Features

CLEANER AND CLOSER CUTTING
Get the cleanest and closest cut yet with the MowMax™ II PLUS true modular cutterbar. Faster knife tip speed, a slimmer cutterbar profile, and reshaped rock guards improve cut quality while providing a 30% lower cutting height.

TIME-SAVING INNOVATIONS
The standard QuickMax™ knife-change system and ShockPRO™ hubs are designed to save you hassle when you’re making hay. For additional peace of mind, the cutterbar is backed by a 36-month warranty.

PIVOT TO GREATER PRODUCTIVITY
Whether you need a nimble mower to enter tight places or big capacity for wide-open spaces, four center-pivot models, with cut widths from 10- to 16-feet wide, are designed and built with pride in New Holland, Pennsylvania.

FROM WIDE SWATHS TO NARROW WINDROWS
Choose between the chevron intermeshing rubber or steel rolls, or the LeaningEdge™ flail tine conditioning system to fit your needs. Enhanced swath control surfaces behind the conditioning system result in neater-looking swaths with improved dry down.

 

MOWMAX™ II PLUS DISC CUTTERBAR

A CUT ABOVE THE REST
Haymaking season is no time for delays. That’s why we pioneered our true modular disc cutterbar decades ago. From this original design through today, the legendary New Holland disc cutterbar has been known for strength, reliability, and easy service. The latest design, the ultra-reliable MowMax™ II PLUS disc cutterbar, is no exception. Its commercial-grade durability and high-capacity, clean-cutting design will save you time and money.

LAWN-LIKE CUT, COMMERCIAL-GRADE DURABILITY
The MowMax II PLUS true modular cutterbar delivers our cleanest and closest cut yet. It’s similar to the cutterbar featured on Durabine™ PLUS disc headers for Speedrower® PLUS self-propelled windrowers, which means you get commercial-grade durability and performance. Plus, you’ll find a variety of enhancements over our previous generation.
• Longer knives extend each module’s cutting diameter by nearly an inch and turn at a faster tip speed compared to previous models.
• Reshaped rock guards provide better crop-to-knife engagement
• To improve cutting in light or late-season crops, the profile of the cutterbar was lowered by bringing the discs closer to the cutterbar with new low profile ShockPRO™ hubs.
• In combination with the longer knives, this design is more productive in down and tangled crops as cutting height is lowered over 30%, leaving less uncut crop behind.

SAVE TIME WITH THE QUICKMAX™ KNIFE-CHANGE SYSTEM
Time is precious when you’re making hay. To save you time and keep you cutting clean, the patented QuickMax™ knife-change system is standard on all Discbine® PLUS models. The system lets you quickly change knives with discs at a 45-degree angle to the cutterbar. In just seconds, you can change knives in just one-half cutterbar rotation, saving you time compared to traditional bolted knives and other competitive quick-change systems. Knife-lock technology assures that each knife is retained in the most difficult conditions. Best of all, the system does not require the use of special knives—it works with all approved New Holland knives.

3-YEAR MOWMAX CUTTERBAR WARRANTY
Every Discbine PLUS gives you peace of mind provided by 36 months of cutterbar warranty coverage, which includes one full year of base factory warranty plus two additional years of cutterbar warranty. You’re backed by the best in the business.

SET THE HEIGHT YOU LIKE
It’s quick and easy to set cutting height using the travel-limiting pin. For the highest cut height, insert the pin into the rearmost hole. For the lowest setting, remove the pin and store it on the cylinder to allow the head to move through its full tilt range. For the best performance, operate headland lift in the float position, and the head tips back to adapt to terrain.

ADJUSTABLE-HEIGHT SKID SHOE KIT
Grass hay producers will appreciate adjustable height skid shoes that protect grass stands by increasing cutting heights, while still permitting low cutting in down and tangled crops.
