Rhino® RC flail shredders are designed to provide maximum shredding of crop material while leaving the residue evenly distributed across the width of the machine.RC flail shredders feature a five-year limited gearbox warranty and are available with a three-point lift, semi-mount or pull-type hitch in shredding widths of 15', 18', 20' and 25'. The drivetrain is built tough with standard heavy-duty features including a Cat 5 or Cat 6 main driveline, a 207 HP 1000 RPM gearbox, and 5 x 5 v-banded drive belts to handle the power of larger tractors in tough conditions. The shredder housing is a formed 3/16 thick hood with internal 3/16 stiffeners at critical wear areas that add structural strength to the mainframe and extend the life of the shredder. The specially designed housing and 12,620 FPM* blade tip speeds help assure maximum crop shredding and insect habitat destruction. The shredder blades are hard-surfaced with tungsten carbide for maximum wear life and provide more cuts per foot of travel than most competitive shredders. The resulting mulch speeds the rate of material decomposition and nutrient return to the soil while providing ground cover to help prevent erosion caused by wind and water.
The three-point and pull type RC flail mowers feature in-line axles that can be adjusted to fit most row spacings. The cutting height can be adjusted using either a hydraulic lift cylinder on all models or a ratchet lift screw on the RC115, and RC118.
The semi-mount RC flail’s axle utilize a castor wheel assembly. The width between the castor wheels can be adjusted to fit most common row spacings. Each castor wheel features a ratchet link for individual height leveling. The semi-mount option is equipped with a full three point hitch attachment. Every RC flail features reverse blade rotation for finer shredding of crop materials.
The cuttershaft features heavy-duty, 2 (2-9/16 RC25), double-row spherical roller bearings for longer service life. Direct belt tension on two 5V-banded belts reduces belt wear and maintenance costs. The shield is hinged for easy access during routine maintenance. The RC115, RC118, RC120, and RC125 feature four adjustable axles as standard equipment.
The RC120 and RC125 are available with a hydraulic end tow package for ease in transport. The narrow transport width allows the row crop shredder to pass through narrow gates and be easily transported on the road. The end tow package utilizes two cylinders to raise and lower the machine and a foldable tongue for minimal interference when the RC is in use. (SMV and safety lights are now standard equipment.)
The cuttershaft features heavy-duty, 2 (2-9/16 RC125), double-row, spherical roller bearings. The bearings are triple sealed for extra protection and extended service life. The bearings are greased through external grease lines for easier maintenance. An anti-wrap seal protector design reduces the risk of seal damage.
