The S70 is built tough with the size and strength you require to handle demanding jobs. On close inspection you will discover many quality and performance features that make it the best value mower in its class. Built at least five ways better than any other mower of its type this tough cutter will cut anything up to 2" brush. Additional blades are available to enhance shredding performance.

A super clean deck surface is easily swept clean to prevent rusting. As well, continuous welded seams add strength and also hinders rust formation.

Model V1280 click here for photo of V1280

Designed from the ground up for mowing in citrus groves! The patented design features a small 22" center blade assembly that allows the unit to make a close cut, even in deep furrows. Individual slip clutches are provided for each blade set, allowing one set of blades to stop while the others keep rotating. This arrangement greatly reduces drive line shock loads. A spring counterbalance system combined with a large trailing skid help the machine clear obstructions without damage.

Model F14

The F14 is designed tough for shredding stalks but also does a great job of general purpose cutting. The lower blade is available two ways: a standard blade or an updraft type to enhance general cutting performance. A drive arrangement that includes a rugged 180 hp, four shaft, divider gearbox and three 130 hp spindle drive gearboxes allows the use of slip clutches on each blade set, eliminating the need for timed blades.

Model 3020

Power delivery is handled by specially designed 220 hp divider box with 50° output shaft angles instead of the more common 40° angle, allowing the use of wing drive shafts that are no longer than on a 15' machine. These short drive shafts are not subject to the vibration related problems usually encountered on competitive machines.

The unique drive line results in a frame arrangement with the center blade set at the rear and the wing blades set forward resulting in a flat front on all three frame sections. This design produces a higher cutting rate than on conventional delta wing designs since most material is no being held down by the frame or chain curtain at the time it contacts the blades.
