When you want to cut the grass (or crop residue) in a hurry…

At 42 feet wide, Schulte Industries has made a tool for anybody who wants to mow acres in a hurry. (It might require removing some trees, but just think about how fast you could mow the yard.)

The Englefield, Saskatchewan-based manufacturer says its FX-742 mower is the largest rotary cutter built in the world.

To get under a three metre maximum transport width, the 42 foot mower has a five-plex design.

Carnago discusses potential applications, horsepower requirements, and whether there’d ever be demand for an even wider mower in the video below, recorded at the 2017 Farm Progress Show in Regina:
