Features

The Swadro 2000 boasts six rotors that rake 10.00 m-19.00 m of work. This is the ideal machine for large-scale farmers and contractors. Quickest changeovers, fast road travel, long lifetime cycles, ultimate user comfort and efficient swathing at up to 20ha/h are naturally included in the package. The large work width of the machine reduces the total swath lengt

Heavy-duty and maintenance-free

  • Maintenance-free rotors and rotor gearboxes
  • Hard-wearing DuraMax cam tracks with a three-year warranty
  • Rotors featuring the KRONE Jet Effect to avoid crop contamination on headlands

 

Great flexibility and cleanest rakes

  • Optimum contouring in any direction through pivoting rotors
  • Cleanest forage from the KRONE Jet Effect during take-off and touch-down
  • Central suspension for a uniform ground pressure across the full widths of the rotors

 

The Jet Effect

The KRONE Jet Effect prevents the tines from damaging the sward on the headland and ensures the crop stays clean. As the bogies are lowered into work, the rear wheels touch down first before the leading wheels follow. Vice versa, as the rotors lift out it is the leading wheels that lift out first and the rear wheels that follow. This is identical with the take-off and touch-down phases observed with airplanes.

Great stability and excellent tracking

  • Cleanest rakes as the bogie wheels run in vicinity of the tines
  • Straightforward angle adjustment
  • Castering wheels are standard at the front and an option at the rear to protect the sward

 

Stable running and tidy windrowing

  • Large-diameter and thick-walled tine arms ensure absolutely dependable operation
  • Easy and fast tine arm attachment and removal
  • Sturdy foldback mechanism

 

Clean windrows, better feed

  • Greater ground clearance
  • Higher work rates
  • No crop contamination
  • Higher-quality forage
  • Minimum crop loss

 

The variable work width

The rake can vary its work width between 10.00 m and 19.00 m hydraulically, producing swaths that match the capacities of the following harvesters. To do that the two rotor arms extend and retract on a sliding carriage.

The flexible swathing width

An optimal swath width boosts the efficiency of the entire harvest chain. You can alter the width by telescoping the rear arms hydraulically, which alters the distance between the two rear rotors. The telescoping arms adjust to widths between 1.80 m (5'11") and 3 m (9'10").

The rotors lift out of work

The rotors lift and lower either independently, one after the other, or simultaneously. A hydraulic sequence control system is a particular boon for operators. The system can be upgraded by the optional GPS based SectionControl feature which raises one rotor independently of the others.

Different rotor speeds

The tines on the four leading rotors operate at a higher circumference speed than the tines on the rear rotors. Operating the rotors at different speeds eliminates the risk of roping.

Easy operation

  • The rotors are folded hydraulically and sequence controlled
  • User-friendly operator terminals

 

All changeovers on Swadro 2000 are made from the tractor seat where the operator simply triggers a sequence A hydraulic sequence control manages the individual steps, taking off stress and strain from the operator. SectionControl is operated conveniently from a cab-based DS 500 or CCI terminal.
