Attachment and storage Compact frame for close attachment to the three-point linkage The machine is automatically aligned in the centre when folding into transport position Damper struts ensure stable rides behind the tractor The compact design shifts less weight from the front axle and reduces lift requirement Special stands at front and rear for safe storage The KRONE Vendro tedders impress by stable rides and convenient changeovers that are executed from the seat. With the rotors folded down and attachment close to the tractor, the centre of gravity is low and close to the tractor for safe road travel and space-saving storage. Absolutely compact The V-shaped and compact frame brings the machine™s cen -tre of gravity very close to the tractor, signi˜cantly reducing the lift requirement so the machine can be operated by small tractors. At the same time, less weight is taken o˚ the front axle and steering is not a˚ected. Ground contouring The headstock o˚ers various coupling positions for the top link to implement various work heights. The top link goes in the elongated hole on those machines that have the leading gauge wheel. This type of attachment gives optimum con -touring and ensures the material is picked up and spread cleanly and in a wide mat. Perfect guidance The tedders have mechanical or hydraulic damper struts depend -ing on speci˜cation. Hydraulic dampers are available for all ma -chines as an option. They bring the booms together Œ gently Œ as the machine is being raised out of work. Also, they absorb shockloads and vibrations and take out sway when tedding in curved lines so that every sin -gle blade of grass is picked up and tedded into perfect forage. 4 | Vendro

Good footing In storage position the tedder rests on two wide stands rather than on its own wheels. In this po -sition, it is also easily attached and removed from the tractor. An extra prop The prop stand at the rear counterbal -ances the stroke of the damper struts as the machine is removed from the tractor. The stands raise the wheels from the ground avoiding tyre damage from long periods of storage. 5Vendro |

New details in a modern styling Stylish deck The sloping deck in the middle of the frame won™t collect any debris or dirt. Its modern styling combines with a new colour scheme. The hoop guarding that surrounds the frame and the rotors is held in place by sturdy brackets. Perfect -ly formed, the hoops o˚er easy access, safe operation and maximum longevity. Fold-away agility The fold-away hoops make sure the tedder is an agile machine despite being so compact, allowing it to make the tightest turns along ˜eld borders and on headlands. The Vendro tedder stands out for its new styling which re˜ects of its modern and innovative technical design that features a number of novelties and re˚nements down to the smallest detail, o˛ering maximum operator comfort and leading to excellent-quality forage. 6 | Vendro

The KRONE OctoLink clutches KRONE OctoLink ˜nger clutch Œ eight ˜ngers make frictional connections The driveline to the rotors is never cut No risk of driveline damage due to operator error Maintenance-free driveline minimises service and maintenance and maximises lifetime Eight grippy ˚ngers Each rotor is driven by a well-proven ˜nger clutch which consists of eight ˜ngers that make a frictional and reliable connection inside the driveline. No matter which angle, the power ˛ow to the next rotor is never cut o˚. The extremely robust ˜nger clutches are abso -lutely lubrication-free, freeing you from time-consum -ing servicing and making you more productive. Very ˛exible The eight-˜nger clutches make Vendro an enormous agile machine. They allow the outboard rotors to fold 180° towards the middle without any risk of damaging the driveline. Thanks to this enormous ˛exibility you can store the machine in tight space and travel at a reduced transport height. All Vendro tedders bene˚t from the tried-and-tested KRONE OctoLink ˚nger clutches. The rugged units require no lubrication at all. This is the kind of dependable and low-maintenance machine you have always wanted. 8 | Vendro

Standard-˚t overrunning clutch All tedders have a main gearbox with overrunning clutch as a standard feature which allows the rotors to phase out instead of stopping instantly when the pto is switched o˚, eliminating any risk of damage due to overrunning components. The gearboxes Low-maintenance and long-lasting The rotor gearboxes are mounted under the robust frame where they are safe from exposure to the strains of work and operation. Sealed and ˜lled with semi-˛uid grease, the boxes are maintenance-free and extremely durable. Standard overrunning clutch in the main gearbox maximises safety when turning o˚ the machine Rotor gearboxes Ł Maintenance-free and liquid-grease lubricated Ł Long service life thanks to permanent lubrication and the cantilevered design Reduction gearbox produces small night swaths for faster wilting The KRONE rotary tedders are designed to deliver perfect functionality. Key elements in this context are the main gearbox with a standard overrunning clutch and the maintenance-free and permanently lubricated rotor gearboxes. The reduction gearboxes It is possible to operate the rotors at lower speeds to pro -duce narrow night swaths. This is implemented by optional ad-on gearboxes that are particularly bene˜cial in haymak -ing. In con˜guration two rotors form a pair each of which groups the material into one narrow swath that absorbs less moisture during the night and is spread again on the following day. This technique reduces the risk of variations in crop wilt in the same ˜eld. 9Vendro |

The KRONE OptiTurn rotors Wheels running in close vicinity of the tines Clad with big ˛otation tyres, the rotor wheels run as closely as possible to the tines for optimum contouring, avoiding unnecessary contamination for high-quality forage. Uniform spreads For consistent spreads in any type of condition, the tine arms of two adjacent rotors overlap generously. A con -sistent mat of crop speeds up the process of wilting, allowing you to produce high-quality forage in narrow harvest windows. Bolted tine carriers The robust plates that hold the tine arms are bolted to the rotor and secured by an extra plate under the tine arms Œ a heavy-duty design that also deals with high-volume crops. The rotor wheels run extremely close to the rotor providing optimum contouring Curved 3D tines lift and spread the crop perfectly Rotors overlap for clean and uniform spreads Optimum spreads for uniform wilting and highest-quality forage The KRONE OptiTurn rotor design make real big-time. The special design sees the rotors overlap generously so the KRONE OptiTurn tines can lift the crop cleanly and spread it uniformly at an optimum width for fast wilts and optimum animal feed. This technology boosts your productivity not only in the ˚eld but also in the milking parlour. 10 | Vendro

KRONE OptiTurn tines An optimum quality of work is delivered by the new 3D tines. The curved shafts lift and throw the material with greater ease which is the ˜rst step in making clean and high-quality forage. Variable settings The tines are attached to the tine arms with an eccentric plate. This allows you to alter the tine angle to one of three positions. The proper angle is important for good results in varying crop condi -tions and ˜eld contours. Unequal tine length for perfect work The two shafts in one pair of tines are unequally long so their tips are always in parallel as they hover above the ground, lifting the material cleanly and without contamination. This so-called comb -ing e˚ect mixes the various layers of the mat for uniform and con -sistent wilts. 11Vendro |
