Making the most of your grass harvest

by T H WHITE on April 28, 2021

The way your forage crop is handled once it has been cut can make a significant difference to quality and value. 

KUHN Merge Maxx 950

The Kuhn Merge Maxx 950 is a 9.5m wide belt-merging silage rake which has been specially developed for contractors and larger-scale farm producers seeking to achieve maximum productivity in high quality harvesting of grass and other forage crops.

At the heart of the machine are  two adjustable, variable width and bi-directional merger belts to swath a maximum of 9.5m, guaranteeing high output with very high quality forage harvesting

Nothing is more effective than having homogenous, regular windrows. The unique design of the pick-up and windguard-with-roller produce regular forage pick-up and transfer to the conveyor belt – prerequisites for perfect windrow formation. A regular, homogenous windrow prevents jolting during harvesting and can increase working speeds by up to

2 or 3 km/h.

As an increasing number of UK farmers recognise the benefits of protein-rich alfalfa (Lucerne) as a forage crop which can be harvested three times a year, the Merge Maxx 950 is the ideal machine. Its gentle pick-up means that leaves remain on their stems, thus preserving protein content and nutritional value in the forage. The same applies for harvesting cover crops at the end of autumn: forage is lifted, uncontaminated by wet, sticky soil.  With the Merge Maxx 950, you no longer have to choose between a central or side-delivery rake. This rake is capable of adapting to all types of usage, forage volumes and harvesting methods thanks to its many delivery options:
• Central delivery with variable width
• Side delivery with a view to grouping different working widths together

• Central and side delivery simultaneously for very high forage volumes and to suit harvesting methods

The Merge Max 950 provides a practical solution for contractors who offer a variety of services to different customers as the configuration of the machine can be modified easily with the hydraulic control valves. The days of belt-fitting are over and work output is improved.

KUHN SW4014 Bale Wrapper

The KUHN SW 4014 is a hybrid bale wrapper that can wrap large square bales, 80 x 50 – 130cm, up to 200cm in length, and round bales up to 15cm in diameter.The versatile wrapper provides fast, cost efficient and operator-friendly wrapping.

A hydraulic sliding frame provides the ability to widen the wrapper for easy bale loading, while the Autoswitch function enables the wrapper to fold from transport position into field position with a single touch of a button on the ISOBUS terminal.

The innovative AUTOLOAD function provides non-stop, fully automatic loading, wrapping and unloading of square and round bales without any intervention from the driver. AUTOLOAD detects approaching bales, automatically scans the length of the bale and sets the loading arms into the pre-load position, resulting in accurate loading, wrapping and unloading of the bale on the go. This leads to increased overall capacity and creates a more ergonomic and stress-free working environment during a long working day.

The result is a superb quality of consistent wrapping combined with film savings compared to many other wrapping systems.
