The introduction of the Kverneland KultiStrip System by distributor Power Farming will “bring opportunities to farm environmentally and improve yields and profitability,” the company says.
The mower's concept is to give constant ground pressure. It uses Adjust on The Go, a hydraulic adjustment of the cutting head to constantly optimise overlap.
The KV 3336MT can be used on its own or with the maker’s front mounted 3632FT or 3636FT.
The four-arm Quattro trailing link suspension is designed to achieve better tracking, faster speeds and instant ground adaptation. It provides for a 700mm vertical working range and a 30° transverse working range. The geometry of the suspension arms provides even ground pressure across the full working width including the 400mm overlap, as well as full width break-back protection.
The Kverneland hydraulic Vario-overlap carrying arm allows 400mm adjustment of side shift to maximise efficiency by either aligning with the front mower’s working width -- and compensating when turning -- or working across the slope, on the move.
On headlands, extra lift can be gained via a double acting lift cylinder and revised geometry to allow the lift arm to be raised during the turn, achieving minimum ground clearance of 500mm.
Kverneland has also improved the switchover from swathing to wide spreading with aptly named Flip Over wide spreading, which sees swath plates slid to the side and the hood flipping 180o in the space of one minute. The conditioner plate is further improved and now offers two adjustments -- to the front and top of the conditioner rotor, optimising crop flow in all conditions.
During transport the complete weight of the 3336 MT is spread evenly on both rear tires, thus no need for higher powered or heavier tractors to cope safely with the unwieldly nature of this machine.
