DM50 Series float spring tension adjustment  

Set the float spring to get maximum performance during operation. Adjust properly so the down pressure does not damage crop stubble as the skid shoes pass through the field.

The DM50 Series Disc Mower park stand and parking arm work together to transfer the mower’s weight to the cutterbar while in the parked position. This makes the attachment process easier, saving time and frustration.

The transport lock system is a simple mechanical system that saves time and ensures safety. Use the rope system to raise the transport lock, engage selective control valve (SCV) 1 to bring the cutterbar into the transport position, and release rope system to lock for transport.  

Cutterbar serviceability is easier on the DM50 Series Disc Mowers. Remove the oval-shaped disc(s) with only four bolts per disc. The shear hub assembly can be serviced by removing the remaining four bolts. This will save time and oil replacement costs by not splitting the entire cutterbar to replace the sheared hubs as required in previous models. 

Models DM5050 and DM5060 are Category 1 and 2 Quik-Hitch compatible. Model DM5070 is Category 2 and Quik-Hitch compatible. This efficiency provides the operator greater productivity regardless of the model being used.
