Hydraulic Spring Adjustment

This feature provides easy and simple setting of the ground pressure. For greater operator comfort, ground pressure of the large suspension spring is set hydraulically from the tractor cab. On the hydraulic version the tension on the large suspension spring, which controls the ground pressure, is adjusted hydraulically, to increase or lower pressure. The chosen ground pressure level is conveniently registered from the easy-to-read scale.

Transport and Vertical Parking

Vertical Transport Position

For transport the mower folds into a compact position well behind the tractor. The folding design ensures that the weight is distributed evenly, with the weight of the mower close to the tractor. Transport height is well below 4.00m.

Parking, Safe and Sure-Footed

With the integrated parking device, storage of the EXTRA 687T is made easy and convenient, requiring a minimum of space during winter storage. The mower is firmly parked on strong and stable parking foot, bringing total height below 4.00m.

Efficient Centre Suspension

Accurate and Simple Suspension

The EXTRA 600 series is fitted with a highly efficient suspension system that includes centre suspended mowing units, efficient  spring suspension and NonStop BreakAway. The mowing units are centre suspended via a suspension spring, to give an even weight distribution across the complete mower width. The benefit is less skid wear, optimum protection of the stubble and less fuel consumption.

Two Mounting Options

EXTRA 600 series can be adjusted for optimal operation according to different circumstances, such as field contours or working width of the front mounted mower. To ensure optimal overlap between front and rear units, the mowing units can be mounted in two positions on the suspension arm.

Vicon NonStop BreakAway

Protection of the Cutterbar

Vicon EXTRA 600 series is all fitted with the Vicon NonStop BreakAway system to protect the cutterbar. The integrated NonStop BreakAway autoreset system will protect the cutterbar from foreign obstacles. If an obstacle is hit in the field the mowing unit will swing backwards and up. This gives maximum protection of the cutterbar.

Effortless Protection

There is no need to stop - or even to reverse the tractor to get the mowing unit into working position again. When engaged the spring loaded design ensures that the Vicon NonStop BreakAway system automatically returns the cutting unit to its´ original working position.

Nylon Tine Conditioning

  • Due to the nylon tines fitted to the conditioner, the total weight of the machines is kept to a minimum, while keeping an aggressive conditioning.
  • The fixed conditioning fingers are made from high quality nylon, to make them very rigid.
  • This means excellent protection from stones and other obstacles. A perfect solution for farmer and smaller contractor machines!

  • Operators will immediately love the virtually quiet operation of the new cutterbar – convenient during a long and busy working day
