Fully Welded Cutterbar
Kubota’s DM1000 Series features a heavy-duty Kubota cutterbar, which is designed with easy maintenance and quiet operation in mind. The fully welded Kubota cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a very stiff and strong design, ensuring a high level of durability. The cutterbar’s design, with machined gears and large bearings along with low oil requirements, allows for a low working temperature for efficient oil cooling and lubrication of the entire cutterbar.
Available Working Widths
- DM1017 – 5’6”
- DM1022 – 7’2”
- DM1024 – 7’9”
Spring Loaded Breakaway
When an obstacle is encountered, the DM1000 series swings backwards to protect the cutterbar; by reversing, the mower is reset into working position.
Vertical Transport Position
When in transport, the mowers are folded to a vertical position well behind the tractor. The center of gravity is close to the tractor, which ensures excellent weight distribution and transport stability.
Fast Lift on Headlands
The mower is easily lifted via a hydraulic cylinder without activating the tractor’s 3-point linkage. This causes less wear on the tractor and the machine, as the PTO stays in the same position, minimizing vibrations in the transmission.
Counter-Rotating Three-Bladed Discs
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 an even, cleanly cut stubble.
