EasyCut – uniquely KRONE
- The cutterbar is permanently lubricated, fully welded and absolutely leak-proof
- Wedge-shaped profile Clean cutting
- Extra wide and hardened flotation skids
- No inner shoe Blockage-free mowing
- Massive spur gears Efficient driveline
SafeCut – the new disc shear-off system brings unique protection and operational reliability to EasyCut mowers with and without conditioner. The situation is familiar to every farmer – a disc collides with a foreign object, is damaged and requires repair. Offering a maximum of protection, the KRONE SafeCut does not transfer the full shockload to the spur gears. Instead, the roll pin in the sprocket driveshaft breaks when there is a momentary overload. The pinion shaft continues spinning, jacking up the disc in question and moving it out of the risk zone and the orbit of the neighbouring discs. As a result, SafeCut prevents damage to the spur gears and the neighbouring discs.
The moment of impact: The roll pin shears off. This cuts the driveline and stops the disc, which jacks 15 mm (0.6") up a thread. This eliminates any risk of colliding and damaging the neighboring disc.
The intelligent linkage system – a unique KRONE design
- Double mounting: center of gravity suspension, parallelogram linkage guidance
- Uniform ground pressure across the entire work width
- Large pivot range Perfect ground hugging
- Excellent guidance Clean cuts Less side thrust
Less side thrust and less ground pressure – that's the immediate effect of DuoGrip with center of gravity suspension. These are the findings of field tests. In March 2006, the German agricultural magazine DLZ published a test that compared two suspension systems – lateral suspension (KRONE AM 283 CV) and center-of-gravity suspension (KRONE EasyCut 280 CV). The findings were that the KRONE central suspension or rather center-of-gravity suspension is clearly superior to lateral suspension. A measurably reduced side thrust also suggests reduced ground pressure in the field.
Impact damage protection is the standard - Safety is another important area of excellence. For example, EasyCut 9140 pivots through a 1.40 m (4'7") arc as the entire mower rather than just the cutterbar breaks back upon impact. Once the obstacle is passed, the unit returns automatically into its working position.
Adjust to conditions: These mowers feature a coil spring that sets the tripping force of the impact damage protection system so this triggers within seconds upon impact.
The demands on a machine vary as the setting changes in which it is operated. Accordingly, KRONE delivers EasyCut 9140 CV in a choice of different specifications that cater for different local conditions. These options include the hydraulic cross conveyors, which feed the crop to the middle of the machine. KRONE delivers to farmers’ needs.
Cross conveyors boost efficiency. This specification is particularly beneficial in operations that do without windrowing, turning and tedding. Feeding the crop to the center of the machine for windrowing, the belts have proven equally well in hay and wet silage, where they enable easy pick-up by the following harvester. A triple mower system that uses only one cross conveyor in up-and-down operation will produce four windrows from a total working width of 17.40 m (57'1"). These four windrows total up to 11.50 m (37'9") and are ideal for further wilting and windrowing by a central four-rotor swather in one pass.
Firm grip on the crop: Nothing is left behind when the hydraulic cross conveyors start moving. These wide belts feature welded slats to feed huge masses of material in a smooth and continued flow to the center of the machine.
