Kuhn increases feed option with Primor

Written by 

CHOPPING AND distributing straw or big-bale silage, regardless of their consistency or quality, is easier using a new-model Kuhn Primor feeder/bedder.

The trailed Primor 3570 holds 3 cubic metres, so it will carry two 1.5m round bales. It can feed any long-fibre forage and distribute bedding straw up to 18m through a top chute.

The 3570 has a hydraulically operated regulator at the entrance to the feed rotor which adjusts throughput according to material quality, so maintaining working efficiency.

Kuhn says the key to the Primor's effectiveness is its robust two-speed gearbox. This typically runs at its lower rate for silage, and faster when distributing straw.

A power shaft drives a four-strand power-band system, engaged/disengaged by a hydraulic cylinder. The power band provides a high level of power to the distribution beater rotor and acts as a safety device.

The bed chain conveyor runs independently to draw material into the beater rotor.

This can be run at varying speeds, and reversed, to control the flow of material into the distribution area. Feed or bedding straw come out the same top chute, height adjustable.

An optional 300-degree swivelling chute improves access in tight spaces.

The rear door of the Primor 3570 is hydraulically controlled, for self loading. All functions are controlled electronically from the tractor cab.

Minimum power requirement is 70hp when the Primor 3570 is used for silage or haylage.
