The new innovative EXTRA 332XF FlexiSwat

Awarded Grass Machinery of the Year at Agritechnica

The new innovative EXTRA 332XF FlexiSwat, awarded Grass Machinery of the Year at Agritechnica, is the perfect combination of progress and practical farming. This is the first front disc mower with an actively driven swath former, designed for both narrow swathing and wide spreading.

The new FlexiSwat auger actively moves the crop towards the centre of the mower, placing a nice box-shaped swath.

With the option of 3 different swath widths and wide spreading of up to 2.20 m the EXTRA 332XF offers exactly the flexibility that most farmers are looking for: a narrow swath that will go well in-between the tractor wheels and wide spreading for faster wilting of crop. Even high volumes of crop are able to pass through, providing extremely high capacity.

The FlexiSwat places the crop into one even and airy swath. The different swath options allow the operator to adjust the swath width to both weather and material to ensure that the correct moisture and swath quality is achieved. This significantly speeds up the drying process and prepares the swath for easier pick-up or turning with the rotary tedder.

Excellent Cutting Performance
Each side of the auger is working in combination with a guide plate that efficiently transports the crop to the centre without any crop loss or crop pollution. The auger immediately moves the crop away from the discs, inviting for excellent cutting performance. The crop does not touch the ground, but is moved as it is cut, leaving no chance for dirt or soil to mix up with the swath.

All Set in a Minute - Easy Adjustment of Swath Width
Changing from one swath application to the next is made very easy, without any downtime or need for rebuilding the mower. Changing between the different swath widths is done in a minute and can be done directly in the field - no tools required. There is no need to leave the field and go back to the workshop for changing from swathing to wide spreading. All you have to do is release the locks on each guide plate, swipe them to the requested swath width, and lock again.

Outstanding Ground Adaptation
The EXTRA 332XF is exceptionally well adapted to varying field conditions and contours. When encountering even the smallest obstacle during operation the very responsive kinematics associated with the suspension design will step in. The cutterbar will move backwards and up, letting any obstacle pass without risk of damage. This offers maximum protection and lessens the shock loads on the machine.
