Kuhn: New front-mounted disc mowers for faster solo or combination operations

By WniF editors

Kuhn Farm Machinery has expanded its range of front-mounted disc mowers with the addition of two new machines, both of which can be used either as solo machines or in combination with rear-mounted gear.

The GMD3125F (3.10m working width) and GMD3525F (3.50m) join Kuhn’s existing line-up of 2.80m and 3.10m machines, and have been designed for solo operations or for use in combination with rear-mounted mowers or as part of a triple gang setup where working widths can extend to 10m.

Both new models are equipped with Kuhn’s maintenance-free Optidisc cutter bar (seven cutting discs on the 3125, eight on the 3525, two Fast-Fit knives per disc) and use twin PTO-powered swathing drums to produce a well-centred swath, the width of which can be varied between 1.00m and 1.20m.

The new machines feature Kuhn’s Lift-Control hydraulic suspension system: this fast-acting, low-ground-pressure system allows the mower to accurately follow ground contours and safeguards the quality and cleanliness of the forage sward by reducing soil contamination as a result of ground impacts. It also helps to reduce wear and tear on working parts and skids, and keeps fuel consumption to a minimum.

The pendulum style suspension also enables a 30-degree range of cross-plane movement and up to 70cm of vertical travel. The mowing units can also rotate from front to rear in a range of -6.5 and +5.0 degrees for added ground contouring capability.

All machines in the GMD mower range are protected by Kuhn’s Protectadrive system, which prevents impact damage by allowing the individual disc’s drive shaft to shear. Kuhn’s hardwearing Flexprotect side guards are also fitted as standard.

The addition of the GMD3125F and GMD3525F machines means Kuhn now has a range of six front-mounted disc mowers, with models suited to all types of farms and tractors, from upland livestock to lowland dairy farms, and from low- to high-horsepower tractors.
