Description

The RC5510 & RCM5510 Series Rotary Cutters are single-wing versions of our RC5515 and RCM5515 cutters and provide excellent cutting performance on gently sloping or slightly contoured right-of ways, roadsides, pastures, set-aside-acres, or for residue in row crop fields. The 10’ cutting width, 2" to 14" cutting height and ability to cut weeds and brush make them well suited for these applications.

This Rotary Cutter utilizes a pull-type selfleveling clevis hitch for attachment to 50-250 HP tractors. The RC55 Series offers various safety guard selections making them an excellent choice for state and municipal mowing applications. Productivity, product life, and product serviceability are significantly improved with the smooth-top feature. The smooth top deck greatly reduces topside grass accumulation or makes any accumulated clipping removal from the deck a breeze.
