Two gearboxes rotating in opposite directions assure an excellent discharge and distribution of the cut material either behind the machine or to the left and right hand side on the tree strips.
The central section has two front swivel wheels and a rear roller, the wind sections have support saucers fitted with bearings.
The larger models DR-440, DR-480 and DR-570 are fitted with full rubber instead of steel wheels. Model DR-570 is also equipped with support wheels on the wings.
There is a small amount of float on the wings to allow for undulating ground. For terrains which are seriously undulating or not level with the central alley, raisable, wings are available as an option.
Hydraulically adjustable rotary mower with wings
The series DR variable width mowers consist of a rigid central section with an adjustable wing mounted on either side. The wings are operated by hydraulic rams which move smoothly and independently open and closed, to allow for an easy and exact adjustment of the cutting width in orchards and vineyards with different row widths.
Orchard wing mower with opposite rotation of the blades
Two separate gearboxes rotating in opposite directions drive the main blades of our DR orchard wing mowers. The cut material is evenly distributed behind the machine over its full working width or can, by removing two side plates, be spread to the left and right hand side of the machine on the tree strips.
Excellent terrain adjustment
The central section of these orchard wing mowers has two front support wheels and a rear roller to give the necessary stability and excellent terrain adjustment. To protect the bearings of the rear rollers, the bearings are fitted with unique covers to prevent humidity, dust and mud from entering.
