Major Disc Mower

Disc Mower

The MAJOR Disc Mower has been designed to ensure you get a professional quality, clean cut every time. This machine allows a single operator to mount the mower onto the tractor quickly and easily without assistance.

The heavy duty headstock and frame are designed for extra strength while the machine is working and during transport. The cutting bar is produced by Comer and is fully serviceable from the top. Spare parts are readily available.

A grass board is included as standard. There is a spring loaded pulley tensioner to give consistent tautness and reduce wear and tear on the belts. The galvanised folding canopy allows easy access to the machine to perform routine maintenance.

  • 4mm heavy duty blades
  • Heavy duty PTO shaft with overrun
  • Easyfit topping skids
  • Parallel linkage on the MAJOR disc mower gives the bed a flatlift when mowing on headlands

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.

A reason we got the Major Cyclone mower is because it’s tough. We bought it for the staff to tidy up pastures and doing the topping. You can be rough with it and it’ll just push the roughness to one side and just kee ...

Tom Grant, Grant Farms, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

We’ve got mixed soil on the 90-acre Hereford beef farm. One side of the land is fairly good, but then the other half of the farm always needs work. You need something that can take the tough work. It can’t be flimsy; ...
