Kuhn farm equipment has launched an revolutionary 13m mounted tedder geared toward permitting farmers to entry hard-to-reach fields with a wider working width machine.

The GF 13003 is the widest mounted tedder in the marketplace, Kuhn stated, and joins the trailed model that was launched final 12 months.

Costs for the brand new tedder begin at £42,965.

The mounted design locations the load of the tedder over the rear of the tractor, to keep away from the implement slipping when engaged on hillsides, serving to to extend accuracy and stability.

Grassland product specialist at Kuhn, Rhodri Jenkins, stated: “For customers after elevated output from a mounted tedder, the GF 13003 affords improved manoeuvrability and the power attain fields by slim lanes and gateways.

“The intelligent design means all 12 rotors fold right into a 2.99m transport width and a 2.67m transport top, whereas the tedder options only one gearbox and two hydraulic valves for easy operation.”

To take care of forage high quality and forestall losses on subject margins, Kuhn stated its indirect setting pivots the 2 outer rotors rearwards when tedding on headlands, to make sure all tedded grass is thrown again on to the lower space. The system requires no further hydraulic provide.

Uprated arms and heavy-duty tines accompany a brand new optitedd rotor to enhance longevity of the GF 13003 and cut back servicing and upkeep.

Kuhn suggests the asymmetrical tines are anticipated to final twice as lengthy than earlier tines and can enhance tedding between neighbouring rotors.

A diminished distance between the wheels and tines helps cut back contamination resulting from nearer floor following.

“Additional developments on the GF 13003 embrace rotor wheel deflectors as customary to forestall grass build-up across the wheels and column,” Jenkins stated.

“That is particularly helpful in lengthy crops and younger high-sugar crops that are likely to wrap across the wheels throughout operation.”
