The comprehensive GMD 240, 280 and 310 Series Multidisc mower range with cutting widths ranging from 2.4m, to 3.1m caters for both small farmers with low horse power requirements and the requirements of the larger farmers who demand a combination of features, operating ease and productivity. The feature of this range over that of the 10 Series range is the improved cutter bar. Each disc bearing station can be removed individually to reduce down time for repairs. Common features on the models listed would be the high rate of working speed, a non-clogging cutter-bar and no blades to sharpen. This can be attributed to the sophisticated oval disc profile for positive ejection of mowed crop and the increased knife overlap for a cleaner cut by attaching the knives to a larger diameter disc. The new suspension system with an operating range of between – 35° and +35° allows for the easy mowing of terraces and [...]
