Launched at Agritechnica in 2019, the Magnon CFS is now available in the UK. The top of the range Magnon CFS is the largest machine in the Strautmann forage wagon portfolio.
It is available in three sizes, with loading capacity of 42m3, 46m3 and 52m3.
The “Exact-Cut” chopper unit is equipped with 48 double-sided knives to ensure optimum cutting quality under any conditions. The theoretical cutting length is 35mm. The knife protection system has a triggering function which means the individual knife is completely retracted from the conveyor duct, should it come into contact with a foreign object, thereby minimising damage to the knife blades. The knives automatically return to their working position after the knife protection system has been triggered.
When the Magnon starts the loading process the front panel swivels into the loading space. As soon as the loading space is full the front panel swivels automatically towards the front and provides another 5m³ of loading capacity. This means that the Magnon CFS is more compact than its predecessor, the Tera-Vitesse CFS, whilst simultaneously offering a larger loading capacity.
When discharging, the front panel also automatically swivels to the rear to enable fast and complete emptying of the cargo space. The platform is 2.40m wide and has a galvanised steel floor. The transport floor consists of four low-wear plate-link chains with a breaking load of 13t each.
Plastic tines give a high degree of flexibility at pick-up, allowing the Magnon to adapt to uneven ground. Steel strippers are mounted between the tines, low to the ground, to ensure optimum material flow. They also prevent grass from wrapping around inside the pick-up.
The pick-up is powered hydraulically, meaning the speed is infinitely adjustable and can be set according to harvest conditions. A standard feature of the Magnon is that the pick-up rotor speed is adjusted automatically, in line with the speed of the tractor.
The simple to adjust guide wheels ensure the operating depth can be easily set. A wide, additional guide roller, mounted behind the pick-up, is available as an optional extra. This ensures optimum adaptation to the ground even on wet or uneven terrain.
From the 2020/21 season, the Magnon CFS range will completely replace the Tera-Vitesse.
The Magnon CFS 430 retails from £119,114 + VAT (tandem steering axle, 78m3 or 42m3 DIN).
