New mower conditioners now available with rollers (TLR and TCR)

The majority of new generation mower conditioners are now also available with a roller conditioner. Model details are as follows: FC 2860, FC 3160 and FC 3560 TLR with side drawbar, and FC 3160, FC 3560 and FC 4060 TCR in central drawbar versions.

This type of conditioner is essentially designed to handle delicate forage such as alfalfa, as well as for operating in certain types of thick stemmed forage like oats or immature rye.

Two choices of roller are available:
- Roller set in polyurethane with specific SQUAREFLEX profile to ensure maximum stem pinch no matter how the stems are positioned between the 2 rollers.
- Roller set in steel, more economical, and especially suited to regions confronted with highly abrasive conditions.

Both roller types operate at a speed of 780 rpm and boast a large diameter of 240 mm. Large diameter rollers constitute a real advantage for conditioning and improve the transport capacity of heavy or voluminous forage.

The roller drive system also has some specific characteristics:
- Integral drive system in closed gearbox (maintenance-free) providing perfect and reliable roller synchronization.
- POSIGUARD safety system to protect the machine and its rollers in case of foreign bodies passing through.

There are multiple possibilities in terms of forage delivery: adjustable width swath delivery or wide spreading for fast, uniform drying.
