Krone adds to rakes, tedders and mower portfolio
Krone has added to its extensive range of rakes, tedders and mowers to match all systems and provide solutions for all eventualities.
The new KWT 1300 trailed rotary tedder is ideal for individual farmers, contractors and machinery rings. Its twelve 1.53m diameter rotors with six tine arms and of different lengths spread the material uniformly. The hard wearing 9.5mm Super C tines with five coils around the arms are perfectly protected from loss and the spreading angle adjusts without tools to one of four positions and between a 13° - 19° angle.
Like all Krone tedders, the KWT 1300 features the maintenance free and liquid-grease immersed rotor gearboxes, eight finger OctoLink clutches. Arranged underneath the beams the gearboxes do not form structural parts, a design that reduces significantly the stress and strain on the boxes.
Attachment to the tractor is via a standard hitch ring (top and bottom attachment) and the compact running gear makes the machine also suitable for small tractors.
On the mower front the EasyCut R 400 is Krone’s new 4m disc mower is a versatile, safe, straightforward, flexible and productive mower. The robust headstock; SmartCut cutterbar for optimized cuts; individually impact protected SafeCut discs; dependable break-back system; spring suspension system and its narrow transport width make it a ‘must have’ mower.
Should the SmartCut cutterbar hit an obstacle it will instantly break back to the rear and up thanks to the hydraulic break-back system, preventing machine damage.
Three new rakes have also been added to the porfolio, the Swadro TC 640, Swadro TC 930.
Swadro TC 640 is an intriguing entry-level model that rakes 5.7m to 6.4m into 1.0m to 1.7m swaths whereas the higher capacity Swadro TC 930 and models offer work widths of 8.1m to 9.3m.
Each model shares the same robust build, the cardanic rotor suspension system and the Krone Lift Tines with curved ends, which allow the vertical tines to lift the crop as it is being raked to help minimize crop contamination.
