Winged Roller Mower (Three Point Linkage)

The Swift winged roller mower delivers the all-important after-cut appearance with ease. The three-point linkage system allows close attachment to the tractor unit for easier towing and safer road transport. The combination of a 60mm blade overlap with high blade tip speeds, consistently delivers a professional, striped finish. The Swift range of roller mowers are engineered to deliver an impeccable cut in the best way possible.

All Swift roller mowers are built using Strenx™ 700 MC high-performance steel and hot-dip galvanised to EN ISO 1461:2009 specifications. These standard features on MAJOR products double machine lifespan and enable a high trade-in value.

The wings lock into a neat 1.9m transport width allowing for easy access through tight spaces. The LED road lighting kit ensures safe and high visibility movement between sites.

  • Two blade systems in one: a simple adjustment converts the blade from rigid blade to swinging blade
  • Walterscheid PTO drive shafts fitted as standard
  • Simple cutting height adjustment from 10-130mm for versatile and year-round mowing
  • 60mm blade overlap for a pristine finish
  • Sealed internal roller bearings for total protection against moisture, soil and debris
  • Full-length rollers follow the ground contours and limits scalping
  • 3-year MAJOR warranty
