The cutter bar of the Rotex, well profiled and low thickness block, was realised with gears in an oil bath made from high resistance steel, strongly protected by anti-wear slides made from special steel with boron/manganese and by baffles in the knife overlap zones. The highly aggressive profiled discs are made from special steel. The profile of the bar allows better penetration in all types of forage, even if thick and flattened, making it easier to pass through without clogging. Rotex are available with normal-rotating discs, recommended for high and thick forage, or with counter-rotating discs, recommended for low and dense forage as in mountain zones.
The rear mounted disc mowers Rotex TSB with adjustable frame are available in the versions with 5, 6 or 7 discs. The frame is transversal adjustable for perfect adaptation to every type of tractor. Coupling to the pulling vehicle is of the maximum simplicity and the regulation of the distance between the machine and the wheel of the tractor is perfect in order to take maximum advantage of all the potential width of the cutter bar. The balancing of the cutting equipment occurs by means of a practical and well tested system of springs and tie independent rods that allow perfect adaptation to the ground in every type of use, with different morphologies of the terrain and with whatever crops the machines are used. The hydraulic displacement of the cutting equipment allows regulating its inclination both during "working" operations and "transfer" remaining comfortably seated in the driver’s seat of the tractor, simply by operating the distributor lever. The Rotex TSB can be used with angles of inclination ranging from 90° upwards to 35° downwards. The gearbox with the gears in an oil bath is made from spheroidal graphite cast iron to obtain excellent resistance to stress during work and transfer. The disc-holding flanges with torque limiting device guarantee total protection of the cutting equipment in the event of violent impact of the discs at work with stones or any foreign bodies. The quick release system for knives allows the replacement of the knives without using any wrench.
