Land Pride



The heavy duty RC5020 and RCM5020 Series Rotary Cutters are designed and built by Land Pride to provide excellent cutting performance on gently sloping or slightly contoured right of ways, roadsides, pastures, setaside acres, or for residue in row crop fields. The 20’ cutting width, 2" to 14" cutting height and ability to cut weeds and brush up to 3" in diameter make them well suited for these applications. Both models offer pull-type self-leveling clevis hitches for attachment to 70-250 hp tractors. They also offer various safety guard selections making them an excellent choice for state and municipal mowing applications.

  • Star profile drivelines: Star profile spreads load out to many points on the shaft. More apt to resist bending and twisting under shock loads and harsh mowing conditions.
  • Easy greasable drivelines: Drivelines have access holes for greasing the U-joints and to grease the inner profiles.
  • 4 Plate slip-clutch: Protects drivelines and gearboxes by slipping clutches rather than twisting the driveline when impacts are encountered.
  • High blade tip speed: 540 rpm: Center: 17,377 fpm, Wings: 17,329 fpm; 1000 rpm: Center: 18,165 fpm, Wings: 15,013 fpm. Allows for a clean cut of material and even distribution.
  • 6" Blade overlap: Generous blade overlap eliminates skipping, especially in turns.
  • High cutting capacity: Can cut brushy areas with saplings up to 3".
  • Left wing rotates counterclockwise: Better discharge of material. Picks up tractor tracks.

  • 3/16" Stump jumper backed with a 1" thick mounting bar: Heavy round stump jumper with bottom gearbox seal protector. Can hold up to tough conditions.
  • 3/16" Deck thickness: Heavy enough to handle conditions but not weigh unit down.

  • 1" Solid hinge rods: Larger diameter hinge rod gives greater strength to the cutter from front to rear, and in the hinge area itself.
  • Wing transport locks: Safety feature. Holds wing sections up in case of hydraulic pressure loss.
  • Enclosed front to rear dual leveling rods: Dual leveling rods enable the cutter to pull equally on the rear axle during travel over rough terrain. Many competitors only use one leveling rod.

  • 5" Square rear axle tubing: Heavy axle to handle harsh conditions.
  • Spring-cushioned center-axle: Protects unit from bumps and ground shock.
  • Replaceable wheel spindles: Wheel spindles can be replaced when damaged without replacing the entire axle. Simply remove two bolts to replace damaged spindle.

  • Bar-tite hitch: Ideal for extreme conditions. Clamps tight to drawbar eliminating drawbar wear.
  • Wheel options: Laminated tires: Eliminates flats; Airplane tires without foam filling: Give better cushion while transporting; Airplane tires with foam filling: Give better cushion while transporting and can’t go flat.
  • Deck rings (optional): 1/2" x 3" full welded deck ring keeps blades from damaging the deck.
