KRONE – a successful tradition for more than 100 years
KRONE has been an established brand name in the farming world for more than a century. What started out as a small blacksmith shop has developed into a leading forage specialist. It’s the perfect mix of innovative power, market leader expertise and close customer relations that has made our company so successful for all these years. Our focus on quality and customer care has led to a large number of impressive and unique selling points.
It all begins with dialogue. KRONE engineers maintain a close relationship with our customers and distributors. Together they study markets, trends and needs.
Our designers use advanced computer technology to design new machines and simulate their in-field operation on computer screens. This way, they are able to begin with optimisation as early as in the design phase.
The next phase is building the prototype, a task that is entrusted to seasoned engineers, who assemble the new KRONE machine in close cooperation with the designers.
KRONE – we identify market trends ahead of time, maintain a close dialogue with our customers and spearhead new developments. Take our disc mowers: Right from the start, we focused on robust designs that deliver forage of an unusually high quality even in the most difficult conditions. As early as in 1982, we introduced the fully welded cutterbar and massive spur gears to drive the discs. After all, it is our philosophy to listen to our customers and implement their demands quickly and flexibly.
No computer simulation can replace in-field testing. That’s why we subject our new machines to extensive trials in every part of the world and in all types of conditions to ensure the numerous test logs reflect the full spectrum of machine applications.
Quality pays. To produce quality products, we check and log every possible detail. On top of that, we call in external inspectors to carry out unbiased machine checks.
All this hard work pays off – as confirmed by our customers all over the world. Our ongoing dialogue and quality assurance programmes pay off. After all, it is for a reason that KRONE has become a worldwide synonym for first-class forage technology – made in Germany.

EasyCut – uniquely KRONE
Fully welded cutterbar Rugged and absolutely leak-free Wedge-shaped profile Clean cutting No inner shoe Blockage-free operation Massive spur gears Efficient driveline
The KRONE EasyCut disc mowers provide cleanest and most accurate cuts. The enclosed and fully welded cutterbar operates dependably and leak-free for many years of hard work. Massive and oil-immersed spur gears ensure quiet and reliable running in permanent and peak-load operation. All EasyCut mowers feature wide floatation skids, which protect both the cutterbar and the turf. All knives feature the standard quick-change system.
The well-proven satellite gear system is a KRONE development that has proven well all over the world since 1989. Massive spur gears with up to 66 teeth give positive meshing and efficient transfer of power down to the last disc. The large-diameter gears rotate at lower speeds while a larger number of teeth mesh up with the neighbouring gears to provide quiet running, ultimate efficiency and maximum longevity. The auxiliary gears are arranged in a forward position and drive one disc each, hence dealing with only minimum loading. As the discs mount in a very forward position, the blades overlap generously to achieve absolutely perfect cuts.
Straightforward: Some of the gears just beneath the discs are mounted excentrically in the housing. These are removed from above complete with their bearings whereas the large gears on the main drive system are removed from the side.
The wedge-shaped cutterbar gives EasyCut the edge for better cuts – short in pastures and slightly longer in long-stemmed field crops. The wedge-shaped design provides a greater choice of settings and more options to deal with difficult conditions. As another KRONE advantage, the massive spur gears run in double bearings, which in turn are spaced wide apart to withstand high and permanent loading. The hardened discs spin in a massive and thick-walled mower bed, which offers full protection from any damage – for complete peace of mind.
Rugged and absolutely leak-free: KRONE cutterbars are fully welded by advanced robot and CNC systems to meet the most exacting demands and quality standards. After all, the cutterbar is the heart of every disc mower.
No inner shoe: The cutterbar is powered via a right-angle gearbox, which is arranged immediately behind the inner top hat, a design that ensures blockage-free operation on the headland and in awkwardly shaped fields.
Uniform speeds: The direct drive system, which relies on driveshafts and gearings, provides positive drive in heavy crop and at wide working widths. 1,000 rpm gearboxes are available as optional extras to suit a 1,000 rpm pto.
