TW120 and TW144 are ideal for pasture maintenance, orchard applications, shredding stalks, or cutting material up to 2 in diameter. The TW168 is built tough to shred stalks efficiently, including corn, cotton, milo, and vegetable crops with less maintenance costs than conventional flail units.
The TW Series are available as a three-point lift or pull-type model and 540 or 1000 RPM to fit a wide range of tractors. The center gearbox features splined input and output shafts and tapered roller bearings for added durability and longer service life. The gearboxes and Cat 4 driveline are protected from sudden shockloads by an adjustable slip clutch on the main driveline and by torque dampeners on both side drives. All feature a heavily-reinforced, 10-gauge top deck with rounded-edge design for enhanced appearance, easy clean-off, and added strength. Tall, 1/4 thick side skirts and an obstruction-free underside allow high volumes of material to flow easily through the cutting chamber. Standard pan blade carriers, updraft blades, and a 4 blade overlap help assure a smooth, even cut. Rhino® Quality and Toughness make the TW120, TW144, and TW168 excellent choices!
TWISTER® MULTI-SPINDLE UNITS
Double torque dampeners on both side drives help cushion sudden shockloads on the gearboxes and drivelines.Gearbox strength and durability are enhanced by the 1-3/4 splined shafts and tapered roller bearings. The gearboxes and drivelines are fully-shielded for added safety.
Easily-adjustable slip clutch - All TW's feature an easily-adjustable slip clutch and a Cat 4 driveline. The center gearbox is rated at 120 HP.
Rhino quality and toughness - Rhino Quality and Toughness are built into every TW mainframe. The 10-gauge top deck is reinforced with formed channel bracing. The rolled-edge design adds both strength and eye appeal. The gearboxes and the threepoint hitch lugs are mounted to the frame, not the deck, to minimize downtime.
Deck bracing - The design and the amount of deck bracing found on the Rhino TW120 and TW144 makes the Rhino deck weldment one of the strongest in the industry. The deck is braced side to side and front to rear to help provide years of service.The pull-type units feature dual control rods. The use of dual control rods provides greater load carrying capacity and helps evenly distribute the weight of the cutter to both sides of the tongue and rear axle. Compare this to some competitive cutters that only use a single control rod design where all the weight is concentrated on one side of the tongue and axle.
Square shouldered blade bolts are standard on the Rhino TW120 and TW144 for long lasting durability. The square shoulder means that the bolt cannot turn in the blade carrier providing less risk of premature wear compared to round shoulder blade bolts used on most competitive cutters. Round shouldered blade bolts have a small “pressed” key formed on the side. If the key wears or shears off there is little to prevent the bolt from turning in the hole, which can ruin the blade carrier.
