Crop handler suits choppers, wagons, balers

Written by 

Belt mergers are recognised as useful for bringing large volumes of crop into a single windrow to feed the enormous appetites of self-propelled foragers, loader wagons or large square balers.

The Kuhn Merge Maxx 902 has a high capacity belt conveyor system particularly useful for handling fragile crops such as lucerne or clover, or bringing together large grass crops into square sectioned, flat topped swaths with the potential to help increase harvester outputs.

With a working width of 9.1m, and able to clear up to 21m in an out-and-return pass into a 1.4-1.8m swath, the unit has improved suspension allowing high forward speeds, and reduced wear on the support skids and gathering tines.

A control terminal allows easy selection of left, right or centre delivery, with the option to lift belt sections individually or simultaneously dependent on field shape.

Minimum requirement is a 140hp tractor with two double acting hydraulic outlets.
