Kuhn's largest folding shredder has a 6.1 metre cut
Machines across a wide size spectrum in addition to hydraulic left hand side offsetting on most models give Kuhn’s current VKM flail mower range broad appeal across agricultural and amenity sectors.At the top end, Kuhn now includes the 6.1 metre hydraulically folding VKM 610, whilst 1.7 and 1.9 metre models extend the range for smaller scale operators. Both of the smaller models, plus the established 2.1, 2.4, 2.8 and 3.05 metre machines, can now be hydraulically offset to the left via a sliding tube on the hitch frame, making them suitable for roadside maintenance.
The VKM shredders are based on a system of forged steel bevelled hammer knives working against a welded comb counter bar and a second straight counter bar, which is bolted in place. This design gives the machines their robust and universal operating capability, making them suitable for shredding grass, undergrowth, stubbles, plant residue and light wood.
All models feature a helical arrangement of the hammer knives on the rotor, which ensures a more even rotation cycle, thereby reducing vibration and power requirement and increasing suction effect.
