Kuhn widens its Performer cultivator offering

With the addition of two new, wider models, Kuhn has expanded its deep tine-disc cultivator offering.

Previously only available in four and five metre working widths, Kuhn’s range of Performer deep tine-disc cultivators has gained two new, wider models.

 

Suitable to use with 360-700hp tractors, the new hydraulic folding six and seven metre wide models share features with the manufacturer’s narrower models. Upfront, two rows of 510mm diameter serrated discs, which can work to a depth of 100mm, and four rows of auto-reset tines, which can work down to 350mm, are used. A row of levelling discs with height adjustable border discs, and Kuhn’s 700mm diameter HD-Liner roller bring up the rear.

New model specifications

  • Working width: 6m and 7m
  • Power rating: 350-700hp
  • Discs: two rows, 100mm working depth
  • Tines: four rows, 350mm working depth
  • Consolidation: 700mm rear roller
  • Retail price: 6m - £84,356, 7m - £88,754

The two rows of discs, which offer a 560mm under beam clearance, can be raised out of work altogether. Similarly, the tines, which have a 280mm inter-tine spacing and 850mm under beam clearance, can be raised out of work, as can the rear roller.

 

To reduce maintenance requirements, Kuhn says all discs are mounted on maintenance-free hubs and tines are drop-forged for added strength.

 

Aiming to offer additional flexibility, the firm says its SH600 seeding unit can be fitted, which allows cover crops or oil seed rape to be sown with the cultivator.

 

Retail price for the six and seven metre machines is £84,356 and £88,754 respectively.
