KUHN GA 8030 and 9030 semi-mounted, twin-rotor rotary rakes are designed for intensive use and simple operation. These side-delivery models excel in a variety of applications, such as managing crop densities, and choosing between one or two windrows. During heavy first cut or light fourth cut, you can control the volume of crop in the windrow. Rake individual swaths or combine the crop from two passes to form one windrow.
You will particularly appreciate the versatility of one or two windrows, with the GA 8030, when wanting to turn two windrows simultaneously or produce night windrows quickly to reduce dew on the crop.
KUHN GA 8030 and 9030 rotary rakes include important innovative features for your benefit. One of these features is the Stabilift™ suspension, an exclusive design lifts the rotors and locks them in slightly inclined position for time savings, high ground clearance and hydraulic locking during transport. Other design features include the StabiDrive™ and heavy-duty Masterdrive® GIII gearbox. These semi-mounted models have excellent tracking and stability on uneven ground, great maneuverability, reduced dimensions in transport position and easy adjustments.
Features may include:Masterdrive® GIII Gearbox
The patented KUHN Masterdrive GIII double-reduction gearbox is designed for heavy crops, tough field conditions, and intensive use. Key components have been improved to build lighter, yet stronger rotors such as: aluminum alloy housings, optimized cam track minimizing force on the follower bearing, larger follower bearing diameter reducing rotation speed and pressure on the cam, tine arms with large-dimension bearings, sturdier pivoting tine support shaft, reinforced main shaft, and reinforced mounting of tine arms on tine holders. The Masterdrive GIII’s ability to move heavy wet crop, handle dry hay gently, and neatly windrow corn stalks is unrivaled in the industry.Double-Curved Tine Arms
Double-curved tine arms are designed to form fluffy and straight windrows for superior raking quality at high speeds. Fluffy windrows allow more air movement through the crop promoting fast and uniform drying!
KUHN rotary rakes achieve this by following two basic principles for ideal windrow formation. First, the tine arms maintain a positive forward position right up to the point where the forage is delivered to the windrow ensuring gentle crop handling and minimal ash incorporation. Second, a steep cam track allows the tines to be raised very quickly to provide additional clearance over the windrow.
