Our small drum mowers, manufactured by BellonMit of Italy, are designed for the small-framed tractors so popular with today’s landowner. Designed specifically for the lighter weight, narrower width, and smaller 3 point hitch of subcompact and compact tractors, these mowers will cut faster and with fewer problems than other options.
The design of a drum mower is mechanically much simpler than sickle bar mowers. For nearly all 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 3 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.
While other manufacturers continue to use belts between the main PTO and the drum gearbox, all of our drum mowers use a durable shaft-driven system. Shaft drive means no belts to come off, slip, or break at the most inconvenient times.
Bellon has been building these drum mowers for over 20 years. They have a proven design that has demonstrated its durability through years of use. Every drum is factory tested to be dynamically balanced, reducing vibration and prolonging machine life. When you buy this mower, you can count on a quality machine that will give you many years of trouble-free use.
