The DM5000 Series floatation system protects the complete machine from possible shock loads. When an obstacle is encountered the cutterbar will pivot upward and over the obstacle, then automatically return once the obstacle has been passed.
DM5000 series machines provide for 17 degrees of sideward adaption. This generates many benefits while working on hillsides or when aligning the unit on headlands.
The swivel hitch gearbox is fixed to the mainframe in order to minimize movement during operation, yet it provides unlimited rotational movement between the machine and the tractor making it easier to perform sharp turns.
With three blades per disc Kubota mowers are constantly cutting. This means a third less load per blade; an even load on the drive; smoother power usage; and produces a neat, cleanly cut stubble.
Each steel blade is precisely angled to immediately discharge the cut crop upwards by both air flow and mechanical action.
Fully Welded Cutterbar
The fully welded Kubota cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a very rigid and strong design, ensuring very high level of durability. The cutterbar is designed for low maintenance and quiet operation. Operators will appreciate the low noise of the cutterbar during long busy days. The long curved gear wheels run smoothly in oil and provide efficient power transfer.
Express Quick Change of Knives
DM5000 Series mowers can be fitted with the 'Express' system for quick and easy changing of knives. Simply place the lever around the bolt, release the spring by turning the lever, and the knife is ready to be replaced with a new one.
DM5000 series offers a secure and convenient transport solution while still providing excellent road visibility. To make transportation width as narrow as possible, the side guards can be folded upwards. This reduces the transport width for DM5032 to only 9'10" while in the field it cuts a full 10'6". The transport width for DM5040 is reduced to 12'5" while in field it cuts 13'1".
