When it comes to tines that actually engage the crop, KUHN leaves nothing to chance: top-quality raw material has been wound into four coils with long tine fingers, giving you exceptional reliability. A defined attachment system to the arms results in an unmatched design life of at least 180,000 cycles. This provides several hundred hours of work before tine replacement is necessary. Asymmetrical tine finger length means both fingers engage the crop equally for a more consistent pickup. The tine guards prevent accumulation of debris around the coils.
Asymmetrical Tine Length
The asymmetrical tine length with longer outer fingers has several advantage to bring the machine’s tedding quality to perfection. This allows the outer finger to touch the crop earlier compared to symmetrical tines. It also ensures more complete tedding, along borders and between the rotors, where the tines overlap more in this sensitive area. Contacting the crop sooner means that the actual working width of each rotor is expanded and as a result, the entire machine working width is expanded.
Two Rotor Designs
Choose between two rotor designs, depending on the windrow or swath width, or type of crop. The 7902 T GII features small-diameter rotors and is ideal for high-quality output. The small-diameter rotors ensure excellent tedding and are the key to fast drying, excellent ground adaptation and less impurities in the forage. Thanks to the steep pitch angle, the crop is fully turned over and well aerated for ultra-fast drying. The GF 7902 T GII tedder has eight rotors, each with five tine arms.
The GF 5202 THA, 7802 THA and 7802 T GII, featuring four to six rotors with seven tine arms each, are ideal for spreading three large swaths produced by a 10’ mower. The larger rotors excel at handling long and heavy crop.
Quick Adjustment of Tine Angle
Whether in long or short, wet or dry crop, or different cutting heights, the pitch angle is adjusted without tools near the wheel supports. Always remember a steep pitch angle will decrease drying time and increase the nutritional value of the forage.
Offset Border Tedding Along Field Edges
For clean, careful tedding next to fences or neighboring fields, GF 1002 T GII tedders are equipped with a border control system. On slopes, the border setting is particularly beneficial for controlling the direction of crop spread and obtaining an optimal spread pattern. On the GF 7802 T GII and 7902 T GII models, this setting is controlled hydraulically for absolute comfort. Simply activate a control valve and the machine is ready to work in border mode to the left or right.
