Buying a used Spearhead 460 topper

Spearhead launched the folding ‘Flex wing’ 450-6S wide area topper/mower back in 1992, this model’s all shaft drive design having since formed the basis for a comprehensive range of wider variants right up to the 12.10m wide Stubble Master 1210.

We have been here before, having previously taken a look at buying a used Spearhead 450-6S, 450-9S and the successor Multicut 460 back in 2007 (profi 6/2007). More recently we covered Alamo Group family member, the McConnel SR15-6 ‘flex-wing’ models (profi 7/2019). But the second hand Spearhead Mulitcut toppers/mowers are a different animal to the other Alamo brands. In this articles we explain what checks you need to make and what problems you could encounter.
