Kubota Tractor Australia  distributes Kubota tractors, mowers, excavators, engines and generators across Australia through a large network of dealers.

Krone hay equipment distributed by the company includes:

SafeCut Mower Shearpin System

The patented SafeCut system is designed to protect the cutterbar of all EasyCut mowers, excluding Cri roller conditioner machines. The system incorporates a shear pin, a special nut attached to the blade disc assembly and a pinion shaft that is threaded to suit the special nut.

During operation, if a disc strikes an object it will remain stationary momentarily, shearing the pin. By remaining stationary, the nut now acts on the threaded shaft and winds its way up the shaft enabling the disc to clear itself from the neighbouring discs that are still rotating.

A circlip at the top of the pinion shaft prevents the disc from flying off and causing any further damage. To resume mowing, the disc attached to the special nut is wound down using the special nut spanner supplied, and the old shear pin removed and replaced.

This system reduces downtime as well as costs and offers greater peace of mind when operating in adverse conditions.

  • The Float system ensures constant ground pressure even in undulating terrain
  • Compact yet robust build keeps the mower closer to the tractor, reducing overall weight and overhang

Big M 400 Self Propelled Mowers

  • Each rotor assembly is fitted with 8 castor wheels, 15 tine arms and 4 double tines per arm to ensure a clean sweep and high output
  • Maintenance-free DuraMax cam track carries a 3-year warranty and reduces maintenance time

Silage Wagons
