Cyclone Mower

Durability, reliability and efficiency are the key elements of the award-winning Cyclone Mower / Rotary shredder. From traditional pasture topping to clearing crop stubble, these machines are equally at home in set-aside, forestry margin management, and sensitive environmental scrubland control.

These heavy duty shredders are designed for the most rugged working environments with reduced power consumption, outperforming equivalent-sized flail mowers in every way.

Its patented ‘blender’ double-chop blade system requires 25% less HP than a flail mower, slashing at least 25% off upfront fuel costs. The Major Cyclone is the mower of choice for the toughest jobs.

High-performance Strenx™ 700 MC structural steel makes these mowers strong, while Hardox® 450 abrasion-resistant steel for the undersole discs ensures a long wear life. Combined with hot-dip galvanisation to EN ISO 1461:2009 specifications, the Cyclone is guaranteed impact tough.

For increased flexibility, an adjustable side-shift unit which provides an additional 30cm cutting width on either side is available as an option.

David Henderson, Isle of Arann, Scotland

Our Cyclone has been a great purchase because I can use it for mulching shrub as well as topping and general grassland maintenance and we can use a much smaller tractor now.
