A modern design mower by Paddock™ incorporating a swing arm mounted UFO blade, best suited for fence line mowing, cutting around trees such as in orchards and vineyards. Built to withstand the riggers of the Australian environment with quality components and heavy-duty construction, this PTO tractor mower will be the envy of your neighbours.
~~ Now with safety clutch fitted to PTO shaft (not shown in photos) ~~
Paddock™ developed the perfect swing arm mower to make mowing around tree trunks, hedges and vines a breeze without damaging the obstacle in question. The unit utilises a rubber wheel on a UFO swing arm which rotates and deflects the swinging arm and its cutting blade away from any obstacles it contacts. As soon as the spring-ram loaded swinging arm passes the obstacle, it automatically returns to its original position. The simple design allows for mowing under fences and right up to trees and posts from the comfort of your tractor.
This implement is designed for tractors running a 540 RPM PTO speed which is the most common for Cat I & II tractors. It's ideally suited for tractors up to 50hp although higher HP tractors can be used thanks to the inclusion of a safety slip clutch in the PTO shaft. Modifications to the linkage and pins may be required for higher horsepower tractors.
To utilise the hydraulic side shift functionality, your tractor will need to be fitted with rear hydraulic connections. Side shifting the mower allows it to run closer to fence lines and trees without needing to run the tractor in compromising locations.The hydraulic side shift functionality does not need to be used for this implement to operate and users can leave this disconnected if they wish.
Finishing style mowers are considered to deliver one of the best quality finishes as they use a system of multiple shorter horizontal blades which rotate at high RPM. Unlike a slasher with longer blades, the finishing mower delivers a cleaner cut and is better at mulching the clippings as it works. Finishing mowers are fantastic for high traffic areas, public use areas and general tidy finish work. As the unit is PTO driven, the tractors high hp engine still delivers ample power to undertake cutting in heavily grassed areas where other mowers might bog down.

Excellent product and saves so much time around trees.
I needed this years ago. Perfect for getting in around the rows in my small vineyard, keeps everything cleaner and easier to access. Great quality and functional too.
