Hydraulic roller extends versatility of Kuhn hedge and grass cutters

Kuhn’s mid-range Poly-Longer and Multi-Longer hedge and grass cutters are now available with a hydraulic roller that provides greater control when operating on verges, ditches and riverbanks, and allows a rapid switch between operational modes.

Controlled directly from the tractor spool, the roller ensures good ground-following when cutting uneven terrain, with a fully extended range of 62mm outside the flail head. For hedge cutting, the roller is retracted out of the way to ensure a neat and even trim.

The Poly-Longer is a 5.5m horizontal reach machine with 4-function joystick with electric proportional control. It has a parallelogram pivot-mounted straight arm and 116 degree slew. The hydraulic roller option is available on the 1.2m belt drive flail head and adds £986 to a machine price of £24,593.

The larger Multi-Longer GII has a horizontal reach of 5.7m and has 4-function joystick with electric proportional control. It has the OptiView parallelogram pivot-mounted semi-leading arm and 116 degree slew, with a 1.2m belt drive flail head. Hydraulic roller adds £986 to a machine price of £30,847.
