The RCP2660 and RCPM2660 Hydraulic Parallel Arm Rotary Cutters provide excellent cutting performances on ditch banks and other sloping areas adjacent to rights-of-way, lakes, ponds and streams. These units perform extremely well in tall grass and will easily cut through standing brush up to 2" in diameter. The optional gauge wheel package allows the cutter deck to float over undulations without having to constantly monitor terrain conditions.
The RCP2660 and RCPM2660 cutters are adapted for Category II or III 3-point hitch mounting on 75 to 150 HP tractors weighing 7000 lbs. or more. Pump and reservoir system require either 540 or 1000 RPM input. Depending on hydraulic configuration, the cutter drive and tractor need to be equipped with one to four hydraulic outlets to operate the cutter’s parallel arm and deck.
Features and Benefits
|Tractor HP Range||Designed for 75-150 HP tractor with minimum weight of 8,000 lbs.|
|Gearbox HP Rating||150 HP|
|3 Point Design||Does not tie up a tractor. Three point hook up is easy to hook up and remove from tractor.|
|Cutter Deck Visibility||Visibility of the cutter deck is captured from the operator’s seat. Easy to see operation. Operator does not have to look behind.|
|Factory Assembled||Arrives ready for the customer, saves time and money. (Excluding fluids and hydraulic valve)|
|Grease Ports||All grease ports are easily accessible for servicing.|
|10’ Transport Width||Folds up close to the tractor. No weight brackets or decks hanging away from the tractor. Typically, not much wider than the tractor, which means safer transporting.|
|Parallel Arm Design||Three cylinders used in a parallel arm design allows any cylinder to be adjusted without changing the position of the others. Means less positioning.|
|Long Horizontal Reach RCP(M)2660 = 15’-6" (186") RCP(M)3060 = 18’-10" (226")||Good access for reaching vegetation far away from the tractor. Better access for reaching vegetation far away from the tractor.|
|Above Grade Vertical Reach RCP(M)2660 = 11’-5" (137") RCP(M)3060 = 13’-5" (161")||Good access for reaching up embankments and cutting low over hanging limbs. Better access for reaching up embankments and cutting low over hanging limbs.|
|Below Grade Reach RCP(M)2660 = 9’-1’ (109") RCP(M)3060 = 11’-0" (132")||Good access for reaching down embankments. Better access for reaching down embankments.|
|180 Degree Operating Tilt Arc||Cutter head can be positioned to reach different angles.|
|Cat. 2 & 3; 540 or 1000 RPM||Fits a wide variety of tractors.|
|35 Gallon Oil Reservoir||Large reservoir maintains optimum fluid temperatures and also serves as counterweight.|
|2” Cutting Capacity||Ideal for trimming brush.|
|High Blade Tip Speed||15,000 FPM tip speed means cleaner cutting.|
|Two Parking Stands||Easy and level storage, makes it easy for hooking to tractor.|
|In-line Filter||Cleans hydraulic fluid before it re-enters the reservoir.|
|Shut-off Valve||Permits maintenance with minimum oil loss.|
|Built-in Auxiliary Weight Rack on Left Side||Suitcase weights can be added to left side for balance. Able to choose the weight bracket to match various types of suitcase weights.|
|Oil Pressure Gauge||Easily monitor oil pressure for optimum performance of unit.|
|Hydraulic Breakaway||Allows the parallel arms to pivot backwards to avoid obstacles and to protect cutter deck and parallel arms. Parallel arms are pivoted back to normal operating position with the hydraulic breakaway cylinder.|
|Flow Control Valve||Compensates for various tractor hydraulic systems so proper hydraulic fluid pressure can be maintained. (Used only with solenoid control Option.)|
|Solenoid Controlled Cylinders||Allows cutter to be used on tractors with only two hydraulic duplex outlets. Response time is faster than tractor controls making it an excellent choice when frequent changes to deck position. (Used only on Solenoid Control and Independent Control Options)|
|Gauge Wheels Option||Deck floats on gauge wheels eliminating frequent deck positioning and vigilant watch for changes in ground contour under the tractor and deck.|
|Independent Control Option (Self-Contained Hydraulics)||Self contained hydraulic system eliminates the tractor/RCP hydraulic incompatibility. This option uses the RCP hydraulic system to operate the cutter. Tractor needs one set of hydraulics to operate the breakaway cylinder.|
