Claas of America introduces its Disco 250, 290, 2650 and 3050 disc mowers.
The 250 and 290 are designed so individual drive units can be removed from mowing bars. The 250's cutting width is 8'; the 290 has a 9'4" cutting width.
The heavy-duty 2650 and 3050 each has a defined shear point above the satellite pinion gear. That allows the shaft to snap without damaging a cutterbar while a hex bolt in the pinion shaft prevents the disc from flying away. The 2650 has an 8'6" cutting width; the 3050's is 9'10".
