    The DM12 Series Disc Mower's helical-shaped cutting knives ensure clean cutting, even in dense crops. For safe operation, knives are secured with heavy-duty, heat-treated steel bolts.

Compensating spring levels cutterbar in rolling terrain and ditches

    The compensating spring on the Frontier DM12 Series Disc Mower keeps the cutterbar level with the ground when mowing rolling terrain and ditches.

     

    The spring tension is adjusted by changing the mainframe height with the tractor's three-point lift. A safety mechanism allows the unit to swing backward to reduce impact should an obstacle be struck.

Steel guards protect mower from low-lying objects

    Inside each disc of the DM12 Series Disc Mower is a state-of-the-art disc pinion shaft. The shaft bearings are positioned in respect to the blade line of force for balanced operation and longer bearing life.

     

    The oval shape of the disc ensures maximum knife overlap, and the ribbed profile allows material to flow cleanly and efficiently through the mower.
