Kverneland 864

Trailed bale chopper/feeder with 4.2m3 loading capacity.

Appetite for More – 25% Increase in Capacity

The Kverneland 864 has grown its dimensions in all aspects with a massive 4.2m³ chamber size. It handles 2.1m diameter round bales and its longer body design provides even better support and stability for large square bales.

With a completely redesigned drum and flywheel configuration, it offers significantly higher through put and impressive blowing distances of up to 25m.

The Advantages:

  • 4.2m³ chamber.
  • Blowing distance up to 25m.
  • Choice of 3-stage swivelling chute or side chute.
  • Drum Feed Control System - Blockage-free design.
  • Optimised drum, flywheel and chamber design for maximum capacity and throughput.
  • Integrated stone trap.
  • Unique drum-knife configuration to handle a wide variety of materials.
  • Two speed gearbox for reduced flywheel speed when discharging feed materials

Highlights

3-Stage Swivelling Chute

  • The swivelling chute operates in 3 stages to optimize the blowing distance for bedding
  • Blowing distance up to 25m.
  • Designed with a turning radius of 260° which enables easy access to even difficult reachable spaces.
  • The 3-stage movement enhance the feeding perfomance without blockage even on long fibrous material.

Drum Feed Control System

  • The Drum Feed Control System (DFCS) is an exclusive feature (patent pending), designed to handle even the most difficult material when feeding.
  • It is a simple and reliable system, which includes a powerful electric cylinder and a comb positioned above the drum.
  • During loading DFCS is engaged, which means that the comb is in a lowered position.
  • This ensures that blockages of the flywheel is minimized during the loading and start up process.
  • Once the flywheel speed is at a sufficient level, all you need to do is to push a button and the DFCS ‘fingers’ will be gradually disengaged and open for full flow through the flywheel resulting in
  • perfect flow.
  • The progressive release of the ‘fingers’ offers a more gentle start, protecting the machine and minimizing the risk of blockages.
  • A reliable and simple system with minimum maintenance!

Drum Knife Configuration - 864

  • The Kverneland 864 features a unique drum – knife configuration.
  • Knives are mounted on angled rings so that they pass a fixed ‘comb’ on alternative sides.
  • This ensures that materials are cut and fed into the flywheel chamber evenly, reducing the risk of blockage, offering even  discharge & leaving the drum and comb clean.
  • The drum is fitted with 14 blades as standard, but will accept a further 28 blades according to material type – simply bolt them on in a matter of minutes.
  • A patented system - the knives pass the fixed comb on alternative sides for a more even cut.

Two Speed Gearbox - 864

  • To provide the correct flywheel speed for bedding and feeding the Kverneland 864 is fitted with a two speed gearbox.
  • At lower speeds the flywheel ensures a metered flow of silage or hay for feeding.
  • At high speed a powerful blow for the most efficient distribution during bedding is ensured.
  • The gearbox speed is adjusted via the handle on the front of the machine.

Easy loading of Bales - 864

  • The hydraulically operated rear door fitted to 864 provides a self loading facility for easy loading of square and round bales.
  • Tailgate and floor chain can be operated via the remote control on the side of the machine.
  • The rear door also offers the ability to carry a second round bale for increased capacity.
  • A bale kit can be fitted to the end of the tailgate to ensure that the bales stay in position during operation.
  • The size of the bale chamber makes it very easy to load the material with a loader - and two round bales can be loaded at the same time - saving time.
