These belt mergers are ideal for contractors and machinery cooperatives but also for individual farms. The 2 independent pick-ups offer side or central delivery with several combination possibilities. Rake up to 30 m forage and gain up to 3 kph.

Your harvesting material can work at faster speeds when windrows are regular. At constant speeds, drivers have less operating stress:
They can concentrate on what is important rather than having to worry about groundspeed.
With the MERGE MAXX 950 belt merger, you also reduce the peaks in operating stress put on harvesting machines. MERGE MAXX 950 users attest to increasing working speeds by 2 to 3 km/h! You too can improve all-round productivity.
Less soil and stones in the windrow reduces wear to the intake system and operating costs.
Pick-up quality and regularity are directly related to the design of the pick-up and WINDGUARD with roller. In combination with the WINDGUARD reel, volute and lower roller, 5 tine arms, guided by cam, optimise forage uptake, lift and smooth transfer to the belt. This is essential for the machine to create regular windrows.
Rotation speed of the pick-up is variable to adapt to different harvesting situations. When necessary, rotational speed can be reduced to preserve the leaves of very delicate forage and the final product. The wide belt transfers the product to the side. It is very easy to service. It takes just a few moments and requires no tools to adjust the tension of the strip. According to needs, the belt speed can be reduced to adapt the windrow size and shape to the harvesting equipment.
Forage is taken in by the pick-up and guided by the WINDGUARD system which is composed of a guidance volute and a roller that optimise forage flow onto the conveyor belt.
It automatically adjusts to the amount of forage. You obtain uniform, fluffy windrows with no twists for higher output.
A windrow curtain can be ordered for side delivery to improve windrow calibration, especially when using a baler for pick-up.
The driver can change windrow width at any time or fold the curtain back completely.
The MERGE MAXX 950 belt merger has eight different delivery options.
It is capable of:
The main functions of the MERGE MAXX 950 and 1090 belt mergers are controlled with a simple, user-friendly terminal (Windrow delivery, rotational direction of the belts, setting to work and transport position, hour meter).
On the MERGE MAXX 760, the control box KMM01 gives the driver the possibility to easily monitor windrow delivery as well as individual or separate belt lifting.
The windrow curtain is controlled directly by a tractor valve.
The 2 units are distant and the belts take the forage to the centre of the machine. A central windrow is created with 8 to 10 m of forage. An ideal situation:
Windrow width can be adapted to the size of the pick-up depending on the distance set between the pick-up units.
If the belts are brought closer together and turned in the same direction, one single windrow is created, either to the left or to the right of the machine (3).
If need be, forage can be deposited onto a pre-raked area.
Different raking widths can be put together to produce widths of up to 20 to 30 m in low forage volume situations (4).
Get the best of both worlds; side and central delivery (5):
A single swath may be too much for a harvester in terms of working at a constant speed. That’s why different configurations are possible:
In order to reduce ground pressure and preserve grass stubbles, the pick-up units of the MERGE MAXX 950 belt merger come with a special suspension system with 4 powerful and adjustable springs. Each pickup unit has a working angle of +/-10° and vertical travel range of -20/+30 cm in order to adapt to uneven terrain.
Two large skids, articulated and height adjustable, contour the ground and guide each pick-up unit perfectly. Centralised skid
height adjustment by crank handle on MERGE MAXX 950 and 1090 and by pins on multiple-hole plate for the MERGE MAXX 760, provide extra comfort and safety.
The linkage system includes dampers to prevent transferring jolts to the tractor. This is a KUHN exclusive which brings additional comfort when driving on poorly kept roads.
