The KRONE BiG M 500 driveline allows operators to achieve work rates of more than 20 hectares (49.4 acres) per hour. After all, short and direct drivelines offer the best efficiency. The power flows from the axially and mid-mounted engine directly to the transfer box, which splits the power and sends it down the shafts and gearboxes to drive the cutterbars. The suspension system of the huge decks that mount in their center of gravity is controlled from the cab.
Height of cut control: The height of cut is set separately on each mower and from the cab-based EasyTouch terminal, which controls hydraulic rams that tilt each deck individually and steplessly. Of course, the settings are stored to the system and retrieved from the joystick.
