All mower conditioners of the 1060 series with central or side drawbar from 2.70m to 4.40 m become the 1061 series with the addition of numerous developments.
All 1060 series mowers with central or side drawbar from 2. 70m to 4.40 m, now transformed into series 1061, present numerous evolutions affecting the mowing quality, the comfort of use and the machine service life.
Among these developments, the most significant concern:
The integration of the OPTIDISC ELITE cutter bar for extra gain in cutting quality when mowing in difficult conditions, notably by a more regular cutting height crosswise.
The installation of the flexible side guards FlexProtect, designed to prevent deterioration during contact with an obstacle on plot borders.
The possibility to control the side guards hydraulically from the cabin.
The possibility for the driver to temporarily change the cutting height while on the move, in order to allow him to adapt to very heterogeneous situations (e.g. stony areas) or when changing plots.
A more modern style cladding on central drawbar models.
The entire range includes models with finger conditioners driven via a gearbox, roller models, as well as 3 models featuring a grouping device either with a belt or with hydraulically controlled swath shields.
