The new KRONE OptiTurn rotor with 3D tines is the key for clean and efficiently conditioned forage. Featuring a curved and patented design and working close to the rotor gauge wheel, these tines pick up the material cleanly and uniformly across the full work width. The intensity of conditioning is changed according to conditions and crops without the use of tools and by just setting the spreading angle to one of four positions. This makes the KRONE Vendro an effective dual-purpose machine.
Producing a uniform and fluffy matt, this KRONE rotary tedder cuts down the number of hours the crop spends drying, giving you enough time to clear the field before the rain.
Changeovers to border spreading are made by adjusting the gauge wheels under the rotors. This is done hydraulically from the convenience of the cab. The border spreading feature can also be used for uphill tedding. Stable tracking without drifting is achieved by hydraulic damper braces in combination with gauge wheels being fixed by the border spreading linkage. This is the secret behind uniform and accurate spreads, even on the steepest of slopes.
The KRONE Highland mowers are complemented by the new KKRONE Highland tedders that are marketed under the model name Vendro. The new range comprises the Vendro 420 Highland 4-rotor tedder, the Vendro 620 Highland 6-rotor and the Vendro 820 Highland 8-rotor tedder – the first 8-rotor tedder ever to be developed for mountainous applications. These Krone Highland tedders stand out for their compact, light-pulling design and close tractor attachment (two coupling options) that makes them the ideal match for mountain tractors. The compact design is particularly suited for mountain and compact tractors.
