easily push the blade holder down and replace the Fast-Fit® blades. This is a proven, quick and efficient system with no additional tools required.

Safety and Reliability When You Need It

PZ_Breakaway.jpg

Safety Breakaway System

Upon encountering an obstacle, the breakaway releases and the mower unit pivots back to protect the mower. The breakaway is easily reset by reversing the tractor and returning the mower to the working position.

Flotation Spring

A flotation spring reduces the weight of the mower unit on the ground to improve mower floatation and terrain following.
