Variflow Accelerator and Crop Processor
The extra-wide Variflow accelerator propels even tough crops like corn with maximum efficiency. The large crop processor ensures you end up with high-quality feed. And when you remove the crop processor to chop grass, the patented Variflow accelerator moves closer to the cutterhead to improve crop flow and reduce power consumption.
SWITCH FROM CORN TO GRASS IN ONLY MINUTES
A hand pump located inside the new large service area hydraulically swings the crop processor out of the crop flow. No tools are needed. It takes just two minutes to release a locking pin and uses the pump to smoothly rotate the processor out. A grass chute is put into place above the accelerator. Putting the processor back is just as easy. Locating the accelerator closer to the cutterhead provides a huge advantage in tough crops that are harder to blow. The FR is designed to handle these with no problems.
LARGE OPTIONAL CROP PROCESSOR
With 10-inch rolls that are 30 inches wide, the large optional crop processor offers more than enough capacity to handle the entire crop flow delivered through the machine. A sawtooth pattern on the rolls provides aggressive processing to guarantee all kernels get cracked. Chrome rolls provide long life. Running at a 22% standard speed difference (10% optional) guarantees perfectly processed crop. From the driver's seat, the roll gap can be adjusted on the go, from 1 to 10 mm. Heavy springs keep constant pressure on the crop. A single, 6-banded belt keeps the processor rolls running at the perfect speed.
INDUSTRY-LEADING ACCELERATOR ADJUSTMENT
The unique accelerator position adjustment feature ensures the machine's productivity in grass. Simple wrenches are used to make quick adjustments to move the back plate of the accelerator forward. This adjustment compensates for wear and ensures top performance of the accelerator.
WIDEST SPOUT ON THE MARKET
You'll have no capacity problems discharging the chopped crop with FR Series harvesters. The 13-inch-wide spout and 210 degrees of spout rotation allow for fast, precise crop discharge. Large, flip-open spout covers offer easy service of liners. Corn and grass flippers are also available.
