KUHN Farm Machinery has expanded its range of front-mounted disc mowers with the addition of two new machines, both of which can be used either as solo machines or in combination with rear-mounted gear.
The GMD 3125 F (3.10m working width) and GMD 3525 F (3.50m) join KUHN’s existing line-up of 2.80 and 3.10m machines and have been designed for solo operations or for use in combination with rear-mounted mowers or as part of a triple gang setup where working widths can extend to 10 metres.
Both new models are equipped with KUHN’s maintenance-free OPTIDISC cutter bar (7 cutting discs on the 3125, 8 cutting discs on the 3525, two FAST-FIT knives per disc) and use twin PTO-powered swathing drums to produce a well-centred swath, the width of which can be varied between 1.00 and 1.20 metres.
The new machines feature KUHN’s LIFT-CONTROL hydraulic suspension system: this fast-acting, low ground pressure system allows the mower to accurately follow ground contours and safeguards the quality and cleanliness of the forage sward by reducing soil contamination as a result of ground impacts. It also helps to reduce wear and tear on working parts and skids, and keeps fuel consumption to a minimum.
The pendulum style suspension also enables a 30-degree range of cross-plane movement and up to 70cm of vertical travel. The mowing units can also rotate from front to rear in a range of -6.5 and +5 degrees for added ground contouring capability.
All machines in the GMD mower range are protected by KUHN’s PROTECTADRIVE system, which prevents impact damage by allowing the individual disc’s drive shaft to shear. KUHN’s hardwearing FLEXPROTECT side guards are also fitted as standard.
The addition of the GMD 3125 F and GMD 3525 F machines means KUHN now has a range of six front-mounted disc mowers, with models suited to all types of farms and tractors: from upland livestock to lowland dairy farms, and from low to high horsepower tractors.
