While the FC 13460 RA mower-conditioner can reach a working width of 13.40 m, it is above all a concentrate of technologies at the service of the performance of harvesting operations. It is an enduring machine, designed to increase the productivity of harvesting systems while reducing the cost of mowing. Its robustness and low maintenance minimize maintenance costs. Its belt grouper forms a swath in a single pass with the forage collected over more than 13.00 m of cut. This allows you to exploit the full potential of the forage harvester! Like the entire KUHN range, this mower offers unparalleled quality of work. It incorporates brand exclusives such as the OPTIDISC ELITE cutter bar and conditioners driven by a lever gearbox, but it is also innovative! The particular kinematics of the suspension protects your soil from compaction. The load distribution, the limited weight and the large tires, inflated at low pressure prevent damaging the soil structure, even in wet conditions. Finally, the compactness, manoeuvrability and level of equipment provide the necessary comfort for long working days.

Your Benefits

Outstanding performance

Exceptional work output!

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.

Reduce your operating costs without further delay

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.

Reduce maintenance costs with a reliable tool

The FC 13460 RA mower meets a high level of requirements in terms of endurance and reduced maintenance costs:

  • The components ensure exceptional durability. Thus the design of the mowing unit drive housings has been adapted to the power of the tractors and the high intensity of use,
  • Daily maintenance operations are limited to the essentials, with a reduced number of grease nipples and maintenance-free cutter bars. The machine is equipped with “Triple 5” knives and disc skid lining, the service life of which greatly exceeds that of the knives normally used on mowers. A gain in quality of work while reducing running costs

Ever easier work

A terminal at the cutting edge of technology

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!

Manoeuvrable and easy to drive

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.

Constant mowing quality

OPTIDISC ELITE cutter bar

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 finger conditioner adapted to your needs

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 benefits of the telescopic axle

The telescopic axle deploys at work to obtain a tire spacing of 3.00 m.
The clearance is increased and facilitates the formation of a wider swath of regular shape for even drying and improved pick-up by a forage harvester. In addition, the wide track increases stability during U-turns and prevents the wheels from rolling in the tractor’s wheel tracks.

LIFT-CONTROL: ensuring perfect ground following

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 ground pressure is limited

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.
