Replacing parts in time

Correctly interpreting signs of wear

Mowing systems are subject to high wear and tear, and must be inspected regularly. If replacements are postponed for too long, it can cost you valuable time due to possible downtimes for repairs in the field, or lost harvest yields. Even a slowdown of 0.3 km/h can mean several thousand euros for a cultivated area of 400 ha!

Check guard wear

Guards should be checked regularly for wear.

  • A new guard has a gap of 3.8 - 4.2 mm
  • A cutting gap of more than 5.4 mm causes floating of the knife
  • Impact of floating: slower cutting speed, increased fuel consumption, stalks get pulled

Section wear

Use a new section as gauge and counter the used section against.

Wear of the guiding plate

A worn guiding plate cannot guide the knife properly anymore, the knife has too much play.

Obvious: 90° angle of the guiding plate shows wear

With a worn guiding plate the quality of the cut gets worse. Wear of all components increases.
