Racecar Technology Applied for Mower Conditioners
What makes the QuattroLink suspension unique? The mowing unit is pulled by four suspension arms fitted onto a fixed carrying arm that allows the mowing unit to float independently over the field, adjusting highly accurately and instantly to any changes in ground contours.
No Compromises on Flexibility
The mowing pattern is extremely flexible with a vertical working range of 700mm up and down and a transverse working range of 30°. The 4 arm suspension concept ensures constant ground pressure during working operations.
How You Will Benefit from QuattroLink
Like a race car you want better tracking, ability to go at faster speed and adjust instantly to changing field conditions when operating your mower conditioner. These are the main benefits you will experience when running the kverneland 3300 series and 53100 MT Vario. The four suspension arms provide the mowing unit with an exceptional flexibility in adapting instantly to demanding ground contours inviting for higher speed and more productivity.
Our NonStop BreakBack system just got even better. With the new QuattroLink suspension this system now offers protection across the full working width of the mower, including the part closest to the tractor. There are no limiting factors on the inside part of the mower, giving the driver true peace of mind. When hitting an obstacle in the field, the mowing unit will instantly move backwards and up, and then return to the original position.
Hydraulic Adjustment of Overlap
Kverneland 3336 MT Vario and 53100 MT Vario are fitted with hydraulic SideShift integrated into the carrying arm allowing each mowing units to move 400mm. To easily compensate for changing field conditions, the adjustable overlap is designed as a telescopic arm, directly into the suspension.
Ground Pressure Remains Constant
During mowing operation the carrying arm always remains even to the ground, giving the mowing unit the freedom to instantly compensate and float across uneven ground contours. The true benefit of the suspension concept is that even though overlap is changed, the chosen ground pressure remains the same.
The Kverneland 3300 series provides generous clearance across the complete cutterbar, including the inside area. When lifting the mower on headlands, the mowing unit is raised and the carrying arm is tilted to a 10° angle. This provides the Kverneland 3000 series with a level ground clearance of minimum 500mm across the full working width. When lowing the mowing unit the carrying arm is lowered evenly without one side touching the ground before the rest of the mower, avoiding unnecessary stress and wear on the mower
Vertical Transport Position
For transport the mower folds into a compact position well behind the tractor. The folding design ensures that the weight is distributed evenly, with the weight of the mower close to the tractor. Transport height is well below 4.00m.
Parking, Safe and Sure-Footed
With the integrated parking device, storage of the machine is made easy and convenient, requiring a minimum of space during winter storage. The mower is firmly parked on strong and stable parking foot, bringing total height below 4.00m.
Even More Efficient Conditioning
The new conditioner plate can be adjusted at both front and rear ends to customize the conditioner to crop intensity. The front end is adjusted separately to suit the crop intensity, even for massive crop, to avoid any blockages. Rear end is adjusted to ensure smooth and efficient crop flow into swaths or wide wide spreading.
Steel Tine Conditioner
Utilizing centrifugal force is what makes the Kverneland SemiSwing conditioner stand out among other conditioning systems. It offers an aggressive conditioning effect while still offering excellent tine protection and virtually no wear and tear. During operation tines will stay in a fixed position, providing full conditioning with minimum wear.
Swath Plates Automatically Expand
Swath plates automatically expand when being slided inwards to support efficient and accurate swathing.
Easy Change-Over for Widespreading
Changing from swathing to widespreading is virtually a one minute job. The swath plates are easily slided to the side and the FlipOver widespreading vanes are turned 180°. No tools are required.
Even More Efficient Conditioning
The new conditioner plate can be adjusted at both front and rear ends to customise the conditioner to crop intensity.
The front end (1) is adjusted separately to suit the crop intensity, even for massive crop, to avoid any blockages.
Rear end (2) is adjusted to ensure smooth and efficient crop flow into swaths or widespreading.