EasyCut guarantees top-quality cuts
Standard quick-change blade system The blade holders can be individually exchanged For blade protection they can rotate 360° Extra wide and hardened flotation skids
The wedge-shaped EasyCut cutterbar was developed in decades of mower manufacturing. The success of all KRONE disc mowers is based on their perfect performance, unmatched longevity and a host of unique selling points. EasyCut mowers deliver to customers needs. Take the quick-change blade system, which saves time and costs.
Easy float: Made from hardened steel, the extra wide skids reduce the ground pressure, protecting both the cutterbar and the turf. They are bolted to the mower bed for easy replacement.
High-cutting skids: Depending on set-up, these skids increase the cutting height by 30 mm or 50 mm and present a good option where 80 mm and longer stubble is required.
Optimum protection: All EasyCut disc mowers feature impact stops on their leading edges. Welded between the skids, they protect the cutterbar from damage while their special design enhances the overall cut.
At the heart of high-quality forage is a perfect and clean cut. A mower is to deliver cleanest cuts even in difficult conditions, such as in lodged crops or on slopes. We have optimised our cutterbars in many years of field operation and scientific research. And proudly present these easy-pulling KRONE EasyCut disc mowers, featuring wedge-shaped cutterbars, quickchange blades and crossed disc/blades set-ups to ensure blockage-free operation.
Unlimited spinning: The knives are free to spin through 360°. They are hard-wearing and self-cleaning, well protected and will not foul with the knives on the neighbouring discs.
Excellent cut: 112 mm knives mount on their individual discs in alternate arrangements and give generous overlapping. Made from high-quality steel, they guarantee a long service life.
Worn blades attachment pins and wear parts are replaced in pairs. The pins may be substituted with bolts upon request.
At the heart of high-quality forage is a perfect and clean cut, which in turn is dependent on the mower design and its suspension and guidance system. Developed in decades of disc mower manufacturing, the KRONE EasyCut centre-of-gravity suspension provides an absolutely uniform ground pressure across the entire working width.
Uniform ground pressure across the entire work width No side thrust Extremely light pulling Large pivot range Perfect ground hugging Optimum guidance Cleanest cuts
Modulating the ground pressure: Adjustable coil springs offer a large setting range to provide quick and perfect adaptation to all conditions whilst being easy to handle.
Beefy jib: The jib suspends and guides the mower in its centre of gravity. Its special design allows the unit to pivot through a large range. The hitch pin is fitted in a moving ball.
Spreading the load: The parallelogram linkage absorbs the lateral forces and guides the unit in direction of travel. At the same time, it helps reduce the load on the jib and the centre-of-gravity suspension system.

Reduced side-pulling forces and reduced ground pressure are the immediate effects of EasyCut Balance, which unmistakably reveal the benefits of this KRONE centre-ofgravity suspension system. In March 2006, a German agricultural magazine published a test that compared two suspension systems - side suspension (KRONE AM 283 CV) and centre-of-gravity suspension (KRONE EasyCut Balance 280 CV). The findings were that the central suspension concept, i.e. in the centre of gravity, is clearly superior to a side suspension concept. Measurably less side thrust also suggests a reduced ground pressure in the field.

These machines stand out for an extremely low power input requirement, maximum stability as well as superior levels of specification and operator comfort. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are geared up for the job.
Cantilevered guard frame Efficient direct drive system relies on shaft and gearboxes Fully welded and wedgeshaped cutterbar
Strong and straightforward design: The sturdy headstock withstands the highest stresses and features a height-adjustable top link pin and a storage facility to accommodate the driveshaft on the parked machine.
Optimal attachment: EasyCut mowers feature reversible Cat. II or Cat II and III link arm pins, depending on model. These allow mower attachment to an offset position for full exploitation of the entire cutterbar width.
A unique KRONE design: This impact damage protection system offers two-fold protection – both to the total unit and to the cutterbar and its discs.
Buying a KRONE disc mower means buying experience and expertise. KRONE is aware of farmers’ needs and delivers the technology that enables them to maximise their profits – EasyCut 280 and 320. These models boast a host of innovative features such as the EasyCut Balance centre-of-gravity suspension, a unique impact damage protection system, an efficient cutterbar drive system that relies on driveshafts, a fully welded and wedge-shaped cutterbar as well as quick-change blades. KRONE listens and delivers.
