Kuhn VKD 155
A Go-Anywhere Design
A hood without protrusions, screw heads or sharp angles to catch on wires or low lying branches: The reduced hood height allows the VK shredder to slide under even the lowest wires without damaging the vines.
Versatile, Profiled, High-Speed Hammer Knives
Dual-purpose, forged-steel hammer knives, each weighing 2.6 pounds, will shred vineyard and orchard prunings finely and cut grass impeccably.
VKD shredders are fitted with mechanically controlled offset (hydraulic as option) to allow work under trees and to adapt the working width to the tractor width. The center of gravity of the machine remains close to the tractor resulting in a balanced tractor/machine and preventing lifting problems.
Perfectly Controlled Height
Height is controlled via a roller or semi-pivoting wheels. The roller is fitted with removable ends as standard, so that you can carry out any necessary maintenance or repair quickly and easily at reduced costs.
The big wheels’ advantage: By adjustment, wheels permit that the machine doesn’t have to be lifted at the end of the row.
Side Trimming Disc (Optional)
Cut the grass close to the trees with a mowing disc. This mechanical device moves around the trees for clean maintenance without damaging tree trunks or vine stocks. With its hydraulic work/transport positioning system, this tool is very comfortable to use.
Collecting Rake (Optional)
Available as an option, the rear collecting rake lifts up residues to be shredded and vine shoots that are pressed down to the ground. The roller guides the machine accurately and keeps it stable on uneven or damp ground. For greater machine stability, optional skids are available.
