Forage equipment range expands

09 Oct 2017

KUHN Farm Machinery has updated its range of hay and silage making equipment with the introduction of its next generation range of GF 1012 series Gyrotedders.

The range includes the 8.70-metre mounted GF 8712 and trailed GF 8712 T, as well as the 10.80-metre mounted GF 10812 and trailed GF 10812 T.

The machines have been designed for use on medium- to large-scale units, but are also suited to working in tight, awkwardly shaped fields.

HLC rotor-lift system

The HLC rotor-lift system (standard equipment on the GF 8712 T, GF 10812 and GF 10812 T, and available as an option on the GF 8712) lifts all rotors to a height of 50cm in less than five seconds, making it easier to manoeuvre and operate the tedders, particularly on tight headland turns. The fast-acting HLC rotor-lift system also helps to reduce the risk of impurities being introduced into the forage.

All four of the new machines are compact, thanks to their folding design and a patented stabilisation system between the headstock and the frame. This enhances machine stability during work and improves road transportation safety.

The Gyrotedders can be operated by medium-powered tractors, making them suitable for use on the majority of livestock farms.

Maintenance-free rotors

All models use KUHN’s DIGIDRIVE equipped maintenance-free rotors. Pivoting, small diameter rotors and asymmetrical tines improve ground contact and reduce soil contamination, while wheels which are placed close to the tines improve ground following. Hydraulic adjustment for border tedding is also available as an option.
