ProLink Suspension Concept

  • ProLink 3-dimensional suspension concept for excellent ground tracking.
  • Very responsive and durable suspension concept with two largely designed suspension spring for excellent stability and even ground pressure.
  • Flexible adaptation range of 250mm downwards and 420mm upwards.
  • Transverse adaptation range of 24º.
  • Generous headland clearance of 420mm.

Protection of Cutterbar

  • The Vicon ProLink suspension concept provides maximum protection of the cutterbar during operation. If hitting a stone or foreign obstacle, a three-fold action takes place simultaneously.
  • 1. The cutterbar will move back and up, due to the geometry of the suspension.
  • 2. Tension in the ground pressure springs increases, adding additional lift to the mowing section, which helps to clear the obstacle.
  • 3. The angle of the cutterbar repositions from 4° downwards to horizontal, for better clearance of the obstacle

Stubble Height Adjustment

  • Stubble height adjustment is conveniently integrated directly into the suspension linkage for quick and accurate setting of cutting height.
  • There is no need to tilt the A-frame of the tractor

Beyond Operator Comfort

• EXTRA 700F features a host of new improvements to bring operator comfort to a higher level.
• Easy access to cutterbar for routine maintenance and service inspections. Complete front hood opens to a 90º positon.
• When the front hood is lifted up, it stays in position by a hydraulic damper.
• The complete mower is designed for easy servicing and the low maintenance PTO shaft only requires one seasonal greasing.
• One touch parking handle, to lock and prepare the mower for dismounting.
• The new parking foot is easily activated and keeps the mower in a level position when parked – ready for quick remounting.

Dual Adjustment of Conditioner Plate

  • EXTRA 732FT and 736FT offer dual adjustment of the conditioner plate.
  • The conditioner plate can be adjusted at both front and rear ends to provide full adaptability of the conditioner to crop intensity.
  • The plate can be set at 5 different positions at the front and 5 different positions at the rear.
  • When mowing high and intensive first cut crop you can chose to open up completely at the front and rear end, to allow the massive amount of material to pass through without blockages.

Swath Plates

  • built-in, guided swath plates are standard.
  • Changing from spreading to swathing or adjusting the swath width to crop conditions is done in seconds.
  • The swath plates automatically expand when being slid inwards, to support efficient and accurate swathing and there is no need to dismount them to achieve full width spreading.

Excellent Visibility

  • Compact design for good overview during transport and operation.
  • Even when lifted for transport, the Kverneland 3300F series provides excellent visibility to the front.
  • Hydraulic folding of FlexProtect guards are available (optional).

EXTRA Cutterbar

  • The EXTRA cutterbar is designed for low maintenance and offers a very quiet operation.
  • Operators will immediately love the virtually quiet operation of the new cutterbar – convenient during a long and busy working day
  • Fully welded cutterbar for a very strong construction.
  • Even number of contrarotating discs for improved overlap.
  • Three bladed discs for more cuts.
  • Smooth stone guard design for excellent cutting quality.
  • High oil capacity ensuring low working temperature.
  • Low noise level thanks to specially tooled gear wheels.
  • Twisted knives for a clean cut in all conditions.

SemiSwing Conditioner

  • The SemiSwing conditioner system combines the aggressive conditioning seen from fixed fingers with the excellent tine protection typically associated with free swinging tines.
  • During normal operation the tines are fixed for effective conditioning, but if a SemiSwing tine comes into contact with an obstacle, force will exceed 22kg (48.5lbs) and it will spring back and leave a generous space for the obstacles up to 103mm to pass.
  • The complete conditioner tine has been redesigned to move the centre of gravity. The result is that the tine will stay in position when hitting the crop, to give full conditioner effect and to minimise wear and tear on the turning points.
  • The angle and position of the SemiSwing tines give a better crop transport. The crop is moved away from the conditioner rotor, resulting in reduced risk of blockages and full effect of the conditioner plate.
