Mowers for Solar Farms / Panels
Rotary mowers with swing arm
The swinging arm is designed to make mowing between and under solar panels easier whilst avoiding damage to the stand. When the rubber surround of the swing arm touches the trunk, the wheel rotates and deflects the swing arm and its cutting blade away from the obstacle.
The parallelogram headstock with manual, or if desired hydraulic adjustment allows for a very large offset of the machine.
Mechanic-hydraulic feeler
Upon request all swing arm mowers can be fitted with a hydraulic feeler arm mechanism.
