The double reciprocating scythe will quickly cut vegetation of any height or density up to 2½cm (1”) thick and is ideal for managing large areas of wildflower meadows and grasses for haymaking.
The anti-clog serrated blades will cut through vegetation up to 1” diameter, and excel at cutting tall grass and wildflowers. For woody material including brambles and first year saplings the duplex laser scythe is recommended.
The duplex scythe cutter bar comprises two blades which both move from side to side, in opposite directions. This helps to reduce vibration and enables the scythe to cut faster than the standard scythe.
The duplex cutter bar has self adjusting spring-loaded tensioners which means less adjustment and maintenance than with the standard scythe, and riveted guards on the lower teeth that stop vegetation clogging the cutter bar.
The scythe makes a single scissor-like cut at the base of the vegetation, leaving the material whole. This is what makes the scythe the best tool for cutting long grass for haymaking and for cutting wildflowers.
Because the cutter bar is located out at the front of the machine it can get into areas that other mowers can’t, such as under fences, round the base of trees, at the edge of water, and so on.
They are also very economical to run as the power unit should never be on more than one-quarter throttle so fuel consumption is very low.
