Available starting early next year, the Claas Disco Move mowers feature an impressive ‘give’ of up to one metre vertically and 30 degrees laterally, allowing them to work with optimal efficiency and safety even in the roughest paddocks.

With width options of 3.4 and three metres respectively, the new configurations feature a highly manoeuvrable headstock that allows the mower to move independently from the tractor front linkage.

"The Move has 600mm of travel up and 400mm down, making it ideal for uneven fields," Claas Harvest Centre product manager of Scorpion and Greenline Shane Barratt says.

"The mower can also pivot up to 30 degrees laterally, further improving its ability to follow contours or swing backwards to avoid obstacles."

This headstock incorporates the Active Float integrated hydraulic suspension from the previous Disco models as well as the low pivot point from the Profil range.

"Active Float eliminates the need for suspension spring coupling points on the tractor," Barratt says. "The suspension pressure can be adjusted during operation again using a single-acting hydraulic service."

The headstock can be coupled either directly to the tractor front linkage or using an A-frame.

"The handy adjustment guide allows you to set the front link arms at the right height from the tractor cab," Barratt says. "The front linkage now remains fixed during operation, with the mower raised and lowered via integrated hydraulics.

"The convenient Kennfixx hydraulic couplings, which are fitted as standard, can be run on the left or right-hand side of the headstock to suit your tractor," Barratt adds. "Likewise, the suspension pressure gauge can be mounted on either side for optimum visibility."

The drive shafts are deemed low maintenance, with the universal joints only needing lubricating every 250 hours. 

The Disco Move 3600 and 3200 unit can also be configured as a mower only (F) or with a tine conditioner (FC) or roller conditioner (FRC).

Other options include hydraulic side covers, foldable lights, warning panel and double wide-angle mirrors for improved visibility on the road.

Both units incorporate the award-winning Max Cut cutterbar, a unique wave-shaped design made from a single piece of steel that enables the cutting discs to be placed further forwards improving cutting quality in all conditions.

"The special shape of the skids and the large channel between them provides a high degree of self-cleaning," Barratt says. "The bolted design of the mower bed and permanent lubrication of all drive components simplify maintenance and guarantee dimensional stability and longevity."

When the mower is uncoupled, a parking latch on the headstock locks the kinematics so that the mower can stand securely without additional support.
