Separate Hydraulic Lifting of Units.
The possibility of lifting both rear mowing units individually via hydraulic cylinders is a big advantage on wedge-shaped fields and permits quick and easy maneuvers. This can be done directly from the cab. At the same time the system ensures a reduced ground pressure: beneficial to plant regrowth, cutterbar wear and power requirements.
Lift-Control is much more than just a suspension system with a nitrogen accumulator replacing the traditional spring. The main advantage of the Lift-Control system is derived from the exclusive way in which kinetic forces, which act on the cutterbar, are utilized. KUHN engineers have succeeded in making a dynamic suspension system as opposed to a passive system most commonly used.
Transport with Ease
Transporting a triple combination in upward folding position leaves it closer to the tractor and allows the machine to have:
- Compact dimensions on the road (reduced length)
- A center of gravity close to the tractor
- A reduced load on the rear tractor axle
