The centre of gravity was designed to make the GF3 manoeuvrable and safe even under the most demanding conditions. The 3 gears can all be used whilst mowing. The GF3 is equipped with an active cone clutch, a device which increases the operator’s safety considerably. The Robin Subaru EX27 OHC petrol and Lombardini 15LD350 diesel engine are ideal for professional mowing on slopes. The vast choice of cutter bars allows to fulfil all mowing requirements.

The standard cutter bar is model “Tirol” with a 115 cm cutting width and with crank action. It’s appropriate for cutting all grass types and can be used in rustic areas, fruit orchards or grass for animal feed. The crank mechanism was built with top quality steel and is equipped with greases nipples on all articulating parts. The grass disperser is mounted on vibration-proof rubbers, has a special profile to better grass dispersal in the most demanding situations: the cut grass is taken and dropped on the ground by the action of the wheels allowing easier control when travelling forwards. The blade sections are made of special steel and fixed with 6 mm rivets The cutter bar’s teeth with a special profile to give a perfect cut and are made from heat treated steel. The blade tensioners are adjustable ensuring constant adherence between blade and teeth. The 115 cm cutter bar “Tirol” is available also with oil bath action and adjustable cutting head. The oil bath action reduces maintenance and makes the cutter bar ideal for intensive and demanding work.
The 117 cm double blade central cutter bar with its action has a mulch cut mode and is fitted with two blades running in opposite direction. This “scissor like” cutting action reduces the vibrations on the handlebar when mowing ensuring an optimum quality cut in all conditions. Thanks to its characteristics the central 117 cm double blade cutter bar is ideal for cutting in rustic areas, fruit orchards, or produce grass for animal feed. The grass disperser is mounted on vibration-proof rubbers, has a special profile to better grass dispersal in the most demanding situations: the cut grass is taken and dropped on the ground by the action of the wheels allowing easier control when travelling forwards. High quality blades are made from heat treated steel and the blade tensioners made of flexible material to ensure contact between the two blades.
The 127 cm normal cutter bar, available also with 110 cm width, has a crank action. It is the specific cutter bar to obtain grass for animal feed. The crank mechanism was built with high quality steel types and is equipped with grease nipples on all articulating parts.

The cutter bar teeth have a special profile for perfect cutting and are made of special heat treated steel. The blade tensioners are adjustable ensuring constant contact between blade and teeth. For better balance we recommend the use of the 127 cm cutter bar in combination with the Lombardini 15LD350 diesel engine.

In order to produce an even cut, the cutter bar to allow for any ground undulations. The handlebar is mounted on vibration-proof 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, handlebar adjusting levers included.
