The i-BIO+ features a 230cm wide pick-up
unit with five tine bars and cam-track technology for improved contour
following for cleaner, more efficient grass collection.
Two intake rotors are available ? the
OptiCut 14 or OptiCut 23 ? both of which offer knife group selection:
the OptiCut 14 is fitted with 14 knives to provide a minimum cutting
length of 70mm. Group selection enables the knives to be used in five
formations (0, 4, 7, 7 or 14) to produce the desired chop length. The
OptiCut 23 offers a minimum cutting length of 45mm, with its 23 knives
used in a 0, 7, 11, 12 or 23 arrangement. Each knife is individually
spring-protected against damage from foreign objects. Standard rotor
disengagement and drop floor technology ensure fast and easy clearance
when a blockage may occur.
Bales are formed by 18 PowerTrack
rollers with integrated stainless steel low-friction plates resulting in
a significant reduction in power requirement. All internal working
mechanisms are powered by high quality long-life drive chains which are
complemented by a Beka Max continuous chain oiling system for maximum
strength and reliability. The six rollers in the bottom of the chamber act as wrapping table during the bale wrapping process.
The i-BIO+ can be used with
conventional net binding and can also be fitted with KUHN?s patented
film-on-film bale binding and wrapping system which not only reduces
wrapping costs, but also offers ease of usage and recycling benefits by
eliminating the need for a separate netting.
KUHN?s unique film binding system
uses two film reels to bind the cylindrical side of the bale and offers
several advantages compared to other film binding systems, not least the
ability to use standard sized rolls (25 ?m, 1500 m, 750 mm) therefore
eliminating the need to order separate binding and wrapping film. The
KUHN system also boasts quicker and easier roll loading thanks to a
user-friendly system which hydraulically folds the film reels into their
Switching between film and net
binding is quick and simple as the two systems are separate, making it
easy to switch from one system to the other for different crops.
Bale wrapping is taken care of by
KUHN?s IntelliWrap system which gives complete control of the wrapping
process, allowing the operator to select the number of film layers and
to adjust film overlap. The i-BIO+?s high-speed wrapping ring allows
film to be applied at up to 50 revolutions per minute and produces
well-shaped, tightly sealed bales for improved crop preservation.
The i-BIO+ is ISOBUS compatible ?
with all functions managed via a single, full-colour display terminal ?
and boasts an extremely compact and lightweight design (less than
3,700kg) which makes it very manoeuvrable and well-suited for use on
hilly terrain and within small field systems.
