With 24’ of pickup in a single pass, the MM 700 Merge Maxx® hay merger has 90% of the capabilities of a 30’ merger at a substantially smaller price point. It is designed for operators who demand additional features to maximize productivity in varying field shapes and sizes, as well as a multitude of crop volumes.
The MM 700 can merge crop to the left, right, split or if needed, with either wing in the raised position. Having the ability to raise the wings independently is particularly useful for opening up fields or cleaning up point rows in irregularly shaped fields. Due to its short wheelbase, the MM 700 does not require steering, even on steep sidehills, unlike competitive machines. The simple, folding design allows quick transition from field to road. Transport is an ultra-narrow 10' wide. Its 2-point hitch allows quick and easy hookup to your tractor.
There are two models available. The basic model is designed for an operator who desires a simple machine to operate. Adjustments of the pickup speeds and belt direction are performed manually on the machine. The deluxe model comes with a simple and straight-forward control terminal, which allows you to adjust pickup speed, belt direction and belt shutoff, all from the comfort of your tractor seat.
Features may include:High-Capacity Pickups with Integrated Frames
Commercially designed pickups treat crop gently, yet are built and tested for extreme use. Chrome-moly tine bars greatly improve strength and wearing characteristics. The central cam design with heavy-duty sealed cam followers provide extra-long life even in the toughest conditions. KUHN high-capacity pickups are designed and build with integrated frames to improve the strength and durability of the pickups and keep the machine looking clean as there is no place for crop to catch and build up.Heavy-Duty Belt Conveyors
Commercial-grade belt conveyors allow the crop to be effectively transitioned into the windrow, regardless of discharge side. The conveyor belt is self-cleaning and requires no tracking adjustments. Each conveyor has an easy-to-access splice for fast removal or replacement, if necessary due to maintenance and normal wear.
A quick-release belt tensioning system simplifies storage and routine adjustment. Easy adjustment from one side maintains uniform pressure over the width of the belt. It is recommended to take the tension off of the belts in between cuttings and during the off season.Anti-Wrapping Discs
To minimize wrapping in long crops, such as oats or long grasses, patented HDPE anti-wrapping discs are installed at the ends of the pickups and rotate with the tine bars. This small improvement reduces dead space, where long crop likes to wrap, as seen with all pickup-style mergers.Self-Contained Hydraulics
Belts and pickups are driven using on-board hydraulic pumps, with hydraulic oil from a 38-gallon reservoir. This large capacity ensures that cool oil is always being circulated through the system. The massive reservoir surface area and specially designed system provide excellent cooling in even the hottest conditions, without the need for an oil cooler.Floating Windguard and Standard Crop Netting
The floating windguard used on the MM 700 eliminates the need to make adjustments when merging different crops or cuttings. The simple design of the floating linkage means the windguard is automatically optimized for differing volumes of crop. The long, curved guiding fingers provide excellent crop guidance onto the center of the belt for fluffy and even windrow creation.