Perfect: As the impact protection system trips, the mower swings to the rear and lifts the 'cutting edge' out of work to glide over the obstacle – a system that provides maximum protection, in particular in rocky terrain.
Dependable: The KRONE impact protection system relies on an adjustable coil spring, which responds instantly and reliably. The spring pressure, i.e. the tripping force, is set steplessly to match the current conditions.
Long serving: The driveshaft boasts overrunning and friction clutches between the main gearbox and the mower to provide maximum protection to the cutterbar, the universal joints as well as the tractor’s pto.
KRONE is committed to enhance mower efficiency in any respect. Clean cuts, low input requirements and rugged stability are only a few of many purchase criteria that justify the investment in a KRONE disc mower. At home and abroad, KRONE disc mowers perform successfully in a wide variety of conditions. New insights and in-field experience are constantly implemented into the EasyCut production processes to safeguard your success.
Smooth crop flow: All KRONE disc mowers without conditioner feature a cantilevered guard frame that makes for an unobstructed crop flow and uniform swath formation.
Easy to maintain: The front section of the guard folds up for easy cleaning and blades replacement – a compact design that offers superb accessibility.
Pivoting through a wide angle: Their Z-type arms give the mowers a large vertical travel (29° up, 20° down) – ideal for bank and verge mowing.
Continued performance at high output levels requires not only a powerful machine but also ease of operation. With this in mind, KRONE specifies its EasyCut 280 and 320 disc mowers with single-acting rams that lift and lower the units on the headland and fold them into transport position. The driveshaft is protected by a stop to restrict lift height and the angle of articulation of the universal joints. At the same time, headland turns are easier thanks to a generous ground clearance. The three-point mounted EasyCut mowers do not require the link arms to raise when running over swaths.
Useful: Only one single-acting spool is required to swing the rear-mounted KRONE EasyCut 280 and 320 mowers from work position to headland or transport position and vice versa.
Safe road transport: The arm’s low pivot point on the headstock brings down transport height and increases the ground clearance. So, don’t worry when travelling underneath trees, bridges and overhangs.
Compact design: The special arm design and its low pivoting point combined with the cutterbar gearbox position behind the inner top provide an extremely narrow transport width and superb driver comfort.
Technology that delivers
We listen to our customers and strive to optimise our machines to meet user demands for wider work widths. EasyCut 360 and 400 offer 3.60 m and 4.00 m working widths to deliver
Low input requirement EasyCut Balance centre-of-gravity suspension Hydraulic impact damage protection Light weight
impressive workrates. At the same time, they boast a low power input requirement while producing an excellent quality of work and being extremely easy to handle.
Excellent value for money
A thought-through system: The 3.60 m and 4.00 m EasyCut 360 and 400 mowers swing to the rear during road transport, a position that allows easy tractor passage through low gates.
Hydraulic conversion from transport to work and vice versa: A double acting ram moves the mower to the desired position. Operation is straightforward and convenient from the cab via a double acting spool. Their low parking height allows these mowers to move into a transport position that provides a higher ground clearance.
KRONE EasyCut 360 and 400 are mounted mowers that offer wide work widths and therefore cost-effective concepts for added efficiency. They perform equally well in forage harvesting and field extensification, where they spread or swath the crop, depending on the overall design and sense of discs rotation. Features include the EasyCut Balance centre-of-gravity suspension system for superior balance and perfect cuts and the hydraulic impact damage protection system, which offers two-fold protection in that the machine breaks back to the rear and lifts out of work when hitting an obstacle.
Hydraulic impact protection: The double acting ram that folds the unit into transport and work position also serves as impact damage protection system to give these mowers the best protection they can possibly get.
Comfortable: A hydraulic ram lifts the machine on the headland. Linked to the ram that swings the unit in and out, it also gives impact damage protection, as it instantly lifts out the mower when the break-back system trips.
Flexible: The EasyCut 360 and 400 models feature central top hats and form two swaths to avoid tractor wheels running on the crop. There is the option of replacing the central top hats by discs to use the mower in wide spreading applications.

