With the Degelman Sidearm® an operator can cut where it’s never been possible to cut before - safely.
The operator can stay on the highway and position the cutter 50 degrees on either side of the road. Cut from the right, the left or straight back.
The Sidearm® is equipped with a standard, heavy-duty V-Clamp compatible to more than 30 different makes and models of tractor drawbars.
A blade carrier that is tight, tough and safe. Plate of 3/4 inch steel that is four times thicker than most pans. Four-blade mounting locations utilize exclusive square and tapered bolt to eliminate movement.
It’s made up of quarter-inch steel and 8”x12” hollow-structural tubing. It’s big. It’s wide. And it’s strong.
All driveline bearings and cross-joints are easy to service. Drivelines are in-line and designed for handling misalignment and therefore require less servicing. Parts are easily replaceable such as spindles that can be removed with just one bolt. The frame swivel points and wheel axle are sandwiched between two layers of low wear composite for smooth operation and easy maintenance.
Quick disconnect features are standard throughout the Sidearm®, including a quick disconnect coupler in between the gearboxes. We include three sets of hoses that can be adapted easily to a four-hose arrangement if needed. And switching from one wing to the other can be done at the touch of a switch.
Our gearboxes are made right here in Canada using a splined shaft design versus a keyway. The splined shaft increases the surface area of all contact points for increased strength, power transfer and life expectancy. To go even further, we use gearboxes with a 1:1 ratio - the maximum strength that can be extracted from a gearbox.
Signs. fence posts...culverts...if operators find themselves in a tight spot, the Sidearm® gives them the maneuverability to back up easily and get out quickly.
We use cold-rolled, high carbon hex shafting for maximum torque transmission. To increase the ease of maintenance, we designed the shafting and the bearings as one sub-assembly. That means they're both contained in the same tray. If long term servicing is required, the entire bearing tray can be pulled out.
When the tractor’s on the road, it’s not pressing down the grass making it harder to lift and cut. Using the Sidearm® means all the grass is cut evenly without patches or strips.
Drive level and smooth. By being straight on the road and out of the ditch, the operator also benefits from increased visibility and full command over the cutter.
With the Sidearm® there’s no need to unhook the move from mowing offset to straight. It can remain hooked up as the Sidearm® can cut straight behind the tractor or from side to side easily.
