Lundell Unveils Swing Tongue Rotary Mower
The new "swing tongue" attaches to the front of the machine and is controlled by the operator right from the tractor's seat. Simply by flipping a hydraulic valve, he can windrow or mow from either the right or left side and straddle the windrow on the return across the field, eliminating having to drive on the crop.
The new front-mount "swing tongue" is available on all Lundell 12 and 14 ft. rotary mowers built since 1967.
Vern Lundell, president of Lundell Mfg., notes that regardless of how sharp the turn, the pto speed remains constant. What's more, the heavyduty hitch is spring-loaded and free-floating to let the "swingtongue" mower float in rough terrain. The drive line is equipped with a pto-assembly on each end of the center drive shaft, and is centered over 2 hitch pins to eliminate vibration on turning.
With the new "swing tongue" feature, Lundell rotary mowers are extremely versatile for mowing or swathing. For other jobs, such as shredding stalks, green chopping or windrowing stalks for bedding, you can use the conventional hitch, or you can leave the "swing tongue" attached for these jobs as well. By adding an optional hood attachment, you can also green chop into a trailing wagon.
