LAMMA to see world first Krone maize header comfort guard

Alongside kit including Krone’s Swadro TC 1370; Comprima V 150 XC Plus, Comprima CF 155 XC Plus will be the company’s XCollect 900-3 maize header with the world’s first integral front guard, designed to improve road safety and operator comfort.

The integral front comfort guard allows operators to prepare the machine for road travel without leaving the cab, using fingertip controls – folding the unit to transport width, securing it in transport position and fitting the lights.

Also on display will be an MX forage wagon with a free SpeedSharp unit worth £7,740.00 when ordered with any MX or RX version by 29th February whilst stocks last.

Swadro TC 1370 is a four rotor rake and hydraulic rotor suspension designed specifically for contractor and professional operators. It has a working width from 10.80m to 13.70m, which is a 20cm increase on the Swadro 1400 Plus. Swath widths are from 1.40m to 2.60m.

Featuring the Krone LiftTine forward speed can be increased by up to 20% without compromising on crop losses. Duramax cam track, which is lubrication and maintenance free, provides accurate control of the tine arm to produce a perfect box shaped swath.

Transport tyre dimensions are available as 620/40R22.5 or 710/35R22.5 with bogie wheels matching these tyre sizes. The compact rear end has LED lights and warning panels for adequate road safety and good visibility in work. Load sensing hydraulics come as standard, but there is an option for non load sensing too.

Krone’s combination baler wrappers Comprima CV 150 XC Plus (variable chamber for 1.00m–1.50m bales) and Comprima CF 155 XC Plus (with the well-proven semi variable chamber for 1.25–1.50m diameter bales) will be on show.

Comprima Plus has a camless pick-up and five wavy rows of helical tines designed to evenly distribute material across the full width of the feed chamber and the XCut rotor cutter.

The precision cutting system has been designed for maximum flexibility with 17 or 26 blades with cutting lengths of 42mm and 64mm. The rotor is made from extra tempered steel with a hard wearing edge on the cutting system to ensure extended use and stability. Novogrip belts and sturdier chains and sprockets ensure bale roll is not compromised.

All Comprima Plus machines can either take film or net wrapping and a weighing system is available for the CF and CV models.
