  • INDUSTRY EXCLUSIVE VARIFLOW™ SYSTEM

    This innovative system makes preparing your forage harvester for crop type changes even easier. The Variflow™ system allows an operator to quickly pivot the crop processor out of the feed channel and moves the accelerator closer to the cutterhead. This means greater suction for sticky grass crops while reducing the horsepower required. And the best part; you don’t have to remove the crop processor! A hand pump located inside the 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 use the pump to smoothly rotate the processor out of the crop flow.
  • TACKLE TOUGH CROPS WITHOUT REDUCING SPEED

    The extra-wide Variflow™ accelerator propels even tough crops 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™ system moves the accelerator moves closer to the cutterhead to improve crop flow and reduce power consumption. A grass chute is put into place above the accelerator. Putting the processor back is just as easy.
  • LARGE CROP PROCESSOR

    With 10-inch rolls that are 30 inches wide, the large 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. Hardened 99-tooth rolls provide long life. Running at a 22% standard speed difference 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.
  • HEAVY DUTY CP OPTION

    The optional HD crop processor matches well with the larger throughput of the bigger FR models. It features hardened chrome rolls with a staggered tooth pattern- 99 on the front roll and 126 on the rear roll. The rolls run at a 30% speed differential, allowing a wider gap with no compromise in kernel cracking.
  • WIDEST SPOUT ON THE MARKET

    You'll have no capacity problems discharging the chopped crop with FR Forage Cruisers. 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.
