JOHN DEERE CX15COMMERCIAL DUTY FLEX-WING ROTARY CUTTERS
WHEN HEAVY-DUTY JUST ISNT ENOUGH
If you mow for a living, or put more than 300 hours on a cutter in a year, the CX15 and CX20 commercial-duty rotary cutters are for you. Like other John Deere rotary cutters, these CX models feature the patented double-deck design. Upper and lower decks, with internal stiffeners, form the rotary cutter frame. This structural shape provides more strength thats especially true on these CX models which have thicker steel than any other cutter we make. You are ready to cut through stalks, weeds, and brush and saplings up to 4 inches in diameter.
The double-deck design also makes for better flow of cut material. Since there are no frame members in the cutting chamber to disrupt material flow, you get a smooth cut with even material distribution.
The wings on the CX cutters give you full cutting action up to 45 degrees above, and 22 degrees below horizontal perfect for cutting ditches and hillsides. And when the job is finished these cutters fold up to a transport width of 9 ft. 6 in. (2.9 m) on the CX15 and 11 ft. 2 in. (3.4 m) on the CX20.

Flex-wing CV driveline
Safety tow chains for extra support
CX ROTARY CUTTERS COME STANDARD WITH MANY FEATURES
Constant velocity (CV) drive shaft with locking collar is easy to hook up. Professional seals on the cross kits mean a lubrication interval up to 50 hours.
Unique ball-type self-leveling hitch clevis reduces shock loads on the hitch pin and draw bar allowing a 20 degree rotation (40 degrees total).
Narrow profile hitch, and the CV drive, allow for tight turns.
Hydraulically operated height adjustment, with a swing-away parking stand and a jack stand, makes raising and lowering the cutter easy and safe.
Wing hinges extend the full-length of each wing and are independently greaseable for long life.
Exclusive air suspension provide a smooth ride over rough terrain. (A spring suspension with shock absorbers is also available for CX15 model.)
Spring-loaded wing arms.
Smooth, dome-shaped double-deck design sheds water and debris.
Category 5 wing drivelines.
Front safety chains are protected behind the frame.
WHAT IS THE BEST CUTTER FOR YOUR JOB?
John Deere rotary cutters lead the way with innovative design, superior performance, and proven durability. Valuable features such as the Double-Decker design and Max Flow cutting chamber prevent water and debris from accumulating on the smooth, dome-shaped top deck while the flat bottom deck absorbs the punishment from rocks and stumps.
The top deck stays smooth - no dents, no dings, no holes. The internal supports sandwiched between the top and bottom decks are key to the smooth and structure-free Max Flow cutting chamber, while at the same time provide added strength and durability.
To help promote safe operation, John Deere rotary cutters are equipped with front and rear safety-chain shields. John Deere rotary cutters continue to advance in value with powerful gearboxes, blade holders, and compatibility with a wide range of tractors.
HERE ARE SITUATIONS WHEN A ROTARY CUTTER PROVIDES VALUE
Clipping pastures encourages grass growth, optimizing valuable pasture acreage.
Cutting grass and stalks helps control insects.
Routine cutting keeps weeds from reseeding.
It is the most cost efficient way to cut roadsides, parks, cemeteries, airport fields, hydro, gas, and telephone easements, and all other types of open properties.
Cutting grass waterways encourages root development and helps prevent erosion.
Knocking down stalks such as cotton, corn, or milo speeds up decomposition. This is essential in no-till and minimum-till fields.
Clearing out brush.
Control undergrowth and grass in orchards, vineyards, and groves.

CX15 EQUIPPED WITH THREE DECK RINGS
The CX15 is equipped with three deck rings, which are welded to the underside of the deck, just inside the outer circumference of blade travel. The deck rings help to limit the upward deflection of blades when the blades encounter immovable objects, such as stumps and set-fast rocks.
