Kuhn launches telescopic arm hedge and verge cutter

Kuhn Farm Machinery has strengthened its position in the long reach hedge and verge cutter market with the launch of its first telescopic arm machine.

With a fully extended horizontal range of 7.4 metres and maximum vertical height of 8.4 metres, the Multi-Longer GII 7457 E-TPAL is KUHN’s longest reach hedge cutter yet and significantly enhances its offering in the sector.

Designed to meet the needs of the professional operator, the Multi-Longer GII 7457 E-TPAL has a parallelogram pivot-mounted straight arm configuration, with the heavy duty frame and main boom robustly constructed of high yield steel. With a 57hp hydraulic motor and 21kW air-cooled radiator with double heat exchanger, this machine has a recommended annual use of up to 1,500 hours per year.

As with other models in the KUHN range, the Multi-Longer GII has a 1.2 metre reinforced belt drive flail head as standard, with 240-degree flail head rotation. There is also the option of a 1.5 metre flail head with hydraulic roller.

Operators have the advantage of a 4-function joystick with electric proportional control, with a range of features including ground following aided by hydropneumatic lift control.

The Multi-Longer GII 7547 E-TPAL benefits from having KUHN’s Stabi-Link quick hitch axle mounting as standard, offering increased stability as well as fast mounting/uncoupling to allow the tractor to be quickly freed up for other work. This hedge and verge cutter is recommended for use on tractors with a minimum 120hp and 6.5 tonnes in weight. The standard machine has a recommended retail price of £46,993.
