The DMC8000 Series left handed drawbar disc mower conditioners are equipped with features such as fully welded cutterbar, independent active suspension, your choice of SemiSwing or chevron roller conditioners, and FlipOver wide spreading to meet every request with exceptional performance.
With three blades per disc Kubota mowers are constantly cutting. This means a third less load per blade; an even load on the drive; smoother power usage; and produces a neat, cleanly cut stubble.
The Kubota cutterbar’s high oil capacity ensures a very low working temperature for effi cient oil cooling and lubrication of the entire cutterbar. The fully welded cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a very stiff and strong design, ensuring very high level of durability.
The complete mowing section, including the conditioner, is suspended independently from the main chassis by either two or four long adjustable suspension springs, allowing field tracks and contours to be closely followed. If an obstacle is encountered in the field, the mowing section will lift up and backwards, protecting the cutterbar from damage. When the obstacle is passed, the mowing section automatically returns to the working position.
All DMC8000 models can be fitted with an easy-to-use wide spreading kit. This enables crop to be cut and spread in one operation, saving both time and resources. Best of all, changing from swathing to wide spreading is a one-man-job.
A simple crank adjusts the whole cutterbar assembly up or down to a desired stubble height. Additional skids are available to increase cutting height.
Utilizing centrifugal force is what makes the Kubota SemiSwing conditioner stand out among other conditioning systems. It offers an aggressive conditioning effect while still offering excellent tine protection and virtually no wear and tear. During operation tines will stay in a fixed position, providing full conditioning with minimum wear. The conditioner plate can be set in 3 positions according to the required conditioning effect. Depending on crop conditions and the amount of crop you are cutting, the plate is easily adjusted to match that days conditions.
Roller conditioning provides gentle, yet effective handling of fragile crop such as alfalfa or clover. The 8.8″ diameter wide rubber rollers are made from highly durable polyurethane with a steel core. This process guarantees for straight rollers that will not twist out of shape, regardless of the force trans-mitted onto them. The spring-controlled pressure exerted between the two rollers guarantees uniform conditioning intensity, regardless of the amount of crop passing through the rollers. Additionally, if an obstacle is encountered, the spring tensioning system will separate the rollers, leaving an opening of up to 2.4″ allowing objects to pass without damage to the rollers.
