The RCP2660 and RCPM2660 Hydraulic Parallel Arm Rotary Cutters provide excellent cutting performances on ditch banks and other sloping areas adjacent to rights-of-way, lakes, ponds and streams. These units perform extremely well in tall grass and will easily cut through standing brush up to 2" in diameter. The optional gauge wheel package allows the cutter deck to float over undulations without having to constantly monitor terrain conditions.
The RCP2660 and RCPM2660 cutters are adapted for Category II or III 3-point hitch mounting on 75 to 150 HP tractors weighing 7000 lbs. or more. Pump and reservoir system require either 540 or 1000 RPM input. Depending on hydraulic configuration, the cutter drive and tractor need to be equipped with one to four hydraulic outlets to operate the cutter’s parallel arm and deck. - Less

Good access for reaching down embankments Better access for reaching down embankments.
180 Degree Operating Tilt Arc
Cutter head can be positioned to reach different angles.
Cat. 2 & 3; 540 or 1000 RPM
Fits a wide variety of tractors.
35 Gallon Oil Reservoir
Large reservoir maintains optimum fluid temperatures and also serves as counterweight.
2" Cutting Capacity
Ideal for trimming brush.
High Blade Tip Speed
15,000 FPM tip speed means cleaner cutting.
Two Parking Stands
Easy and level storage, makes it easy for hooking to tractor.
Cleans hydraulic fluid before it re-enters the reservoir.
Permits maintenance with minimum oil loss.
Built-in Auxiliary Weight Rack on Left Side
Suitcase weights can be added to left side for balance. Able to choose the weight bracket to match various types of suitcase weights.
Oil Pressure Gauge
Easily monitor oil pressure for optimum performance of unit.
Allows the parallel arms to pivot backwards to avoid obstacles and to protect cutter deck and parallel arms. Parallel arms are pivoted back to normal operating position with the hydraulic breakaway cylinder.
Flow Control Valve
Compensates for various tractor hydraulic systems so proper hydraulic fluid pressure can be maintained. (Used only with solenoid control Option.)
Solenoid Controlled Cylinders
Allows cutter to be used on tractors with only two hydraulic duplex outlets. Response time is faster than tractor controls making it an excellent choice when frequent changes to deck position. (Used only on Solenoid Control and Independent Control Options)
Gauge Wheels Option
Deck floats on gauge wheels eliminating frequent deck positioning and vigilant watch for changes in ground contour under the tractor and deck.
Independent Control Option (Self-Contained Hydraulics)
Self contained hydraulic system eliminates the tractor/RCP hydraulic incompatibility. This option uses the RCP hydraulic system to operate the cutter. Tractor needs one set of hydraulics to operate the breakaway cylinder.
Kubota 3-Point Stabilizer Kit
Makes the RCP2660 Parallel Arm Rotary Cutter a match fit for Kubota tractor model numbers M126GX, M135GX, M6-141, and M6-141.
Mounting socket receives most slow moving vehicle signs equipped with a mounting blade for ease of attachment and removal when transporting on a truck or trailer. Slow moving vehicle sign is offered as an accessory when the tractor’s slow moving vehicle sign and mounting blade does not fit the cutter’s standard mounting socket.
