Features & Details

SemiSwing Conditioners

SemiSwing Conditioners (T Models)

Depending on crop conditions and the amount of crop you are cutting, the plate is easily adjusted to achieve the desired conditioning.

Excellent Ground Clearance

DMC8500 series models have a lifting height of 1'6" to ensure excellent ground clearance for transport and during headland turning.

Wide-spreading_002

Wide Spreading Kit

All models can be fitted with an optional easy-to-use wide spreading kit. This enables crop to be cut and spread in one operation, saving both time and resources. Best of all, changing from swathing to wide spreading is a one-man-job.

Express Quick Change of Knives - DM

Express Quick Change of Knives

Mowers can be fitted with the 'Express' system for quick and easy changing of knives. Simply place the lever around the bolt, release the spring by turning the lever and the knife is ready to be replaced with a new one.

02_fully-welded-cutterbar

Fully Welded Cutterbar

The fully welded Kubota cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a stiff and strong design, ensuring a high level of durability. The cutterbar’s design, with machined gears and large bearings along with low oil requirements, allows for a low working temperature for efficient oil cooling and lubrication of the entire cutterbar.

01_triangular-discs

Counter

Rotating Three-Bladed Discs

With three blades per disc, Kubota mowers are constantly cutting. This means a third less load per blade, an even load on the drive and smoother power usage – which produces an even, cleanly cut stubble. Each steel blade is precisely angled to immediately discharge the cut crop upwards by both air flow and mechanical action.

Easy Adjustment

A simple crank adjusts the whole cutterbar assembly up or down to a desired stubble height. Additional skids are available to increase cutting height.

Benefits of Kubota Suspension Springs Design

The long spring design allows for excellent ground following ability. In uneven fields, the mower is able to adapt +19.7"/-5.9" The suspension springs are fitted on the widest possible position of the mowing section to ensure even ground pressure. The weight on ground is stable and only approximately 88 -110 pounds on each side. The suspension arms are fitted between the mowing section and mainframe so when an obstacle is encountered, the mowing section moves backwards and upwards to allow the object to pass. The mower will automatically return to its working position once the obstacle is cleared.

Kubota-Suspension-for-Clean

Kubota Suspension for Clean Cutting Action

The complete mowing section, including the conditioner, is suspended independently from the main chassis by either two or four long adjustable suspension springs, allowing field tracks and contours to be closely followed. If an obstacle is encountered in the field, the mowing section will lift up and backwards, protecting the cutterbar from damage. When the obstacle is passed, the mowing section automatically returns to the working position.

0614_DMC8536_Drawbar_5968

Center Pivot Drawbar

The DMC8500 models are equipped with a center pivot drawbar for mowing both to the right and left side of the tractor. This important advantage in mower design allows operators to mow in one continuous pattern, without the need for constantly opening up new headlands. Consequently, time consuming short runs are eliminated and mowing capacity is increased.
