KRONE GX universal trailer – jack-of-all-trades for any type of agricultural cargo

GX stands for general-purpose wagon, the most recent addition to the Krone forage wagon range. This wagon offers a new level of versatility and gentle and fast unloading of a wide variety of cargo. The new machine is available in two sizes – 44 m³ and 52 m³ – with two optional discharge rollers. The GX 440 rides on tandem axles and the GX 520 on a tridem unit, with both models featuring standard Isobus operation.

Special Feature

ExactUnload

A world first – unique unloading control by length of the pit With ExactUnload, GX unloads its cargo automatically at rates that match the length of the pit. The operator sets the unloading rate infinitely variably for a course between 10 m and 100 m. ExactUnload controls the unloading rate actively to match the current forward speed of the tractor, helping you deliver the crop in accurate and reproduceable heaps. Laying out a nice blanket, the GX is particularly good at filling silage pits and controlled unloading routines in the field.
