With the arrival of tractors with isodiametric reversible drive wheels and front lifters in standard tractors the need to use disc mowers applicable “facing” the driver, certainly more practical and less voluminous than traditional machines, has increased.
The front mounted disc mowers Rotex TR AVANT are created and they are available in the versions with 5, 6 o 7 discs.
The frame has a linear, compact, light and resistant structure. Developed to significantly reduce the projecting part of the machine with respect to the tractor, it optimises the distribution of the loads, making the “combine” more stable.
The hydraulic displacement device, mounted as standard, allows the AVANT mowing machines to move transversally about 200m on both sides and it also becomes a practical accessory when having to mow in the presence of trees or on canal banks A central articulated joint lets the machines oscillate with respect to the coupling, adapting to the morphology of the soils on which they are used. A pin allows “blocking” it during road transfers.
The cutter bar of the Rotex, well profiled and low thickness block, was realised with gears in an oil bath made from high resistance steel, strongly protected by anti-wear slides made from special steel with boron/manganese and by baffles in the knife overlap zones. The highly aggressive profiled discs are made from special steel.
The profile of the bar allows better penetration in all types of forage, even if thick and flattened, making it easier to pass through without clogging.
Rotex are available with normal-rotating discs, recommended for high and thick forage, or with counter-rotating discs, recommended for low and dense forage as in mountain zones.
