Zero turn radius
The Frame design along with our main constant velocity driveline, allows BEFCO’s Cyclone Super-Flex mowers to circle trees and obstacles in one pass where competitors require multiple passes.

Heavy duty four way gearbox
The heavy duty main four way gearbox on the unit is manufactured by BEFCO and equipped with SKF® bearings to ensure quality and durability.

Individual mower gearboxes with spiral gears
Individual gearboxes are also manufactured by BEFCO and come equipped with spiral gears that ensure better power transmission, increase longevity and reduce noise.

Manual belt tensionning
Manual belt tensionner maintains constant tension on belts without stretching them like a typical spring loaded idler would. This means that belts last much longer and there is no spring loaded idler that needs to be disassembled at the end of the mowing season to prevent it from stretching the belts during the winter months.

Double belt transmission
Two heavy duty reinforced belts (SPBX) with manual tensionner provide over 180° coverage of all pulleys and reduce belt maintenance.

Cast iron pulleys
Heavy duty, individually balanced cast iron pulleys are more durable than steel or plastic ones often used by competitors and do not get damaged whenever serviced.

Axial grease fittings
Spindles are quipped with axial grease fittings that allow operator to grease spindle from the top without having to remove the belt shields.

Stamped steel reinforced wheel arms

Only BEFCO mowers are equipped with reinforced stamped steel wheel arms. These wheel arms are stronger than the ones made of bent tubing used by the competition and always guarantee a perfectly even surface for the mower to rest on.

Telescopic wings
The telescopic wings on the mowers allow for adjustable cutting width to increase or decrease mower overlap.

Floating linkage
Mower decks are secured to the main transport frame using a double pivot floating linkage that allows each deck to independently float side to side or front to back.

Front antiscalp roller
All Super-Flex mowers are equipped standard with front antiscalp rollers to help prevent scalping the ground when mowing over uneven terrain.

Hexagonal yokes
Hexagonal yokes on the front tires of the rear mower deck prevent the mower from sliding when going over slopes.

13″x6.5″ pneumatic tires
All Cyclone Super-Flex gang grooming mowers are equipped with 13″x6.5″ pneumatic tires with maintenance free sealed bearings.

Pins that stay in place
Mowers that use traditional cotter pins often loose them when the mower gets too close to a bush. This not only causes the loss of the pin but may also cause the loss of the height adjustment spacers and in some cases even the wheel yokes.
For this reason, BEFCO designed and manufactured a pin that will stay securely fastened under almost any circumstances.

Chain shielding
Mowers are equipped with chain shields to provide additional safety from thrown objects.

Equipped with genuine Bearing Buddy®, bearing protectors
All Super-Flex gang mowers are equipped with Bearing Buddy®, bearing protectors on the transport tires. Bearing protectors make it easy to visually check the amount of grease inside grease packed hubs. The internal spring piston exerts about 3 PSI against the grease to ensure that no moisture enters the hub. When properly maintained, there are no voids inside the hub where condensation can form during winter storage.

Narrow transport widths and heights
The compact transport widths and heights allow these mowers to be transported on narrow roads, bridges and tunnels.
