    The Discbine 313 and 316 can be equipped with a choice of six different cutterbar knives, depending on your crop conditions and soil type. All knives feature two cutting edges and can be flipped for double the cutting life. These knives are available from the parts department:
    • 14-degree smooth knives are standard on the Discbine® MowMax™ II cutterbar and provide the best choice and value for most conditions.
    • 14-degree serrated knives offer the same advantages as 14-degree smooth knives, with extended wear in abrasive conditions.
    • 18-degree smooth knives are more effective in down crop conditions by providing more crop lift.
    • 18-degree serrated knives offer the same advantages in down crops as the 18-degree smooth knives, with extended wear in abrasive conditions.
    • 7-degree smooth knives offer clean cutting with less ash content, and will reduce crop blow down in light or short crops.
    • Rock knives are designed for durability in rocky/stony conditions.>
  • BIOMASS KIT

    For working in energy crops like cane, switchgrass or corn stover, order the new biomass kit. It includes extra-high skid shoes for the increased cut height and longer stubble desired in these crops. Lift lock out channels stop the cylinders mid-stroke to maintain good flotation, even when cutting well off the ground. A pushbar kit is available to push tall crops forward and maintain cut quality.
