RCP30 Series Parallel Arm Cutters

RCP30 Series Parallel Arm Cutters

Available Models

RCP3060, RCPM3060

Description

The RCP3060 offers a horizontal cutting reach of 18' 10", 3' longer than the RCP26 Series model. The 30 Series is great for those roadsides that want a manicured look further down the ditch or want to remain a little further away from the soggy banks of the pond.

Land Pride's Hydraulic Parallel Arm Rotary Cutters provide excellent cutting performances on ditch banks and other sloping areas adjacent to rights-of-way, lakes, ponds, or streams. They work equally as well in and around areas of restricted access such as over or under fences, guardrails, low overhanging branches, tree limbs and hedges. These units perform well in tall grass and will easily cut through standing brush up to 2" in diameter. Optional gauge wheels allow the cutter deck to float over undulations without having to monitor terrain conditions.

Features and Benefits

FEATURES BENEFITS
Tractor HP Range Designed for 95-175 HP tractor with minimum weight of 12,000 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why are my cutter blades locking up?
Answer

Ensure that your cutter is being engaged and disengaged at an idle speed. Check that the tractor has a hydraulic engage oil clutch. Blades may also need to be reshimmed. The mower blades need to be less than ¾” deflection.

What kind of weights do I need for the optional weight hanger assembly?
Answer

Standard suitcase weights. Make sure they are the same brand as the weight hanger assembly installed. There are six weight hanger assembly options available which include: John Deere, Case, IH, Case/IH, New Holland and Kubota.

What is causing my cutter to vibrate?
Answer

Your blades may need to be weighed, and checked for damage. The dishpan also needs to be checked for damage (from a forklift, stump, etc.)

What caused the tailwheel support to fail?
Answer

Lowering the cutter to the ground too fast can cause the tailwheel support to fail. The rate of drop on some tractors can be adjusted. Backing up when the cutter is in a ditch can also cause the tailwheel support to fail.

What caused the driveline to bend or twist?
Answer

Either the slip clutch was never slipped, or a grade 5 or grade 8 bolt was used in place of the grade 2 bolt specified.

What are check chains?
Answer

Check chains are used when you want to return the mower down to the same height of cut every time.

How often should I replace my skid shoes?
Answer

Check all skid shoes regularly. Skid shoes should be replaced when the material thickness is less than 1/8” at any point.

How much does the hydraulic reservoir hold and how often should the filter be changed?
Answer
  • The hydraulic reservoir has a capacity of 35 gallons. Hydraulic fluid should be added as needed until full mark is reached on the dipstick.
  • The 10 micron hydraulic filter should be replaced at a minimum of every 2 years.
How do I drain the oil in the gearbox?
Answer

Remove the vent plug (if on top) and use a suction gun to pull the oil out. If the vent is on the side or back, the top cover can be removed and then the oil can be removed with the suction gun.
