With a cutting width of 13.40 m, the FC 13460 RA mower exceeds the mowing width of most mounted triple combinations by 25 to 30%. Its exceptional output ensures rapid mowing of larger areas.
The wide conveyors with adjustable speed allow the forage to be grouped on a swath of approx. 1.80 m to 3.00 m. They can be raised to perform wide delivery.
With the FC 13460 RA mower conditioner, you can mow a larger area with one machine. This means you can save a lot of money on pull power, fuel or labour costs. In a single pass, the FC 13460 RA mower forms a swath with the forage harvested over more than 13 m, saving the cost of using a rake and forming a swath sufficient to exploit the full potential of the forage harvester.
In the event of low forage density and in the presence of a 15 m rake with 4 rotors, round-trip mowing with a single raised conveyor allows the forage cut over 24 m to be delivered on the ground over approx. 15 m.
The FC 13460 RA mower meets a high level of requirements in terms of endurance and reduced maintenance costs:
All machine controls are grouped together on the ISOBUS terminal (ISOBUS CCI 1200 or CCI 800 terminals available as an option). All machine functions, as well as the front mower, are easily controllable. At a glance, all settings and indicators can be viewed. The ISOBUS CCI A3 joystick also makes it easier to use, displaying icons related to machine functions which is very convenient when changing drivers!
The FC 13460 RA mower remains a very compact machine, easy to drive on the road and when accessing fields. The 2-point hitch and its set-back pivot point offer exceptional manoeuvrability for quick turns on headlands or on the road.
The mowing quality is the first requirement of farmers. To meet this challenge, the FC 13460 RA mower is equipped with renowned components from the KUHN range such as the OPTIDISC ELITE cutter bar.
The variable spacing between the discs ensures an impeccable cut, even at high speeds and in terrain conditions. The divergent discs are closer (A) to promote a clean cut thanks to the knife overlap. The spacing of the converging discs is increased to improve forage evacuation (B). Four individual cutter bars with 6 discs each form the heart of the mower unit.
The new generation retractable steel finger conditioner is the guarantee of high-quality conditioning. The fingers are driven by a gearbox with selector lever to easily adapt the conditioning to the types of forage and the harvesting conditions.
The LIFT-CONTROL suspension is continuously regulated at work. This allows the FC 13460 RA mower to ensure an excellent ground following quality, whatever the conditions. The ground pressure can be adjusted at any time from the ISOBUS control interface.
The FC 13460 RA mower fits perfectly into a Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) strategy of a 12.00 m track. Tasks are thus streamlined and the compacted surface is drastically reduced, to the benefit of increased forage production.
In addition, the weight of the machine is distributed between its own axle and the tractor hitch. Large, low-pressure tyres keep soils from compaction, even in wet conditions.
