Optima 51, M51 & M56




The "Noremat" range of machines comprises nine models, four "Optima" and five "Magistra". Their reach ranges from 5.1m to 8.3m, and they are designed for tractors from 90hp upwards.

All machines have their own fully independent hydraulic system and are axle mounted to the tractor to give a stable and secure combination. The "closed circuit" piston pump and motor gives ultimate power to the rotor for fast and effective cutting. The system incorporates an oil cooler that controls the oil temperature and reduces the amount of oil needed in the system to 80 litres.

Servo proportional lever controls are standard, with the option of electronic proportional joystick controls for precise movement and less operator fatigue. The "Visiobra" machines have a telescopic forward reaching second-stage arm to place the cutting head towards the middle of the tractor, giving excellent visibility.

A host of patented design features set these machines apart from other manufactures. The main pivot position is counter offset for greater stability. Dual pressure safety break-back protects the arm while it is in use and a reverse shock absorber system protects the machine if struck while reversing the tractor. Arm and head float are standard and can be turned on and off.

A variety of different attachments and rotors are available: grass cutting, hedge cutting, saw blades, forestry scrub busters and ditch cleaners can all be mounted easily on a semi automatic coupling to suit individual needs. These high use, high demand machines are built with the highest quality materials, using components from industry leading suppliers and designed for the uncompromising professional user.
