The EasyCut B 950 Collect from Krone is the first butterfly mower combination that uses swath merging augers but no conditioners. According to Krone, this reduces the machine weight and tractor power which gives better fuel economy.
Particularly suitable for work in sloping fields or boggy terrain but also in whole crop silage for biogas production as operators can vary the ground pressure on the move.
The EasyCut B 950 Collect works at a width of 9.45m and focuses on minimizing crop loss and gentle treatment as it merges the material. You can increase the machines ground clearance by raising the lighting kit at the back.
Depending on the crop and conditions, it can cut up to 14ha per hour. A high-performance mower conditioner is also available with cross augers. The cross augers are 45cm in diameter and arranged right behind the cutter bar and transport the crop gently to the middle of the machine without loss creating a uniform swath.
Operators can select one of three swathing options – swathing on one or both sides or wide spreading. Each option is activated from the tractor seat.
All three mowers in the combination have the fully sealed EasyCut cutter bar featuring SafeCut, SmartCut and impact damage protection.
