John Deere HX6
1 Front and rear safety chain shields are standard. They deflect flying debris, yet let uncut material move easily into the cutter.
2 Since the lower deck absorbs dings from rocks and field obstructions, the upper deck stays smooth — free of dents and dings that attract rust. The curved top of the cutter sheds water and crop material.
3 The gearbox is mounted to a heavy-duty bowl support, which is continuously welded to the top and bottom decks. This design spreads the stresses and provides for a more reliable and durable gearbox.
4 The John Deere gearboxes are backed by a five-year limited warranty±. (See dealer for details.) Blades and drive components are protected by a tough, self-adjusting slip clutch.
5 This is the MaxFlow cutting chamber. It can slice and dice brush, plus lift dense grasses for a clean, even cut. The underside of the bottom deck is smooth, improving cutting performance and material flow.
6 Pan-type blade holder, or “stump jumper,” protects the gearbox output shaft from stumps, rocks, and other obstructions.
