For the ultimate experience in disc mower conditioners, you can’t beat the Kubota DMC8540R. Boasting a massive 13’ 1” working width and 12’ 6” transport width, this disc mower conditioner ensures you’ll cover ground and maneuver with ease as you work throughout the day. With the DMC8540R’s centrifugal force tines and adjustable conditioning plate, you can achieve your desired conditioning in any crop season after season.
Utilizing centrifugal force is what makes the Kubota SemiSwing conditioner stand out among other conditioning systems. It offers an aggressive conditioning effect with excellent tine protection and virtually no wear and tear. The conditioner plate can be set in 3 positions, according to the required conditioning effect. Depending on crop conditions and the amount of crop you are cutting, the plate is easily adjusted to achieve the desired conditioning.
The DMC8500 series offers a secure and convenient transport solution, including an integrated lighting kit for excellent road visibility. The transport width for DMC8536T and DMC8536R is 11'2", the transport width for DMC8540T and DMC8540R is 12'6", and the transport width for DMC8547T and DMC8547R is 14'9".
DMC8500 series models have a lifting height of 1'6" to ensure excellent ground clearance for transport and during headland turning.
All models can be fitted with an optional easy-to-use wide spreading kit. This enables crop to be cut and spread in one operation, saving both time and resources. Best of all, changing from swathing to wide spreading is a one-man-job.
Mowers can be fitted with the 'Express' system for quick and easy changing of knives. Simply place the lever around the bolt, release the spring by turning the lever and the knife is ready to be replaced with a new one.
The fully welded Kubota cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a stiff and strong design, ensuring a high level of durability. The cutterbar’s design, with machined gears and large bearings along with low oil requirements, allows for a low working temperature for efficient oil cooling and lubrication of the entire cutterbar.
Rotating Three-Bladed Discs
With three blades per disc, Kubota mowers are constantly cutting. This means a third less load per blade, an even load on the drive and smoother power usage – which produces an even, cleanly cut stubble. Each steel blade is precisely angled to immediately discharge the cut crop upwards by both air flow and mechanical action.
A simple crank adjusts the whole cutterbar assembly up or down to a desired stubble height. Additional skids are available to increase cutting height.
The long spring design allows for excellent ground following ability. In uneven fields, the mower is able to adapt +19.7"/-5.9" The suspension springs are fitted on the widest possible position of the mowing section to ensure even ground pressure. The weight on ground is stable and only approximately 88 -110 pounds on each side. The suspension arms are fitted between the mowing section and mainframe so when an obstacle is encountered, the mowing section moves backwards and upwards to allow the object to pass. The mower will automatically return to its working position once the obstacle is cleared.
The complete mowing section, including the conditioner, is suspended independently from the main chassis by either two or four long adjustable suspension springs, allowing field tracks and contours to be closely followed. If an obstacle is encountered in the field, the mowing section will lift up and backwards, protecting the cutterbar from damage. When the obstacle is passed, the mowing section automatically returns to the working position.
The DMC8500 models are equipped with a center pivot drawbar for mowing both to the right and left side of the tractor. This important advantage in mower design allows operators to mow in one continuous pattern, without the need for constantly opening up new headlands. Consequently, time consuming short runs are eliminated and mowing capacity is increased.
