RC5020 Rotary Cutters


Available Models

RC5020, RCM5020


The heavy duty RC5020 and RCM5020 Series Rotary Cutters are designed and built by Land Pride to provide excellent cutting performance on gently sloping or slightly contoured right of ways, roadsides, pastures, setaside acres, or for residue in row crop fields. The 20’ cutting width, 2" to 14" cutting height and ability to cut weeds and brush up to 3" in diameter make them well suited for these applications. Both models offer pull-type self-leveling clevis hitches for attachment to 70-250 hp tractors. They also offer various safety guard selections making them an excellent choice for state and municipal mowing applications.
