PELLA, Iowa – Vermeer introduced its new line of 10-series small trailed mowers for hay and forage producers seeking proficient cutting, simplicity and ease of use. The TM610/TM710/TM810 trailed mowers feature the built-in protection of a rubber torsion suspension for smooth mowing performance in many conditions, including rough and uneven terrain.
“The 10-series trailed mowers are for operators who want the power and performance of modern trailed mowers, but don’t quite need the size, mowing capacity and horsepower requirements of larger models,” said Vermeer Product Manager Josh Vrieze. “Hay producers deal with so many different crops and field conditions, and these trailed mowers can give them enough mowing capacity to get the job done.”
The TM610/TM710/TM810 trailed mowers give operators three sizes to choose from with 8.1 feet, 9.2 feet or 10.5 feet(2.5 m, 2.8 m or 3.2 m) cutting widths. Simplicity runs throughout all three models. The hookup procedure is straightforward — after the hitch, PTO and hydraulics are connected, it’s ready to go to the field. Toolless adjustments allow users to set the suspension between fields. The Quick-Clip blade retention system lives up to its name. Horsepower requirements (50 horsepower [37.3 kW]) are an average 20% lower than comparable 3-point disc mowers.
“The features on 10-series trailed mowers are designed to make the mowing process more efficient,” said Vrieze. The trail to better mowing starts here.
