Degelman REV 1000/1500

The New Industry Standard

 

REV 1500 Rotary Cutter

Introducing the REV 1500 rotary cutter from Degelman. The deck is made from a 3/16 inch impact resistant steel formed to create a smooth sloping deck. This curved shape deck is manufactured with continuous welds and without pockets that collect debris. As the cutter operates, debris sheds off. Maintenance is quick, easy and weeds are not transferred from one location to another.

 

High Impact Resistant Steel

The tougher the steel the tougher the deck. Improved impact resistant steel has three to four times the lifespan of standard grade A36, resists rust and shock loading better. As a result, the cutter lasts longer, endures more punishment and retains a higher resale value.

 

Maximum Volume Under Deck

Thirteen inches of side depth combined with a smooth underside for cutting and clearing maximum volume of dense growth.

Tapered Bolts. Tight Fit.

It's an engineering fact that two perfectly-machined conical surfaces will centre to each other (a design the automotive industry uses for tie-rods). We applied this thinking to our nuts and bolts. Tapering centers the nut and the bolt, thus eliminating play and reducing wear.

7-1/2" Blade Overlap

For a cleaner cut and to prevent trail-behind, we designed a 7-1/2" blade overlap between the center and wing cutting sections to ensure nothing is left uncut.

Maximum Volume Under Deck

Thirteen inches of side depth combined with a smooth underside for cutting and clearing maximum volume of dense growth.

Long Lasting 5" Twist Blades

Heavy-duty 5 inch wide, twist blades are longer lasting and more resistant to bending and breaking.

 

Square Is Better

Why do all impact and socket wrenches use square adaptors? - Torque.

Again, we go a step further. For easy blade replacement and increased resiliency, we use hardened square bolts. Because of the increased surface area, the square blade bolts have a tighter tolerance and a better contact fit than keyed or hex shaped bolts. This prevents the bolts from spinning and wearing out sooner. Because of this smart design, replacing our bolts is truly a one-person job.

 

Increased Wing Control

Flow restricted hydraulic fittings allow increased control over the speed that the wings go up and down to reduce the risk of damage.

 

Degelman Hydraulic Cylinders

We manufacture our own industrial cylinders with induction hardened chrome shafting, urethane seals and wear bands to eliminate scarring and oil contamination. Shorter strokes translate into rapid movements and more wear, so we developed our center cylinder with a longer, smoother stroke to increase life expectancy and reduce wear and tear.

 

Over-Sized Gearboxes

Designed with exacting standards for maximum life expectancy. Convenient sight glass to check lubricant level at a glance. Industrial split case design for easy and accurate assembly and gear mesh setting. Highest torque rating for rotary cutter applications worldwide.

 

North American Made Solid Steel Splined Drive Train

The REV1500 has been improved to incorporate an end to end Weasler engineered drive train. Weasler's heritage is all about quality, safety and precision manufacturing. Solid high tensile steel spline shafts are unrivalled for torque, shock loads and sliding ability. Rotary cutters put tremendous stress on the drive lines. The REV is protected from the wide angle drive shafts to the heat dissipating preset friction torque limiters. The multi-patented 80 ball and socket constant velocity joint distributes loads evenly, retains lubricant, reduces wear and keeps contaminants out. And for safety the patented articulated guard system maintains full coverage with the mating guard bell.

 

Precision Hitch

Our single bolt clamp hitch is machined and heat-treated from hardened steel to make our hitch superior in quality. Most grease points are designed for easy through-the-head access. Added safety comes into play with our lock up pin connection so one person can do the hook up without worry of hand injury.

 

Robust Rockshaft

Talk about long life. Our rockshaft is over-sized and overbuilt utilizing an extra-wide boxed strut construction for strength. Add to that our dual lug configuration to prevent torsion stress and you have one serious structure. Unmatched in the industry.

Vibration Control

Vibration. The largest single contributor to metal fatigue, stress-cracking and structural failures. In the design of our rotary cutter we've integrated a series of vibration dampening systems that collectively absorb the vibrations.

 

Rugged Knee Action Suspension

For absorbing and reducing impact the rubber we use is top of the line, self-dampening and UV-protected to ensure the longevity and performance of the entire machine. Plus, our active suspension is held in place by a one and-a-quarter-inch Grade 8 grease-accessible hex bolt.

 

Walking Axle Wheels

Our walking axle wheels are the other half of the equation. They add to the reduction of vibrations by dampening fifty per cent of movement and terrain shock. They stabilize the movement to ensure smooth and even cutting.

 

Low Maintenance Tapered Bearing

To reduce wear and tear we've implemented low maintenance tapered bearings in both our walking axles and our optional wing guide wheel assemblies.
