All grease points on the main mower body have been eliminated, spring steel greaseable bushings are used only in the walking axles. All other major pivot points are now use maintenance free, fibre wound bushings with 1 1/4″ diameter pins for strength.
Single domed, sweep clean deck design eliminates excess weight over competitive double-deck designs, eliminates build up of debris and prevents rusting on top side of deck
Walking or through axles are now available on both centre section and wings
Increased ground clearance and a cutting chamber depth of 15 3/8” (2″ greater than the Series 4) and an increased blade tip speed, result in an unsurpassed material flow with improved cutting speed
Extra large 10.5 X 27 skid steer tires, 29″ foam or air filled aircraft tires or 26″ laminated tires, allow for greater transport height along with improved performance in wet conditions
The XH-1500 Series 5 incorporates a floating hitch through the use of tension links. These links are connected from the hitch to the rear beam and are allowed to free float in one direction. This system allows the front of the cutter to easily pass over obstacles without causing damages to the tension links or putting unnecessary stress on the deck.
The hitch is also equipped with a bolt in, replaceable 2 1/4″ swivel which allows for maximum ground contouring without putting unnecessary twisting on the tractor draw bar.
Hitch options include Schulte’s Precision Hitch, a standard clevis and our new Pro Level Hitch
Centre suspension reduces stress on tractor draw bar
3/8” thick formed deck protection rings prevent blade to deck contact
Double safety chains with individually replaceable links are standard equipment
New adjustable and replaceable side skirt with skid shoes that are cast and cupped to reduce scrubbing on tight turns.
Optional gauge wheel kit can be mounted on the left or right wing to aid in clearing road approaches during ditch mowing
New wing lift tower, along with rugged hinge line allow for easier operation & increased strength. The double acting independent wing lift cylinder was designed to put less stress on wings and hinges
Phased hydraulic cylinders are standard to provide level lifting across the width of the cutter. Centre and wing sections all raise and lower together. Cutting height is controlled by the centre depth stop for one touch levelling.
