Building on years of technical know-how in the development of forage equipment Tanco have created a new triple mower system with front and rear cutting and conditioning widths of 8.9m and 9.8m.
The Tanco AUTOCUT front and rear triple mowers have been built from the ground up. Reimagining input ratios to deliver greater productivity, through improved weight distribution, horsepower and cutting widths.
Unique Front Mower and Conditioner
The AUTOCUT pull-type front mower features a patented rail system, with an effective pivot point just above the ground, this allows the mower to pivot 19° from front to back as it moves over the ground, ensuring the closest cut.
AUTOCUT FRONT MOWER // KEY FEATURES
Unique Rail SystemThe AUTOCUT pull-type front mower features a patented rail system, with an effective pivot point just above the ground, this allows the mower to pivot 19° from front to back as it moves over the ground, ensuring the closest cut.
850mm of Vertical TravelThe advanced AUTOCUT chassis allows simultaneous horizontal and vertical movement independent of the tractor's front linkage. 850mm of vertical travel ensures the front mower follows the most severe hollows and throughs.
16° Transverse MovementThe front mower achieves 16° of transverse movement independent of the tractor linkage, giving the M3 exceptional movement in undulating ground.
AUTOCUT M9 & M10
8.9m Cutting Width starting from just 180HP
The AUTOCUT's trailed system distributes the weight between the tractor and mower wheels, this greatly reduces stresses on the tractor and mower.
The improved weight distribution and flotation of the rear mower beds results in a reduced horsepower requirement and fuel consumption. The result is a 8.9m cutting widths being achieved with 180HP+ tractor.
AUTOCUT REAR MOWER // KEY FEATURES
Weight DistributionThe AUTOCUT's trailed chassis carries the rear mower beds distributing the weight between the tractor and mower wheels. This greatly reduces stresses on the tractor and mower The reduced rolling resistance further improves fuel efficiency and reduces soil compaction.
Reduced Horsepower & Fuel RequirementThe improved flotation of the mower beds results in a reduced horsepower requirement and fuel consumption. The result is the M9 (8.9m cutting width) can achieve optimal performance with 180HP+ tractors.
On Road TransportThe mower beds fold onto the rear chassis with a transport height of just 2 meters, significantly less compared with a butterfly unit with similar cutting widths (where transport heights can be in the region of 3m to 4m). This has the advantage of offering increased visibility to the rear and offering a lower centre of gravity reducing sway and allowing for optimised transport speeds.
Heavy Duty COMER Cutter BarThe 56 Series Heavy Duty COMER cutter bar is formed from a single piece of stamped metal. 25mm gear drive train and shear hub technology is used throughout with 4.2 ltrs [M3] 4.8 ltrs [M9] & 5.5 ltrs [M10] oil capacity. . Reversible Quick-Attach blades rotate 360 degrees in their holders, the blades can rotate freely in the event of contact with an obstruction, meaning blades can be used on the reverse side.
Shear Hub TechnologyEach module is protected by Shear Hub Technology. In the event of a collision, a pre- defined break-point within the hub, shears. The damaged mower disc is disengaged from the drive train with an axial bolt holding the disc in place. This avoids the load spike being transferred along the drive train to other modules significantly reducing damage.
Drive Train - 25mm Gears25mm gears run in a single line along the mower bed drive train, minimising friction while maximising power transfer.
ConditionerThe V-shaped steel tine swings against a hardox stop. A slight hook catches the crop to throw it. A single bolt connects the tine to the hanger, making replacement simple. AUTOCUT Conditioners have speed settings of 850 / 1000 rpm.
COMER Gearboxes & PTOsA direct drive transmission system gives straight drivelines resulting in little to no power loss to the cutter bed. . The COMER VP PTO drive shafts improves movement during use and feature an external grease point with seals allowing lubrication without separating the shafts.
Active SteeringThe AUTOCUT's 'Active Steering' feature allows for a fast and slow steering response depending on the requirement. A steering angle of up to 40° allows the mower beds to move directly to the next row. While during road use, when the mower beds are folded, the slower response ensures the rear mowers follow the line of the tractor, allowing the driver to focus on the road ahead.
"I was impressed from the word go."
James Fitzpatrick, CORK
We got a demo of the new mower through our local dealers, Ryalls. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was impressed from the word go. The trailed chassis and axle gives the advantage of distributing the weight between the tractor and the mower wheels. The improved flotation of the mower beds results in a reduced horsepower requirement and fuel consumption. This has made a huge difference to the way in which I carry out my business.
We originally used to run two tractors with two rear side mounted mowers and moved to one tractor with a front mower and a rear side mounted before progressing to the TANCO triple. We are now mowing 50% more acres/hr and using 23%-25% less fuel’ with the AUTOCUT, meaning the cost savings are already being felt.
We are really happy with how the well the TANCO mower is performing. Upgrading was a no brainer.
