Your benefits

Electric proportional controls as standard

With the EP joystick, you will feel like a professional driver as soon as you step in the cab

4 electric proportional functions as standard!

The MULTI-LONGER GII hedge and grass cutters are operated with 4 electric proportional functions: pivot, main boom, outer boom and flail head orientation. The movement speed increases exponentially as the joystick is shifted further along one direction. The machine allows for smooth and precise operation, while providing unbeatable driving comfort.

For increased safety and precision, the proportional effect works in both directions: up and down. Precision is guaranteed regardless of the type of job (verge, bank, ditch, hedge, etc.).

For efficiency, the functions of the main boom, outer boom, flail head orientation, pivot and floating head can be activated simultaneously with the ergonomic joystick and the position of the various buttons. The EP joystick can also be adjusted to the size of your hand.

The EP joystick is easy to install even in the smallest cabs. It is connected to the machine by a single small-diameter electric cable.

T15 control console

The T15 control console can be removed from the main control panel to suit all cab layouts. It can be easily detached and positioned at eye level and/or within reach.

The console has many features:
  • Hour meter and oil temperature display,
  • Controls for lift float, automatic arm break-back and rotor (grass or wood direction) with anti-reversing safety,
  • Indicator lights, fan, float and temperature alert, floating flail head.
The console also includes troubleshooting and repair modes for machine maintenance.

Difficult jobs are now a breeze!

When you invest in a 57 hp hedge and grass cutter with a reach of 5.70 m you basically need a machine that can go anywhere. The MULTI-LONGER GII hedge cutters have been designed with this in mind.

Whether you're working alone along a field, river or forest or performing roadside maintenance for professionals, the kinematics of the MULTI-LONGER GIIs make them highly versatile machines.

QUICK SET-UP.
The many coupling solutions and easy cab installation make it faster to prepare the machine and uncouple it from the tractor.

AN “ALL-TERRAIN” MACHINE!
The pivot for the slewing action, the vertical reach of up to 6.83 m, the parallelogram-mounted and OPTIview semi-leading arm and accessories such as the SRS (Shift Rail System) are all high-tech advantages when it comes to landscape and roadside maintenance.

Maximum clearance

The cylinder of the outer boom is positioned above the arm so you can work over the top of fences or hedges without snagging. The parallelogram models can reach over even higher fences due to the anchor point of the arm on the rocker.
Maximum clearance

Narrow paths

The centred pivot of the MULTI-LONGER models and their kinematics make it possible to work in narrow paths. You can work on the vertical plane as close as possible to the tractor without the arm extending to the opposite side.
Narrow paths

Reach far!

With a horizontal reach of 5.70 m, the MULTI-LONGER GII hedge cutters work easily on wide hedgerows, distant banks and both sides of major rivers. On tall embankments and at the bottom of canals, the large clearance under the arm and the "deep ditch" reach of 3.56 m will keep you working safely.
5.00 to 5.70 m horizontal reach

Reach high!

Their vertical reach of up to 6.83 m means you can work afterwards with your harvesting equipment as close as possible to the hedges without any risk of snagging your machines. A "hydraulic anti-tilt" system automatically manages the changes in the arm’s centre of gravity, thus avoiding any risk of the tractor tipping over.
Vertical reach up to 6.83 m

KUHN MULTI-LONGER GII 5057 P Hedge and Grass Cutter: straight arm kinematics power

MULTI-LONGER GII 5057 P: straight arm kinematics power

The MULTI-LONGER GII 5057 P is a machine for anyone looking for a compact machine with a horizontal reach of 5.00 m and a 57 hp system to power a "thick wood" rotor. Thanks to its compact size, it can work in hedgerow areas where the paths are narrow. Like all models in the MULTI-LONGER GII range, the 5057 P model is equipped with the EP (4-function Electric Proportional) control system as standard, making it intuitive and comfortable to use.

MULTI-LONGER GII 5557 P: straight arm with extra reach!

The MULTI-LONGER GII 5557 P has the same features and benefits as the 5057 P version: 57 hp system, EP control, structure fully reconstituted in VHYS and 116° pivot, while providing more horizontal reach (5.50 m). It is ideal for specific jobs requiring a longer arm such as canals or deep ditches. Like all MULTI-LONGER GII models, the 5557 P version has a 1.20 m flail head with belt drive.

MULTI-LONGER GII 5557 SP: visibility and performance

The SP model in the MULTI-LONGER GII range features the OPTIview semi-leading arm. The geometry of the outer boom allows the operator to always keep an eye on the cutting tool without having to turn around. The arm is offset 985 mm forward (distance between the rotor shaft and the hitching shaft at the tractor ball joints).
As with all OPTIview kinematics where the cutting tool is at the same height as the driver (depending on the tractor make and model), it will be easier to see and avoid obstacles.
KUHN MULTI-LONGER GII 5557 SP Hedge and Grass Cutter: visibility and performance

MULTI-LONGER GII 5757 SPAL: welcome to the professional category!

Based on the performance of the MULTI-LONGER GII range with its 57 hp system, the MULTI-LONGER GII 5757 SPA has been designed to meet the needs of all maintenance professionals (local councils, agricultural contractors, etc.) with OPTIview semi-leading arm kinematics and parallelogram-mounted arm kinematics. The parallelogram is easy to control and provides added visibility. The main and outer booms are linked by a mechanical connecting rod so the operator can control the movement of the entire arm with just a single joystick movement.
