A new disc mower and mower conditioner has joined the range of hay tools distributed by New Holland – which it says can cater for almost everyone.

The front-mounted DiscCutter mower conditioner is available in 3.11m and 3.52m versions and comes with what New Holland says is advanced contour floation technology, allowing it to follow the ground for even mowing performance.

"This technology can compensate for side inclinations of up to 12° and vertical inclinations of up to 55cm," New Holland says.

"And with the cutting unit suspended in a trapeze-system, the cutting unit leans back once it is moved backwards – making it ideal when working in hilly or mountainous pastures, ensuring an even cut and a minimum of soil contamination."

Check out our story from 2014 about New Holland's Discbine mower conditioner line-up. 

The front-mounted versions of both the DiscCutter and the DuraDisc mower have been designed to position the cut crop between the tractor’s wheel to prevent contamination of the crop due to the wheels running over it. The mower discs all rotate in the same direction, to deliver crop to the centre of the mower.

The rear-mounted DiscCutter mower conditioner comes in five widths – ranging from 2.37m to 3.86m – with an option for polyurethane finger conditioners on the three narrowest models.

Both the rear-mounted DiscCutter and the rear-mounted mower DuraDisc come with the Vari-Float hydraulic suspension system that follows ground contours, while its hydraulic obstacle release feature is pressurised during operation and makes for non-stop mowing.

The rear-mounted DuraDiscs range in width from 2.02m to 2.77m, while the front-mounted mower is available as a 2.96m model.

Both rear-mounted models also come with an auto transport device featre which locks the mower into transport position as soon as it is lifted – with the ability to be quickly lowered when entering a new paddock.
