Lamma 2024: New pick-up and chopper for Strautmann Zelon wagons

Small livestock farms keen on keeping silage-making in house have a revamped range of Strautmann Zelon forage wagons to pick from.

These have a slightly wider pick-up than before – now 1.8m – to help reliably hoover up bigger or untidy swaths, particularly around sweeping bends.

The camless setup features steel tines and plastic stripper bands as standard, with the option of upgrading to more durable Flex-Load tines and/or adding a 500mm-wide depth roller behind to improve contour following.

Also new to the firm’s junior wagon range is the Exact-Cut chopping system, which is armed with 37 reversible blades to reduce the theoretical chop length from 45mm to 39mm.

The main change in the 24 to 35cu m capacity bodies is a switch to powder-coated steel decks with profiled slats to carry the four 13t discharge chains and their associated slats.

The mid-range 290 on show has a list price of £90,000 and is suitable for tractors upwards of 95hp.
