Description

Galfre’s line of large drum mowers is designed for hay producers who want higher production rates and fewer problems in the field. With these machines you get high speed cutting and conditioning all in one machine, and with very few moving parts.

The design of a drum mower is mechanically much simpler than sickle bars, disc mowers, discbines, and haybines. 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.

In the past, the only drawback of drum mowers was that they will windrow the cut crop into a tight pile that does not dry well. If you can imagine the cut grass stacked like a row of fallen dominoes, you have the idea of how conventional drum mowers windrow hay. This tight windrow cannot be directly baled because the underside will never dry. It needs to be spread out with a tedder to dry, and then raked into windrows.

Galfre solved this problem with the introduction of their patent-pending Black Hole conditioning system. A series of teeth have been added to the neck of the cutter drum. These teeth provide a flailing action that breaks stems and ejects the hay out the back of the mower, spreading and fluffing it in the process. The result is a faster drydown time that rivals complicated and expensive haybines and discbines. The Black hole system has no moving parts, and options are available for more or less flailing action depending on the crop being cut.

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. A simple breakaway system ensures that if you accidentally hit an unmovable object, the mower will swing rearward, avoiding damage. Simply back up to reset and you can continue mowing.

These drum mowers use only 4 inexpensive, reversible blades per drum. They can be easily sharpened or simply replaced when dull. Replacing a blade takes only a few seconds. The only tool needed is stored right on the mower, so it is always with you. No bolts, no time consuming adjustments. Just change and go.

Galfre has added other innovations to the drum mower design as well. While other manufacturers continue to use belts between the main PTO and the drum gearbox, Galfre mowers use a durable shaft-driven system. Shaft drive means no belts to come off, slip, or break at the most inconvenient times. Galfre also supports the main drum gearbox centrally, so that weight is evenly distributed between the two drums, instead of supporting on the end like other brands. Central support is easier to adjust and the drums better follow ground contours, leading to a better cut.

Galfre has been in the agricultural equipment business for over 60 years. Their drum mowers have been in service in the US since the 70’s, with many of those original units still in use today.   They have a proven design that has demonstrated its durability through years of use in the toughest conditions. Galfre’s manufacturing facilities use state of the art robotic welding and CNC machining for maximum accuracy and repeatability. Every drum is factory tested to be dynamically balanced, reducing vibration and prolonging machine life.   When you buy Galfre hay equipment, you can count on a quality machine that will give you many years of trouble-free use.
