Due to the high reliability, excellent crop cutting, and overall adaptability to varrying terrains, the 100 series cutterbar is a staple in the premium series. 

See for yourself by taking a closer look at what the 100 series cutterbar has to offer.

Protection should an obstacle be struck: the PROTECTADRIVE system is designed to protect the cutter bar gear train and minimizes the risk of downtime. 

High wear resistance: knife attachment hardware is fully protected. For added safety, heat treated steel cups are welded to the disc. 

Increased service life: disc pinion shaft bearings endure radial forces for maximum bearing life. This optimum position improves the load balance 

Withstands the highest loads: special high-capacity bearings fitted in a one-piece sealed housing are not subject to distortion. 

Minimum wear or distortion risk: idler gear fasteners are located in heat treated steel cups. Correct alignment is ensured without the risk of distortion. 

Long term reliability: large-diameter gearwheels in high tensile forged steel with reinforced teeth. 

Perfect sealing: top-quality o-rings used on cutter bar Bearing housings for a perfect, leak free seal.

Why you need a Kuhn mower for your hay farm.

Lots of hay mowers are currently available in the market, left right and centre, but why do you need to choose a Kuhn mower from the rest?

One simple reason I would share with you is the fact that Kuhn mowers are strong, easy to service and are safe from breakage especially on the new Kuhn series mowers currently available in the market.

Some disc mowers may look like a Kuhn from outside. However, what is on the inside is more important. Kuhn’s design and construction standards ensure a long life and reliable operation. Assure yourself by taking a closer look on what the series 100 cutter bar has to offer.

  • Withstand the highest loads : special high-capacity bearings fitted in a one piece sealed housing not subject to distortion.
  • Increased service life : disc pinion shaft bearings endure radial force for longest bearing life. This optimum position improves the load balance.
  • Protection should an obstacle be struck : the Protevtadrive system designed to protect the cutter bar gear train and minimizes downtime risks in full season.
  • Highly wear resistant : knife attachment hardware is fully protected. For added safety, heat treated steel cups are welded to the disc.
  • Minimum wear or distortion risks : idler gear fasteners are located in heat treated steel cups. Correct alignment is ensured without the risk of distortion.
  • Long -term reliability : larger diameter gearwheels in high tensile forged steel with reinforced teeth.

    Minimized Downtime

  • The disc bearing station can be removed and mounted quickly and easily. A possible repair is carried out at reduced costs from the outside with minimum downtime. Total safety in case an obstacle is struck, the threaded pins of the disc housing are solidly linked to the upper half casing. There is no weak point or risk that they could be ripped off.

KUHN MOUNTED DISC MOWERS

Today, all high-perfomance farms are aware of the importance of basic forage for their herds. All the extra energy available in the forage is reflected in high productivity and hence high revenues.

How to achieve top quality forage

With KUHN mowers you can count on several features, which helps keeping the forage clean, avoid it is chopped and preserve the swath. Features for an optimized ground pressure and travel range have been put into action on both series.

Important parts, as the attachment frame have been reinforced to enhance the machine’s stability even more.

Grass must be cut not chopped

The crop should be quickly ejected into the swath and only cut once. Double cutting causes higher crop losses, delays regrowth and increases the power requirement on the tractor.

Mow at the right time

Especially for silage, harvesting at the right stage means gaining the full value of forage plants : sugars, proteins, minerals and dry matter. Therefore, capitalizing on tight weather windows at the stage when the forage is ready, is an important building block to preserve the forage quality.

Specific Design of the Cutting Unit.

The disc mower’s bevelled knives ensure a high quality clean and even cut.The oval shaped disc as well as the compact and streamlined profile of the cutter reduce soil and crop residue accumulation.

Cutting Height

An ideal and constant cutting height is obtained by simple adjustment of the top link.

Lifting skids are optionally available, if higher cutting heights are required.

Converging Disc Rotation

On KUHN mowers, each pair of discs is driven with a converging rotation. Be sure, No double cutting will degrade your forage.

Perfect Ground Contouring

The cutter bar is positioned close to the tractor wheels, ensuring a quick adaptation when driving over rough terrain.

An optional mounting of the suspension ensures an optimal balance of the cutter bar.

The disc mower flotation, which also allows appropriate working speeds.

Safety Breakaway Mechanism

Should an obstacle be struck, the safety breakaway causes the mower unit to swing slightly backwards. The impact is significantly reduced. You can reset the device simply by reversing.
