Trailblazer PTO: Hydraulic Double Bar Trail Mower

Kosch Manufacturing 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, which is common in native grass hay-producing areas. The pitmanless design gives extended maintenance-free field hours. Downtime and maintenance costs are reduced by a 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.
