Gary Abbott highlighted some of the biggest models at the start of the first day of the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show. Among them, SIP’s World’s Largest Mowing Combination, about which the following was written:
SIP 1500 T
The Silvercut Disc 1500 T, built by Slovenian company SIP, claims to be the world’s widest combination disc mowing outfit. The monster mowing unit has a cutting width of 14.55m (48ft) across five 3.25m cutter beds.
The five separate cutting units, four rear and one front, are equipped with hydro-pneumatic suspension.
The machine weighs in at 9,100kg and requires at least 350hp to operate, despite being a non-conditioner mower. The 1500T folds to 2.99m for transport and measures 7.50m in length.
