Flail Type Forage Harvester
The flail forage harvester uses a modified Loftness heavy-duty flail mower to cut and propel the chopped material into a weigh basket. A 35 horsepower diesel engine provides the power to all of the hydraulic drive systems. A larger oil reservoir and active cooler are used to handle the cooling requirements of the hydraulic oil. Like all of our power units and swathers, the forage harvester has a hydrostatic transmission, power steering and parking brake. The weigh basket is over a cubic metre in volume and unloads via a hydraulically driven draper floor. The scale system has four precision load cells and a fully programmable scale head. The flail rotor has an adjustable air bag suspension mount. Cutting height is adjusted in half-inch increments using a full width ground roller.
