The new 3.5m working width FC 3515 R rear mounted vertical folding mower conditioner completes KUHN’s offering for cereal farms and contractors.
The FC 3515 R mower conditioner is equipped with SQUAREFLEX roller conditioners. Large 24mm diameter, exclusive profile rollers and a synchronised double drive are standard. Some parts made of lightweight materials such as aluminium to limit the total weight of the machine to be similar to that of a finger conditioner machine. This design ensures effective conditioning of all fodder (lucerne, ryegrass, meslin, wheat etc.) and a high output while minimising maintenance time.
The sturdy OPTIDISC ELITE cutter bar and the FAST-Fit quick fastening knife system ensure high-quality cutting in all conditions, operator comfort and ease, and low maintenance costs.
The LIFT-CONTROL suspension provides powerful and constant ground pressure relief for improved protection of the plant cover. Coupled with the breakaway system, it protects the machine against obstacles. The pivot point is strongly offset to the left to also protect the working parts, particularly at the first disc level, with a non-stop return to the working position.
An adaptable counterweight mass on the left side of the chassis is available as optional equipment. This reduces any imbalance at the level of the coupling to the tractor and is designed for farms with a steep contour or those that are using medium-sized tractors.
Just like the FC 3115 R model of the same range, the mower unit folds up to 126° to obtain maximum compactness for transport and optimum balance of weight on the tractor rear wheels.
Combined with a front mower, this machine achieves a high work output.
This mower-conditioner completes the FC 1015 range, which already includes the FC 3115 D, FC 3515 D (finger conditioner) and FC 3115 R (roller conditioner) models.
