HX6 & HX7 Rotary Cutters

John Deere

December 6, 2012 - Equipment

John Deere’s HX6 and HX7 rotary cutters offer new features such as a deeper cutting chamber and double-deck design that improve overall performance. These two rotary cutters replace the JD609 and JD709 machines and deliver heavy-duty mowing performance.

Roberto De La Garza, product specialist for John Deere, said the new models offer more aggressive cutting and deliver better shredding action.

John Deere's rotary cutters have a variable cutting height of two to nine inches and come in two cutting widths: six feet and seven feet. The gearbox is rated at 150 continuous and 210 peak hp, and the blade pan inclusion offers more protection to the gearbox. The rotary cutters have the ability to cut materials up to three inches in diameter.

The machines have a three-point clevis-type hitch and have been improved for easier height adjustment. "A forward tip adjustment allows the cutter to be tilted forward slightly, so most of the cutting occurs in the front while the shredding action takes place toward the rear of the machine," De La Garza said.

The HX6 and HX7 offer the industry-exclusive double-deck design, which consists of a domed upper deck that prevents water and debris from collecting on top of the unit.

Expected ship date for the new HX6 and HX7 rotary cutters will be January 2, 2013.
