MegaCutter™ 530 Rear-Mounted Mower-Conditioner
At 14 miles per hour, the MegaCutter™ 530 delivers up to 43 acres-per-hour capacity—ideal for today’s largest livestock operations and custom harvesters required to get the big jobs done fast while helping to reduce operating costs. With nearly double the cutting width of a traditional 16-foot mower-conditioner or self-propelled windrower, a MegaCutter is ideally suited to match the capacity of large self-propelled forage harvesters and because you’re done mowing faster crops can take advantage of peak drying conditions during the day.
The twin MegaCutter 530 disc cutterbars are fully welded and feature an integral box beam support for the flexibility and support needed for challenging conditions. Three levels of protection safeguard the cutterbar against damage in the event of a collision while mowing— 1- Round disc profile produces less wind disturbance and resists stone jamming, 2- Discs are set back for less chance of direct collision, 3- Integrated shear-key system provides disc drive protection.
You can trust the MegaCutter™ 530 rear mounted mower-conditioner to follow the most rolling terrain, provide a clean cut, and remain protected from hidden obstacles. The balanced system suspends each head using twin, heavy-duty flotation springs are attached close to the pivoting point of each cutting head to provide a lower ground pressure and ensure even flotation across the full width. A mechanical, non-stop safety breakaway allows each cutting head to move up and back simultaneously to absorb the impact and clear obstructions, then automatically reset to the working position without stopping.
This ultra-reliable system adjusts to suit your working speeds and field conditions protecting your crop stubble and reduce skid shoe wear so you can mow with confidence, knowing there are no hydraulic accumulators or cylinders to leak down while mowing.
You get synchronized and independent lift control of the twin MegaCutter 530 heads using a single momentary switch for greater convenience. For even more convenience an optional kit provides control of the headland lift function of the front mower-conditioner using the control box.
