New vertical-folding disc mowers GMD 285 / GMD 315 / GMD 355
22 October 2019
KUHN, world leader in the field of disc mowers, introduces three new vertical folding models with a working width of 2.80-3.10 and 3.50 m. Their ability to work at high speed, their low power consumption and compactness make them highly efficient and very economical mowers particularly suitable for irregular plots.
These new mowers are indeed equipped with a special and powerful suspension kinematic, CONSTANT FLOAT. The latter, extremely easy to adjust without tools, allows preserving the plant cover even in humid conditions and provides good stability in poorly levelled plots or during high-speed mowing operations. The contours of the terrain are perfectly followed. The quality of the forage and its nutritional value are ensured.
In addition, the side articulation allows very important travel angles both upward and downward, allowing to work in special conditions. The travel range in the "headland turn" position is significant (50cm) and facilitates manoeuvring in all circumstances.
These new mowers of course feature the KUHN specificities, which have made the strength of the brand for decades: a disc holder composed of large diameter gearwheels, external bearings with double fixation, the PROTECTADRIVE safety for coping with very violent shocks.
Fast-FIT knives, the absence of any greaser and maximum access to the mowing unit thanks to the triple opening of the curtain greatly facilitate maintenance or cleaning operations, reduce the time required to achieve them and make substantial savings.
The direct drive of the cutter bar that characterizes these machines, with a drive from the top of the first disc, is an asset for mowing on steep slopes and allows reducing the transport dimensions. Transport is carried out in a vertical position with the machine slightly repositioned behind the tractor, for a perfect balance. For even more comfort, the end guard folds down automatically, reducing the height on the road.
