Rotary cutters come in a wide range of sizes and configurations, but how do you know which one is right for you? Furthermore, how do you weigh the features against each other when you’re narrowing down your options? Luckily, John Deere has a wide array of rotary cutters to choose from, giving you one less thing to worry about as you look at the solutions available to you.
When Is a Rotary Cutter Needed?
Rotary cutters may be needed for several different applications. For instance, you may want this implement if you are handling a homestead and need to mow and trim along a wide swath of land; it is also extremely efficient for tall grasses, weeds, and brush. Farms and roadsides can benefit from rotary cutters, as they can tackle rough conditions. Furthermore, they can be extremely efficient for general livestock and property maintenance because of their ability to tackle rugged conditions.
What Types of Rotary Cutters are There?
Deere offers several rotary cutters that are designed to meet customers’ specific wants and needs. The Frontier RC20 Series Rotary Cutters, for instance, are ideal for small pastures, paddocks, food plots, and open acreage that need trimming. They have a rugged driveline and gearbox that are designed for years of use. Powder-coat paint also provides a long-lasting, scratch-resistant finish.
The MX Series from Deere has a double-deck design that delivers an ample amount of strength and material flow. There are five models, all of which are designed to zip through everything from tall grass to tough weeds and brush up to two inches in diameter.
Finally, there is the HX Series from Deere, which not only has double-deck strength, but more heavy duty features. For example, the HX Series models have a deeper cutting chamber and a fast blade-tip speed for improved performance.
How to Adjust Rotary Cutters
There are a few tips you can keep in mind while adjusting your rotary cutters. First, always make sure the cutting blades are sharp and balanced – the blades can be removed and sharpened individually. Next, make sure that the working width of the cutter is at least as wide as the distance between the edges of your rear tires. Finally, always read the operator’s manual before operating any piece of equipment to ensure that you’re using your implement appropriately.
