AHEAD OF THE REST
Take off hay quickly and easily with the speed and capacity of Durabine™ disc mower-conditioner headers. They provide reliability with reduced power consumption.
FAST AND SIMPLE IN-FIELD SERVICABILITY
MowMax™ II cutterbars feature a true modular design for smooth, quiet, trouble-free mowing as well as fast and inexpensive servicing. Driven through individually sealed gearboxes with dedicated oil reservoirs, modules are never at risk for oil starvation while cutting on slopes. In the event that your mower hits an obstruction, the exclusive New Holland ShockPRO™ hubs absorb harmful impacts, protecting the internal cutterbar drive from damage. Even better, they’re quick to replace in the field so you can keep cutting when the weather is right. Replacement takes less than 10 minutes, at a minimal cost and without compromising the sealed module. Accidents happen, and in the event of a significant collision, the true modular MowMax concept design fully contains damage to the affected module to minimize damage to the rest of the cutterbar.
THE BENEFIT OF LARGER DISCS AND KNIFE OPTIONS
Durabine heads provide a close, clean cut with less horsepower, which improves mowing efficiency and reduces fuel consumption. The large-diameter cutting discs operate at a shallower angle that easily slices through down crop and reduces the risk of scalloping. The MowMax II cutterbar delivers a close cut—as short as 0.79 inch—as well as a wider range of cutting heights—up to 3.5 inches with standard skid shoes. Reversible, swing-away, 18-degree twist knives are standard. A broad, offering of knives includes standard 14-degree twist knives, 7-degree twist knives, special-design rock knives, and 14-degree twist, serrated knives. For extended knife wear in difficult conditions, the rock knife offers greater resistance bending, and are ideal when operating in extremely stony conditions. Special serrated knives are ideally suited for sandy soils or abrasive operating conditions, providing long life in these harsh working environments. All New Holland knives for Durabine™ disc heads are reversible for double the cutting life and work with the QuickMax system.
SMOOTH AND EVEN CROP FLOW
Durabine disc heads feature the exclusive, full-length crop-flow auger that quickly moves crop away from the cutterbar for cleaner cutting, increased capacity, optimum feeding, more uniform conditioning quality, and an evenly distributed windrow. The heavy-duty, 20-inch auger features thick 5/16-inch flighting with reinforcement gussets on the backside to handle the heaviest crops with ease.
