GF series 1012: plot points deserve attention too!
13 September 2017
The new range of KUHN Gyrotedders series 1012 is expanding with the arrival of 4 mounted and trailed models: GF 8712 / 8712T and GF 10812 / 10812T (8 and 10 rotors respectively for working widths of 8.70 m and 10.80 m).
The GF 10812 with its 10 rotors is the widest mounted machine in the KUHN offer for this segment.
New models in the 1012 series meet the requirements of medium and large-sized farms.
Tight plots and points are no longer a problem thanks to the HLC rotor-lift system. Simply activate the valve and the lift system to see all of the rotors lift 50 cm from the ground in less than 5 seconds:
Reduced risk of introducing impurities into the forage (only turned once).
The GF 8712 and 10812’s folding kinematics, transport wheels positioned in front of the rotors on the trailed models and the patented connecting system between the headstock and the frame on mounted models, make these machines highly compact, very stable, well dampened and very safe for transport. Accessing plots and clearing windrows becomes easy and road travel safe.
All of these features means that the new large-width gyrotedders can be coupled and used to their full capacity, even the mounted models, with medium-powered tractors (90/100 hp), often present on livestock farms.
They come with all indispensable features for user comfort (in-cab adjustment of border tedding as an option), reduced maintenance costs (DIGIDRIVE drive system, maintenance-free rotors) and forage production with high nutritional value and free of impurities (individual rotor pivot, asymmetrical tines for parallel ground contact, wheels close to tines, small diameter rotors).
