All-welded deck Deck is 100% welded which offers additional strength and keeps moisture and dirt from
getting trapped in tight places, which hastens rust over time.
3/16” Deck thickness Heavy gauge material aids in resisting damage from debris hitting the underside of the deck.

4 Plate slip-clutch Protects drivelines and gearboxes by slipping clutches rather than twisting the driveline when
impacts are encountered.
Easy to Grease drivelines Drivelines have access holes to grease the U-joints of the driveline, as well as holes to
grease the inner profiles.
Hinged wing sections Allow you to shape the cutter to the job. Ideal for rough ground where hillsides, ditches and
hollows can cause uneven cutting.
1” Solid hinge rods Larger diameter hinge rod gives greater strength to the cutter from front to rear, and in the
hinge area itself.
Wing hydraulics Wing hydraulics are plumbed independently to allow the user to raise one wing at a time,
which can aid in going through narrow spaces.
Mechanical winch (optional) Mechanical winch aids in folding the cutter in the event of hydraulic failure.
Wing transport locks Transport wing locks securely hold wings in the folded position in case of hydraulic failure.
Slow moving vehicle sign Standard equipment to make operating conditions safer.
Enclosed front to rear dual
leveling rods
Dual leveling rods enable the cutter to pull equally on the rear axle during uneven terrain vs.
just pulling from one side of the front hitch.
