Kuhn North America introduces the BV 10 and BV 100 Series shredders. These shredders are designed for a wide variety of orchard and vineyard crop operations. With a low profile, heavy-duty gearbox, redesigned hammer knives and counterknives, and a new roller, operators will have a shredding workhorse on their hands.
To help these shredders pass easily under low-hanging plants and trellises, the BV 10 and 100 series were designed with an especially low profile in mind. The hood opening is among the best in the industry and provides operators with a large clearance range to increase throughput of branches and prunings.
The heavy-duty gearboxes and new PowerQuad IV belt drive offer outstanding power transmission. A shaft transmits power from the main gearbox to the new PowerQuad IV rotor drive belts. These drive belts improve power transmission over previous models while using the same number of belts, and are designed for reliable service with minimal maintenance.
Redesigned hammer knives feature a curved back to reduce damage to the rotor if an obstacle is struck. These heavy knives will easily power through clippings and brush up to three inches in diameter. There are also an industry-leading three rows of counterknives inside the hood of each BV series to create fine clippings for quick decomposition.
The rear roller on the BV series shredders feature removable ends, allowing a bearing to be replaced without replacing the entire rotor. It also features multiple height adjustments that leave the optimal grass height in a variety of situations.
