Choppers

John Deere's 3955 and 3975 Powr-Mizer pull-type forage harvesters feature an improved electrical system and the exclusive Dura-Drum cutterhead. Its segmented-knife design allows material to move away from the cutterhead more efficiently and produces a high-quality cut while using less horsepower.

The IntelliGuard metal detection system is optional for both models, and a kernel processor is available for the 3975.

Rake

Hesston's Model 3740 rotary rake is built on a heavy-duty frame and has cam-operated tine action that works well on all types of hay. Its 12 individual toothbars can be quickly attached or detached from the rotor arms.

Tandem walking beam axles reduce bouncing and rake height is adjustable. An adjustable, internal rotor cam controls the release point of the rake teeth and the windrow width, making it suitable for dry hay, green forage or silage.

Rotary Tedders

Krone's KW and KWT rotary tedders come in 22' to 34'5" widths. Each has a wide-angle pto shaft that allows an 80 turning angle, while a double pivot point and double U-joints provide wear resistance.

Hex screws allow the operator to adjust the surface-blasted and hardened tines in three positions. Outer tines are longer than inner tines, making tine ends parallel to improve pickup and spreading.
