Vicon Extra 732FT and 7100T BX mower combination: Triple-bladed trio

The 7100T is Vicon’s widest working butterfly mower: when combined with a 732FT, it can stretch to 10.10m. We've been busy using the triple mower conditioner outfit this season, along with the removable BX swather

There is a growing demand for triple mowers as on-farm horsepower rises, with these wider working machines enabling farmers and contractors to drop a lot of grass quickly to optimise sugar levels and wilt times. One such combination is the Vicon Extra 732FT front and 7100T BX rear mower conditioner set-up, which we have been putting through its paces this season. The test unit came kitted out with Vicon's BX grouper, which wasn't installed on the rear mowers in our 2018 driving impression.
