The Zarya mower for the Neva motor-block is a convenient and simple version of the attachment that expands the capabilities of a diesel or gasoline unit. With its help, you can work in areas of significant area. With minimal maintenance, the attachment works efficiently, suitable for continuous use at agricultural facilities for various purposes. The types, features of operation, the installation of a rotary mower during the selection and purchase of equipment require detailed consideration, because the successful use of equipment in the future directly depends on these factors.
Why is it needed?
The mower for motoblock is an attachment oriented to mowing vegetation with various indicators of stalk thickness and roughness. Robust design for simple and easy operation. Its resource is quite enough for haymaking, harvesting grassy crops.
Unlike manual scythes, such equipment demonstrates productivity up to 0.35 ha per hour, it is not sensitive to the quality of grass cover, can be used to clear areas and prepare virgin soil for further processing.
Mowers "Zarya" manufactured by the Kaluga plant "Kadvi" have several modifications, based on which the compatibility of equipment with specific models of equipment is determined. Among them there are the following options, adapted for combination with Neva walk-behind tractors MB1 and MB2:
- modernized, with a shifted frame on top and V-belt drive, suitable for mowing especially tall and thick grass;
- KP. 05.000-05 - a universal solution for equipment with a capacity of 5-7 liters. with.
Each of the presented options has its own characteristics and advantages, allows you to work in the most difficult conditions.
If the efforts of a conventional mower are not enough to cut off thick growth, then the upgraded version, which excludes clogging of the subframe with beveled stems, will be the more preferable option.
The modern rotary mower for the Neva motor-block has a simple and clear principle of operation. It includes cutting discs that rotate during operation. Grass stems falling between them, young growth of shrubs with a diameter of up to 1 cm is easily cut. After mowing, the vegetation forms neat rows, which later can be easily collected or temporarily left to dry.
The rotary type mowers are characterized by compact dimensions, therefore it is convenient to store and transport them at any distance. In the Zarya mowers, there are two discs on the frame, which significantly speeds up and simplifies the mowing process. Such equipment is attached to Neva motor-blocks with the help of a special V-belt, forming a connection with the drive of the main unit. Unlike cottage models, rotor-type twin-disc mowers are considered more powerful and professional; they are mainly used on farms or on large areas.
Among the features of the Zarya rotary mowers, their adaptation to mowing stalks of cereal crops, which are distinguished by high strength and hardness, can be noted. The knives have a free stroke and do their job quite confidently on uneven ground surfaces. With the help of a modern rotary mower, it is possible to mow areas with wormholes, a dense root mass, and uneven sections of soil. The package includes a locking system that works when the permissible loads are exceeded.
Among the obvious advantages of “Zarya” mowers for walk- behind tractors, a mechanism for dumping cut grass can be noted , which greatly facilitates the process of further care of the site. Compared to ringworm models, it is safer and allows you to work without stopping in large areas of the area.
Not without flaws. The weak point of this model is the belt drive, which is subjected to accelerated wear during operation due to the mobility of the connection.

A mower installed on a walk-behind tractor should only be used if all requirements are met. It is impossible to carry out start-up and adjustment if there are passers-by within a radius of 25 meters. The first is the motor block engine. After warming up, the mower can be put into operation. In this case, the engine speed must not reach its maximum values.
After the first 30 minutes of operation, in the new mower it is necessary to check all the attachment points. If they are weakened, then the fasteners are fixed in a predetermined position. The equipment is switched off only at the minimum engine speed of the walk-behind tractor.
During operation of the walk-behind tractor paired with a mower, it is necessary to control its serviceability and readiness for work. In the process, every 5 hours it is recommended to monitor:
- tightening fasteners;
- the degree of sharpness of the cutting elements;
- reliability of belt drive tension.
Every day, after 12 hours of operation, the lubricated units must be treated with lithol or solid oil. If there are signs of a malfunction, the use process should be suspended. In the process, the operator must wear special safety glasses, use protective clothing.
Mowing the surface of grassy or mixed fields and plots requires speed compliance - this must be done without rushing and jerking. The movement of the cutting tool should be smooth, gradual.
