The height of cut (HOC) is affected by two parameters. One parameter is the length of the turnbuckle on the left-hand side of the machine, which controls the angle of the cutting unit to the ground.
The second parameter affecting the HOC is the setting of the gauge shoes. Operators can choose from different gauge shoe settings.

Ground pressure setting
Setting the ground pressure on the cutting platform
The cutting platform is suspended by two independent torsion bars integrated into the machine. Each torsion bar is linked to a bolt head, and the operator can set the ground pressure for the floating cut via a crank tool.
The comfortable, easy, and reliable system allows the operator to set as much ground pressure as needed and as little as possible. This ensures a perfect cut with low cost of operation due to smooth running and low drag resistance.
The floating cut and the perfect ground contour following helps the operator reduce stress on the turf for faster regrowth and less crop contamination.
All this leads to better forage quality due to better fermentation and less crude ash content, which creates huge operator value.
