Twin Rotor Centre Delivery Rakes
Swadro TC | TC Plus
The flexible twin-rotor centre-delivery rakes: TC and TC Plus stand out for producing exceptionally consistent windrows while working at extremely high rates. Centre- delivery rakes have only one rotor at a time work the crop and so these models achieve an excellent quality of forage. Swadro TC models offer work widths from 6.80 m (22'4") to 8.80 m (28'11") whereas Swadro TC 760 and the higher-specification models offer even variable work widths. The thick-walled and large-diameter tine arms carry 10.5 mm (0.4") double tines that wind around the arms in three massive spring coils offering outstanding flexibility and longevity. Each tine arm carries four double tines
Individual rotor lift-out: The rotors can be raised individually out of work, an option that brings great advantages in wedges, along boundaries and in low-yielding crops.
Setting the width mechanically: Swadro TC 760 is equipped with a mechanical work width adjustment system. The arms telescope in and out as you operate a crank with just one hand.
Changing work widths hydraulically: A hydraulic width setting system is standard specification on Swadro TC 760 and all larger models. The current work width is indicated on a large scale which is easy to see from the cab.
Swadro TC 680 and 760 can be equipped with a new development from KRONE – a hydraulic rotor with 6 tines that disturb and aerate dry and light material which placed in the middle of the rake and between the rotors. The disturber promotes uniform wilting and ultimately the quality of hay and leafy forage such as lucerne.
An extremely nimble machine: Swadro TC and TC Plus are attached to the two- point headstock by a ball bearing joint and a rod steered undercarriage with articulated steering. This combination makes these rakes particularly manoeuvrable – a special boon in awkward areas where no crop is left behind and no shunting is required. The machine simply goes into every corner of the field without manoeuvring.
Great stability across the direction of travel and exceptional castering are the stand-out features of those undercarriages that are approved to 40 km/h (25 mph). Quick changeovers: bring drown the transport height to less than 4 m (13'2"), fold up the rotors without removing any tine arms first, and retract the telescoping arms to reduce the machine width.
