SIMA 2007 will be the first opportunity for UK visitors to see an array of new machines on offer from Kuhn Farm Machinery. Here is a preview of a number of highlights that are planned for the UK market during 2007.
Grassland MachineryAlso on display will be the FC 703 mower conditioner, which is designed for reverse drive tractors. This 7-metre machine was shown as a prototype at Grassland UK in 2006.
There’s plenty to see for those looking for drilling innovations, with the minimum tillage Megant the most novel offering from Kuhn. With a patented tine coulter design, the Megant provides a new economic drilling option for minimum tillage operators.
First seen in the UK at Tillage 2006, the latest Speedliner minimum tillage drill will be on view, and fans of Kuhn’s successful Venta pneumatic drill range will be pleased to see the latest model, the economic EC.
The 17-metre GF 17002 Gyrotedder will no doubt catch the eye in the grassland machinery section. Those familiar with Kuhn’s Gyrotedder range will note the patented Digidrive multiple finger coupling on this 16-rotor machine that becomes the biggest in Kuhn’s range.
Also on a grand scale is the new Merge Maxx 90 conveyor belt windrower, which offers a new approach to gathering silage crops. With a 9m pick-up, the Merge Maxx has the capability to form a single windrow from a 21-metre spread of grass, enough to feed even the hungriest forage harvesters.
An updated model from the Integra mechanical drill range will be exhibited, as will the latest Venta/HR power harrow Combiliner combination.
Kuhn’s Euromix vertical auger diet feeders are major sellers in the UK, and now this concept is available in a self-propelled format as the SPV.
Kuhn’s Axis spreader, featuring its unique CDA distribution system, was launched for the larger operator in 2005 and has been very well received by the UK market. SIMA 2007 sees the launch of Axis 20.1, a model for the smaller to medium sized operator.
