MEGACUTTER™ RANGE OF MOWERS
New Holland's MegaCutter™ mowers are engineered to optimize throughput. The triple mower setup allows for highly efficient work rates, boasting an impressive 8.60 meter cutting width. The range comprises two pendulum suspended cutting units, each equipped with eight discs. Despite the considerable cutting width, these mowers maintain a remarkably low power requirement, making them compatible with tractors as low as 140 horsepower.

A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE - The New Holland brand has become synonymous with hay and forage excellence, an unbroken bloodline which stretches back more than a century.
DURABLE CUTTERBAR TECHNOLOGY
The cutterbar is indeed the central component of the mower. Across all models, it features a low-profile design with a smooth underside and a broad bearing surface. This design minimizes ground pressure, preserving both the field and the crop during mowing, thus promoting faster regrowth. Moreover, the low-profile design enables cutting the crop to a 40mm stubble height, maximizing crop yield during harvest.
Ease of use
The cutterbar's twisted blades can be swiftly and easily replaced using a dedicated tool. Servicing is made convenient with the 'on top' serviceability feature. The bearing hubs can be quickly and easily disassembled, providing rapid access for servicing needs.
PE conditioner Fingers
The flexible Polyethylene fingers are exceptionally pliable, lightweight, and demand minimal maintenance. They are particularly suitable for individuals involved in cattle fodder production. In the event that a finger is inadvertently lost in the crop, it poses no harm to livestock or the forage harvester, ensuring a safe and trouble-free operation.
Depending on the specific crop, its moisture content, and the intended use, adjusting the conditioning level can be easily and swiftly done using a single handle.
Prepared for the unexpected
Dealing with unexpected field obstacles is an inherent challenge, but with DuraDisc™ F, DiscCutter™ F, DiscCutter™, and MegaCutter™ models, New Holland has introduced the reliable ShockPro™ disc drive hubs. These hubs act as a protective shield for disc drive modules, preventing damage and allowing for swift replacements. When a disc comes into contact with an obstruction, the partially splined hub is purposefully designed to shear, effectively safeguarding the cutterbar drive. This mechanism ensures all components stay securely in place, providing the opportunity to halt and replace the single damaged hub with minimal cost and disruption.
This remarkable feature, found in DiscCutter™ models equipped with PE fingers or Steel Flail conditioners, facilitates extensive crop spreading, covering over 85% of the cutting width. It enhances the conditioning process by actively directing the crop into the conditioner. The broader swath exposes a larger portion of the crop to the air, reducing drying time—especially advantageous when working in adverse weather conditions. Furthermore, the degree of top drying can be easily adjusted using a single handle.
The three-point suspension is crafted from high-strength steel, ensuring a combination of compactness and stability during operation. Additionally, this design contributes to a reduced overall operating weight and minimizes stress on the tractor, promoting efficient and smooth functionality.
The entire MegaCutter range can be specified either with, or without conditioner.
The cutter bar is designed with a shallow cutting angle, and guide shoes extend across the entire width. This design guarantees a uniform flow of material across the cutterbar, resulting in clean and even stubble. Additionally, the guideshoes cover the entire length of the cutterbar, promoting regrowth. Blade replacement is a swift, straightforward process using the provided tool, releasing the blade directly from the safety pin.
Drying assistance: TopDry™ system
The machine offers the convenience of a single handle for easy adjustment, enabling wide spreading and additional conditioning. This proves highly advantageous when operating within tight weather windows. The TopDry system accelerates the drying process, aiding in preserving the nutritional value of the crop.
One sided mowing
The ability to independently lift the two rear mower wings allows for mowing with just one side, which is ideal when working in narrow fields and dealing with tapered field edges. This feature enhances versatility and efficiency during mowing operations.
Easy obstacle release
The adjustable mechanical obstacle release enables the entire cutter unit to move backwards in the event of a collision.
