Europe’s leading producer of rotary mowers has unveiled a special model, marking the 20th birthday of the Multicut 460. The Spearhead Multicut 460 Y20 delivers the best-ever specification at a celebratory price.

Over 20 years, the Multicut 460 has gained worldwide fame as a robust and long-lasting flex wing mower. Machines are cutting grass across the globe, with Kenya recently seeing its first machine in action. Many organisations in agriculture, aviation, and the military favour Multicut.

Not only does the 460 save time behind the wheel it delivers a superior cut. In farming, for example, dairy and meat yields can improve due to higher quality pasture.

Multicut 460 Y20: best-ever specification

Presented in Y20 grey, the special edition model provides every possible feature at a price that rivals the standard 460 model.

A huge advancement, the Y20 includes a new, more robust 165HP gearbox, covered by a complimentary five-year warranty. Delivering 50% more power when required, oversized shafts and gears increase the stature by 30%. Critically, the lower seal is fully protected, minimising the risk of damage to this key component.

A further standard inclusion is the award-winning six-blade Starcut Knife system. Usually seen on top models, this ensures the Y20 delivers superior cutting. Working six blades, not three, cutting is faster (at least 10 hectares per hour). Mulch is much smaller (effectively below 60mm), speeding up breakdown, whilst spread is more even. Finally, a fuel saving of up to 60% is likely, compared to fixed knife systems.

The Y20 delivers a softer ride and less machine strain due to Hydragas suspension to reduce shock load. Coupled with a tougher walking centre axle, trailing is incredibly stable – even at speed.

Further welcome features include wider wheels to tackle rough ground, a flat centre deck for easier maintenance and a toughened deck structure.

Comments Antony Prince, Director of Sales and Marketing at Spearhead: “This is a great year for the Multicut 460, and I’m delighted to see the Y20 launch. It showcases everything that’s fantastic about the class leading Multicut 460 and is a further credit to our devoted development team here in the UK. Most significantly, it offers customers incredible value and the highest performance out in the field.”   

Spearhead first launched the Multicut 460 in 2001. It was the successor to the GS400 and 450 rotary mowers.

Development of the ever-popular model continued annually. 2007 saw the Agritechnica silver medal winning six-blade Starcut Knife system launch as an option before 2018 saw the powerful, new Spearhead gearbox (and five-year warranty) unleashed on higher specification models.

Bringing this product development excellence into the Multicut 460 Y20 marks a worthy celebration for Spearhead and its loyal dealer network.
