Whether you’re collecting grass clippings in the summer, pine needles, or gathering leaves in the fall, the Frontier™ MC2014 Material Collection System greatly enhances your productivity. The power take-off (PTO) driven system offers a generous 493-L (14-bu) capacity for longer periods of mowing.
The following are some of the key features and benefits provided by the MC2014:
The high-performance, robust PTO-driven blower has been designed especially for the high-capacity MC2014 Material Collection System. It handles the capacity of the mower and provides plenty of velocity to fill the bags completely. At the heart is a 190.5-mm (7.5-in.) urethane impeller with 3042 rpm that generates the suction. By having the blower directly mounted on the Material Collection System instead of on the end of the mower deck, weight distribution remains uncompromised, ensuring that your lawn receives a level cut that you expect.
With the MC2014 Material Collection System, the material is transferred from the high-performance steel blower into the three bags for a total capacity of 493 L (14 bu).
The three-bag system makes emptying and reinstallation of the bags easy. The weaving is designed to not swell in the center to ease emptying.
The boot kit connects the MC2014 Material Collection System to mid-mount mower decks on 1E, 1R, and 2R Series Tractors equipped with a mid-mount mower deck. Boot removal and installation is toolless for quick changing of implements (after initial installation). The boot is connected to the blower with a 203-mm (8-in.) diameter smooth bore hose to handle material throughput efficiently.
Hose clamps use the helicoidal pattern on the hose to maintain a tight seal without adjustment during each installation. Clamps are retained and do not require tools to adjust (if required), providing a greater seal for increased suction. Easy access to the chute and boot for in-field removal of a clog is accomplished with tool-free clamps.
To store the Material Collection System, two integrated steel storage stands make attaching and detaching quick and easy.
An optional caster wheel kit for the bottom of the stands provides a solution to further simplify maneuvering during attachment, detachment, and storage. The wheels enable the operator to move the hopper into tight spaces for better storage. Four caster wheels (two locking) and the required hardware for installation on the bottom of the two storage stands are included in the kit.
The optional fill sensor (wireless) alerts the operator when the bags are getting full. When the indicator begins to beep, the operator should turn off the mower to prevent plugging and overfilling.
In addition, a plexiglas sight window is standard on the MC2014.
Gas springs keep the lid open for easy access and screen cleaning.
The hopper is quickly removable from the blower frame for ease of maintenance.
