KUHN Farm Machinery has strengthened its position in the long reach hedge and verge cutter market with the launch of its first telescopic arm machine.
With a fully extended horizontal range of 7.4 metres and maximum vertical height of 8.4 metres, the Multi-Longer GII 7457 E-TPAL is KUHN’s longest reach hedge cutter yet and significantly enhances its offering in the sector.
Designed to meet the needs of the professional operator, the Multi-Longer GII 7457 E-TPAL has a parallelogram pivot-mounted straight arm configuration, with the heavy duty frame and main boom robustly constructed of high yield steel. With a 57hp hydraulic motor and 21kW air-cooled radiator with double heat exchanger, this machine has a recommended annual use of up to 1,500 hours per year.
As with other models in the KUHN range, the Multi-Longer GII has a 1.2 metre reinforced belt drive flail head as standard, with 240-degree flail head rotation. There is also the option of a 1.5 metre flail head with hydraulic roller.
Operators have the advantage of a 4-function joystick with electric proportional control, with a range of features including ground following aided by hydropneumatic lift control.
The Multi-Longer GII 7547 E-TPAL benefits from having KUHN’s Stabi-Link quick hitch axle mounting as standard, offering increased stability as well as fast mounting/uncoupling to allow the tractor to be quickly freed up for other work. This hedge and verge cutter is recommended for use on tractors with a minimum 120hp and 6.5 tonnes in weight. The standard machine has a recommended retail price of £46,993.
