Mzuri, British manufacturers of innovative agricultural equipment, have announced the launch of Razorback Auto-Level 550 – a vertical-axis rotary hedgecutter with revolutionary self-levelling Co-Pilot technology. It will be presented on Mzuri’s stand 3054 at this year’s Cereals event which is taking place on 14th and 15th June at Boothby Graffoe.
Delivering increased productivity, a superior finish and significant cost savings, Razorback Auto-Level 550 features a 1.5-metre-wide head with a SoftStart triple rotor and additional mulching blades and hydraulically controlled front hood and rear roller.
The unique design means the blades are in contact with the growth during their entire 360° cycle, awarding a much faster and cleaner cut and a superior mulching technique.
The rotary action and side deflectors ensure that the debris is efficiently contained by the hood with considerably less material throw onto the road or the tractor cab.
Razorback’s Auto-Level Co-Pilot technology ensures that the head and the main frame of the machine remain level at all times, irrespective of the tractor angle in relation to the undulating ground. This unique feature awards an exceptionally smooth finish regardless of the terrain, making for a more comfortable and trouble-free experience.
Operation is simple and precise thanks to Razorback’s electronic proportional controls which incorporate a 3-axis joystick. The main control box features rotor on/off, level sensitivity and Auto-Level Co-Pilot on/off functions.
With a 5.5 metre reach, Razorback is at home with all types of verge mowing and hedge cutting tasks, and can easily tackle two to three-year-old growth.
It allows users to top and side hedges in fewer passes compared with its conventional counterparts, leaving a highly professional finish at double the output.
A standard Razorback Auto-Level 550 machine retails at £28,480 and is expected to become available at the end of 2017. The specification includes the 1.5-metre-wide head complete with hydraulically controlled front hood and rear roller, Auto-Level Co-Pilot with electronic proportional controls and a fully independent hydraulic system with an oil cooler.
