The Krone Jet Effect ensures the tines will not dig into the ground when the rotors lower and lift. Emulating the touch-down and take-off of an airplane, the leading rotors lift off first and the rear rotors follow. Vice versa when lowering into work, the wheels on the rear touch down first followed by the wheels at the front – an intelligent system to protect the swath and avoid crop contamination.
Both rotors have cardanic suspension. On the front rotor this is implemented via the float position of the drawbar-mounted ram and on the rear rotor by the elongated hole. This gives both rotors full hugging abilities so they rake clean even in difficult conditions or on undulating terrain. Along with this, the central suspension ensures the rotors are kept level when being lifted and lowered on the headlands.
All rakes bigger than the TC680 (6.8m) come with electric height control as standard. The user can set the height of each rotor independently from the comfort of the cab. Single rotor lift is standard across all Krone rakes.
All Krone rakes have Krone Lift Tines as standard specification. Kinked in two positions, the Krone Lift Tines give a better performance because of the steep angle in heavy crops. As a result the machine can work faster and still deliver uniform swaths. Lift Tines can be set to a higher work height than traditional tines which reduces the risk of crop contamination as well as tine wear.
The DuraMax cast iron cam track with a 3 year warranty is at the heart of all Krone rakes. The steep cam track provides precision guidance for the tines. A small track diameter in combination with massive cams make for quiet running, reduces wear and leads to well-shaped swaths. Best of all, the DuraMax cam track is completely maintenance free and self lubricating.
The Swadro tine arms receive precision control from the cam track, made from strong tubular steel, the tine arms offer maximum longevity and reliability. With the grooved bearings spaced wide, the tine arms perform reliably in all conditions. Both the bearing housing and the bearings themselves are maintenance-free and permanently lubricated. Tine replacement? Simply undo two bolts and remove the entire arm complete with the bearing and roller.
REAR MOUNTED SINGLE ROTOR
The three-point hitch single rotor rake comes in working widths of 3.5m to 4.6m. Many of the features of the single rotor rake are the same as those on the high output rakes such as duramax cam track, Krone patented Lift Tine and stepless work width control for a consistently high-quality forage.
TRAILED TWIN ROTOR CENTRE DELIVERY
The Swadro TC centre delivery rakes stand out for producing exceptionally consistent swaths while working at extremely high rates, flexible work widths and maximum ha/h performance. These machines offer work widths from 5.7m to 10m with variable running gear, adjustable track widths, extra high lift-out and high ground clearance for easy headland turns.
TRAILED TWIN ROTOR SIDE DELIVERY
Featuring as many as 13 tines, this KRONE 710/26 T twin-rotor side delivery rake not only offers excellent value for money but also the cleanest rakes. Swadro 710/26 T forms single and double swaths as well as two narrow swaths side by side. Naturally it offers hydraulic work width control and swath width control by adjusting the main beam.
Twin swaths as standard specification. As a result, the machine covers work widths between 6.92m and 8.20m.
Raking nearly 20 metres into one double windrow, the KRONE Swadro TS 970 is the ideal match for a high-capacity precision-chop forage harvester. Offering stunning work rates of up to 10 ha/h, this machine is the performance booster in your harvest chain. A wide wheel base and Ackermann steering give this high-capacity rake offers enormous agility and very easy shunting.
REAR MOUNTED DOUBLE EASYCUT
Swadro TC1370 Plus from Krone have four rotors that work at variable widths between 11m and 13.5m coincide with work rates of up to 13 ha per hour. These machines stand out for enormous acreages, quick changeovers, rapid travel, great longevity and easy use. With plenty of landmark features including convenient setting options that make the job a lot easier for operators and produce optimum swaths at high outputs.
SELF-PROPELLED MOWER CONDITIONER
The Swadro 2000 boasts six rotors that rake 10.00 m-19.00 m of work. This is the ideal machine for large-scale farmers and contractors. Quickest changeovers, fast road travel, long lifetime cycles, ultimate user comfort and efficient swathing at up to 20ha/h are naturally included in the package. The large work width of the machine reduces the total swath length by approx. 30% and boosts the capacities of the following harvesters by up to 15%.
