Mower Deck For Skid Steer Loaders
The "Gras-Kat" mower quick-attaches to front of the skid steer loader with two pins and quick couples to the skid steer's auxiliary hydraulics. Cutting blades are driven by a high-speed hydraulic motor mounted on the deck, which floats with loader's flotation system. A pair of caster wheels mount in front of the deck and hard rubber rollers mount at the rear to prevent gouging. "You can go up to 8 mph and because skid steer loaders are so maneuverable it works great for mowing between trees inside windbreaks and orchards," says Don Sligor, president.
All belts and sheaves are shielded for safety. The mower trims from the left side and discharges clippings out the right side. Flipping up the side discharge chute allows "two-side" trimming.
Fits Bobcat, Gehl, Case, Deere, New Holland, Prime-Mover and Hesston skid steer loaders.
Sells for $2,150.
