KS-5Z,KS-6ZT mowers

KS rear-mounted mowers are RIKO mowers, intended for mowing grass and undergrowth alongside roads, on water canal banks and elsewhere, where ordinary mowers cannot successfully and safely mow the vegetation. By replacing the cutting head with one of the additional attachments, the mower can also clean roadside ditches, clear snow with a snow cutter, and cut branches.

These mowers are mounted on the rear three-point hitch size 2 or 3 on an appropriate vehicle (especially tractors). These mowers are controlled by the driver in the vehicle.

KS mower protection mechanism

The mower is protected from mechanical damage when encountering an obstacle between the first and second arm with a hydraulic cylinder and hydraulic battery. The cutting head attachment moves away from the obstacle and returns to the original position by itself. The RIKOSLED tracking system is possible between the second arm and the cutting head, enabling automated tracking of uneven terrain.

Mounting on various vehicles

KS mowers can be mounted on the rear of various vehicles (especially tractors …) with a three-point hitch size 2 or 3. Stability during mowing is achieved by correct mounting on the three-point hitch, as well as optionally with additional counterweights on the left wheel rim. An advantage of KS mowers is that they can be quickly mounted or dismounted on the tractor! When finished using the mower, the support legs on the frame are lowered and the mower is set aside on a suitable straight surface.

Hydraulic system

KS mowers have a hydraulic generator, powered via a vehicle with a PTO shaft, to power the control system of levers and the rotor on the cutting head or other attachment. The hydraulic batteries-circuits of the vehicle can also be used. The mowers are controlled electro-hydraulically via a control lever and a control panel in the vehicle. The mowers are controlled by the driver.
