The four-rotor rakes GA 13231 and GA 15231 work from 8.40 m to 12.50 m and from 9.50 to 14.70 m respectively. Their 100% hydraulic drive saves you one hour of maintenance per day. They feature numerous developments, both in terms of raking quality, ease of use and machine life.
These rakes offer high productivity thanks to their very wide working width. The presence of a single greaseable transmission saves you up to one hour of maintenance per day, compared to a mechanically driven rake of equivalent size. This time saving allows you to increase your yield by windrowing up to ten more hectares per day.

Your benefits

Less maintenance

The 100% hydraulic rotor drive is exclusive to KUHN

Exclusive: 4 rotors 100% hydraulic

One hour less maintenance, one hour more windrowing! The rotors are driven hydraulically by hydraulic pumps driven by a single transmission to minimise maintenance. Forget about the daily greasing of secondary transmissions. You save up to one hour compared to a mechanically driven rake of the same size. This can make a difference when rain is threatening and the crop has to be brought in quickly. This reduces the need for maintenance. Other benefits include smooth, quiet operation and minimal wear and tear. The hydraulic unit of the GA 13231 and GA 15231 rakes is positioned on the swivelling headstock of the machine frame. This ensures that the primary transmission is always perfectly aligned with the tractor, even in tight turns. In addition, the PTO speed can be modified from the cab for perfect adaptation to the type and volume of crop. You can choose between two rotation frequencies: 1,000 or 750 rpm to save fuel.

MASTER DRIVE GIII housing: reliable and wear-resistant

With a new hydraulic drive and an even more powerful MASTER DRIVE GIII housing, your machine can cope with high volumes of crop and difficult conditions. The transmission is made by spur gears. Tolerances are therefore tightly controlled for a more reliable and robust assembly.
The MASTER DRIVE GIII housing can cope with intensive conditions

Crop quality first

The speed of the front rotors is increased by 20% thanks to the BOOST function

A boost for well-shaped windrows

A regular windrow is especially pleasant for drivers of the following harvesting machines. It is most easily collected by pick-ups of crop harvesters, self-loading trailers and balers. Smooth driving means greater comfort! The speed of the front rotors can be increased by 20% compared to the rear rotors. All this without having to move from the tractor cab. The boost function ensures that the crop is moved more towards the centre of the machine. It is less twisted, as it does not roll on the ground. This allows the rear rotors to form a uniform and airy swath. It is an ideal solution for perfect crop drying.

Windrow formation: a plus thanks to the double-curved arms

To protect the soil and the plant cover, optimal adaptation of the rotors to the changing terrain is just as important as low ground pressure that limits compaction.
KUHN's four rotor rakes are fully equipped to meet these requirements:
Suspended from the junction of a pivot point and independent of the main frame, the rotors can swivel in all directions thanks to the 3D rotor pendulum joint. They precisely and efficiently follow the variations in the terrain. The result: a flawless performance, the assurance of a clean crop and a healthy plant cover.
The wide tyres help to reduce soil compaction and ensure the stability of the rotors, even on slopes. Stability on slopes is also the strength of the optional radial tyres.
Each rotor is equipped with four pivoting wheels. This ensures that the plant cover is preserved, even in tight turns. Thanks to their position close to the tines, the rotors adapt immediately and efficiently to changes in the terrain.
The front rotors are now suspended by hydraulic cylinders, which allows for a more precise adjustment of the suspension. In addition, the ground pressure is automatically corrected depending on the working width. The user can therefore easily adapt the machine to the working conditions. A hydraulic reduction of the rear rotors is also available as optional equipment. It ensures a load transfer to the machine frame, thereby increasing stability when working on steep slopes. A hydraulic cylinder placed in front of the rotor head controls its lowering. Like an aeroplane, the rear is lowered first, then the front. The tines do not come into contact with the soil thanks to this STABILIFT jet effect.
The rotors adapt perfectly to the variations in the terrain to protect the plant cover

Quick to get started

The rake is easy to operate with the CCI 1200 ISOBUS terminal and the CCI A3 joystick

A new, more user-friendly terminal interface

The electronic architecture includes a new ISOBUS module. The latter is more powerful, has more capacity and offers more possibilities. The ISOBUS terminal interface for machine control has been redesigned and is more user-friendly. It is quick and intuitive for the user or their employees to get to grips with the machine. It is also capable of generating graphic icons related to the various functions when using the CCI A3 ISOBUS joystick.

All settings are in the cab thanks to ISOBUS

All rotor settings can be adjusted from the control terminal without interrupting work:
  • Rotor lift,
  • Working and windrow width,
  • Individual working width adjustment,
  • Rake height,
  • Machine folding, etc.
To make it even easier to control, a joystick can be connected to the terminal. Two ISOBUS solutions are available (ISOBUS terminal CCI 800 or CCI 1200). Each has an integrated colour touch screen. It is also possible to use the ISOBUS terminal already installed on the tractor or other competitor terminals. Contact your KUHN partner to find out more about equipment compatibility.
A pre-programmed sequence, integrated into the ISOBUS software, facilitates and optimises turning manoeuvres at the headland. It can be easily adapted to your needs. Thanks to the angle sensors, the rotors are always raised to the preset height, regardless of the working width. Once all the pre-sets have been made, all you have to do is press a button. Sit back and let the electronics do the work!
All settings can be made from the cab using the CCI 1200 ISOBUS terminal.

Adapt the windrow to the volume of crop and the width of the pick-up

The working widths from 8.40 to 12.50 m and from 9.50 to 14.70 m allow for outstanding yields, which is one of the many benefits of the GA 13231 and GA 15231 rakes.
These large widths require excellent adaptability of the machine to the requirements of the crop harvesters or balers downstream of the harvesting chain. This flexibility allows you to adjust working and windrow widths continuously and hydraulically from the cab:
The position of the front rotors can be adjusted in terms of working width via hydraulic cylinders and angle sensors.
The windrow width can be changed at any time by repositioning the rear rotors. The windrow width is between 1.40 and 2.40 m (and up to 2.50 m with GA 15231).
Despite the large working widths, the four-rotor rakes are flexible enough to work in triangular-shaped fields. The ability to lift each rotor individually allows raking in the tips or avoiding obstacles. In addition, the large clearance under the rotors makes it easier to pass over windrows.
To adjust the raking height, the rotors can be adjusted simultaneously in pairs at the front or rear or individually. The height of the rotors is displayed both on the terminal screen and on the rotor frame.
Windrow width is easily adjusted with the GA 13231 and GA 15231 rakes

More stability on slopes or on the road

The hitch with integrated suspension improves driving flexibility and increases stability between the tractor and the rake when turning. Deteriorated roads are no longer a problem. You will appreciate bends and the smooth, individual lifting of the rotors in the lift arms. Despite their impressive dimensions, the four-rotor rakes are relatively compact in transport and easy to move:
In the transport position, the machines reach a height of less than 4.00 m without having to dismantle any tine arms.
Their low centre of gravity ensures good stability on the road.
