Maxam 2500

The 2500IV is an incredibly versatile mower that will handle all the mowing and topping duties on the farm. They are very robust and easy to use, ideal for unskilled staff. Even when the mowing gets heavy, they do not block or make a mess.

The Maxam 2500IV is a tough mower capable of mowing everything from hay crops to bull rushes and all topping jobs. Also ideal for Kaikuyu control rather than using a mulcher or a topper with mulching blades. This is because it can mow low without scalping. The long skids underneath the cutting drums keep the blades at an accurate distance from the ground whereas toppers inevitably scalp the ground when trying to cut low enough to be effective on Kaikuyu grass. This makes Maxam mowers the ultimate topping mowers.

The 2500IV mower and Wilter spreader combination is unique worldwide. The clean cut grass is fed from the cutting drums into the Wilter tynes, which toss the grass so any clumps are broken up and the heaviest grass lands on top for the most exposure to the elements for quick and even wilting. The wilting time of crops conditioned and spread by the Wilter is faster than any other system including mower conditioners.

Dairy farmers often top after the cows have grazed the strip, and the full spread of toppings decompose quickly, allowing the grass to regrow. Another common practice is mowing the grass before the strip is fed to the cows, and farmers have found that leaving the mown grass in rows minimises trampling and spoilage from dung. Simply remove the Wilter tynes to leave tidy windrows, much like a feed pad.
