Slasher

The MAJOR Grass Slasher is a single rotor machine ideally suited for cutting rough pastures, forestry ridges, grass verges, heathland, rushes and heather.

The blade system is capable of tackling material of up to 30mm in diameter. Each machine is fitted with two heavy duty swinging blades fitted to a compound blade beam.

Protection is given to the tractor by using a shearbolt in the PTO shaft. The cutting height is set by adjusting the two side skids. The 609SL model features a galvanised finish.

Testimonials


We run a flock of 500 sheep alongside a medium sized beef enterprise on the Isle of Arann in Scotland. Rushes are our biggest challenge so we were in the market for a flail mower but our dealer, Hamilton Brothers, suggested we try a Major Cyclone Mower. The mower was brought over on demonstration and once we saw it working we asked Hamilton Brothers to leave it with us. A flail mower in an equivalent working width would require far more power than we're putting into the Cyclone so there is a fair fuel saving there. It's just a very strong, reliable and cost effective mower. If we had bought a flail mower and seen this after we'd have been annoyed!

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.
