Quick Hitch Compatability

  • MD3 disc mowers now have quick hitch compatibility to conveniently hook up and disconnect
  • Quick hitch capability is standard


Heavy-duty Model Features

Heavy-Duty MD73, MD83 AND MD93

  • Cutterbar shock protection standard
  • Handles most any crop condition, from wet field to downed crops
  • Built with heat-treated components to stand up to extreme conditions
  • Uses a close-coupled design for maximum ride stability, especially in tight turns​


Modular Cutterbar

  • Results in superior crop flow that reduces streaking
  • Ensures quick mowing
  • Heavy-duty frame and rugged canopy use a cantilevered design for smooth crop flow across cutterbar​


Quick Change Knives 

  • ​Reversible knife blades change quickly without raising the cutterbed
  • Knife bolts are located on top of the modular discs for easy access


Rotating Modular Knife Blades 

A rotating modular knife blade provides thorough and uniform crop cutting.

  • Each disc houses two knife blades
  • Blades rotate at 3,000 rpm
  • Disc hardware is specially designed and treated for extreme durability to resist abrasive conditions


Independent, Sealed and Self-Contained Modules Resist Damage

  • ​Short, independent splined driveshaft sections link modules
  • Shafts are made from alloy steel with roll-formed splines for strength and are hardened for added durability


Smooth-profile Discs

  • Lift crop into the cutting zone for plug-free mowing, provides a consistent swath for more even drying
  • Each disc is 3/16-in (4.8-mm)-thick and heat treated to resist damage
  • Discs are shielded by 1/4-in (6.4-mm)-thick by 8-in (203-mm)-wide skid shoe. The shape of skid shoes work with the tilt of the cutterbar to provide a wide range of mowing heights
  • The gearbox oil in modular cutting discs performs up to 200 hours between changes



  • MD73, MD83 and MD93 — engineered for ease of maintenance
  • Discs can be in any position when performing maintenance
  • If an object is struck during operation, a spring-loaded cutterbed breakaway latch releases
  • Greasable, sintered bushings ensure the cutterbar releases fully when the breakaway latch is activated
  • A heavy-duty, puncture-resistant curtain provides protection for operator and bystanders
  • High-stress components are protected from debris by T-seal washers and lip seals


Hassle-free Transport

When in the transport position, the MD73, MD83 and MD93 become compact packages with ride stability and plenty of ground clearance.

  • ​The cutterbar transport lock automatically engages for a secure hold
  • The cutterbar is spring-balanced from end to end: allows the mower to glide over uneven terrain smoothly and can be adjusted for all conditions.
  • The V-belt tension spring has an easily visible indicator for quick inspection of belt tension: changing belt tension is convenient with single-point adjustment and no shields to remove.
  • A tethered pin activates the flotation spring for cutting and is repositioned when using the parking stand
