HX15 FLEX-WING ROTARY CUTTER
CHOOSE VALUE. CHOOSE PERFORMANCE. CHOOSE JOHN DEERE.
At first glance, different brands of rotary cutters can look a lot alike. Thats not surprising a rotary cutter is simple machine driveshaft, gearbox, spinning blades. But the stresses rotary cutters take as they work across a field are anything but simple. Twisting, vibration, and impact stresses attack the frame, the hitch, the drives, the wheels, and the gearbox.
All these stresses are why you should buy a rotary cutter based on design, rather than price. Various brands of rotary cutters may look similar, but youll find the performance and reliability are dramatically different.
All rotary cutters come standard with front and rear deflectors to stop or deflect objects hit by the spinning blades. Front and rear safety chains that deflect flying debris, yet let uncut material move easily into the cutter, also come standard.
Choose the optional front rubber deflector, and rear steel deflector to reduce dust when cutting in dry conditions. Plus, these solid deflectors hold clippings within the cutting chamber creating a mulching effect.
John Deere rotary cutters lead the way with innovative design, superior performance, and proven durability. Valuable features are included such as the Double-Decker design and Max Flow cutting chamber, which 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 larger, more powerful gearboxes, redesigned blade holders, and updated constant-velocity (CV) drivelines (special to the flex-wing models).
Here are situations when a rotary cutter is needed:
Clipping pastures encourages grass growth, optimizing on 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 is essential in no-till and minimum-till fields.
Shredding stalks such as cotton, corn, and milo speeds up decomposition.
Clearing out brush is easy.
Use a rotary cutter to control undergrowth and grass in orchards, vineyards, and groves.

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.
