The EasyCut F model range is a line-up of innovative front mowers with or without tine or roller conditioner and work widths of 2.71 m to 4.04 m. At the same time, the range comprises particularly compact and light-weight front mowers for mountain fields and applications. Top hats are available for some models. These form narrow swaths that the tractor can straddle.
These front mowers offer work widths of 2.71 m to 3.16 m and have powered top hats that form narrow swaths so the tractor can straddle them. The focus is on quality forage.
The EasyCut M front mowers are our lightweight machines designed for operation on steep slopes and for spreading material across the work width. Mounted close to the tractor without A-frame and benefitting from a low centre of gravity, the machines give perfect contouring.
The front mowers with conditioner are able to swath the material or spread it across the work width. These models are designed for contractors and professional farmers and make a great combination with three-point-mounted rear mowers or butterfly mowers.
The enclosed and fully welded cutterbar meets the highest quality standards and operates dependably and leak-free over many years of hard work. Massive and oil-immersed spur gears impress by very quiet and reliable running in sustained peak-load operation.
Using welding robots and CNC technology, KRONE manufactures its cutterbars to the highest quality standards, ensuring they are fully welded and permanently lubricated. After all, the cutterbar is the heart of every disc mower.
The KRONE developed satellite driveline comprises massive spur gears with up to 66 teeth which transfer the power all the way down to the very last disc. The large-diameter gears rotate at reduced speeds, with a higher number of teeth meshing with the neighbouring gearwheels for even quieter running, ultimate efficiency and maximum longevity. The auxiliary gears drive one disc each and as a result are exposed to only minimum loading.
Colliding discs may cause damage and involve costly repairs. KRONE SafeCut offers a maximum of protection and peace of mind. The award winning system on all EasyCut models offers a unique level of protection and operator comfort. SafeCut is a base specification feature on all EasyCut F models.
There is no load on the roll pins during operation. The bearing is tensioned by a nut and two clamping screws. As a result, the roll pins do not suffer from material fatigue and even after many hours of operation they will break only at their inbuilt load level.
Each disc on the mower has its own individual impact protection. When the blade hits an obstacle the shockload is transferred to a roll pin which breaks. As a result, the disc automatically threads 15 mm up on the drive shaft.
The wedge-shaped cutterbar offers great flexibility to adjust through a large range of settings and leave a short stubble in meadows and pastures as well as long stubble in long-stemmed field crops. An EasyCut mower delivers a reliable performance and clean cut.
With some discs turning in pairs towards each other and others turning away from each other, it was necessary to redesign the degree of blade overlap to ensure cleanest cuts. For stripeless cuts in light and young crops, we have therefore increased blade overlaps on the discs turning outwards (SmartCut). In addition, the blades turning to the rear are set further apart to encourage a smooth flow of large volumes of crop.
Spinning inwards, the discs feed the material to the middle of the machine to avoid tractor wheels running over the cut crops. With discs spinning in the A sense of rotation, EasyCut F 280 and F 320 form one swath.
With discs spinning in the B sense of rotation, EasyCut spreads the material across the full cutting width. All discs turn in pairs, spreading the material across the working width for faster and more uniform wilting.
The front mowers F 320 CV with tine conditioner and F 320 CR with roller conditioner are specialists that warrant high-quality forage. Featuring either a large 64 cm diameter tined rotor or two 25 cm conditioning rollers, these mowers are the pros that deliver high-quality forage and best conditioning even in high-yielding crops.
With no A-frame required, there is plenty of space around the headstock. The pushed design makes for a very compact machine, reduces weight and is gentler on the turf. The transverse pivoting action is provided by the tractor’s link arms. The pulled version has the suspension springs integrated in the machine’s suspension system. The tension of the two springs is controlled from one single crank.
The pulled headstock design allows the machine to break back and up through a larger angle, hence making it more suitable for operation in rolling land.
The pulled headstock has a hydraulic cylinder that raises the mower extra high, providing plenty of ground clearance in any type of terrain. This means there is plenty of clearance for butterfly combinations to handle high-volume swaths on the headland.
Each end of the guard can be folded back to bring transport width down to 3 m. This can also be done hydraulically from the tractor as an option.
