Its team of product engineers is dedicated to a policy of constant product innovation. The current product lineup includes drum mowers, disc mowers, tedders, hay rakes, bale feeders and individual and continuous bale wrappers.

Most Reese Agri customers quickly recognise the quality of its products and service and become repeat buyers. The company prides itself on ensuring that all its customers enjoy that same experience.


Drum Mowers

Reese Agri has been producing tough drum mowers for more than 30 years. The range is designed to cut hay and silage but is equally at home with the tough demands of topping or high cutting.

The range consists of manual, hydraulic lift and trailed models. Cutting widths range from 1.6 to 3.4 meters (5'3" to 11'2").

The 3 point linkage mounted models have optional spreaders that spread and lift the crop thereby reducing the need for an additional pass to tedder the crop. The spreader provides a conditioning effect which significantly reduces drying times and avoids the significant loss of plant sugars associated with conventional conditioning equipment.

The heavy belt drive systems used to power Reese Drum Mowers avoids expensive maintenance common to most mower types, and enables long periods of low cost operation.

Routine service and maintenance work can usually be carried out by an operator with reasonable "hands on" abilities and a reasonable farm workshop. Special tools are not usually required.

Optional Extras * (options may differ in your country).
  • Outside skid replacement wheel.
  • Stone guards.
  • Topping skirt.
  • Windrow spreader

Disc Mowers

The Reese disc mower range is the only disc mower specifically engineered to meet and exceed the rigorous demands of New Zealand and Australian conditions. We at Reese have more than 35 years experience in building mowers for (what is considered by mower manufacturers around the world to be) possibly the most demanding operating environment anywhere.
We start with a world renowned cutter bar, naturally one which has individually top serviceable disc units. We not only add substantial reinforcement along the rear of the bar but we add a heavy duty overhead beam over the full length in order to fully support and hold the outside end rigid.

The fully adjustable rotary swath board is a breeze to adjust and turns on heavy sealed bearings for long life.

The bar cover is hinged from both front and rear affording excellent access for blade change and service with ease.
The headstock is simply strong, strong, strong. Our designers have ensured that anywhere most others eventually fail, Reese have extra strength built in. This extra strength extends to areas such as pivot pins where others typically fail in time.
Our expertise with belt drives is utilised with the Reese Disc Mower range. Inside the heavy “no rust” moulded easy access belt covers, are 4 high traction ‘V’ belts over heavy cast steel pulleys rather than aluminium. This better aids heat dissipation which as everyone knows, is a belt’s worst enemy.
In work, the cutter bar has parallel lift ability to better assist crop clearance during headland turns etc.
Best of all, the Reese Disc Mower range has no need for a stand when removing the machine. It is simply free standing. All of you, that have struggled to fit a normal machine onto the tractor linkage, know what we mean. Simply move the fully floating headstock to the required position with one hand while slipping the lower linkage arm into place.
