Driven by the pto shaft and a gearbox, the conditioner benefits from a frictional connection and maximum efficiency. Changing the speed from 600rpm to 900rpm is easy and takes no tool. The new gearbox has a very flat design so more space is left to accommodate the patented folding mechanism.
To prepare the machine for road travel, the two swathing drums on either side swing behind the tractor wheels. This does not cut the driveline and the discs remain in cutting position. The slewing gearbox which provides the connection is powered and secured hydraulically – all done automatically from the cab. The design translates into a less than 3 m transport width.
Maximum operator comfort
The EasyCut F 400 CV Fold has hydraulic end guards as standard so operators can fold them up/down from the seat. Folding the guards or the cutterbars into position requires only one double acting spool.
Stepless conditioner control
The conditioner speed is set either by refitting a pin or steplessly by operating a crank. This adjusts the baffle plate depending on crop requirements.
For large masses of material
Even high yielding forage crops such as green rye pass through the machine in a smooth flow – thanks to the massive conditioner and swath plates that present the material in a narrow swath between the front tyres of the tractor.
The EasyCut F 400 CV Fold comes into its own when combined with the KRONE Butterfly mowers, producing stripe-free cuts in challenging or sloping fields.
Best adaptation to the ground
The hydraulic mower suspension and the new headstock provide more than 1 m up/down travel and perfect contouring.
Adjustable swath width
The standard swathing plates swath the material to any width and infinitely variably. The plates are stored on the machine when not needed.
