Major Cyclone Mower
Major Cyclone Mower
The MAJOR Range of Cyclone Mowers has been designed to do the work of a flail mower but requires a fraction of the power and fuel that a flail mower would consume.
These machines are strong, rugged and robust; specifically designed for use in set-aside, forestry margin management and sensitive environmental scrubland control. This machine easily copes with the toughest of conditions including shrub, saplings, gorse and brush as well as the clearance of arable stubble, including maize and rapeseed crops.
There are four models currently available; a 2m, 2.5m, 3m and 5.5m model. The 2m model has a side shift function (400mm) and can be front or rear mounted.
Optim™ high-strength steel is used in the manufacture of these machines. This material is stronger, yet much lighter than steel traditionally used in machinery manufacturing. With the combination of swinging blades, under-sole anti-scalping disc and heavy duty rear roller, the fully mulched material is evenly distributed over the full width of cut.
The rubber buffers between the gearboxes provides protection for the gearboxes and drive system. The machine is fitted with MAJOR break back blade system as standard.
Standard features include:
• Front / rear mounted (2m, 2.5m and 3m models only)
• Anti scalp hardened blade saucer with internal bearings
• Patented inter-gearbox drive system
• Rear roller fitted with twin taper bearings each side as standard
• Impact shock reducing swinging hardened spring steel blades
• Low maintenance machine with less wearing parts than a flail mower
• 30% less power and fuel consumption than a flail machine
• 25% more output per day than comparable flail machines
• External double skin 3mm wear panels protect the machine from stone damage
The optional bullets are designed for use with the 3000FW-HDJ and 18000FW-HDJ model in arable land and for maize and heavy shrub clearance. The machine was initially designed to tackle the European corn borer which is destroying crops in Germany and other parts of Europe.
The bullet system shreds the plant remains left in the field after harvesting. This eliminates the overwintering of the caterpillars in the plant and helps eliminate this parasite from the crop. Because the bullets don’t have to hit the stalk deeply, there is no contact with the ground. This saves energy, fuel and wear. If a conventional flail were to process the stubble this intensively, fuel costs would be significantly higher.
