Features

EasyCut R

EasyCut R 280, R 320, R 360: Pulling light, compact and floating over undulations, the rear EasyCut R series mowers work at widths of 2.73 m (9'), 3.16 m (10'4.5") and 3.60 m (11'10"), producing cleanest cuts in any type of terrain.

EasyCut R 280 CV, R 280 CR, R 320 CV, R 320 CR: If you seek faster wilting, opt for tine or roller conditioners on the rear-mounted disc mowers which condition the crop across the full mower width.

The cutterbar

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.

SafeCut

Individual protection for each disc

  • Full driveline protection
  • Neighbouring discs will not collide
  • No wear and damage
  • Quick roll pin change, minimum costs

 

SafeCut – uniquely KRONE: The situation is familiar to every farmer – a disc hits a foreign object, gets damaged and needs replacing. In this situation, KRONE SafeCut offers a maximum of protection. The DLG Gold winning new disc shear-off system brings a new level of protection and operational reliability to the EasyCut mowers with and without CV conditioner. SafeCut is standard equipment on all EasyCut F and R disc mowers.

SmartCut

Forget about stripes With some discs turning in pairs towards each other and others away from each other, it was necessary to redesign the degree of blade overlap to ensure cleanest cuts. Therefore we increased the overlap between those discs that turn outwards – a modification that leads to stripeless cuts in light and young material. Vice versa, a larger gap between the blades that turn towards each other encourages the smooth flow of large masses to the rear.

High work rates and clean cuts

Adjusting the ground pressure is easy: Adjusting the spring tension manually is easy and straightforward, because you simply refi t the pin. Increase the tension to decrease the ground pressure.

Hydraulic control from the seat: Enjoy superior operator comfort from the hydraulic suspension control system. Adjust the pressure flexibly on the move and release the spring tension from the seat before you remove the mower from the tractor

Safe road travel

Safe road travel: The special design shifts the machine weight to the middle of the tractor, distributing it more uniformly across the axle and the linkage for better ride quality and better visibility in the rear-view mirrors. There is nothing in the way that might obstruct your view.

Fold it from the seat: The machine swings hydraulically into an upright position and beyond the dead centre point. The single-acting ram on the EasyCut R 280 and R 320 models employs an accumulator to move the machine into a 110° position whereas the EasyCut R 320 CV and R 360 models use a double-acting ram to swing the machine into a 124° position. Both versions fold the mower actively up and down for smooth and easy changeovers.
