The KRONE cutterbar
The KRONE cutterbar
  • Fully welded cutterbar: Robust, sealed and permanently lubricated
  • Durable satellite drive with large spur wheels: Very quiet running and optimum power transmission
  • Without inner shoe for trouble-free mowing

The completely welded cutterbar meets the highest quality standards, will remain leaktight and retain its shape even after long-term use. The large, oil-immersed spur wheels withstand sustained peak loads and are particularly quiet during operation.

Permanently lubricated
Permanently lubricated

Permanently lubricated: The completely welded cutterbar is maintenance free and won’t leak nor lose shape even in so many years of work. We give it special cleanings throughout the manufacturing process so we can implement permanent lubrication and eliminate the need for oil changes.

Leak proof and robust
Leak proof and robust

Leak-proof and robust: Using welding robots and CNC technology, KRONE manufactures its cutterbars to the highest quality standards, ensuring they are fully welded and permanently lubricated. After all, the cutterbar is the heart of every disc mower.

The original
The original

The satellite drive in the cutterbar – developed by ­­KRONE and successfully used worldwide for decades: Large spur wheels with up to 59 teeth transmit the main drive forces to the end of the cutterbar. The large-diameter gears rotate at reduced speeds, with a higher number of teeth meshing with the neighbouring spur wheels. This design stands out for quiet running, maximum power transmission and a long service life. Each disc is driven by its individual auxiliary gear which minimises the load on the disc.

No inner shoe
No inner shoe

No inner shoe: The cutterbar is driven by the right-angle gearbox just behind the inner top hat for blockage-free operation on the headland and in awkwardly shaped fields.

­­KRONE SmartCut and spreading modes
­­KRONE SmartCut and spreading modes
  • The wedge-shaped cutterbar guarantees clean cuts
  • Heavy-duty spur gears run in double bearings
  • Widely spaced bearings
  • Swathing or wide spreading depending on needs

The wedge-shaped cutterbar offers great flexibility to adjust through a large range of settings and leave a short stubble in meadows and pastures as well as long stubble in long-stemmed forage crops. An EasyCut mower delivers a reliable performance and clean cut.

Wide spreading
Wide spreading

With discs spinning in the B direction of rotation, EasyCut spreads the crops across the full width. All discs turn in pairs in alternating directions, spreading the material across the working width for faster and more uniform wilting.

Swathing
Swathing

To prevent the mown forage from being run over by the tractor wheels, the bearing housings are positioned so that the discs rotate towards the centre.

Convenient
Convenient

Convenient: The spur gears are arranged in a forward position and eccentrically inside the gearbox right under the discs. The small auxiliary spur gears are removed from above, the massive main gears gearbox from the side.

Stripe-free mowing with SmartCut
Stripe-free mowing with SmartCut

SmartCut: With some discs turning in pairs towards each other and others turning away from each other, it was necessary to redesign the degree of blade overlap to ensure cleanest cuts. For stripeless cuts in light and young crops, we have therefore increased blade overlaps on the discs turning outwards. In addition, the blades turning to the rear are set further apart to encourage a smooth flow of large volumes of crop..

Heavy-duty and flexible
Heavy-duty and flexible

The wedge-shaped cutterbar offers many height setting options. The spur gears run in massive double bearings, allowing the cutterbar to handle extremely high loads.

The KRONE quick-change blade system
The KRONE quick-change blade system
  • Quick-change blades are standard specification, allowing operators to swap blades in the field quickly
  • Modular disc design
  • Minimum blade wear: 360° blade Action
  • Excellent cuts from SmartCut: Optimum blade overlap

There are many reasons for choosing an EasyCut disc mower. Just think of the quick-change blades, the inexpensive wear parts and the perfect disc arrangement for stripeless cuts.

Cost saver
Cost saver

Cost saver: Worn blade fixing pins and wear parts are not an issue for KRONE EasyCut, because the modular design of the discs allows you to replace them individually. If you like, you can opt for bolts instead of pins.

Clean cuts
Clean cuts

Clean cuts: Blades of 112 mm length orbit with a generous overlap, producing the typically clean cuts and feeding the material to the rear in a consistent flow.

Minimised wear
Minimised wear

Minimised wear: The blades are free to spin 360° on their pins. They are hard-wearing and self-cleaning, well protected and will not foul with the blades on the neighbouring discs.

