Airy Box-Shaped Swath

  • The crop is not touching the ground, but moved as it is cut, leaving no chance for dirt or soil being mixed up with the swath.
  • The auger immediately moves the crop away from the discs, inviting for excellent cutting performance.
  •  Each side of the auger is working in combination with a guide plate, that efficiently transports the crop to the middle without any crop loss or crop pollution.
  • The EXTRA 332XF leaves a fluffy box shaped swath, and is not just dropping the mown crop onto the ground.
  • The EXTRA 332XF is not moving two swaths next to each other like drum mowers concept typically does, but places the crop into one even and airy swath. This significantly speeds up the drying process and prepares the

Ground Adaptation

The new EXTRA 332F is characterized by excellent cutting performance and ground following ability in all terrain. The design does not require a flexible front linkage, as the movement is build into the machine. 

To ensure best possible pattern of movement, the mowing unit moves independently from the front linkage.

The mower design allows a transverse adaptation of up to 17°

750 or 1000 RPM

  • Standard PTO speed is 1000 rpm. However by simply switching driveline pulleys, 750 rpm for reduced fuel consumption can be achieved. 
  • This makes it possible to maintain the correct PTO speed, but using reduced engine revs, creating an opportunity for lower fuel consumption – an innovative solution to the problem of front PTO systems not offering an Economy speed.
