The Kubota DMC8036T and its left-hand drawbar, semi-swing conditioner are primed and ready to provide you with the precision you need, no matter what you’re cutting and conditioning! The DMC8036T features a cutting width of 11’ 6” and boasts ten discs and 30 blades to help you cover more ground. You’ll find that side-to-side adaptation and a protected cutter bar give the disc mower conditioner less wear and tear, making your investment worthwhile.
Utilizing centrifugal force is what makes the Kubota SemiSwing conditioner stand out among other conditioning systems. It offers an aggressive conditioning effect with excellent tine protection and virtually no wear and tear. The conditioner plate can be set in 3 positions, according to the required conditioning effect. Depending on crop conditions and the amount of crop you are cutting, the plate is easily adjusted to achieve the desired conditioning.
The complete mowing section, including the conditioner, is suspended independently from the main chassis by either two or four long adjustable suspension springs, allowing it to follow the field contour. If an obstacle is encountered in the field, the mowing section will lift up and backwards, protecting the cutterbar from damage. When the obstacle is passed, the mowing section automatically returns to the working position.
All models can be fitted with an optional easy-to-use wide spreading kit. This enables crop to be cut and spread in one operation, saving both time and resources. Best of all, changing from swathing to wide spreading is a one-man-job.
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.
The fully welded Kubota cutterbar with overlapping C-channels makes for a stiff and strong design, ensuring a high level of durability. The cutterbar’s design, with machined gears and large bearings along with low oil requirements, allows for a low working temperature for efficient oil cooling and lubrication of the entire cutterbar.
With three blades per disc, Kubota mowers are constantly cutting. This means a third less load per blade, an even load on the drive and smoother power usage – which produces an even, cleanly cut stubble. Each steel blade is precisely angled to immediately discharge the cut crop upwards by both air flow and mechanical action.
The long spring design allows for excellent ground following ability. In uneven fields, the mower is able to adapt +19.7"/-5.9" The suspension springs are fitted on the widest possible position of the mowing section to ensure even ground pressure. The weight on ground is stable and only approximately 88 -110 pounds on each side. The suspension arms are fitted between the mowing section and mainframe so when an obstacle is encountered, the mowing section moves backwards and upwards to allow the object to pass. The mower will automatically return to its working position once the obstacle is cleared.
