Overview
Cut Where It's Never Been Possible - Safely
 
 
With the Degelman Sidearm® an operator can cut where it’s never been possible to cut before - safely.
The operator can stay on the highway and position the cutter 50 degrees on either side of the road. Cut from the right, the left or straight back.
 
 
Drive Straight. Straight Drive.
To increase the life of the Sidearm® even more, all our drive shafts are in-line to each other. This design feature significantly reduces wear and tear of the components and ensures a direct transfer of power without wearing drive train components. As the cutter is always directly in-line with the Sidearm's output shaft, the life expectancy of the input drive of the cutter is extended exponentially. This increases the versatility of the equipment and keeps everything straight no matter what direction the unit is going in. The two vertical cross-joints also absorb any misalignment or deviation from 90 degrees. These extras mean the Sidearm® goes farther, lasts longer and can take on practically anything put in its path.
 
Heavy-Duty Hitch
The Sidearm® is equipped with a standard, heavy-duty V-Clamp compatible to more than 30 different makes and models of tractor drawbars.
 
Maneuverable
A blade carrier that is tight, tough and safe. Plate of 3/4 inch steel that is four times thicker than most pans. Four-blade mounting locations utilize exclusive square and tapered bolt to eliminate movement.
 
Reduced Operator Fatigue
Drive level and smooth. By being straight on the road and out of the ditch, the operator also benefits from increased visibility and full command over the cutter.
 
A Better Cut
When the tractor's on the road, it's not pressing down the grass making it harder to lift and cut. Using the Sidearm® means all the grass is cut evenly without patches or strips.
 
Stay Hooked Up
With the Sidearm® there's no need to unhook to move from mowing offset to straight. It can remain hooked up as the Sidearm® can cut straight behind the tractor or from side to side easily.
 
Over-Sized Frame
It's made up of quarter-inch steel and 8"x12" hollow-structural tubing. It's big. It's wide. And it's strong.
 
Easy Maintenance
All driveline bearings and cross-joints are easy to service. Drivelines are in-line and designed for handling misalignment and therefore require less servicing. Parts are easily replaceable such as spindles that can be removed with just one bolt. The frame swivel points and wheel axle are sandwiched between two layers of low wear composite for smooth operation and easy maintenance.
 
Quick Connections
Quick disconnect features are standard throughout the Sidearm®, including a quick disconnect coupler in between the gearboxes. We include three sets of hoses that can be adapted easily to a four-hose arrangement if needed. And switching from one wing to the other can be done at the touch of a switch.
 
Back Up With Ease
Signs. fence posts...culverts...if operators find themselves in a tight spot, the Sidearm® gives them the maneuverability to back up easily and get out quickly.
 
Reduced Tractor Maintenance
Long-term off-level operation is hard on a tractor's transmission and engine lubrication. By remaining level and out of the ditch, tractors last longer. Less vibration. Less damaged tires and rims.
 
 
High Horsepower Gearboxes
Our gearboxes are made right here in Canada using a splined shaft design versus a keyway. The splined shaft increases the surface area of all contact points for increased strength, power transfer and life expectancy. To go even further, we use gearboxes with a 1:1 ratio - the maximum strength that can be extracted from a gearbox.
 
High Carbon Shafting
We use cold-rolled, high carbon hex shafting for maximum torque transmission. To increase the ease of maintenance, we designed the shafting and the bearings as one sub-assembly. That means they're both contained in the same tray. If long term servicing is required, the entire bearing tray can be pulled out.
