Sickle Bar Mowers | 3-Point
Looking for a way to cut ditches or pond banks? Planning to cut your own hay or raise specialty crops? Then you need a sickle mower because it is a lightweight machine that can mow at a 90 degree angle straight up and down on hedges or let the bar "float" down to 45 degrees for cutting dangerous places like ponds.
And while they don’t mow at the higher speeds of drum or disc mowers, they excel at cutting at angles well above and below level. Some sickle mowers can even cut in the vertical position, which lets you easily trim hedges.
Plus, less motion means less dust. Disc and drum mowers create a vortex of moving air across the blades. Sickle bars have very little motion and work without throwing a lot of dust into the air around you.
Unfortunately, all the old New Holland, Deere, New Idea and other familiar brands are either worn out, overpriced, or both.
We’ve Got The Sickle Mower You Need
Here’s a brand new machine that costs about the same as they always have. It comes from Durabilt-Rossi, the global leader in sickle bar mower production. Their sickle bar mowers have an allowable cut from- 45° to + 90° horizontally, perfect for mowing hedges, ditches, pond banks, etc. The double action cutter bar ensures a sharp clean cut on any type of grass - even hard-to-cut, exotic crops like hemp.
And these mowers are strong yet compact, requiring very little horsepower. This means you can pull one with a small compact or utility tractor. If you have a very low power tractor (15 HP or less) this option will really be your best bet.
Durabilt-Rossi cutters are equipped with an automatic breakaway bar to protect the cutter from field obstructions and come standard with a second blade. They fit both cat I and cat II tractors, and each mower is individually tested before shipment and carries a one-year parts warranty.
For the best option in harvesting forage crops with a small tractor, or grooming those hard-to-reach areas on your estate, get a Durabilt-Rossi sickle bar mower.
