Tractor-mounted disc mower launch

GRASSLAND 2000 saw Kverneland launch the Taarup TA 2000 range of tractor mounted disc mowers. Comprising four models with working widths of 1.6m, 2m, 2.4m and 2.8m, all employ the companys SuperCut blades which are claimed to reduce operating costs by up to 50% when compared with other types.

The mowers cutterbars are an all-welded construction having a large oil capacity for cool running.

Other features include a non-stop auto-reset break back system and a low power requirement. The 2.8m version for example, weighs in at 465kg and requires 50hp to operate, says Kverneland.

For transport the cutting decks fold vertically in line with the tractor.

Prices start at £3155 for the 1.6m TA 2016 model.

It was not all big kit at Grassland 2000. Kverneland introduced the TA 2000 series mowers.