Mechanical 600 rpm and 900 rpm gearbox Steplessly adjustable baffle plate Massive 640 mm tine rotor Adjustable wide-distributing hood 110° angle reduces transport height and enhances driver comfort Pivoting V-type steel tines
conditioner with V-type steel tines evenly conditions the crop across the full working width to speed up wilting, reduce field traffic and produce top-quality forage.
Two in one: Cutterbar and conditioner share the same gearbox, which also integrates the two-speed mechanical CV conditioner gearbox (600 rpm and 900 rpm).
Full-width conditioning: The CV steel-tine conditioner covers the entire work width from the inner to the outer hat to provide absolutely uniform conditioning across the entire working width.
V-type pivoting steel tines and a steplessly adjustable baffle plate provide uniform crop treatment, reduce machine wear and optimise adaptation to crop conditions.
The V-type steel tines in combination with the baffle plate condition the crop at optimal intensity and without damaging the crop structure. Operators can set the swath width to tractor track width and tyre size and avoid tractor wheels running on the cut forage. This option offers great benefits on boggy terrain, where the mat is at risk of getting caked to the ground.
Stepless baffle plate adjustment: This crank provides convenient control of tine / baffle plate clearance and hence conditioning intensity. The narrower the clearance, the more intensive the conditioning.
High efficiency for high-quality forage: For high capacity, continuous crop flow and superior conditioning, the conditioner rotor boasts a 64 cm diameter for truly high performance.
Swathing wide and narrow: All EasyCut CV conditioner mowers feature outer guide plates, which swing in and out of position to adjust swath width to requirement.
Wide spreading or narrow swathing – as required
Scientific research has shown that wide spreading significantly enhances the fermentation process and the quality of feed. Accordingly, the widedistributing hood not only spreads the crop across a wide area, it also produces light and fluffy swaths that eliminate one tedding pass at least and lead to higher milk production whilst reducing the requirement for feed additives.
Full-width conditioning: Specified with V-type steel tines and baffle plate, the conditioner spans the entire work width – from the left to the right top hat. The goal is a uniform crop flow across the entire work width and best conditioning results. Optional guide plates are available for wide spreading and even faster conditioning.
Full flexibility: The optional guide plates that are fitted for wide spreading feature a pin/hole setting system to adjust to requirement. Choose between narrow swathing in wet and boggy terrain and wide spreading, if fast wilting is the priority.
The conditioners on the three-point mounted EasyCut CV and CRi mowers lead to a higher machine weight. Therefore, to get ready for transport these models swing into a 110° position behind the tractor, which shifts their weight to middle of the tractor axle and distributes it more evenly to both link arms to give the tractor a better ride when travelling at speed, through bends and on the slope. Moreover, this transport position offers the operator an unobstructed rear view from the right mirror.
Quick and easy: Upon arrival on the headland, the machine is lifted out of work by two single-acting rams. The tractor link arms do not move.
Transport/work changes: A double-acting ram folds the machine to the 110° transport position and actively lowers it back into work.
Low transport height: Thanks to its low pivot point on the headstock, the Z-type arm is able to fold even a 3.14 mm EasyCut model sideways into the vertical transport position.
EasyCut 280 CRi-Q
Roller conditioner mower puts firm grip on crops
CRi – the ideal conditioner for Lucerne 25 cm diameter rotor for smooth crop flow Polyurethane coating for long service life Separate roller drive for high throughputs Chevron profiled rollers for a firm grip on the crop
Delicate and broad-leaved crops as leguminosae are best conditioned by the interlocking KRONE CRi roller conditioner, which features two chevron profiled rotors. This conditioner is typically operated in Lucerne, where it ensures gentle treatment of the delicate leaves whilst crimping the stems to ensure faster and more uniform wilting.
25 cm Ø
Full-width conditioning: The full-width CRi rollers ensure uniform conditioning across the entire work width. Thanks to stepless adjustment of roller clearance and pressure, the system easily adjusts to the current crop yield and variety. The polyurethane coating gives lasting resistance to abrasion and wear.
