The Grillo GF2 is a perfectly balanced sickle bar. Engine and P.T.O. are positioned in such a way that thanks to the ground clearance obtained it is ideal for cutting on slopes. The centre of gravity was designed to ensure manoeuvrability and safety in the most demanding working conditions. The three gears can all be used whilst mowing. The Grillo GF2 is fitted with an active cone clutch, a device which ensures the operator’s safety. The wide choice of cutter bars meets the requirements of all operators. The large accessory range, attached by means of a quick coupling, make the GF2 a multi-purpose machine.
Standard Cutterbar - The standard cutter bar is model “Tirol” with a 115 cm width and crank action. It is ideal for cutting all grass types and can be used in rustic areas, fruit orchards and grass for animal feed. The crank mechanism is built using premium steel types and is fitted with grease nipples on all articulating parts. The floating grass disperser is mounted on anti-vibration rubbers with a special profile to dispel the grass in the most demanding conditions; the grass is cut, dropped to the ground by the action of the wheels allowing easier control when moving forwards. The blade sections are made of special steel and fixed with special 6 mm length rivets. The cutter bar’s teeth are made of a special profile to ensure a perfect cut and are made of special heat treated steel. The blade tensioners are adjustable ensuring so a constant fit between blade and teeth.
Quick Coupling - The GF2’s quick coupling allows the change of implements without ever unscrewing any nut. By operating a practical lever you unlock the quick coupling mechanism allowing you to replace other implements. It’s an easy-to-do procedure that you can do without any efforts.
Weight Distribution - The GF 2’s weight distribution was designed to ensure stability when mowing on slopes. To further increase the stability on slopes you have the possibility to increase the track by up to 24 cm with the wheels extensions. The agricultural profile tyres ensure high grip and the handlebar can be adjusted laterally.
Mechanic Transmission - The GF2’ mechanic transmission with its gears in an oil bath are located inside the carter made of pressed aluminium. The lever operated gears and P.T.O. are easily reachable. The active cone clutch operates the drive, when leaving the handlebar the sickle bar will immediately stop whilst the engine remains running. In order to further increase the operator’s safety, the drive lever is equipped with a double control to avoid any involuntary actions. The double control can be activated with only one hand.
Gearbox - The GF2’s gearbox has 3 forward and 3 reverse gears is designed to obtain the optimum speeds for mowing, i.e. 1.1, 2.6 and 4.3 km/h, when fitted with the “Tractor” wheels 4.00-8. For a level cut, the cutter bar has to be free to incline adapting itself to the ground’s unevenness. The handlebar was mounted on vibration-proof elements which dampen the vibrations also laterally. The handlebar is laterally adjustable in order to work more easily on slopes and can be adjusted in height in order to meet the user’s requirements. Furthermore it is reversible and can be lowered to considerably reduce the machine’s size. All controls are in a comfortable position, including the handlebar’s adjustment levers.
Engine - The GF2 is fitted with the Honda GX160 OHV petrol engine; this engine recoil start and are fitted with the latest technological innovations ensuring easy starting, reliability, low emissions, reduced consumptions, high performance and vibrations which are reduced to the minimum. Grillo GF2 engines are fitted with rear bumper.
Finish - Painting of Grillo machines consists of a double electrostatic powder coated process. At the beginning there are the washing baths and the preparation, then a first protective coat is applied together with the baking in the oven, turns out to be the best basis for the application of the finishing. The second coat consisting of varnish and a further baking in the oven at 190°C convey the characteristic hardness and brilliance. All GF2 have been mounted with care for every detail and tested scrupulously by specialised personnel. Final inspection means also machine with started-up engine in order to check the functionality. This is a further and final guarantee for a high quality product.
