TRASH-FAN - The equipment for continuous cleaning of the machine surface is placed in the middle of the machine so as to achieve the best possible effect during work, as well as compactness during transport.

Perfect surface contouring is provided thanks to the oscillation of the wings from -15° to +45° and a stepping axle. No terrain is an obstacle to your work.

Extreme resistance due the armoured plating at the bottom of the rotary cutter and zinc coating of the machine. Protection provided by the rotor housing, friction and overrunning clutch.


Agronomic advantages of the machine

  1. Quality mulching of grassland and vegetal remnants on arable land.
  2. High crumbling effect of the machine = easy and fast disintegration of mulched material.
  3. Even spreading of mulched material.
  4. Easy embedding of mulched vegetal residue = higher quality of machine labour for soil cultivation.
  1. Effective combating of the European corn borer due to the elimination of dormancy conditions = saving costs on chemical repellents and an increase of the yield by reducing damage levels.
  2. Use the machine within the conventional farming system (after ploughing) and in the minimization system.
  3. Extending and maintaining production areas due to the easy mulching of bushes growing along the edges of fields and pastures.
  4. Meeting required agricultural deadlines = the design of the machine allows for quality production even at high speeds.

Why mulching

Stubble management
To achieve quality stubble cultivation that enables a fast decay of the after-harvest residue, growth of seeds that fell out from the previous harvest and an excellent preparation of the seedbed for following crops, quality mulching of vegetal residue is important. Swift decay of vegetal residue is one of the basic foundations for establishing future growth. Vegetal residue cut to a length of 3–5 cm decay faster and all of the further working steps are easier with better results, which means lower costs and a higher yield.


The time between harvest and field preparation for winter crops is shortened due to increasingly unpredictable weather conditions. That is why the daily output is more important than ever. It is this feature that truly makes every single model of the Mulcher machine range excel.

REDUCTION OF FUEL COSTS

The combine can leave a higher stubble field allowing for higher speeds that save up to 40 % of fuel consumption.

Increasing combine output

Combines can leave a higher stubble field, which means the processing of a smaller amount of material = lower combine wear. The stubble field will be further processed by the BEDNAR rotary cutter, which allows for an increase of up to 50 % of the combine output.

SOIL PROTECTION

Quality disintegration of maize remnants eliminates a portion of the european corn borer larvae, and it prevents the dormant hibernation of those remaining. this system saves costs on further chemical treatments and provides you with the ideal conditions for a higher yield.

Safety and protection

High level of protection, high level of user comfort
An important component of all BEDNAR rotary cutters is that a large amount of the designs components provide safe machine operation and high user comfort level. The simple construction characterises the MO, MZ and MM rotary cutters, this design is the perfect foundation for a long lifespan of the machine. This is extended even further by the zinc-coating on the surface. This provides excellent shielding against the elements and acidic vegetal juices.

Not only is every rotor fitted with safety components, but also the propeller shaft between the rotary cutter and tractor has the same equipment. The only exception is the single-rotor rotary cutter which is protected by a friction coupling against overloading, and also against a mass transfer of force during after-running. Additionally every rotor is protected with a case at the bottom section, which enables you to operate the machine at a very low working height.

GEAR BOX PROTECTION

The BEDNAR rotary cutter gear components are protected against damage (collisions, e. g. with stones etc.) with the help of a friction coupling that automatically halts all gear processes. The propeller shaft of each rotor is equipped with a friction coupling.

TRACTOR P. T. O. PROTECTION

The MZ and MM rotary cutter propeller shaft comes equipped with a freewheel clutch (MO-friction coupling) that prevents the transfer of the twist moment to the tractor from the back, and this in turn protects the P. T. O. from damage caused by a sudden reduction in rpm of the tractor engine.

DIRECT GREASING = EASY MAINTENANCE

All p.t.o. shafts on the bednar rotary cutters are equipped with direct greasing. the lubrication point is placed in the centre of the p.t.o., from which point the lubricant can reach the whole of the p.t.o. this results in comfortable, fast and easy maintenance.

Blade system / technical data

Easy blade exchange on one or two levels
Not only ground for a high output but also for an exceptionally good cutting ability that is always by formed two pairs of wrought blades on each rotor. Long term experience of producing rotary cutters has shown us that it is not always suitable to use the same blade type for different kinds of plant species and vegetal residue. And that is the reason why you can use the Mulcher machines (with the exception of the MO type) with 2 types of cutting blades and 2 ways of positioning.

This ensures the same quality of work in varying conditions. It is possible to use 4 paddle-shaped blades on one working level for permanent herbage. On the other hand it is more suitable to use the appropriately named maize blades on two levels for vegetal residue on arable land. The grass and maize blades can be easily exchanged. Adjusting the position of the blade level is also facilitated with the help of spacers. Allowing you to easily adjust mulching for the required crop.

GRASS BLADES

Paddle-shaped blades positioned ‘crosswise’ at the same level are suitable for grassland mulching. Paddleshaped blades create suction, which lifts the crushed growth leftovers after tractor wheels have driven over it, and then mulches it. Grass blades can be easily re-adjusted to maize blades and vice versa.

 

MAIZE BLADES

The combination of the paddleshaped blades positioned on the underlying level with the straight blades on the upper level a double disintegration of persistent stems, e.g. maize, sunflower and rape. These are cut on two levels simultaneously. Maize blades can be easily re-adjusted to grass blades and vice versa.

 

Mulcher

Five-rotor rotary cutter

Machines for hard labour
The triple-rotor model the BEDNAR Mulcher MZ 4500 and 6000 are amongst the most popular rotary cutters of their kind in Europe. Working widths 4,6 and 6 m guarantee a high daily output at low operation costs. The rugged construction of the body with a zinc-coated surface enables the maximum deployment of the machine in the most challenging farming conditions.

High resistance and safety
One of the biggest advantages of the BEDNAR rotary cutters is the complete zinc-coating of the machine bodies, this significantly prolongs the machines lifespan. Machine bodies are submerged in a zinc bath, which allows for complete protection of the external surface area and the internal plate sections. This way the machine is shielded against vegetal juices, climatic impact, stone missiles, that can quickly cause damage the paint and lead rusting. These threats are eliminated with zinc-coated surfaces as a result of the permeation of the zinc and the plate.

FRONT COUNTER BLADE

To increase the crumbling effect of the front parts of the mulching zone, they have been equipped with counter blades that complete the cutting of the mulched material. The quality of the mulched material is therefore increased.

Spreading plates

Perfect machine work is ensured by plates that evenly spread the mulched material over the field. vegetal clusters are not formed, etc.

IRONING

Rotary cutters are fitted with exchangeable iron plates preventing damage. furthermore every rotor is protected with a rotor case, which allows for it to work at a very low heights off the field.

WALKING AXLE

A central walking axle helps to overcome uneven surfaces whilst maintaining working height. Thanks to the axle the machine is able to operate smoothly even on extremely rough fields and pastures.

Even function in a vertical position

The wings of the MZ and the MM rotary cutters work on a swinging arm and perfectly track unevenness of mulched fields from -15º to +45º. The machine can be used with the side positioned at +45º therefore can be used to clean road sides and along the edges of pastures and fields.

Easily adjustable mulching height

The mulching height of the mz and the mm machine is set centrally with the help of hydro clips on the hydraulic cylinder conduit of the machine’s central axle. adjustment of the setting is done swiftly and with ease.
