Our E Series drum mowers are designed for customers who need a sturdy, low maintenance machine, but at a more affordable price point. These mowers replace the more durable, but expensive, PTO shaft drive of our other models with a simple belt driven system. For the hobby farmer, this mower will still provide years of trouble-free service. With a 53” cutting width and fast cutting speeds, the Ibex TS53E mower will outperform other mower designs in the tough conditions of a hay field.
PERFECTLY SUITED FOR SMALL-FRAMED TRACTORS
The Ibex TS53E drum mower is designed for the compact tractors so popular with today’s small farms. Designed with fewer moving parts than disc and sickle bar mowers, these machines will cut faster and with fewer problems than other options.
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.
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 three 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.
EASY TO TRANSPORT
The Ibex TS53E also has a simple system for transport – no hydraulics required. Just release the breakaway system, manually swing the mower to the rear, and set the transport lock bar in place to hold it there.
This baler is manufactured in China under the watchful eye of Ibex Equipment, a US based equipment company.
