Gathering Wheels

Jun 28 2015 08:12 PM | puritanize in Articles

The AG Belt™ gathering wheel uses a proprietary recipe of natural rubber and SBR that is integrally molded to produce the most durable, high performance rubber
gathering wheel available. The rubber fingers on the AG Belt gathering wheels are extremely durable, providing optimal performance longer by resisting finger
breakage under extreme conditions.

Our gathering wheels deliver more hay to the baler pickup and assist in gathering windblown windrows. A cleaner field on the
first pass means you don’t leave money in the field.

Marcrest Manufacturing Inc introduces the newest member of the Bale Baron line-up, the 4240SP Bale Baron, which will make its debut at the NFMS in Louisville, KY.

Kuhns Manufacturing Launches New Website

Nov 17 2014 09:19 PM | puritanize in Articles

Posted Image

Kuhns Manufacturing has launched their new website at www. kuhnsmfg.com. If you are not familiar with Kuhns, now would be a great time to head to their new website and checkout what they have to offer.

The Kuhns Hay Accumulator system uses gravity and a simple mechanical system to efficiently arrange small square bales into a group. A Kuhns grabber or Tie-Grabber mounted on a front end loader or skid steer can pick up the bales and load them onto a waiting truck or wagon. The packs can then be stacked in the barn with a grabber. Without the operator ever needing to touch a bale.

The accumulator uses no hydraulics, electronics, or chains. Using excess energy from the baler plunger, the bales are pushed up and out the top of the chute. As the bales slide down the accumulator bed, the last bale in each row swings a gate to open the next row. The last bale in the group opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs and counterweights automatically return all of the gates back to their starting position, ready for the next bale.

The best solutions to complex problems are the simple ones. As long as that simplicity gets results. Dependable equipment repeats these results time and time again, without error. The Kuhns Hay Accumulator system blends simplicity, efficiency, and dependability into a truly exceptional small square bale handling solution. Our seven different models give you the ability to optimize bale handling capacity for your specific farm operation.

Sep 07 2014 10:10 PM | puritanize in Articles

John Deere launched recently their new L Series Balers. The new balers have a high capacity rotor, all this thanks to their partnership with Kuhn.

"Kuhn is a great dealer and partner," says Jeremy Unruh, product line manager, Ottumwa Works. "We took the original design to help us out of the gate and then changed more than 85% of it to fit the needs of the North American market."

The 2 high capacity balers , the L330 and L340 will produce dense and perfectly formed bales. The L330 is 83 inch wide when working and the L340 has a 90 inch width.

Key Points to the balers are:
  • Heavy duty drive train
  • 45 Stroke per minute gear box
  • Gear and shaft driven
  • Double tie knotters
  • Heavy duty single fork system
  • On board hydraulic density controls
  • Integrated lubrication system and wiper plate
  • ISOBUS electronics
  • Electronic knotter flags
