DISC MOWER: GET READY FOR NEXT SEASON
Helpful tips and tricks to get your Disc Mower prepared to operate at it’s maximum capacity through the season.
Contact your local Vicon dealer to arrange a preseason service or health check on your Vicon Mower to ensure it delivers the best performance and output.
Make sure all PTO drive lines and joints are clean and lubricated.
Check gearbox oil level – Top up if required.
Check the cutter bar oil level – Top up if required.
Check all mower discs and replace if damaged.
Check the conditioning rotor for missing or damaged fingers.
Check all mower knives and replace if worn or damaged.
Check wear skids and counter knives for damage and wear.
Vicon mower knives have precision rolled cutting edges instead of ground or formed edges. No steel was removed when sharpening the knives thus
ensuring a higher steel thickness exactly where it is required. Vicon knives are
“Super” strong and deliver a consistent performance even in the toughest conditions.
THE BENEFITS ARE:
Strong knives with high resistance against objects that last longer and remain sharp.
