Kverneland introduces its new 85156 C, a 15.6m tedder boosting productivity, accuracy and operator comfort. It comes with a new inventive ground following system that takes precision to a new level with easy and simple operations.
15.6m working power
The new Kverneland 85156 C offers greater productivity in all crop types. With close to 16m working width and 14 rotors it is designed with high output and excellent crop quality in mind. All elements of the 85156 C are dimensioned with intensive usage in mind, focusing on providing more productivity and reduced downtime.
Featuring 14 small diameter rotors, this tedder is designed for excellent crop turning in almost any conditions. The small diameter rotor design provides a generous overlap between the rotors, giving an efficient pick-up and turning of the crop as well as equal distribution over the complete working width.
Excellent ground tracking
Accurate ground following is paramount to achieve an excellent feed result. Especially in challenging and demanding field conditions. You want to efficiently turn the crop, not the soil.
The Kverneland solution to following the ground across the full working width of 15.6m is the new TerraFlow solution.
This new ground following system provides a highly flexible frame allowing each of the 14 rotors to accurately follow ground contours. With its new solution for connecting tedder unit and carrier frame the rotors are able to flex and adapt to ground contour independent of the carrier frame. This means tine distance to ground remains constant providing clean and accurate work and a uniform crop flow. A unique Kverneland feature that brings ground adaptation and forage quality to a new level.
The Kverneland 85156 C is fitted with generous 380/55-17 tires to give enough stability of the tedder and ensure good ground protection. 500/50-17 tyres are available as option.
Easy operation and maintenance
To cut downtime to a minimum the Kverneland 85156 C is specifically designed for easy operation and maintenance. The operator of this tedder will enjoy its easy maintenance specifications with long service intervals. Greasing points are limited to a minimum and driveline (except the PTO), rotors and most of the joints are maintenance-free.
All it requires to operate the Kverneland 85156 C is a single acting valve ram for raising and lowering the tedder and a double action valve ram for the folding action, so this tedder is suited for most tractors. The 85156 C folds into a transport width below 3m and it driven like a trailer on road smoothly following behind the tractor.
Activating the headland position to pass areas already spread could not be easier. You just need to activate the single acting valve to lift the tedder unit, giving generous clearance, manoeuvrability and driving stability.
With the new border spreading device you keep the crop inside the field when tedding along borderlines on headlands. The hydraulic activated swath board efficiently keeps the crop within the working width of the tedder.
