  • 18-45 HP Tractor with 540 PTO rpm



Easy to Maneuver Deck
  • The round-back deck design on the RC20 Series Rotary Cutter enables easy maneuvering into tight corners and around trees, fences, and other hard-to-reach areas

Chain or Rubber Deck Deflectors
  • The front deck and deflector support are flush with the deck on the RC20 Series Rotary Cutters
    This allows water and debris an unrestricted exit off the top of the deck
    • Rubber or chain on the front
    • Metal or chain on the rear

Adjustable Cutting Height
  • Adjusting the cutting height is easy
  • Along with adjusting a tractor's three-point linkage, simply move the support bar to the desired cutting height
  • The RC20 Series Rotary Cutters go as low as 1.5 in. or as high as 9 in.

Balanced Blade
  • There is one standard blade pan for all four sizes of the RC20 Series Rotary Cutters
  • The blade pan is stamped instead of fabricated and is statically balanced to reduce vibration
  • The blade bar is thicker for added durability

Reversible Hitch
  • The lower hitching point on the RC20 Series Rotary Cutter accommodates a reversible front hitch for smaller or older tractors

Lower Lip increases Durability and Strength
  • The RC20 Series Rotary Cutters have a lower lip (Z-profile), which extends from the skid shoes to where the apron opens up
  • This Z-profile increases the overall durability and strength of the rotary cutter

Puncture-Resistent Rear Tire
  • Choose a laminated or solid rubber rear tire for the RC20 Series Rotary Cutter
  • Both are puncture resistant
  • The laminated tire is longer lasting and provides more support when working in sandy or lighter soil conditions

iMatch Compatible
  • The iMatch system converts a tractor's 3-point hitch to fixed hooks and attaching points for a super-quick connection
  • (The iMatch hitch is sold separately)
