Features

75" cutting width.

The Ibex TL75 drum mower is a sturdy, low maintenance machine designed for larger compact tractors. Simple and durable, it is easy to use and will give you years of trouble-free service. With a 75” cutting width and fast cutting speeds, this mower will outperform other mower designs in the tough conditions of a hay field.

Designed for 40-60 HP tractors.

The TL75 drum mower is designed for tractors in the 40-60 horsepower range. Designed with fewer moving parts than disc and sickle bar mowers, these machines will cut faster and with fewer problems than other options.

Designed to cut faster with fewer problems.

The design of a drum mower is mechanically much simpler than sickle bar and disc mowers. For nearly all hay cutting applications, it is a superior design that cuts faster with fewer problems. The drum mower design, which has been very prominent in Europe for decades, is finally gaining popularity here in the US, and rightly so.

Easy to maintain and durable.

A drum mower has only two large counter-rotating drums. These drums create a great deal of inertia, helping you to power through the thickest hay conditions. The drums are powered from above by a simple gearbox, not with multiple small gears from below like a disc mower. These drum mowers use only four inexpensive, reversible blades per drum. They can be easily sharpened or simply replaced when dull. Replacing a blade is a simple process. This simplicity in design makes them easier to use and maintain, while also making them more durable.

Uses a shaft-driven system--no belts.

While other manufacturers continue to use belts between the main PTO and the drum gearbox, all of our drum mowers use a durable shaft-driven system. Shaft drive means no belts to come off, slip, or break at the most inconvenient times.

No hydraulics required.

The TL75 also has a simple system for transport – no hydraulics required. Just release the breakaway system, manually swing the mower to the rear, and drop a pin in place to hold it there.
