Mid-Mounted Boom Mowers are featured on the Massey Ferguson VMS® and Challenger RMS® lines of tractors.
Massey Ferguson VMS® 5460/6255
Challenger RMS® 465B/525B/535B
These mowers are used for cutting grass, brush, and limbing. The electronically controlled Articulated Arms are combined with Rotary or Flail mowers that are hydraulically driven using an independent reservoir that is isolated from the tractor.
The Boom is attached to the tractor via an integrated PowerFrame. The frame is designed to minimize the torsional loading on the tractor, thus extending the life of the tractor. The frame can be installed by an Authorized Dealer or by Little at one of its two installation locations.
One of the unique characteristics of the Little Boom is the direct acting rotary cylinder used for angular positioning of the Boom. The rotary actuator eliminates push-pull cylinders and linkages for improved reliability and reduced maintenance. The actuator has a massive bearing area with hydraulically pressurized thrust bearings to take the load.
