Kubota's DM5032 mower ensures productive mowing with a 10'6" working width, fully-welded cutterbar and trailed design for excellent cooperation with low horsepower tractors.
User-Friendly Trailed Pull-Type Disc Mower: Kubota's DM5000 series are easy to operate and have low horsepower requirements. This in turn reduces fuel consumption by allowing the mowers to be used with smaller tractors. Due to Kubota's independent active suspension, the DM5000 series mowers have a remarkable ability to adapt to ground contours. This technology improves productivity, while also helping to protect the cutterbar from any unforeseen obstacles.
Active Suspension: DM5032 and DM5040 have an exceptional ability to adapt to field conditions. The active suspension ensures even pressure across the entire cutterbar while in rough conditions. With 1'2" of upward suspension and 9.3" of downward adaption, these machines ensure that the cutting discs are always positioned close to the ground. The DM5000 Series floatation system protects the complete machine from possible shock loads. When an obstacle is encountered the cutterbar will pivot upward and over the obstacle, then automatically return once the obstacle has been passed.
Lateral Flotation: DM5000 series machines provide for 17 degrees of sideward adaption. This generates many benefits while working on hillsides or when aligning the unit on headlands.
Swivel Hitch Gearbox: The swivel hitch gearbox is fixed to the mainframe in order to minimize movement during operation, yet it provides unlimited rotational movement between the machine and the tractor making it easier to perform sharp turns.
Three-Bladed Discs: With three blades per disc Kubota mowers are constantly cutting. This means a third less load per blade; an even load on the drive; smoother power usage; and produces a neat, cleanly cut stubble. Each steel blade is precisely angled to immediately discharge the cut crop upwards by both air flow and mechanical action.
Fully Welded Cutterbar: The fully welded Kubota cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a very rigid and strong design, ensuring very high level of durability. The cutterbar is designed for low maintenance and quiet operation. Operators will appreciate the low noise of the cutterbar during long busy days. The long curved gear wheels run smoothly in oil and provide efficient power transfer.
Express Quick Change of Knives: DM5000 Series mowers can be fitted with the 'Express' system for quick and easy changing of knives. Simply place the lever around the bolt, release the spring by turning the lever, and the knife is ready to be replaced with a new one.
Narrow Transport: DM5000 series offers a secure and convenient transport solution while still providing excellent road visibility. To make transportation width as narrow as possible, the side guards can be folded upwards. This reduces the transport width for DM5032 to only 9'10" while in the field it cuts a full 10'6". The transport width for DM5040 is reduced to 12'5" while in field it cuts 13'1".
