T H WHITE Agriculture has sold the first Kuhn Merge Maxx 902 in the country to Mike Sainsbury.
Mike and his family farm 1,100 acres on the Cotswolds where they milk 240 organic cows. “We bought the Merge Maxx,” said Mike, “because we were getting a lot of stone in the silage from the open sward of lucerne and red clover which led to a reduction in milk yield”.
This belt-merging silage rake has been designed to deliver the absolute maximum in terms of working speed and forage density. The new model incorporates new pick-up suspension for better balance, improved ground hugging at high speeds, a new higher capacity conveyor and the possibility of adding a windrow curtain for precise windrow calibration, especially when working with narrow pick-ups.
There is also a choice of forage transfer and pick-up systems, with a new windguard incorporating a casing and low roller for improved operations in low-density forage, light but abundant forage, or when picking up whole crop and straw. This technology offers a great many advantages: gentle working with fragile crops, high output capacity, cleaner forage, stone-free windrows, and less wear on pick-ups, chopper cutting components and loaders.
