Multi-Cut Drum Mower
"It fine-cuts hay so it dries faster in the windrow," Pearson Engineering Ltd., representatives told FARM SHOW at the recent Fieldays in Hamilton, New Zealand. The new multi-cut, drum-type mower is unique in that it has three layers of cutting blades, stacked one above the other on the two-drum mower.
Wet weather continually threatens hay crops in most areas of New Zealand so drying time is critical. The cutting discs on the new Pearson mower are adjustable to adapt to conditions and can be moved up and down to cut the hay to varying lengths.
Pto-powered by an overhead belt drive, the new mower fine cuts hay as short as 3 to 4 in. in length, yet requires about the same power to drive as a similar size conventional drum mower. The two drums are splined into driving pulleys and can float up and down independent of each other, allowing them to follow ground contour.
Available in a 5-ft., 6-in cutting width, the new mower sells for about $3,500.
