Features

Use front hitch for maximum productivity

The F310R and F350R Front-Mounted Mower-Conditioners are used to maximise the potential of the 7R or 8R Tractor equipped with a front power take-off (PTO) and front hitch. This 1000-rpm mower-conditioner can be combined with the following 1000 rpm mower-conditioners to increase productivity.

With the new twin rear-mounted mower-conditioner, R870R, R950R and R990R unmatched productivity is gained with cutting width from 8.7 m (28.5 ft) up to 9.9 m (32.5 ft) in one pass.

A perfect and fast cut with the rotary disc cutterbar

The 3.5-m (11.5-ft) wide cutterbar

Power is transmitted from the 1000-rpm power take-off (PTO) on the front of tractor through gearcases to the cutterbar.

Quick knives exchange cutterbar
A cutterbar has been developed to increase productivity through a significant down-time reduction when changing knives. Needed time drop down from three minutes per knife to about seconds. It is an efficient way to save up to 40 minutes of maintenance time on a F350R mower-conditioner.

Conditioning and swath delivery

Producers need to be reactive to weather conditions when harvest is ready. They must cut faster, with efficient conditioning using swathing or wide spread.

To improve productivity:

  • Five conditioning positions are available with two rotation speeds of 755 or 1000 RPM.
  • Speed change is done by a simple selector on the gear box.

Windrowing solutions to match any needs

Front-mount mower-conditioner windrow formation
The desired swath width can easily be obtained by loosening the handle on each side and moving the adjustable swath deflectors to the desired position. Swath width is adjustable from 1.2 m to 2.4 m (3.9 to 7.9 ft) for the F310R and F350R.
Rear-mount mower-conditioner windrow formation
Forming shields are easily adjusted to control material flow. This allows the operator to match the windrow width to harvesting requirements.

Wide spread is available on all machines when very fast drying is required. The bundle consists of vanes that are installed behind the conditioning hood. The windrow width when using the widespread kit can be adjusted to be approximately the same as the cutting width of the platform.
