The new Vermeer 8020 Gator Mower, a rugged disc-style
hay mowing unit has a cutting width of 10’3” and is capable
of operating at speeds up to 8 mph.
Disc-Style Cutter
Features Extra
PELLA, lowa The new Ver
meer 8020 Gator Mower, a rugged
disc-style hay mowing unit—fea
turing solid steel hood protection,
heavy-duty side curtains, and an
easy-to-maintain drive system
has recently been introduced.
The rugged low profile
1,390-pound unit has a cutting
width of-10’-3” and is capable of
operating at speeds up to 8 raph.
However, according to Vermeer
officials, the major emphasis in
the Gator Mower design is opera
tor protection.
“This new Gator Mower com
bines the cutting efficiency and
speed of a quality-built disc-style
mower with the kind of operator
safety and protection that’s sorely
needed in today’s hay mowing
equipment,” said Jim Vander-
Werff, national sales manager of
the Vermeer Agricultural
According to VanderWerff,
“the Vermeer 8020 Gator Mower
is built with a unique folding steel
hood that not only provides the
operator with complete access to
the cutting bed but also an extra
measure of protection not. found
on conventional curtain-only
mowers. In addition, Vermeer has
put its side curtain material
through an extensive puncture
testing process. As a result, today
all new Gator Mowers come
equipped with heavy-duty single
ply rubber curtains that actually
measure up to 250 percent thicker
than those found on competitive
units. The replaceable swing
away cutting knives are also heat
tempered, shatter-resistant and
reversible,” he said.
The Vermeer 8020 is built for
aggressive cutting speeds in all
kinds of terrain. The adjustable
cutter bar features eight counter
rotating, synchronized cutting
discs for dependable performance
even in wet, trampled, or wiry hay
conditions. The entire cutting bed
is powered by a continuous
through-drive shaft, rather than a
series of gears. In effect, each cut
ting disc is self-contained and pre
packed with its own set of gears,
bearings, and lubricant.
The efficient modular design
makes it easy to service. Simply
by removing the end panel and
one hex nut, the operator can slide
individual discs off the cutting bar
for repair or replacement This
design also extends the life of the
cutting head, especially in hilly
The 8020 Gator Mower also
features a smooth hydraulic lift
system for quicker turns and better
handling on the run, plus a breaka
way frame design that prevents
damage from large unseen obsta
cles. The unit lifts vertically for
narrow transport at a width of only
The Vermeer Gator Mower is
also available in three other mod
els with mowing capabilities of 7-,
8-, and 9-foot widths.
