The new Excelerator® 8005 builds on the superior vertical tillage performance growers have come to expect from Kuhn Krause products. Our field proven 32-flute Excalibur® blades, adjustable gang angles and exclusive Star Wheel™ treader attachment continue to lead the industry in agronomic performance and customer expectations. New features on the Excelerator 8005 enhance operator productivity and decrease machine maintenance. For smaller acreage, a new rigid 11-foot cut width joins the 14- to 50-foot product range.

One of the key new features for the Excelerator 8005 is increased productivity delivered by Peer® TillxtremeTM maintenance-free bearings. No daily grease maintenance is required for the Excalibur gangs, Star Wheel treader gangs, HD reel attachment, walking tandem pivot bearings, rockershaft lift and wing fold hinge pivots. No daily grease features allow the operator to convert hours devoted to daily maintenance into additional field time for added tilled acres per day.

An innovative, patent-pending and easily adjustable constant-flow hydraulic wing down-pressure system increases reliability, eliminates wing cylinder shear pins and decreases folding cycle time for transport.

Other new features include high flotation metric tires with increased weight carrying capacity for folding models, new heavy-duty 24/7® flat and round bar conditioning reels and a new articulating ball cast clevis hitch. The new hitch is available in Cat. III, Cat. IV or Cat. V configurations depending on size of machine, and reduces potential clevis and tractor drawbar pin wear.
