With 6 rotors: KW 6.02 • KW 6.72 • KW 7.82
- 4.60 m to 7.80 m work widths
- Central border spreading control
- Convenient operation
Featuring strong frames, robust gearboxes and rotors, the KRONE rotary tedders perform equally well in hay and heavy crops, Pivot joints on the frame and scores of useful setting options make KRONE rotary tedders the masters of super clean sweeps and quality forage.
The leading gauge wheel
Available as an optional extra on all KW models, the leading gauge wheel makes for even better rotor ground contouring, giving the KRONE rotary tedder the edge when it comes to highly undulating terrain.
Safe ride on public roads
A transport width of less than 3.00 m makes for safe and compact road travel. The KRONE damper system automatically centers and stabilizes three-point machines in the transport position.
The eight-finger OctoLink clutch
OctoLink is our extremely hardwearing clutch, which forms a frictional connection at all times and yet requires no attention at all. Some of its eight fingers are always in mesh, even when the rotors are folded through 180 degrees.
The enclosed liquid-grease lubricated gearboxes that drive the rotors are absolutely maintenance-free. Permanent lubrication gives peace of mind and increases longevity. The chunky box-section chassis absorbs all shock loads on the frame. Mounted beneath the individual sections, the liquid-grease gearboxes drive nothing but the rotors. The same sections guide the rotors on the KW models, which increases the overall stability and takes the load off the gearbox.
The special design of these short fingers and the way they align ensures a consistent flow of power down the driveshafts. There is not a single moment the power flow is cut. This type of driveline translates into maximum efficiency and longevity.
The folding mechanism
With so much free space in the OctoLink system, the outermost rotor segments can be folded in by 180°, reducing transport height and storage space requirement on the one hand while increasing road safety on the other.
The KRONE rotors
- Sturdy tubular tine arms
- Uniform crop spread as the tine arms overlap generously
- Heavy-duty, hardwearing 9.5 mm Super C double tines with 5 coils
- Unequally long tines give the special KRONE combing effect
Quality requires us to start with the basics. This is how we achieve high standards. The rotors on the KRONE rotary tedders are the ideal equipment to produce quality forage for on-farm use. Whether you’re producing hay or silage, these rotors deliver every time.
Uniform distribution of the material
The generously overlapping tine arms spread the crop evenly for a uniform spreading pattern in all conditions. Uniform spreads improve wilting and reduce drying times, allowing you to finish the job before weather turns bad.
5, 6 or 7 tine arms
The KRONE KW and KWT rotary tedders are available in various work widths and dimensions. But also the rotor diameters and the number of tine arms on each rotor vary to suit your special needs and requirements. With five tine arms on the small diameter rotor (1.34m), six on the medium-sized rotor (1.53m) and seven on the largest (1.70m/1.80m) rotor, KRONE offers the perfect rotary tedder for every user, every situation and every need.
Warranting top quality forage
- Central border spreading control spreads the crop away from the boundary for easier harvesting.
- The angle of throw is adjusted without tools.
- The castering wheels on the rotors run in close vicinity of the tines to provide accurate control.
Thought-through details and high operator comfort boost the efficiency of your operation. The central border spreading facility ensures you are not wasting a single haulm along the boundaries. In addition, it allows you to spread uphill with the machine running at an angle to the tractor. The rotor tilt is adjusted without the need of tools for perfect adaptation to the current crop and yield.
The KRONE headstock
- The machine automatically moves into a central position as it is raised, offering a convenient transport position
- Damper braces with compression springs provide for excellent castering
- Compact transport position, safe travel on public roads
A KRONE rotary tedder is robust, offering excellent road safety, positive castering and convenient adjustment from the cab. Folded into transport position, the machine offers a low centre of gravity for compact and safe travelling between fields and compact storage.
