Fresh forage kit at LAMMA

  • Krone UK will showcase an extensive range of forage equipment at LAMMA (17-19 January 2024), from its market leading machines, to innovative digital technology, including a new 10-rotor tedder and SmartBale mobile app
  • The Swadro TC 1570 four-rotor rake and RX 370 forage wagon will also make debut LAMMA appearances

Krone will also have numerous mowers, including the BiG M, plus two BiG Pack balers and two BiG X foragers, as well as the recently launched GX wagon, displayed on stand 19 530.

There will also be the opportunity on-stand to learn about the Agritechnica 2023 Innovation Silver Award-winning blade sharpener.

Compact in size, the new Vendro C 1120 10-rotor tedder, complete with OptiTurn rotor technology, offers exceptional operational reliability, maximum output and optimised forage quality.

Available with either a drawbar or three-point linkage attachment, the trailed tedder has a high-performing working width of 11.2m and works well even in combination with smaller tractors.

The working height can be easily adjusted by either the standard manual adjustment via a hand crank or an optional electro-hydraulic system from the cab.

A defined headland position allows operator handling with ease, even across uneven ground.

Bridging the gap between the existing Swadro TC 13.7m and 19m rakes, the newly launched Swadro TC 1570 four-rotor rake will be shown in the UK for first time at LAMMA.

This addition to the range offers a 15.7m working width, while maintaining compact transport dimensions.

The new model boasts the same qualities as the rest of the range, with the V-frame concept taken from the Swadro 2000 providing smooth and stable operation.

The ISOBUS operator interface includes an advanced colour display, with 3D graphics, animation, and updated machine information, with day and night modes.

Also coming to the UK for the first time, the RX 370 self-loading forage wagon, with the high-capacity OptiGrass cutting system, which sets new cutting and loading benchmarks for professional forage trailers, available in 33m3, 37m3 or 40m3 capacities.

Grass is collected by the 2.12m EasyFlow pick-up and Krone’s proven SpeedSharp blade grinder sharpens 40 or 54 knife configurations in less than five minutes.

Optional integral additive applicators are available and incorporate a 200l tank, pump and four spray nozzles, mounted between the pick-up and rotor.

Easily operated via an ISOBUS terminal, the operator can visualise the fill level and control the operating mode between continuous flow or only when the pick-up is lowered.
