Krone EasyCut F 280 M
A dependable design
- Fully welded cutterbar – strong in build, leak proof and permanently lubricated
- Long-lasting satellite gears with massive spur gears make for quiet running and maximum efficiency
- No inner shoe – no blockages
EasyCut – the better cut The wedge-shaped cutterbar adjusts through a large setting range to cut short stubble in meadows and pastures and longer stubble in longstemmed field crops. EasyCut cuts blockage-free and clean. Benefitting from massive double spur gear bearings that are spaced at large gaps, the cutterbars are heavy-duty and hardwearing.
The original: The KRONE developed satellite driveline comprises massive spur gears with up to 66 teeth which transfer the power all the way down to the very last disc. Revolving at lower speeds, the large-diameter gears always have a number of teeth in mesh at any one time, giving quiet running, ultimate efficiency and maximum longevity. With each of the auxiliary gears driving just one disc, it is exposed to only minimum mechanical strain.
Individual protection for each disc
- Full driveline protection
- Neighbouring discs will not collide
- No wear and damage
- Quick roll pin change, minimum costs
Peace of mind: Instead of transferring the full shockload to the spur gears, the roll pin in the sprocket driveshaft breaks when there is a momentary overload. The pinion shaft continues spinning, jacking up the disc in question and the disc moves out of the risk zone and the orbit of the neighbouring discs. This way SafeCut prevents damage to the spur gears and the neighbouring discs. Replacing the roll pin takes a few minutes and is not very costly.
- Ideally suited for compact tractors and work in mountain regions
- Low dead weight, little weight on the front axle
- Compact build, excellent handling
- Pivoting centre-of-gravity suspension system
Sleek engineering unveiled: Removing the curtain exposes the heavy-duty and uncluttered design of the EasyCut F M front mower. Light in weight (starting from 500 kg (1,102 lbs)), these machines perform effectively in any terrain. Doing without hydraulic control, they offer absolutely easy and quick attachment and removal. The cutterbar suspends from struts that are arranged just behind the hats – an ideal design for a uniform crop flow. Like all other models, these mower beds are wedge-shaped, fully welded and feature our SafeCut system as well as quick-changing blades.
Proven in the field: Very hilly terrain poses a special challenge to every mower. The front-mounted KRONE EasyCut F 280 M and F 320 M disc mowers take on that challenge. Working at widths of 2.73 m (9') and 3.16 m (10'4.5"), these models present the optimum solution to deal with steep slopes. Among the advantages of this light-weight and very compact mountain mower are its compact design, the centre of gravity arranged close to the tractor, a perfect cut on steep slopes as well as excellent tractor attachment options. The EasyCut 360 M with its enormous work width is an excellent match for tractors with huge trackwidths and offers a generous overlap when used in combination with rear mowers.
Perfect ground hugging: The pushing suspension design provides a generous vertical travel and combines with long skids and an optional telescoping top link to provide optimum ground hugging in every way. Mounted extremely close to the tractor, the mower travels very little when gliding over undulations. The design reduces wear on the driveshaft and enhances operator overview.
