Krone UK will exhibit its BiG X630 forager and the ActiveMow at Scotgrass 2016, which is taking place at SRUC Crichton Royal Farm, Dumfries (DG1 4AS), on May 18.
One of nine models in the range, the BiG X630 is the largest powered BiG X with the narrow body and is powered by an MTU 6R 1500 15.6-litre, six-cylinder engine. Power can be matched to crop yield using PowerSplit feature that has two operating modes Eco-Power 460hp and X-Power 596hp.
As a result of 710/70R42 front tyres and a choice of rear tyres fitted to the wishbone suspended axle, road and field work has been significantly improved. The cab features a large touch screen terminal and Krone joystick for easy and comfortable operation.
The BiG X 630 features the new MaxFlow chopping drum with a choice of 20, 28 or 36 knives providing a chop length ranging from 3mm to 31mm. The drum has twice the crop carrying capacity giving it a significant efficiency boost. VariQuick allows the corn conditioner to be engaged and disengaged in a matter of minutes.
A useful feature for opening up maize fields is StreamControl, which adjusts the force of the crop flow, allowing it to be blown further.
Scotgrass working plots will see the ActiveMow R280 making its debut, with a 2.8m working width. It’s a simple robust design that provides a side pivoting mower bed and spring suspensions that makes it ideal for small to medium farmers.
ActiveMow now features SafeCut disc protection system and SmartCut mower bed with optimised disc overlap for difficult conditions. There are now five models in the range (2.0m to 3.6m), which replace the company’s AM mowers.
