Trailblazer Hydro

Hydraulic Double Bar Trail Mower

MDP Hydro


Kosch Company offers two models of the Trailblazer Hydro pitmanless double bar mower. The MDP.HYD.16 has a 9-foot front sickle bar with a trailing 7-foot sickle bar. The MDP.HYD.18 has two 9-foot bars.

These units are engineered and manufactured to perform in rough uneven terrain that is common in native grass hay producing areas. The pitmanless design gives extended maintenance-free field hours. Down time and maintenance costs are reduced by reduction in the number of moving parts. Rear bar vision is unobstructed with no cross over drive systems. The dual hydraulic pump provides hydraulic power to each sickle bar. All PTO shafts have been eliminated. Heat build-up has been kept to a minimum with the use of a hydraulic cooler provided with each machine. Cutting knives are available with top serrated or under serrated sections to meet your cutting requirements.

The heart of the Trailblazer Hydro is the Sch Pro-Drive Knife Drive. This drive has absolute linear knifehead movement with no loss of stroke and is nearly maintenance free. The drive runs quiet because all moving parts are always in rotation

  • The Kosch Trailblazer mower worked well for us. The uniformity of the stubble was as good as I’ve ever seen, even in the wiregrass and buffalograss. The customer support was real good. They knew what you were talking about and the parts were in the mailbox in a couple of days.–DARRIN UTTECHT, UTTECHT FARMS, WOONSOCKET, SD, 605-796-4816
