Hesston Mower PT7

In addition, each of the new Razor Edge 1300 Series mower conditioners is fitted with the Razor Edge cutter bar, which has a spur gear layout to provide a thin profile and close cutting without tilting the header to minimize scalping, limiting dirt and debris in the crop, and optimizing feed value for the farmer. Scrapers on the cutter bar also contribute to the cleanliness of the cutter bar by cleaning mud and debris away. The cutter bar is also designed in a modular manner, allowing each gear assembly and neighboring idler gear to be replaced independently without disassembling the complete cutter bar. Counter-rotating discs increase cut quality while reducing crop striping on the cutting surface. This article focuses on the Hesston Mower PT7

Performance and Fuel Economy

From the 5609 PTO, 70 horsepower boosted the 1366 engine rpm to 17-1800 rpm. The vibration was quite minimal once 1366 was revved up to 540 rpm, which was in keeping with the vehicle’s heavy-duty box-beam frame and header design. According to the operator, there was no discernible bogging as 1366 cut through the thick, wet grass when the cutter was articulated to the tractor’s right, lowered, and started at a comfortable 2.5 mph rate.

After moving up a gear range and then another, the 5609/1366 combination on the Hesston M-F could cut as quickly as the operator could endure the field circumstances in their current position. There are no signs of crop stripping, which is vital in assisting with quick plant renewal, and the mower did not clog at any point throughout our investigation. Though the circumstances in the field where haying was such that posts and stumps were not a problem, 1366 is equipped with a spring-loaded breakaway system that enables the cutter bar to release and swing back if such obstructions are encountered during the haying process.

Design, Functionality, and Quality

The Razor Bar cutter bar is a Hesston trademarked design that employs six 24.5″ diameter slimline discs to give a precise cut with less scalping than other cutter bars. Additionally, the design enables the removal of each gear assembly and adjacent idler for servicing without the need to disassemble the whole cutter bar, which would be both expensive and time-consuming.

Additionally, since each module has its reservoir of gear grease, it is rated for usage in slope situations up to 30 degrees, which is a significant advantage over previous designs. 540 or 1000 rpm are available for the PTO, and 1366 is equipped with a slip clutch to safeguard the driveline and an overrunning clutch to protect the operator and others nearby.

Precise Components

Twelve-degree cutter blades are free-swinging and reversible, and they can slice through hay at speeds of up to 176 mph and 3000 rpm, depending on the model. Eighteen-degree blades might be used to get more lift and a more precise cut.

While the Hesston Mower PT7 discs are cutting, the rolls โ€“ the conditioners โ€“ are working to raise the overall value of the harvest. Hesston provides a variety of possibilities in this regard. In situations where it is necessary for the plant stem to be crimped along its length in order for the drying time to be comparable to that of the leaves, rubber-on-steel is an excellent alternative. Steel-on-steel in a herringbone pattern may give long-lasting sturdiness while also spreading agricultural material equally throughout the breadth of the roll in various commercial applications.

Steel-on-steel construction is also the most common solution for alfalfa. Rubber-on-rubber crushing, which may be done in a herringbone pattern, can give better crushing conditioning while reducing plant scuffing. As a result, spoke conditioners push crop against a conditioning panel, scuffing away the waxy layer and shortening the drying period. The next step is to use TiCor reinforced rubber tire rollers, which provide protection against pebbles and other foreign objects while also gently conditioning and conditioning the stems without hurting the leaves. With so many alternatives available. The Hesston M-F Mower PT7 Accomplishes this.