250 mm diameter: The massive CRi rollers ensure smooth and unobstructed crop flow whilst requiring only a low power input.
Leguminosae and herbs require a different type of conditioning than crops that are predominantly grass. Providing gentle treatment to leafy crops, the CRi roller conditioner leads to less fragmentation than a tined rotor, leaving the delicate leaves intact that are so rich in valuable protein to safeguard the value of farm-grown feedstuff. Spreading the crops wide, the system also makes for faster wilting. This optional CRi conditioner version complements the KRONE mower range to meet all farming needs.
Firm grip on crops: The large-diameter chevron profiled conditioner rollers interlock to crimp, rub and crush the crop at great intensity.
Positive drive: The roller conditioner system boasts a direct and slip-free geardriven drive system. The bottom roller drive is integrated in the cutterbar gearbox behind the inner top hat.
Two rollers, two drives: The top roller, too, is actively driven by a separate gearbox on the right end of the cutterbar and is synchronised by the bottom roller.

Stripping the new front-mounted KRONE EasyCut 28 M mower off its flexible guards reveals that it, too, features the wedge-shaped and fully welded cutterbar, which suspends behind the hats – an ideal design to ensure uniform crop flow. Quick-change blades are standard specification. The foldable extensions bring transport width down to narrow 2.57 metres for easy travel on narrow lanes.
Two top hats for mountain swathing: Two top hats out on the cutterbar ends feed the crop to the middle of the machine for central swathing and ensure a uniform crop flow in slope operation.
Successful forage harvesting in mountain fields not only requires skilled operators but also bespoke systems. KRONE EasyCut 28 M is the specialist mower that caters for operations on steep and undulating ground. The front-mounted mower features the KRONE pushing suspension system, which gives EasyCut 28 M generous vertical travel to follow every ground contour. The discs and hats spin inwards to the middle of the machine, with the outer hats also providing feeding functions to continuously transfer the crop to the rear for swathing.
Special conditions require special solutions: EasyCut 28 M features special guide plates and a flexible guard in the middle of the unit. This specification is the secret behind the machine’s ability to form uniform swaths across steep slopes.
Constant-velocity and high-power driveline: Power flows through a direct driveline of pto shafts and gears, which transfers the tractor’s pto power efficiently and without frictional losses to the cutterbar.
Standard EasyCut Balance: This standard specification combined with a large 30 cm vertical travel on either machine end guarantees clean cuts in undulating terrain and leaves an undamaged turf.

The secret of perfect swaths – driven top hats
The front-mounted KRONE EasyCut 28 P and 32 P disc mowers feature two or four top hats, which mount behind the discs on either end of the cutterbar. Driven from within the cutterbar, these provide a continuous crop flow to the centre of the machine so that the tractor wheels will not run on the crop but next to the swath for the harvester to easily
Massive spur gears
pick up the material without losses.
Perfect cuts, smooth running: All drive components are oil-immersed, with massive spur gears operating in the main gearbox for smooth running and an efficient power transfer. The smaller auxiliary spur gears drive only one disc each. The gears that drive the top hats are powered by the spur gears in the main gearbox.
Direct drive system: The front-mounted EasyCut 28 P / 32 P mowers feature direct drives, where the power flows down four belts to a right-angle gearbox and on through the top hat to the discs. The overrunning clutch is integrated in the driveshaft as a standard.
Front-mounted KRONE disc mowers have proven well both in solo operation and in combination with rearmounted units. More than that, they also form a perfect team with the forage wagon for daily harvests of fresh forage. Presenting light and luffy swaths between the tractor wheels, EasyCut 28 P and 32 P produce uncontaminated forage that is picked up without losses. Requiring only little input power, the front-mounted KRONE disc mowers present an interesting option to farmers who rely on a forage wagon based system.
Efficiency to match: One single spring automatically tensions four belts. The lowmaintenance and positive-drive system is a further contribution to perfect cuts.
Smoothest crop flow: All discs on EasyCut 28 P and 32 P spin inwards to continuously feed the material to the centre of the machine for swathing.

