The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) presented Krone’s EasyCut TC Pull-Type Disc Mower with the AE50 Outstanding Innovation Award. The EasyCut TC makes transportation easier and provides access to fields with narrow gateways.
ASABE is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to the advancement of engineering applicable to agricultural, food, and biological systems. Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50 competition and up to 50 of the best products are chosen by a panel of international engineering experts. The judges select products that will best advance engineering for the food and agriculture industries.
“The new EasyCut TC mower conditioners have been designed to improve mowing capabilities from the drawbar to the conditioning housing,” said Cliff Addison, Krone Product Development Manager. “During testing, they have proven to provide the features needed for fast, clean cutting in all conditions.”
The EasyCut TC Pull-Type Disc Mower has been designed with optional endwise transport that converts the machine from field to 9’ wide transport mode in only 30 seconds without leaving the cab. The SmartCut cutterbar delivers increased blade overlap to reduce streaking in lighter crop conditions. The SafeCut Hubs protect the cutterbar when a disc comes into contact with a foreign object by shearing a roll pin within the sprocket, and the disc spins up and out of the way of neighboring discs. Multiple conditioning options are available including steel chevron rollers, polyurethane intermeshing rollers, new style v-tines or no conditioner.
“High capacity, utter reliability, and ease of use make the new EasyCut TC mowers a pleasure to operate,” Addison said.
