One of the most significant changes is to the rotor gearbox. Designed by Spearhead in the UK, major components are increased by up to 30%, with horsepower rating climbing from 111 to 165HP.
Double lip seals and a reinforced seal protector offer further safeguarding for one of the most significant components to feature on a rotary mower. In fact, Spearhead is so confident of this new gearbox, it boasts a five-year warranty.
The robust gearbox is a clear commitment to the longevity of Spearhead Multicut machines. Whilst wearing parts can be replaced at low cost, it’s imperative that the gearbox is designed to last for the working life of the cutter.
Not all agricultural land is perfect and challenging terrain can be commonplace. Spearhead has therefore strengthened its rear axles on the new Multicut series.
Walking axles are now standard on both machines. The wheels are offset and pivoted, so they can roll with the contour of the ground. Stress transfer is greatly reduced, ensuring reduced wear and shock loading.
Coupled with tougher axles, the lift system has been improved, with the removal of linkages. Each wheel arm now has individual lift, so changing height is faster and easier.
The centre deck of Multicut 470 and 630 mowers is now completely flat. Cleaning and maintenance are much easier. Most debris will simply fall off the deck whilst in motion. Anything remaining will be much faster to remove.
