Case IH Extends Disc Mower Conditioner Line For Small Acreages

The Case IH DCX91 is a seven-disc, side-pull rotary mower conditioner designed with small acreage operations in mind. With its 9 foot-2-inch cutting width and 14 reversible, swing-away knives that spin at 3,000 rpm, the DCX91 can be used in a variety of crop and field conditions, including alfalfa or grass hay.

Rugged, independent rotary disc modules simplify service, repair and replacement and also provide for long life and reliability. Bearings, gears and lubricant for each disc can be serviced individually. The DCX91 is available with mechanical or optional hydraulic header tilt for control of cutting height and angle.

With hydraulic header tilt, the cutting angle can be adjusted on the go from 2 to 10 degrees. Vertical and radial flotation is regulated via adjustable springs, depending on the operator’s crop and cutting needs. The conditioner, which uses 90-inch, intermeshing spiral, rubber-on-rubber rolls, quickly and efficiently process cut crops.

No tools are needed to adjust the windrow shields and swathgate, so the operator can change the windrow or swath from 36 to 72 inches, depending on the crop, field conditions and equipment requirements. The DCX91 requires a minimum of a 65 PTO hp tractor with 540 rpm PTO.
