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.
Filling the gap between the Master 153 and the 183, the Master L has an on-land format allowing the use of tractors equipped with broad tyres or tracks, protecting the soil from compaction.
The plough’s geometry uses special kinematics to cancel any drift associated with a change in offset or working width, ensuring the plough remains perfectly aligned with the direction of travel, helping to reduce wear and fuel consumption. A patented furrow closing angle-of-attack adjustment system is said to improve residue flow and burial, in a single movement and without need for tools.
Maintenance-free, the VARI system offers increased work rates, and its linkage mechanism, integrated into the housing, provides excellent shock protection. A welded structure and forged wear parts help extend service life.
A new arched plough beam creates less wheel overrun, allowing operators to work close to the edges of the paddock and get a good finish.
