Trailblazer PTO

Pitmanless Double Bar Trail Mower

Trailblazer PTO


Kosch Company offers two models of the Trailblazer pitmanless double bar mower.The MDP16 has a 9-foot front sickle bar with a trailing 7-foot sickle bar. The MDP18 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 has been improved by using a constant velocity PTO shaft to run the rear sickle drive. Belt shields will no longer be getting in the way. Cutting knives are available with top serrated or under serrated sections to meet your cutting requirements.

The heart of the Trailblazer 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.