Added protection
Added protection

Added protection: We welded curved stops between the individual skids that protect the cutterbar from damage and also contoured the underside of the stops in such a way that no material can build up here and instead flows smoothly to the rear.

Making higher cuts
Making higher cuts

Making higher cuts: High-cutting skids are the solution for those who want 80mm and longer stubble. Depending on how you bolt the skids to the cutterbar, you can increase the cutting height by 30 mm or 50 mm, which is ideal in forage and whole crop silage.

Hovering over the sward
Hovering over the sward

Hovering over the sward: Made from hardened steel, the extra wide skids reduce the ground pressure and hence offer effective protection of both the cutterbar and the sward. The skids are bolted to the cutterbar so they are easy to replace.

Changing blades in an instant
Changing blades in an instant

Changing blades in an instant: Quick-change blades are a must for many farmers and contractors, These blades are quick and easy to reverse or replace in situ.

The KRONE SafeCut system
The KRONE SafeCut system
  • Fully protected drives for greater reliability
  • No collision with neighbouring cutting discs
  • Wear-free
  • Quick-change roll pins for minimum downtime and costs

Colliding discs may cause damage and involve costly repairs. ­­KRONE SafeCut offers maximum protection. The award winning system on all EasyCut models offers a unique level of protection and operator comfort. SafeCut is part of the basic equipment of all EasyCut F series disc mowers.

Effective and safe
Effective and safe

Effective and safe: If the system is suddenly overloaded, the impact is not directed to the spur gears in the driveline, instead a roll pin in the sprocket drive shaft shears off. The pinion shaft continues spinning, jacking up the disc in question, moving it out of the risk zone and the orbit of the neighbouring discs. As a result, SafeCut prevents damage to the spur gears and the neighbouring discs. Replacing the roll pin takes a few minutes and is not very costly.

Simply ingenious
Simply ingenious

Each disc on the mower has its own individual impact protection. When the blade hits an obstacle the shockload is transferred to a roll pin which breaks. As a result, the disc automatically threads 15 mm up on the drive shaft.

An ideal system
An ideal system

An ideal system: There is no load on the roll pins during operation. The bearing is tensioned by a nut and two clamping screws. As a result, the roll pins do not suffer from material fatigue and even after many hours of operation they will break only at their inbuilt load level.

Two-fold protection
Two-fold protection

Two-fold protection: Orbiting within the sphere of the mower bed and never protruding beyond the skids, the EasyCut discs benefit from two-fold protection. Additional protection comes from the standard SafeCut system.

The KRONE DuoGrip centre-of-gravity suspension
The KRONE DuoGrip centre-of-gravity suspension
  • Patented DuoGrip attachment of the cutterbar: Mounted in the centre of gravity and controlled by parallel arms
  • Uniform bearing pressure across the entire work width
  • Optimum guidance: Less side pull, clean cuts
  • Continuous suspension for superb contouring and sward protection

The ­­KRONE DuoGrip suspends the EasyCut mowers in their centre of gravity and guides them with suspension arms. This design allows the cutterbar to follow the ground contours even more accurately for a better protection of the sward. and high-quality forage even in difficult conditions.

Suspended in its centre of gravity
Suspended in its centre of gravity

Suspended in its centre of gravity: Maintaining a uniform pressure across the entire work width is a requirement that is thoroughly met by KRONE disc mowers, courtesy of the gearbox that is arranged on the inside of the machine where it shifts the centre of gravity to the side. This, the short arm and two extra braces give maximum stability while keeping the weight down – and delivering best results in rough going.

Accurate setup
Accurate setup

Accurate setup: For optimum mower control, position the tractor’s lower links in such a way that the two control arms on the mowers are level. The red arrow indicates the correct height of the lower links.

Strong
Strong

Strong: The mower is mounted on a pin which pivots in a ball bearing at the end of the outrigger arm. This design provides plenty of movement and exemplary contouring. In addition, the headstock features a standard and integral break-back system for effective impact protection.

Spreading the load
Spreading the load

Spreading the load: The parallelogram linkage absorbs lateral forces and guides the unit in direction of travel. At the same time, it helps reduce the load on the jib and the suspension system in the machine’s centre of gravity.

