Grillo GF 3DF Sickle Bar (132cm cutter bar)
The GF3 DF’ s weight distribution has been designed in such way to increase its stability when mowing on slopes. In order to further increase stability on slopes, Grillo has a wheel extension kit to obtain a wider track up to 24 cm, pneumatic wheels with high adherence tyre profile design and a laterally adjustable handlebar.
The GF3 DF’s mechanical transmission with its oil bath gears is located inside an aluminium pressed casing. The levers operated controls for the gears and P.T.O are all easily accessible.
The active cone clutch lever controls the drive; once you let go the handlebar the cutter bar will stop with the engine still running. For further safety of the operator, the drive lever is equipped with a double control to avoid any involuntary actons. The double control can be activated with only one hand.
The differential increases the manoeuvrability and, combined with the brakes, makes the Grillo GF3 DF agile also during the manoeuvres on slopes. The two brake drums mounted on the wheels are operated by the two levers on the handlebar and allow alternative braking of respectively one wheel so to improve the turning radius. Apart from that the levers are equipped with a block so to convert the service brakes into parking brakes able to hold the sickle bar tightly even on slopes.
The diff-lock is operated by a T-shaped lever on the handlebar and turns out to be indispensable to ensure the straight advancement without any efforts to the GF3 DF.
The gearbox has 3 forward and 3 reverse gears and has been designed by Grillo to achieve the optimum mowing speed, 1.1, 2.6 and 4.3 km/h when fitted with the “Tractor” wheels 4.00-8.
In order to produce an even cut, the cutter bar is freely inclinable to allow for any ground undulations.
The handlebar is mounted on anti-vibrating rubbers which dampen the vibrations also laterally.
The handlebar is laterally adjustable for use on slopes and height adjustable to meet all user requirements. It is also reversible and can be lowered to considerably reduce the machine’s size.
All controls are in a comfortable position including the handlebar adjusting levers.
Grillo has a vast accessory range in order to enhance the use of the GF3 DF, such as 75 cm the rotary cutter with blade brake, the 68 cm all purpose flail and, for winter use, the 125 cm orientable snow blade of 125cm as well as the 70 cm two stage snow thrower.
