Massey Ferguson has introduced a new line of mowers – the Farmer DM Series.
“No matter what size tractor you operate or how challenging your terrain, one of the economical Massey Ferguson Farmer DM Series mowers can handle the job,” Massey Ferguson says in a release.
This Series includes four new models (DM1305, DM1306, DM1308 and DM1309) to match a wide range of horsepower requirements.
Farmer DM Series mowers are available in widths from 5 1/2 to 9 feet. With discs spinning at 3,000 rpm, they are designed deliver a clean cut at a faster pace than a sickle-bar mower. According to Massey Ferguson, their extremely flat, low-profile spur gear design achieves a clean cut even on difficult, rolling terrain. This design also helps ensure high forage flow without material buildup.
“We’ve designed these new disc mowers to give farmers and ranchers an advantage in speed, efficiency and durability,” says Massey Ferguson’s Dean Morrell, product marketing manager, Hay and Forage. “Regardless of your hay operation’s size or the horsepower you have in the shed, the Farmer DM Series will provide the performance and reliability you need.”
Massey Ferguson says the Farmer DM Series mowers are less likely to be damaged by rocks and uneven terrain because “these mowers are deliberately designed tough to take on the realities of hay production.”
The cutterbar is equipped with a roll/shear pin for every disc. The shear pin is positioned to break outside of the cutterbed, preventing internal damage and eliminating contamination of the oil bath. A spring-loaded anti-collision breakaway system allows the entire mower to pivot backwards if the mower comes in contact with an object protruding from the ground, so the operator has time to stop the tractor before serious damage can occur.
