Kuhn North America, Inc., is pleased to introduce the GA 8830 semi-mounted twin-rotor rotary rake. This new addition helps round out the top end of KUHN’s twin-rotor rotary rake line-up with a working width ranging between 25’6” (7.8 m) – 28’7” (8.8 m).
Intended for large operations and custom operators, the GA 8830 rake is simple, easy to use and extremely versatile. The GA 8830 is setup to adapt to an operator’s needs and conditions. The hydraulic rotor adjustment on the GA 8830 allows users to make one or two-windrows depending on crop conditions.
The GA 8830 rake offers proven reliability with the Masterdrive® GIII double-reduction gearbox allowing it to easily power through heavy crops, tough field conditions and intensive use. Key components have been improved to build lighter, yet stronger rotors such as: aluminum alloy housings, optimized cam track minimizing force on the follower bearing, larger follower bearing diameter reducing rotation speed and pressure on the cam, tine arms with large-dimension bearings, sturdier pivoting tine support shaft, reinforced main shaft, and reinforced mounting of tine arms on tine holders.
The 3D suspension of the rotors provides exceptional adaptation of the machine to the terrain. This allows for an impressive range of up and down movement of the suspension from +10” to -12”.
The GA 8830 also comes equipped with KUHN’s exclusive, StabiDrive® system. The pivot point between the tractor’s lower links and the rake is not vertical, but rather inclined slightly forward increasing the pressure on the inner link and inner wheel of the rake’s undercarriage. This results in the center of gravity being more in the center of the rake when turning which increases stability, especially in hilly conditions.
