The steered axles are standard specification. Tracking excellently in headland turns and curved lines, these wheels eliminate the risk of scuffing, protect the sward and take off stress from the running gear.

Best straight travel
Best straight travel

The cam discs on the stub axles are locked relative to the load that is currently placed on the axle. This results in maximum road stability and safe turning. The deflection forces are lowest when the machine is empty.

Maximum stability
Maximum stability

To compensate for undulating ground, the oil flows from the cylinder on the front wheel to the cylinder on the rear wheel on the same side of the machine and vice versa. Using a separate oil circuit on each side of the machine but within the same axle assembly cuts out any risk of rolling and maintains the body level at all times.

Very adaptable

Brakes and steering
Brakes and steering
  • The optional electronic EBS brake system features
    • ALB auto load sensitive brake power control
    • ABS anti-lock brake system
    • RSS roll stability support
  • Hydraulic or electronic forced steering as an option

Ever bigger and faster tractors, ever higher trailer capacities and payloads call for a thorough rethink on road and field safety. Therefore KRONE offers the electronic braking system as an option. Sourced from the industrial sector, the system has proven exceptionally well for many years. In addition, intelligent steered axles help protect the swath and provide added safety.

Electronic forced steering
Electronic forced steering

This system controls the axle using the tractor's standard hitch ball, a steering rod and a sensor that senses the wagon's current angle relative to the tractor and sends the information to the system via the steering computer. This system offers better manoeuvrability than the hydraulic system and is also more compact. It allows operators to interfere and change the position of the wheels during shunting, on the slope and unloading along the edge of the clamp. For added safety, the steering intensity is progressively reduced from 35 km/h onwards until it ceases altogether at 50 km/h.

Hydraulic forced steering
Hydraulic forced steering

A hydraulic system is available as an option for the TX 460 with tandem axle where it steers the rear axle. The system is a standard feature on the TX 560 with tridem axles where it steers the front and rear axles. The system is also actively involved in reversing so less pushing power is required when managing curves, which in turn reduces the strain and stress on the running gear and optimizes ride stability at speed. The steering rod connects the hitch ball on the tractor linkage with the master cylinder on the drawbar or two master cylinders on tridem axles.

Caster-steer axle
Caster-steer axle

Caster steering is standard specification on the TX 460 models with tandem axles. The steering system can be locked hydraulically during shunting, clamping and in road work.

Enhanced reliability
Enhanced reliability

EBS is the optional electronic brake system, which comprises ALB, ABS and RSS functions. The roll stability system intervenes by braking whenever there is a risk of rollover.TX will definitely not roll when managing narrow bends at speed. Combined, all these functions lead to an enhanced reliability.

The brake
The brake

The TX 460 and TX 560 have a dual line air brake as a standard feature. The hydraulic ALB valve controls the braking power relative to the current load. This brake is an option in specific countries.
