KUHN was recently awarded an AE50 award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
The AE50 award was presented to KUHN for its MM 1100 Merge Maxx® hay merger, deeming it one of the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products for the food and agriculture industries. The MM 1100 will be featured in the January/February 2018 special issue of ASABE’s magazine, Resource: Engineering & Technology for a Sustainable World.
With 36’ of pickup in a single pass, the KUHN MM 1100 hay merger is unique in the industry and unmatched in its simplicity of operation, durability and merging capabilities. Unique features like the merger’s hydraulic drive system, large-capacity oil reservoir, floating windguard, crop netting and ISOBUS compatibility provide maximum efficiency for the operator in and out of the cab.
“The AE 50 award is a great achievement and reminder to continue to design, engineer, and produce high-quality products,” said Brandon Pfeuti, Kuhn North America Product Specialist, “Customers and operators can become more efficient and productive in their operations, as well as profit from a quick return on their investment with KUHN equipment.”
Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50 competition and up to 50 of the best products are chosen by a panel of international engineering experts. The judges select innovative products that will best advance engineering for the food and agriculture industries.
