Full Width BreakAway

Our NonStop BreakAway system just got even better. With the new QuattroLink suspension this system now offers protection across the full working width of the mower, including the part closest to the tractor. There are no limiting factors on the inside part of the mower, giving the driver true peace of mind. When hitting an obstacle in the field, the mowing unit will instantly move backwards and up, and then return to the original position.

Vario - Suspension Arm

Hydraulic Adjustment of Overlap

EXTRA 736T Vario and 7100T Vario are fitted with hydraulic SideShift integrated into the carrying arm allowing each mowing units to move 400mm. To easily compensate for changing field conditions, the adjustable overlap is designed as a telescopic arm, directly into the suspension.

Ground Pressure Remains Constant

During mowing operation the carrying arm always remains even to the ground, giving the mowing unit the freedom to instantly compensate and float across uneven ground contours. The true benefit of the suspension concept is that even though overlap is changed, the chosen ground pressure remains the same.

Efficient Headland Management EXTRA 700

The EXTRA 700 series provides generous clearance across the complete cutterbar, including the inside area. When lifting the mower on headlands, the mowing unit is raised and the carrying arm is tilted to a 10° angle. This provides the EXTRA 700 series with a level ground clearance of minimum 500mm across the full working width. When lowing the mowing unit the carrying arm is lowered evenly without one side touching the ground before the rest of the mower, avoiding unnecessary stress and wear on the mower.
