Lely Splendimo mowers have a low power requirement and save on fuel costs. Thanks to at least 20% less fuel consumption, you save an average of 1 litre of fuel per hectare. No other mower on the market can achieve that. The unique modular cutter bar forms the basis for these savings.

We have developed a new cutter bar especially for trailed mowers used in challenging conditions. You can now benefit from a low power requirement and high output plus a number of extra elements that improve convenience.

The revolutionary new cutter bar

Quick Switch obstacle safety

Fitted with Quick Switch obstacle safety, the Splendimo mower is even better equipped to cope with obstructions out in the field. While the break-away protective device ensures that the mower shifts to the rear upon encountering an obstacle, Quick Switch protects the cutter bar itself against obstructions.

Thanks to a six-pin shear-bolt safety device, when a mower encounters an obstacle the only thing that breaks is the pin ring mounted directly under the mower disc. This limits the damage to just the ring, which is quick and inexpensive to replace.

Larger mower discs

For extra capacity and even higher output, we have also adapted and enlarged the mower discs on the new cutter bar.


Unlike the other Splendimo models, the new cutter bar is based on oil rather than grease. This considerably increases the number of mowing hours and reduces the maintenance required.



Furthermore, it offers you the same convenience and performance as the modular cutter bar that is used for all other Splendimo models.

Low power requirement

The cutter bar is formed from universal mowing units that are directly powered by a spline 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 friction losses.

This explains the low power requirement and reduced fuel consumption of the Splendimo mowers. Needless to say, wider working widths result in even greater energy savings.

High output

To deliver a 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 by almost 180⁰ in the crop and creates more space between the discs to stimulate good crop throughput.

Flexible for extra convenience

The mowing units are constructed with a clockwise or anticlockwise direction of rotation and connecting pieces. To withstand the considerable pressure during mowing, the various units are held together by a torque bar.

Various working widths

The modular design means that the Splendimo mower is available in a range of working widths and models. Thanks to the wide variety of mowing units, the direction of rotation and the main drive, there is an ideal Splendimo mower for every type of crop and soil which makes the Splendimo a very accessible mower for the entire agricultural sector.

Rapid maintenance

As with all other Lely machines, the cutter bar is made from as few individual components as possible which, in combination with the modular design, minimises any damage. If maintenance should nevertheless be necessary, the various units can be easily repaired or replaced. This helps to keep your repair costs down.

Furthermore, the oil remains on the gears rather than dripping down to one side of the bar – even when operating at extreme working angles. Each mowing unit has its own reserve of oil and durable seals to guarantee this convenient functionality.

To benefit from a unique and user-friendly technology which delivers high output and fuel savings without compromising on power, ask the dealer for more information.


The best harvest is obtained by mowing at the right time. This is how you determine the energy, nutrients and structure of the crops based on your animals’ feed requirements. With our mowers, you can be sure of the lowest possible power requirements combined with the highest possible capacity.
