For over 40 years, Krone has been building the highest-quality equipment—and gaining the trust—of North American farmers. It began with the Krone disc mowers, which farmers quickly realized could be trusted to deliver a level of quality cutting they had not experienced before.

Now Krone introduces the ActiveMow R and EasyCut R 3-point hitch mowers, offering cutting edge design, unmatched durability, and more efficient cutting from an elite new generation of disc mowers.

“These new disc mowers combine the durability and reliability of our trusted line of current disc mowers, while adding new enhancements that our customers have asked for,” said Jody McRee, Krone Sales Operation Manager. “Building on the reputation of our trusted AM and EasyCut mowers as being ‘bullet proof machines,’ these new models are just as reliable, while raising the bar for improved productive cutting in the field.”

We talked with Alan and Warren Flake, who run a family cattle and haying operation outside Philadelphia, Mississippi. The Flake brothers had a chance to run a new Krone ActiveMow R disc mower last fall.

About Krone Quick-Change blades, which simplifies changing blades: “We really like the simplicity. It’s a lot easier to change the blades. And there are no tools required other than the lever that came with the mower,” says Alan.

About Krone’s exclusive No-Inner-Shoe design: “The Krone mower doesn’t have as much drag on the tractor, improving fuel efficiency and it cuts better, laying the hay out better so it can dry quicker,” says Alan.

About the exclusive Krone direct drive system, which delivers reliable power to the SmartCut cutterbar, using NO belts: Alan says, “Krone mowers are easy to maintain, and last a very long time. It has very good wear components, so we know we’ll get a lot of service out of this mower.”

Why should growers buy a Krone disc mower? Says Warren: “This new Krone disc mower is heavier built, it’s quicker and the blades last longer. It floats better, less drag on your tractor, and turns quicker. It really doesn’t give you any reason to go anywhere else.”