GEARCASES AND BLADE HOLDERS PROVIDE BETTER PERFORMANCE
THE JOHN DEERE GEARBOXES:
Large output shaft
Precision forged bevel gears
RE-ENGINEERED GEARCASES AND BLADE HOLDERS PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING:
Faster blade-tip speed
FLEX-WING CONSTANT-VELOCITY (CV) DRIVELINE IS EASY TO ATTACH BENEFITS
Lock-slide collar, included on all John Deeres drivelines, helps the attachment to the tractor using your hands on the driveline and not on the collar.
Professional seals on the cross kits allow for a lubrication interval up to 50 hours.
Grease zerks in the cap cross kits provide easy access for field lubrication.
Large, dimpled floating disks reduce wear and improve the grease retention.
Precision spherical ball-and-socket bearings distribute loading evenly and provide a long life and high performance.
A lightweight driveline with a lock-slide collar makes it fast and easy to attach.
Gearcases are provided with oil-level dipsticks.
Spring-loaded check-valve vents are provided to release any air pressure that might build up within the gearcase and to keep the rotary cutter deck free of oil that would otherwise spew out of permanently open vents.
All pivoting points that would benefit from greasing are provided with grease zerks. Wing hinges in particular are provided with individual grease zerks. It is important to note that these points require greasing infrequently; lubrication is for protection against seizing, not wear.
CX GROUND-CONTROL SUSPENSION
CX Series Flex-Wing Rotary Cutters feature ground-control suspension, which is unique in the industry.
This suspension includes a heavy-duty axle with six wheels (five-wheel and three-wheel assemblies for the CX15 3.1-m [10-ft] model) and air springs with shock absorbers on all four-wheel assemblies.
Shock absorbers provide a smooth ride for road travel and for hard and rough pastures, roadsides, etc. The shock-cushioning ability of the CX suspension is in a class by itself and contributes greatly to long, trouble-free operation of the machine.
Center-section air springs typically carry 90 psi of air pressure. Wing-section air springs typically carry 60 psi of air pressure.
All of the CX models are also available with springs and shock absorbers.
CONTINUOUS AND GREASEABLE WING-FRAME HINGES
Center sections and wing sections are connected via 2.5-cm (1-in.) diameter continuous hinge pins. Hinge bushings are constructed of 15.2-cm (6-in.) long forged-steel segments and are greaseable to prevent hinge pins from seizing:
The HX15 uses eight hinge bushing segments per side.
The CX15 uses 12 hinge bushing segments per side, for a continuous hinge (front to back), providing superior resistance to the wear and tear caused by commercial usage.
TIGHT TURNS CAN BE PERFORMED
Hitches have a narrow profile and are 57.2 cm (22.5 in.) wide to allow a very tight turning radius, even when the tractor is equipped with dual wheels.
TRANSPORT LOCK OFFERS A SAFE WING-UP POSITION
A transport lock flips over the lift cylinder for backup to the hydraulics when transporting or servicing the cutter.
A wing lock is provided for additional safety during transporting or servicing. Additionally, the wing locks are spring-loaded so they can unfold against gravity on slopes up to five degrees.
HYDRAULIC HEIGHT LEVELING SYSTEM MAKES CUTTER LEVELING EASY AND SAFE
The HX15, CX15, HX20, and CX20 come standard with an industry-exclusive hydraulically-operated height leveling system with a swing-away parking stand that makes raising and lowering the cutter easy and safe. In addition, a manual-implement jack is in base equipment, so hitch leveling can also be adjusted without hydraulics. With this addition, the cutter will remain in the same position for long periods of time.
3.1-M (10 FT) FLEX-WING WEIGHT BOX
The CX15 is available as a 3.1-m (10-ft) Flex-Wing Rotary Cutter with a 15.2-cm (6-in.) blade overlap by removing the left wing and adding a weight box.
The weight box hinges to the center deck and bolts to the anchor bracket in place of the left wing.
Weight box is shipped factory-filled with concrete.
John Deere is so confident in the reliability of the gearbox that rotary cutters come with a 5-year limited gearbox warranty.
