Krone Wins Forage Harvester of the Year 2016

The BiG X 630 has been crowned “Machine of the Year 2016”. The Krone forage harvester not only impressed the editors of the German publisher Deutscher Landwirtschaftsverlag (DLV), it also received numerous votes from DLV readers in an parallel poll.

The 626 hp Big X 630 is the latest addition to Krone’s mid-range power bracket segment and ships with the new MaxFlow chopping drum and the standard VariQuick solution for conversing quickly from grass chute to corn conditioning application and vice versa.

The 630 mm wide, 660 mm diameter MaxFlow chopping drum was specially designed for the Big X 630’s engine output and is available with a choice of 20, 28 or 36 blades, making it ideal for use in all conditions. Krone also offers a biogas drum with 40 blades in the form of a special drum for short LOCs (2.5-15mm), as well as corn conditioner rollers that can be fitted in various combinations.

Krone’s ever popular disc conditioner is now also available for this model series, so customers can choose the corn conditioner that best meets their needs - whether they are producing biogas maize or shredder silage.

Among the ultra-convenient features of the Machine of the Year 2016 are StreamControl throw width adjustment and PowerSplit, a smart electronic engine output management system that automatically adapts the output to current harvest conditions. Overall, Krone now offers a choice of nine models in two series, making it one of the manufacturers with the biggest forage harvester portfolio in the market.
