Kuhn extends working widths of power harrow and tiller range

Two new foldable power harrows have been added to Kuhn’s HR range of machines, which now features working widths from 1.2m to 8m for tractors from 80 to 500hp.

The HR 6040 R (6m working width) and HR 8040 R (8m working width) are primarily aimed at contractors and large arable farms and are capable of working up to 100ha/day.

Both machines are fitted with an intelligent monitoring system as standard, which relays torque and oil temperature data back to the tractor cab.

The HR 8040 R is primarily designed for large arable farms

Each of the new machines uses 3.5 rotors/m and rotor speed can be adjusted up to 500rpm.

Working depth and levelling-bar indexing can also be adjusted from the tractor cab.

As a result of Kuhn’s intelligent monitoring system torque and oil temperature can be checked from the cab

Retail prices for the HR 6040 R and HR 8040 R start at £40,772 and £51,370 respectively.

EL 402 R

Kuhn's EL 402 R working the land

The EL 402 R has Kuhn’s intelligent monitoring system installed

Kuhn’s EL 402 R folding power tiller has a working width of 6m and is suited for use with tractors up to 400hp.

This new machine uses a 550mm diameter rotor and 144 carbide coated blades to produce a fine tilth.

In order to ensure adjacent passes are level, the EL 402 R has rollers wider than the maximum tilling width, which the company says creates a finish with no ridges between passes.

The EL 402 on the road

The EL 402 R has a folded width of just 3m, which means it should be comparatively easy to move on the road

The EL 402 R is also equipped with Kuhn’s intelligent monitoring system.

A folded width of 3m, plus the option of a transport wheel, should make the EL 402 R relatively easy to move on the road too. 

The EL 402 R-600R retails at £48,950.
