Technical solutions for high grass mowing

Unfortunately, nature conservation faces a dilemma when it comes to mowing grassland.

Extensive mowing is necessary to keep the areas open and ensure a diverse flora. This in turn creates a rich habitat for fauna.

At the same time, mowing physically injures animals and insects and abruptly alters their habitat.

Maintaining a balance between nature conservation, profitability and occupational safety

If neither mowing nor non-mowing produces meaningful results, what should you do? As is often the case, the solution boils down to a compromise.

Above all, the maintenance period and frequency have a decisive influence on which animal and plant species settle in an area permanently

The following mowing techniques are available today and used in a meaningful combination in green space management:

In focus: The beam mower

Oscillating grass-cutting techniques, better known as “beam mowers,” are particularly gentle on insects and small creatures. Triangular blades which run against each other cut the grass cleanly like scissors. The grasses and plants remain on the surface intact and uncrushed, where they start to dry.

At short intervals, the grass can then be dried by turning and then used as hay. The clippings can be removed manually, with a loader wagon or with a baling press.

Belt Rake AS 600 MultiPro

Mowing is rarely the last step in a green area maintenance routine. Often, on some extensively maintained areas the next required step would be to remove the cuttings from the surface to prevent nutrient enrichment. The scarcity of nutrients on definied green space sites is an important precondition for the flowering of numerous herbs (such as meadow sage). As nutrient-poor sites produce a more colorful and diverse plant composition.

In addition, these sites are often more maintenance-extensive, meaning they require less mowing. But the belt rake can also be used in various functions for small-scale farming to produce forage.

In the first step, when using at higher engine speed and without swath cloth the machine functions as a tedder. In the second work step operated with swath cloth and lower speed, the forage can conveniently be raked together.
