- Krone has launched an innovative cutter bar folding system for its EasyCut folding conditioner mower, which is a world first in the disc mower market segment. It will be at LAMMA 2022
The new EasyCut F 400 CV Fold has a maximum working width of 4.04m. It is claimed to boost efficiencies and work rates in comparison with traditional front mowers of a maximum 3.20m width and yet does not exceed the statutory 3m transport width. It is ideal in set-ups with a three-point or trailed rear mower or a butterfly combination.
When changing over for road transport, a hydraulic slewing gearbox folds the two outer discs into the space between the tractor wheels and the mower to reduce the width to under 3m. At the same time, the driveline is not cut and the discs remain in cutting position.
Folding is hydraulic and sequence is triggered easily and conveniently from the cab. As the machine arrives in the field, the discs fold back into working position and are hydraulically secured in their working positions. The side guards fold into working position of up to 4.04m. The wide working width eliminates the risk of the tractor running on cut grass and stripes of uncut grass.
