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 GMD 2810 disc mower (2.67m working width) uses Kuhn’s new-generation Optidisc cutter bar, designed to improve quality of cutting, increase protection and durability, and reduce maintenance, the distributor says.
“Central articulation gives this straight mower the advantages of improved ground following and even load distribution, ensuring accurate cutting even at high speeds.
“Lift control is an integrated hydraulic linkage enabling the cutter bar to be lifted out of work on headlands (to a clearance of 400mm) without raising the 3-point linkage. Ground clearance is also constant over the whole width of the machine.”
Non-stop break-back control is also included on the GMD 2810, Kuhn says, minimising the risk or inconvenience of damage in the event of hitting an obstacle. The maker’s new Fast-Fit blades system are fitted as standard.
