Kinze 3600 ASD Planter
Kinze expands its 3600 Series with 12-row and 16-row configurations. Equipped with Air Seed Delivery (ASD), the planters have two 40-bu. poly hoppers for delivery to individual row units. The three-section frame features 14° flex up and down, and hydraulic weight transfer keeps the toolbar even and prevents the wings from lifting out of the ground. EdgeVac and mechanical metering systems are available, and models can be outfitted with Interplant row units. Transport width is 11'2". Monitor options include KPM III, Kinze Cobalt and Ag Leader Integra. The models are designed for contact drive, but can have hydraulic drive. For more, visit a Kinze dealer or www.kinze.com.
Massey Ferguson RK Series
Designed to make uniform windrows to match any baling or chopping applications, the new RK Series rotary rake from Massey Ferguson is available in three models: Model RK3824—Single Basket, 13.5' with right-side delivery; Model RK3855—Twin Basket, 27.5' with either right-side delivery or two single windrows; and Model RK3879—Twin Basket, 26.6' with center delivery. By gently sweeping rather than rolling the crop to the center, the RK Series rotary rakes maximize leaf. All rakes in the series feature a heavy-duty frame and are equipped with the exclusive Rotorflex rotor suspension system, which lets the rakes closely follow the contour of your field through dips and over hills for a cleaner job of raking, without getting debris into the crop. For more information, visit your local Massey Ferguson dealer or go to www.MasseyFerguson.com.
Kuhn GMD 1010 Series
Kuhn North America adds to the GMD 1010 Series of disk mowers with the 10'2" GMD 3110 and 11'6" GMD 3510 models. The exclusive “lubed-for-life” cutterbar reduces maintenance requirements and provides a cleaner cut at varied speeds, while the patented Lift-Control system improves suspension. These models also feature a nonstop auto-reset safety breakaway and removable disk bearing stations for convenient, reliable operation and quick service. Hydraulic-folding, horizontal rear transport provides low, narrow positioning with effective suspension, which reduces load and shock on the tractor.
