Prepared for 300hp
This new unit replaces the HR 4504 DR and is the smallest mannequin in Kuhn’s vary of folding energy harrows.
It’s suited to tractors as much as 300hp and options hydraulic adjustment of seeding depth and levelling bar as commonplace.
To assist stop overheating, the central Duplex gearbox is supplied with an computerized oil cooler whereas a torque limiter protects the complete driveline from overloading.
