Third Generation ProCut Rotary Cutters - Radium Engineering

PROCUT

2015 sees the rollout of Radium Engineering’s third generation Rotary Cutters: new models featuring a host of new features to improve functionality and versatility.  The Generation III ProCut Rotary Cutters received a complete overhaul while retaining the basic principles that have made them so successful. The Radium design team enhanced the ergonomics and cosmetic appearances and also focussed on the cutting and drive line systems, making it vital for determining the quality of the crop.

The new blade system incorporates the principles of the Schulte Rotary Cutters: their tried and tested blades and blade bolts increases the longevity and performance of the machine. The newly designed ultra-heavy duty spinner plates increases the blade movement whilst decreasing stresses on the drive line.

Radium Engineering introduced a higher blade tip speed for a cleaner, more effective cut. It is powered by imported, extra heavy duty gearboxes with high torque and power ratings. This will supersede the output power rating of the average tractor used in front of the differently sized machines.

The new PTO shafts are oversized with pre-torqued and self-adjusting slip-clutches to ensure the correct tension is always applied to the clutches. This ensures accurate slipping and prevents any damages to the gearbox.

New safety chains in the front and the rear of the machine stop foreign objects from exiting the working zone and causing damage to the tractor. It also reduces incidents that can result in injury to bystanders. The new safety chain system allows the machine to be operated in both forward and backward operations for bush clearing and applications where front mounted 3-point hitches are applicable.  New hitches have been installed to fit all category II hitches. A new floating system has been incorporated that works in conjunction with the new trailing wheels and height control system, ensuring a constant and even cut.

  • Ultra robust frame and body construction keeps the deck of the machine rigid while holding the drive line and blade mechanisms in place, while keeping the operator safe from any flying objects.
  • Detachable deflector plates is inserted below the deck around the blade cutting systems which in turn holds the material for a greater period which increased mulching effect
  • Adjustable hitches are mounted on an independent frame and allows the operator to move the hitches up to 150mm off centre.
  • Floating hitch keeps the machine straight and level and independent from the tractors top link to follow the terrain more constantly and evenly.
  • Heavy duty drive line comprises of pre-torqued, self-adjusting PTO slip clutches coupled on to imported heavy duty gearboxes to make for a low maintenance solution without human error.
  • Blades are strengthened through a hardening process and then shot peened to introduce compressive surface stresses over the entire length of the blade, which enhances durability and extends fatigue life of the blade.
  • Bolts has an exclusive pentagon anti-rotational resistance where the blade fastens to the jumper pans.
  • Deck ring is fitted between the blades and the deck which stops the blades rising when obstacles are encountered and also helps with material flow.
