DRIVELINES AND TRACTION

Efficient power transfer

In order to get the very most out of your FR Forage Cruiser, efficient power transmission from the engine to the driven parts and ultimately to the ground is a must. The range’s in-line concept and direct driveline logic guarantee this and so much more.

Dual drive option

When using attachments in demanding crop conditions, an optional Dual Drive system adds a second hydrostatic drive that allows for more power to be transferred to the crop attachment. Dual Drive also allows you to adjust attachment speed independently from the feed rolls, on the go, in the field, to fine-tune header feeding and increase machine output.

Direct driveline efficiency

The single drivebelt concept has eliminated parasitic losses inherent with transfer gearbox driven systems, and transmits 100% of the power to the cutterhead, crop processor and blower for the ultimate in foraging efficiency. The FR920 is fitted with heavy duty 9HB V-belt drives to transfer every last drop of their performance.
