Kuhn has launched two mower-conditioners for use in delicate crops like lucerne or alfalfa, where leaf loss can be a major problem if conditioning is done by traditional flail type designs.
The new ‘M’ version has two rows of tines and a fixed 3m working width, making it suitable for smaller tractors and operations.
A multi-purpose machine for shallow, medium and deep stubble cultivation, the M300 derives its versatility from the diversity of its wear parts that comprise 480mm fins and 80mm or 50mm shares.
The NSM tine, with double springs and 600kg share pressure, ensures good penetration in difficult conditions, while a traction bolt safety tine version is also available for stone-free soil, with a 3000kg share pressure.
Said to be quick and easy to adjust, the implement’s working depth and roller can be adjusted mechanically using spacers or hydraulically from the cab. The levelling discs can also be centrally adjusted.
To adapt to light soils and dry conditions, the Cultimer M 300 can alternatively be equipped with levelling blades instead of levelling discs, or a wide range of rollers.
