Balanced mower head & sickle bar components
When you choose the International Harvester Co. type Balanced Mower Head and Sickle Bar components, you have selected a Balanced Head designed with just three moving parts, riding on six precision tapered roller bearings. No pitmans, gears or connecting rods to cause problems. The Balanced Head converts speed and power to fast, powerful knife strokes.
The IH Balanced Mower Head and Cutter Bar features a balanced head designed with just three moving parts, riding on six precision tapered roller bearings. There are no pitmans, gears or connecting rods to cause problems. The balanced head converts speed and power to efficient sickle strokes. The sickle stays sharp longer, and runs at 2,000 strokes per minute for quick cutting action and faster travel through the field.
The balanced design keeps knife sections in register, parallel and exposed for sharp, even cutting over rough ground.
The bars may be raised hydraulically to a vertical position for easy inspection and transporting, or lowered to below ground level 20° for even cutting along ditch banks or terraces.
An automatic safety release protects both heavy-duty sickle bars. The mower bar breaks away if it hits an obstruction, reducing the chance of machine damage. The bar automatically relatches when the operator backs up the mower. Breakaway tension is adjustable for different field conditions.
A choice of swath boards or swath rods are available and adjust quickly for varying crops and conditions to assure separation of cut and uncut crop.
Pitmanless mower head & sickle bar components
Your Rowse Mower can be equipped with the New Holland type Pitmanless Mower Head and Cutter Bar. The Pitmanless design with parallel drive motion reduces noise and vibration and eliminates any sickle register adjustment. The design also reduces wear on the cutter bar assembly for trouble-free operation. Tapered roller bearings are located throughout the Pitmanless Drive Head for durability and less maintenance. The sickles run at 1600 strokes per minute with long strokes between guards. This allows more of the crop to be cut in one stroke while the sickle remains at top shearing speed.
Bars raise to vertical position hydraulically for easy transporting and inspecting. The sickles may be lowered 20° below level to cut along ditch banks or terraces. An automatic safety release protects both bars, allowing them to relatch quickly when mower is backed up.
Vertical lift assembly is a standard feature on all Rowse mowers, allowing the cutter bar to be operated with a knife running at almost any angle. This allows the operator to hydraulically lower or raise the cutter bar for mowing ditches or hills.
The bar may also be raised to a vertical position while passing posts, trees or other obstructions, without stopping to disengage the PTO drive. The operator should be cautious, however, that the raised bar does not hit or hook obstructions.
