Rigid rotary cutters are the 19th product to be added to AEM’s Latin America Regional Ag Statistics Program for Brazil.

Participating member companies will receive their respective monthly market share information based on their reported monthly state-level wholesale data for Brazil from January of 2016 through April of 2018. Three companies are currently reporting: Green Systems (a John Deere brand), Herder and Woods/Blount.   

A rigid rotary cutter (FER1) is defined as a single rigid deck construction rough-cut mower, employing horizontal rotating knives to cut or shred grass, brush or crop residue. The rigid rotary cutter may be hitch mounted or pull-type from tractor. They are powered by tractor PTO, tractor hydraulics system or mounted engine. Reporting classifications are by size of cutting swath in inches.

AEM launched its Latin America Regional Ag Statistics Program in November of 2016. It consists of four separate regional programs: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Other Latin American (OLA) countries.
