Lely Splendimo mowers have a low power requirement and save on fuel costs. This can soon mount up, because a 20% lower power requirement saves you 1 litre of fuel per hectare, guaranteed. No other mower on the market can achieve that.
The unique modular cutter bar forms the basis for these savings. It contains far fewer gears than other cutter bars. This ensures that you save fuel and also generate a high output with your machine at the same time.
Low power requirement
The cutter bar is formed from universal mowing units that are directly powered by a hexagonal shaft. The drive shaft runs through the centre of all of the mower discs and each mowing unit is powered by its own shaft. As a result, each mowing unit automatically only consumes the power that it needs at any particular time.
Therefore, there are no friction losses during mowing. After all, there are no separate gear transmissions as in conventional cutter bars, which suffer friction losses of at least 5%. The hexagonal shaft completely eliminates these.
This explains the low power requirement and reduced fuel consumption of Splendimo mowers. Needless to say, wider working widths result in even greater energy savings.
To deliver high output, the cutter bar and its components have been designed so that the centre of the mower discs is close to the front of the cutter bar. This enables the mower discs to rotate through almost 180 degrees in the crop. It also creates more space between the discs.
