The MAJOR TDR Rotary Gang Mowers lead the range of Roller Mowers with cutting widths of 4.9m and 6.1m. The patented three point pivot system allows the machine to glide over the ground contours eliminating scalping of the grass.
The heavy duty rollers are fitted with internal bearings and seals to prevent water and dust contamination ensuring life long protection. The twin blade system is enclosed within an aerofoil chamber and cut material is recycled and distributed evenly in the wake of the machine.
The blades are synchronised to rotate in opposite directions and overlap each other by 75mm to ensure a perfect finish every time. A simple spanner adjustment sets and locks the cutting height of the machine by raising or lowering the rollers. The cutting height can be adjusted from from 12mm to 150mm. As with all the MAJOR range ease of maintenance is paramount and the rear deck two stage lift allows simple maintenance to be carried out.
The slip clutch and overrun protection on the input PTO shaft coupled with the rubber buffer protection between each of the rotor gearboxes minimise damage to vital components. The machines wings can be folded up to a 90° angle giving TDR16000 and TDR20000 a transport width of 2.4m.
To ensure operator safety the wings auto-stop when raised and must be reset manually when lowered. This is an important feature when operating in public areas.
All moving parts are completely enclosed and the rollers prevent debris from escaping from the under the machine. The rear deck (MAJOR 8400GR) can be removed easily and be used independently of the wings giving the operator two machines in one. The optional electronic in-cab remote control system allows full independent use of each deck from the comfort of the tractor. This machine is widely used by local authorities, military grounds, sports clubs, parklands and airports to name a few.

I was sceptical at first what job the rotary blades would do at first compared to reels, but having seen the results elsewhere it was the machine for us. I particularly like the rollers at both front and rear which give a good levelling effect, but also produce nice stripes.
Our Major TDR Mower is fantastic. We used to use a sixteen foot mower, but this new Major is twenty foot and allows us get across the ground quicker. It’s easy to attach, simple to adjust the height of cut - depending on what type of grass we are cutting. It’s very heavy duty, built strong for the job, simple to maintain and follows the contours of the ground perfectly, so we don’t get any scalping. We cut around three thousand acres per year and the Major is well capable of handling that task. I’ve always loved my job and been very proud of my work, but this new Major mower leaves it with such a perfect, striped finish that I’m absolutely delighted with the result. It’s the same striping effect you would get with a cylinder mower, but far less costly.
