Mounting and stability

McConnel offers the most stable and sturdy mounting systems in the business, ensuring the Power Arm can be attached to the tractor safely, quickly and securely in minutes.

5-point axle brackets are ideal for McConnel’s large flagship Power Arms such as the 70 and 85-series. They are exceptionally robust and deliver outstanding stability by fixing the machine rigidly to the tractor.

They reduce the strain on both the Power Arm and the tractor and deliver a stable cutting platform for a fine finish. A key advantage over rival mounting systems is the ability to fit the Power Arm without having to remove the tractor lift arms.
