3000 Series Flex-Wing Rotary Cutters

Versatility and durability at an incredible price!

The 3000 or “Apex” Series Flex-Wing Cutters use a ½” x 4” blade to make quick work of grass and brush up to 3” in diameter. These smaller cutters only require 50 horsepower from your tractor, so this is the unit for everyone from a full-time rancher to a weekend hobbyist! As with most of our equipment, the Apex Series cutters are designed with slip-clutch protection and hydraulic wing-lift.

The Apex is an affordable option that shines with the engineering you’ve come to expect from Rhino!
