M5040 3-Point Disc Mower

With a 6' 9"/2.1 m cutting width, the 5040 disc mower is designed to cut acre after acre with minimal maintenance. The exclusive Vermeer bi-shaft design provides each disc with its own set of gears, bearings and lubricants – and the gears stay in the grease, even when mowing at angles. Extra wide skid shoes eliminate pinch points to protect against rock damage and simplify blade replacement.

Features and benefits

  • Cut close and clean with a tapered, low profile cutter bar that produces excellent, streak-free results.
  • Mow up against fences because the outer bar support allows closer cutting.
  • Replace blades in seconds using the exclusive Quick-Clip™ Blade Retention System.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
