Kverneland Group reveal 850 Pro series of bale shredders and choppers

Kverneland Group Ireland has recently introduced the new 850 Pro series shredders.

The new Taarup 853 and 856 pro models have seen a number of updates compared to the established 850 bale chopper range.

This new series features an extensive standard package including a wide angle pto for trouble-free operation at extreme angles and an integrated lighting kit.

To provide the correct flywheel speed for bedding and feeding, the new models are fitted with a two-speed gearbox.

At lower speeds, the flywheel ensures a metered flow of silage of hay for feeding, while at high speed a powerful blow for the most efficient distribution during bedding is ensured.

The gearbox is simply adjusted using a handle on the side of the machine.

Kverneland has also added a new drum design which is designed to handle a wide variety of materials.

An improved knife configuration ensures materials are cut and fed into the flywheel chamber evenly.

The drum is fitted with 14 blades as standard, but another 14 can be simply added.

The floor conveyor of the Kverneland Taarup 850 range consists of a hydraulically driven chain and slat floor conveyor with variable speed and reversing facility.

The floor conveyor runs on two wear strips made of special plastic material to reduce friction and increase chain life.

A rotating marker allows the operator to see the speed and direction of the floor conveyor from the tractor seat, while an enclosed lower tray ensures no spillage or loss of crop.

Further information on the full range of Kverneland straw choppers, including mounted and trailed models, is available from your local Kverneland dealer.
