Grassland kit from Krone impresses at SIMA show

Krone UK was well represented at this year’s SIMA show in Paris, with a new engine in the BiG X 700/770 models and the new range of RX forage wagon and Swadro rakes.

Both of the mid range BiG X 700 and 770 are now powered by Liebherr V8 engines. Built using hard-wearing components these engines have twice as long service intervals – engine oil and filters are only changed after 1,000 engine hours.

The Liebherr engine features high torque even at low engine speeds. A ConstantPower feature senses the current load and controls ground speed so that the engine operates always within the optimum torque and output ranges – and at the pre-set speed.

Krone’s new range of forage wagon replaces the ZX 400 GL/GD and ZX 450 GL models with RX 360 GL/GD (vertical headboard, short tailgate), RX 400 GL / GD (pivoting headboard, short tailgate) and RX 430 GL (pivoting headboard, long tailgate for large volumes of crop).
