Farmers or contractors looking for high outputs at silage making time will be interested in two additions to Kuhn Farm Machinery’s centrally articulated mounted mower range.
The GMD 3110 and 3510 disc mowers offer 3.1 metre and 3.5 metre working widths respectively and are the latest models to include the patented Lift Control facility and amongst the first to feature Kuhn’s new generation Optidisc cutter bar, which is designed to improve quality of cutting, increase protection and durability, and reduce maintenance. Central articulation gives these machines the great advantages of improved ground following and even load distribution, which ensure an accurate cut even at high speeds. Like other models in this range, which includes 4.0 metre and 4.4 metre formats, these machines benefit from Lift Control, which is equipped with an integrated hydraulic linkage enabling the cutter bar to be lifted out of work on headlands (to a clearance of 40 cm) without raising the 3-point linkage. Ground clearance is also constant over the whole width of the machine.
The hydraulic lift linkage also incorporates a hydro-pneumatic shock absorber to reduce the shock loads on the tractor during transport or when turning at the headlands. This reduces mechanical wear and improves operator comfort.
Non-stop break-back control is also included on GMD 3110 and 3510 models, minimising the risk or inconvenience of damage in the event of hitting an obstacle. Fitted with Kuhn’s new Fast-Fit blades system as standard, these new models have basic prices of £10,113 (GMD 3110) and £10,597 (GMD 3510).
