Designed to be reliable and simple to operate, the PZ 170 builds on a legacy that goes back over 50 years to the introduction of the world’s first drum mowers.
The 5'5 cutting width of the KUHN PZ 170 drum mower provides small-acreage landowners and hay producers with significantly improved capacity and productivity compared to most sicklebar mowers. This drum mower easily cuts through tall, thick and tangled grasses with minimal horsepower requirements.