KRONE mower combinations tick all boxes – wide working widths, an enormous efficiency, light weight, low input requirement for this class and suited for the existing tractor. While the front-mounted mower eliminates tractor wheelings in standing crops the overall setup allows mowing in up and down operation. The side wings fold up within seconds for swift moves from one field to the next.
Patented suspension balancing system: This patented system distributes the ground pressure evenly on both mowers to guarantee cleanest cuts also in rough terrain.
The driveline: Mounted centrally on the main frame, the main gearbox sends the tractor power down straight drivelines, which feature integral friction clutches and overrunning clutches to protect mower and tractor from overload. Required pto speed is 1,000 rpm.
Generous overlapping: Operating in combination with EasyCut 32, 32 CV or 32 CRi, KRONE rear-mounted mowers provide generous overlapping to ensure no stripes are missed. A hydraulic ram is available for the tractor link arms to offset the mowers in steep hill operations.
Impact damage protection is the standard
Safety is another important area of excellence. For example, EasyCut 9140 pivots through a 1.40 m arc as the entire mower rather than just the cutterbar breaks back upon impact. Once the obstacle is passed, the unit returns automatically into its working position.
Adjust to conditions: These mowers feature a coil spring that sets the tripping force of the impact damage protection system so this triggers within seconds upon impact.
Exemplary: This uncluttered operator box controls transport or work position changes as well as separate or joint lift/lower of the rear units. In addition, it controls the respective solenoid valves.
Top-quality forage: The full-width and high-performance conditioner features pivoting V-type steel tines and steplessly adjustable baffle plates. Steel tines are extremely hard-wearing and lasting.
KRONE mower combinations are finely-tuned and scientifically thought through to offer operators the specification and comfort they deserve. For example, they provide the flexibility to cut awkward areas with one, two or three mowers. Like all CV conditioner mowers, the EasyCut 9140 CV combination features a 600/1,000 rpm mechanical gearbox to vary conditioner rotor speed. Optional guide plates are available to allow wide spreading and faster wilting. KRONE mower combinations are specialist machines that are committed to quality and delivery.
One, two or three mowers — any combination will go: “Idle“ units remain in ’headland position’ until the wedge or awkwardly shaped plot is cut.
Compact mobility: A narrow 3.00 m transport width and less than a 4.00 m transport height make for safe travel on busy public roads. The operator enjoys full visibility while close tractor attachment allows travelling at swift speeds.
Road safety: The machines feature large warning panels and lighting kits as standard specification for safe travel on public roads and lanes. No way to not see this combination.

These options include the hydraulic cross conveyors, which feed the crop to the middle of the machine. KRONE delivers to farmers’ needs.

Firm grip on the crop: Nothing is left behind when the hydraulic cross conveyors start moving. These wide belts feature welded slats to feed huge masses of material in a smooth and continued flow to the centre of the machine.
Powerful hydromotors and infinitely variable conveyor speeds allow setting swath widths to the requirement of the following harvester. The motor automatically shuts off as the belts lift out and back on when they lower back into work.
Separate hydraulic system: Oil supply to the cross conveyor comes from a separate oil reservoir, which gives independence from the tractor’s hydraulic system. An oil cooler protects the system from overheating.
Cross conveyors boost efficiency. This specification is particularly beneficial in operations that do without swathing, turning and tedding. Feeding the crop to the centre of the machine for swathing, the belts have proven equally well in hay and wet silage, where they enable easy pickup by the following harvester. A triple mower system that uses only one cross conveyor in up-and-down operation will produce four swaths from a total working width of 17.40 m. These four swaths total up to 11.50 m and are ideal for further wilting and swathing by a central four-rotor swather in one pass.
Nothing is left behind: CV mower conditioners that are specified with cross conveyors feature solid V-type steel tines and a steel tray underneath the rotor, which collects every single haulm.
Operator box: The uncluttered operator box controls mower and conveyor lift/lower functions as well as conveyor speeds, for which the system relies on a potentiometer.
Great flexibility: If the priority is spreading rather than swathing, simply swing the two conveyors out of the crop flow – hydraulically and conveniently from the tractor seat. Wide spreading leads to faster and more uniform wilting.
