The outstanding feature of the rotor is the special, V-shaped knife arrangement which results in a reduced fuel consumption and a lower noise level.
Due to the high suction effect provided by the SmartCut rotor, the Groundkeeper can also be used for collecting already mown grass, leaves, debris, acorns, chestnuts etc..
The benefits of the SmartCut rotor, with its V-shaped knife arrangement are many in comparison with the rotor technology offered to date, where the cutting knives are arranged linearly in rows.
Because the knives, when arranged in a V-shape, do not pass the shear bar simultaneously but passing in very short intervals, one after the other, they convey the cut material better in the direction of the centre of the rotor, resulting in less lateral air turbulence and, because of this, in an additional improvement in the collecting performance.
Also the noise level is reduced by 5 dB, clearly reducing the noise level at the driver’s ear.
