When an obstacle is encountered, the DM1000 series swings backwards to protect the cutterbar; by reversing, the mower is reset into working position.
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.
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.
