Racecar Technology Applied for Mower Conditioners
What makes the QuattroLink suspension unique? The mowing unit is pulled by four suspension arms fitted onto a fixed carrying arm that allows the mowing unit to float independently over the field, adjusting highly accurately and instantly to any changes in ground contours.
No Compromises on Flexibility
The mowing pattern is extremely flexible with a vertical working range of 700mm up and down and a transverse working range of 30°. The 4 arm suspension concept ensures constant ground pressure during working operations.
How You Will Benefit from QuattroLink
Like a race car you want better tracking, ability to go at faster speed and adjust instantly to changing field conditions when operating your mower conditioner. These are the main benefits you will experience when running the EXTRA 700 series. The four suspension arms provide the mowing unit with an exceptional flexibility in adapting instantly to demanding ground contours inviting for higher speed and more productivity.
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.
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.
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.
Even Weight Balance for High Speed Transport
The complete weight of the EXTRA 700 is spread evenly on both rear tyres, with a 50/50% weight balance. This means the tractor in not sliding to one side during transport, providing extremely stable running characteristics of tractor and mower during the transport, inviting for higher speed.
Parking, Safe and Sure-Footed
With the integrated parking device, storage of the EXTRA 700 is made easy and convenient, requiring a minimum of space during winter storage. The mower is firmly parked on strong and stable parking foot.
EXTRA 736T Vario
The Mower folds hydraulically for transport and the telescoping frame arm moves to lowest overlap position, to reach a transport height below 3.70m
