Automatic working modes for the highest work rates
The FR Forage Cruiser has two driving modes: Power Cruise and ECO engine management, which can be selected independently or
used in conjunction with each other. Selection is based on crop conditions and operator preference.
Power Cruise™ II system: automatically adapts engine and ground speed in relation to actual load for fuel savings of up to 15%. During
periods of reduced load, during headland turns for example, engine speed is reduced to improve fuel efficiency. When throughput
increases, so does engine speed to maintain a higher work rate.
ECO engine management mode: benefits from two settings, a high range where engine speed can be set between 2100 - 1950rpm,
ideal for foraging grass, and a low range which spans 1850 - 1700rpm, which is perfect when working in maize. The operator sets
the desired engine speed and the ECO management mode works to ensure the engine always remains fully loaded to deliver optimal
operating efficiency and performance, whilst maintaining a constant forward speed. The top transport speed of 40kph can be achieved
at a mere 1200rpm with 20% fuel savings and a quieter operating environment.
