Because of its adaptability and other advantagesdisc mower has been widely applied to forage harvesting. The design of better forage harvester is the inevitable demand for the development of the livestock industry. The paper designed to build a disc mower cutting table bench. It provides a convenient to study how the parameters of each component affect forage harvest. The bench is powered by a hydraulic motor and includes a rack, drum, cutter and other parts. The tilt of disc can be adjusted and the disc and cutter can be replaced. The design depends on Catia and Adams, by means of 3D modeling, to optimize the design of its key parts. Through the simulation by Adams, the effect on the stubble height by the tilt of disc can be seen visually. The stubble height ranged between 0mm to12mm.
