Description

The RCP2660 and RCPM2660 Hydraulic Parallel Arm Rotary Cutters provide excellent cutting performances on ditch banks and other sloping areas adjacent to rights-of-way, lakes, ponds and streams. These units perform extremely well in tall grass and will easily cut through standing brush up to 2" in diameter. The optional gauge wheel package allows the cutter deck to float over undulations without having to constantly monitor terrain conditions.

The RCP2660 and RCPM2660 cutters are adapted for Category II or III 3-point hitch mounting on 75 to 150 HP tractors weighing 7000 lbs. or more. Pump and reservoir system require either 540 or 1000 RPM input. Depending on hydraulic configuration, the cutter drive and tractor need to be equipped with one to four hydraulic outlets to operate the cutter’s parallel arm and deck.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why are my cutter blades locking up?
Answer

Ensure that your cutter is being engaged and disengaged at an idle speed. Check that the tractor has a hydraulic engage oil clutch. Blades may also need to be reshimmed. The mower blades need to be less than ¾” deflection.

What kind of weights do I need for the optional weight hanger assembly?
Answer

Standard suitcase weights. Make sure they are the same brand as the weight hanger assembly installed. There are six weight hanger assembly options available which include: John Deere, Case, IH, Case/IH, New Holland and Kubota.

What is causing my cutter to vibrate?
Answer

Your blades may need to be weighed, and checked for damage. The dishpan also needs to be checked for damage (from a forklift, stump, etc.)

What caused the tailwheel support to fail?
Answer

Lowering the cutter to the ground too fast can cause the tailwheel support to fail. The rate of drop on some tractors can be adjusted. Backing up when the cutter is in a ditch can also cause the tailwheel support to fail.

What caused the driveline to bend or twist?
Answer

Either the slip clutch was never slipped, or a grade 5 or grade 8 bolt was used in place of the grade 2 bolt specified.

What are check chains?
Answer

Check chains are used when you want to return the mower down to the same height of cut every time.

How often should I replace my skid shoes?
Answer

Check all skid shoes regularly. Skid shoes should be replaced when the material thickness is less than 1/8” at any point.

How much does the hydraulic reservoir hold and how often should the filter be changed?
Answer
  • The hydraulic reservoir has a capacity of 35 gallons. Hydraulic fluid should be added as needed until full mark is reached on the dipstick.
  • The 10 micron hydraulic filter should be replaced at a minimum of every 2 years.
How do I drain the oil in the gearbox?
Answer

Remove the vent plug (if on top) and use a suction gun to pull the oil out. If the vent is on the side or back, the top cover can be removed and then the oil can be removed with the suction gun.
