Mowing should be clean so as not to break the stems (allowing faster regrowth and limiting disease development), raking and baling must be very gentle to limit the loss of leaves. Hay is well suited for cultivation in arid areas, as long as its quality is not threatened by rain.
With the new Max Cut CLAAS mower bar, we can now offer you a disc mower having the same quality cut as a sickle bar mower, used historically in the US or in our regions.
The new Max Cut Claas cutter bar allows better coverage between the disks and higher speed, meaning a clean cut without damaging the stems.
This cutterbar has the double advantage of having a very high working speed (up to 20km / h in alfalfa), and needing very little maintenance thanks to its design and very robust parts.

- Mowers from 8m to 10,70m wide
Very large farms can opt for mowers from 8m to 10,70m wide (Disco 8400 and Disco 1100), combined with a tractor from the CLAAS Axion 800 - 900 range and between 180 and 300HP (link to Claas tractors), which will allow you to break productivity records! (Up to 15 hectares per hour)

To increase the drying speed hence a reduction in the time between mowing and baling forage, ICS has adopted the use of conditioners. Beyond reducing the time for baling, this technique also allows a second cut for some forage such as alfalfa. For alfalfa, we only recommend the roller conditioner systems which maintain feed quality without loss of leaves.
