R Series Disc Mowers
John Deere Disc Mowers are designed with speed in mind. Hook up is easy—a Quik-Coupler is available on the three larger models. To transport, with the optional hydraulic tilt cylinder, simply engage tractor hydraulics and the cutterbar swings up and locks into place. In the field, these disc mowers give you lots of protection. The multi V-belt drive can absorb sudden shock loads, plus the drive line is protected by a slip clutch (standard equipment). If you should catch a fence post or other immovable obstruction, the cutterbar has a "break-a-way latch" that lets the mower swing back to limit damage. These disk mowers are also designed for fast repairs. And if a disc is damaged, the affected quill assembly can be removed and replaced.
