Ibex TX45 Compact Drum Mower





Perfectly suited for small-framed tractors.

The Ibex TX45 Compact Drum Mower is perfectly suited for the small-framed tractors which are so popular with today’s landowner. Designed specifically for the lighter weight, narrower width, and smaller 3-point hitch of subcompact and compact tractors, the Ibex TX45 will cut faster and with fewer problems than other mowers on the market.

Simply designed, yet durable in tough conditions.

The drum mower design, which has been very prominent in Europe for decades, is finally gaining popularity here in the US, and rightly so. This design is mechanically much simpler than that of a sickle bar mower. A drum mower has only two large counter-rotating drums which 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. Furthermore, these drum mowers use only 4 inexpensive, reversible blades per drum which can be easily sharpened or simply replaced when dull. This simple, superior design makes them easy to use and maintain, while also making them durable enough to tackle the tough conditions of a hay field.

Shaft-driven, thus no belts to break.

Another superior feature of the Ibex TX45 Compact Drum Mower is its durable shaft-driven system. Other manufacturers continue to use belts between the main PTO and the drum gearbox which can result in unnecessary mechanical issues. Shaft drive means no belts to come off, slip, or break at the most inconvenient times.

Guaranteed to give years of trouble-free performance.

The manufacturer of Ibex drum mowers, situated in the Italian province of Padova, has been fabricating drum mowers for over 20 years. They have a proven design that has demonstrated its durability through years of use. Every drum is factory tested to be dynamically balanced, reducing vibration and prolonging machine life. Because of this exceptional attention to detail, the Ibex TX45 Compact Drum Mower is a high-quality machine that will give you years of trouble-free performance.
