Increased Raking Accuracy with New Kverneland 9471S

Kverneland’s new generation of compact side delivery rakes comes with an improved gearbox design and optimized raking performance. Called the Kverneland Taarup 9471S, this new model offers a high-capacity, flexible, low power solution for those looking for a rake matching changing conditions.

With a working width of 6.6/7.1m the new 9471 S twin rotor rake can place crop from up to 12.5m into one swath. The accurate ground following system builds on the proven Kverneland Taarup TerraLink solution, controlling the rotor in 3 dimensions to provide superb raking performance, event at high speed. TerraLink is completely maintenance- and wear free.

Make it EVO or VARIO

The new 9471 S is offered in two versions, a standard EVO version and the high spec VARIO version packed with features such as the patented SideShift device and a clever joystick function easily controlling all hydraulic functions of the rake.

The SideShift device makes it possible to sideshift the rotors – both front and the rear - from the tractor cab. Raking along field boundaries or around trees is no problem - as the tractor can run at a safe distance from the obstacles. It is also possible to drive with the tractor on already raked ground.

Improved Gearbox Design

The Kverneland Taarup 9471 S is fitted with the improved CompactLine gearbox visualized by the newly designed gearbox housing. All key components in the gearbox is running in an Kverneland Group Kerteminde AS, Taarupstrandevej 25, DK – 5300 Kerteminde, Denmark, oil bath with maintenance free cam track and cam track followers The movement and timing of the cam track and cam track followers has been optimized to ensure better swath formation and more accurate raking, reducing crop pollution into the swath.

More Productivity through Better Crop Transfer

The twin rotors on this side delivery rake are working independently from each other, making it possible to collect either one large swath from up to 12.5m working width or two smaller swaths. The crop transfer from the first to the second rotor has been improved on the new 9471 S versions to make them operate more accurate, inviting for more productivity through higher working speed.

Other notables on these new rakes are the design of the new third wheel. In addition to improving ground followings it is very easy to adjust and set the correct height. The third wheel can be mounted on either sides of the drawbar. The third wheel is standard on the VARIO version, and available as option on the EVO version.
