There’s always plenty of new equipment at the Sunbelt Expo, giving growers the opportunity to “kick the tires,” but they can also get into the fields on a 600-acre working farm to view harvest and tillage demonstrations and test-drive and use the latest equipment available to the agricultural industry.
Kuhn round balers
Kuhn VB Round Balers — The VB 2160 and 2190 variable chamber round balers are new to Kuhn, but our baler factory has been the leader in baling technology for over 25 years. The 2160 is a 4x5 baler and the 2190 produces 4x6 round bales. Both models are available with an open throat intake design, an OptiFeed non-cutting rotor or a 14-knife Opticut integral rotor. OptiFeed and Opticut machines feature a wide 91’ pickup. VB balers provide high-performance throughput in diverse crop conditions. A well-designed pre-chamber ensures fast, consistent bale starting, while the Progressive Density System provides firm bales with variable core density. Completed bales are secured with twine and/or net wrap through a fast, efficient tying cycle. Kuhn balers provide outstanding performance from start to finish for quality bales with optimum integrity. A simple design with fewer moving parts helps these balers provide the years of reliable service expected from quality Kuhn machines.
Kuhn’s SR 300 series wheel rakes provide hay producers with both high-capacity raking and exceptional transportability in a 10- or 12-wheel rake.
The SR 300 benefits include:
•Easily-transportable carted design with centrally-positioned chassis for better maneuverability.
•High-clearance chassis and rake beams for high capacity. Optimized flotation allows rake wheels to follow ground contours without the need for caster wheels.
•Exclusive hydraulic, telescopic folding system opens and closes the rake with no need to leave the tractor. “On-the-go” adjustment of the working width provides greater operator convenience and does not change the windrow width.
•Front and rear rake wheels can be locked up to match conditions. In heavy crops, twin windrows can be formed for additional drying or for harvest by small square balers.
•Options include the choice of a single or tandem axle, a lock for single-side raking, and a “V-type” splitter-wheel system.
