Kuhn has bolstered its mower conditioner range with the addition of two rear mounted/ vertical folding models with a 3.10m working width.

The FC 3115 D features the gearbox powered Digidry steel pivoting finger rotor, with a 540mm diameter. Drying is uniform over a wide width, a benefit in heavier or longer forage, while the user can also choose to produce a swath of varying width. A slow rotor speed is said to be ideal for conditioning delicate forages.

The FC 3115 R is equipped with a Squareflex roller conditioner, using large diameter, exclusively profiled rollers, featuring a standard double drive synchronized for life. This design ensures an effective conditioning of any forages, with a high output and minimal maintenance. 

Both models are fitted with the new Optidisc Elite cutter bar renowned for its robustness and quality of cut in all conditions, zero maintenance and the fast-fit quick-release knife system. 

The lift-control suspension offers a constant suspension for improved plant cover protection coupled with a release system, to protect against obstacles. For farms located in hilly areas or with medium-sized tractors, an adaptable counterweight on the left side of the chassis is available as optional equipment to reduce imbalance in the tractor hitch.  The mowing unit folds to 126° to achieve maximum compactness for transport and optimal weight balance on the tractor’s rear wheels.
