Designed to cope with heavier crops, faster working speeds and more power being put through it, Vicon has been busy updating its Fanex 764 tedder.
Representing its most popular model in its range, the six rotor, 7.6m working width machine now features a new central frame which has been beefed up, along with a ‘cleaner’ design to prevent build up of crop.
Power is now transferred to the outer rotors via the firm’s Hexidrive ‘finger’ drive system rather than universal joints. This affords tighter and more compact folding resulting in reduced transport and parking heights.
Maintenance free bearings are used on all folding joints and all guard rails are of aluminium construction.
Tine arm fixings have been beefed up and a mechanically adjustable boarder spreading kit is fitted as standard. This puts the machine into a ‘crab’ steering mode to keep crop out of the hedge bottom – an optional hydraulic version is also available.
Available now, the machine retails at £9,533.