The ­­KRONE tine conditioner
The ­­KRONE tine conditioner
  • V-shaped steel tines at steep angles give intensive and perfect conditioning
  • The driveline dispenses with belts for frictional and low-maintenance Connections
  • Great operator comfort from mechanical conditioner gearbox
  • Adjustable baffle plates for enhanced conditioning

Efficiency is one parameter in hay and forage harvesting, quality is another. The high-performance KRONE CV conditioner with V-shaped steel tines spreads the crop at the full working width. The 640 mm diameter rotor and the helical arrangement of the tines warrant a continuous crop flow, high throughputs and superior conditioning.

Flexible spreading widths

The tine-to-counter sheet clearance is adjusted by a continuous notch system and presents another option to alter the degree of treatment. As you reduce the gap you increase the intensity of conditioning.

Full-width application
Full-width application

The V-shaped steel tines on each mower span across the entire work width and from the left to the right drum, providing a uniform crop flow across the full width and of course optimum conditioning. Guide plates are available for wide spreading and even faster conditioning.

Firm grip on the crop
Firm grip on the crop

The v-tines are made from hardened steel and mount at a steep angle, treating the forage intensively and powerfully. The tines pivot to the rear when hitting a foreign object whereas their restricted forward angle increases the pivot pin‘s lifetime.

The KRONE CR roller conditioners
The KRONE CR roller conditioners

The roller conditioner models (polyurethane rollers or M-Rolls)

  • The roller conditioner models (rubber rollers or M-Rolls)
  • Consistent crop flow by 25 cm diameter rollers
  • High throughput from powered crop processor rollers
  • Top quality from profiled rollers – thanks to their ‘meshing effect’
  • Choice of roller conditioners – polyurethane rollers or steel M-Rolls

Leafy crops like Lucerne or clovers require a different type of conditioning than crops that are predominantly grass. The CR roller conditioners give particularly gentle treatment, leaving the delicate leaves intact which are so rich in protein and safeguarding the value of the feed. Spreading the crop will speed up wilting.

Perfect treatment from profiled M-Rolls
Perfect treatment from profiled M-Rolls

The counter-rotating M-Rolls mesh to crush the material and yet leave a sufficiently wide gap for the material to pass through. The result is a uniform conditioning quality for uniform wilting and no fragmentation – the perfect system for lucerne, for example.

Two drives for double power
Two drives for double power

The top roll of the M-Rolls is driven by a separate gearbox on the right end of the cutterbar which synchronizes the speed of the top and bottom rolls, bracing you for wet and heavy crops.

250 mm diameter

EasyCut B 1000: Setting overlaps infinitely variably
EasyCut B 1000: Setting overlaps infinitely variably

EasyCut B 1000 operators set front-rear overlaps on the move and infinitely variably on the cab-based terminal. At the same time, they can vary the distance between the other rear mowers between 2.08 m and 2.80 m. When combining this model with a 3.16 m front mower, the overlap on both sides ranges from 18 cm to 59 cm. This allows opera-tors to adapt the combination flexibly to current conditions and maintain high work rates and a clean cut.

EasyCut B 870: Two overlap positions
EasyCut B 870: Two overlap positions

EasyCut B 870 offers two attachment positions for the mower arms which allow operators to set the distance between the two mowers to 1.99  m, which is helpful in sloping fields and curved passes. In combinations with a 3.16 m front mower, this setup leads to 59 cm overlaps and a total work width of 8.31 m. In flat fields and straight passes, however, you can extend the mower-to-mower distance to 2.30 m, which reduces the overlap to 43 cm and increases the total work width to 8.62 m thereby maximising productivity.

1. No swathing: Raise the belts and spread the material across the full width. Spreading the material speeds up wilting and helps achieves target DM rates faster.

Central swathing

Central windrowing: The Collect System groups three passes into one – cutting, conditioning and windrowing, thereby reducing the number of passes and the degree of compaction as well as the damage to the turf and contamination of the crop.

Pumping out masses of material

Pumping out masses of material: Cutting whole crop silage requires powerful machines with plenty of clearance. The Collect mower combinations have nearly 1 m wide merger belts that merge even the highest volumes of crop to the middle. Depending on the crop growth and the desired shape of the swath, operators can adjust belt speeds hydraulically from the tractor seat.
