The trailed rotary tedders working at widths of 5.50 m and 7.80 m stand out for their low tractor input requirement. Running on the middle wheels when in transport, the machine does not mount in the tractor’s three-point linkage – which is ideal for smaller tractors with lower front axle load and lift capacities.
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 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.
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.
The tines are attached to the tine arms with an eccentric plate and adjust to one of three sweeping angles – an option that makes for excellent tedding in all conditions.
Heavy-duty tine arms (38x4mm tubular steel) and a special ring attachment system combine to provide dependable performance in even the toughest conditions.
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.
You can adjust the spreading angle between 13° and 19° by refitting a pin in a hole pattern on the wheel arms. No tool required. The steep spreading angle is perfect for tedding, producing intensively conditioned forage. With its gentler conditioning action, the shallow angle is better when making the headland turn.
The KW 5.52 T and KW 7.82 T feature a height-adjustable articulated drawbar. Coupled to a rigid drawbar or with a floating drawbar – quick and easy.
KW 5.52 T and KW 7.82 T are very compact models which require little storage space. Parked on large balloon tyres and a steplessly adjustable stand on the drawbar, the trailed models offer unsurpassed stability.
