The new KUHN GA 4201 and 4401 single-rotor, mounted rotary rakes build on the popularity of the prior generation of KUHN’s single-rotor rotary rakes, with increased focus on smaller tractor sizes and operations in hilly regions. Special consideration was taken to ensure a limited machine weight and enhanced ergonomics. Operators will appreciate the updated pivoting headstock, the enhanced rotor gearbox, and the simplified windrow curtain adjustment.
The updated pivoting headstock allows a greater turning angle of 48 degrees to maneuver in tight field corners. Machine shifting and swinging is also reduced, protecting crop stubble. The headstock stabilizers also improve performance during turns and while working on slopes.
Double-curved tine arms are designed to form fluffy and consistent windrows for superior raking quality. The tine arm design allows for quicker dispensing of the forage and improves clearance while forming windrows. Fluffy windrows allow more air movement through the crop promoting fast and uniform drying.
The simplified windrow curtain adjustment sliding tube creates quick and easy adjustments to the windrow width. Easy adjustments to the rake height are completed using a crank accessible from the tractor cab. The rake height mechanism allows for adjustments, even when the whole weight of the rake is supported by the rotor wheels.
