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.

Owenie McGowan, Owenie McGowan, Drystock Farmer, Co Leitrim, Ireland

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 keep cutting.

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; it has to be able to take a bit of punishment. The sheet metal is folded forward and the hot-dip galvanising makes the Major Cyclone real strong and robust – this machine is going to last! The Cyclone does a good job on the heavier stuff that you need to clean off. On the other paddocks where cows have grazed, the Cyclone can get in and fly along on higher forward speed and just clean the rest like standard topping. So we can do both jobs on one machine.
