Optidisc® Cutterbar with Fast-Fit
The Optidisc cutterbar requires no break-in oil change or scheduled maintenance for the life of the machine. It has a flat profile allowing the crop to move through quickly for smooth flow even in heavy, difficult conditions.
The innovative design offers exclusive differential spacing:
1.) Narrower spacing at diverging discs provide greater knife overlap for cleaner cutting
2.) Wider spacing at converging discs provide great capacity and higher throughput
Fast-Fit allows quick changing of knives with the use of a simple tool, yet still provides optimum cut quality and knife life seen with the standard system. With Fast-Fit, you can achieve up to 50% time savings.
The DigiDry™ finger conditioner provides consistent drying of grass and legume crops in various conditions with little maintenance. The built-in breakback feature normally protects against damage from rocks and other foreign materials.
Broadest Range of Windrow Widths
The wider the crop is spread, the more surface area there is exposed to the sun for faster drying. The FC TC Series mower conditioners allow wide spreading to over 90% of cut width for accelerated drydown. The nine vanes on the rear hood automatically pivot to keep cut crop from being thrown into uncut areas.
Tight Turns and Clean, Square Corners
The heavy-duty Gyrodine® gearbox is designed to withstand the most severe pull-through force from the hitch to the machine. The swivel design allows turns in excess of 90° while keeping the PTO driveline straight. Choose from two hitch attachments – drawbar or 2-point swivel.
Simple Drawbar Hitch
The drawbar hitch is easy to hook up and the heavy-duty build provides dependability and long life. The built-in swivel allows movement in three dimensions to easily adapt to uneven field conditions.
Quick Hitch Compatible 2-Point
The CAT 2/3N quick hitch compatible 2-point hitch provides a fully controlled connection and allows easy adjustment to maintain a level PTO. It also provides more ground clearance for previously mowed crop to pass through. Connecting arms pivot during hookup for easy alignment. All connecting quick hitches must meet standard ASABE specifications.
The torsion bar suspension system and articulated cutting head provide exceptional flotation to precisely follow ground contours. The torsional resistance can be easily fine-tuned to match the header ground pressure to different field conditions and operation speeds. A built-in slotted linkage eliminates the need to run the hydraulics in the float position. The articulated cutting head allows for more consistent crop flow and better shaped windrows or swaths.
