Ragley Estate,

Vicon at Grassland & Muck 2017

Vicon will be demonstrating the first of a new range of mower conditioners for the 2017 season at Grassland & Muck 2017. Called the Extra 700 series, this new range currently comprises two tractor-mounted models offering 3.2m and 3.6m working widths.

Badged Extra 732T and 736T, both units gain an all-new suspension system called QuattroLink. Derived from race car technology, QuattroLink uses four suspension arms located onto a fixed beam from which the mower bed is suspended. This enables the centrally mounted mower bed to float independent of the main frame, so it can respond quickly and accurately to changes in ground contour.

QuattroLink affords 700mm of vertical movement and also 30-degrees of transverse oscillation, while maintaining a constant ground pressure during work. This new system has been designed to provide increased mower bed stability at higher forward speeds, ensuring a clean cut with an even stubble height.

An additional benefit of QuattroLink suspension is a greater level of break-away protection, which also extends across the full width of cut and includes protection of the disc closest to the tractor. Any obstruction will cause the mower bed to lift backwards and upwards.

The Extra 736T is also available in Vario specification, which includes 400mm of hydraulic side-shift that creates an adjustable overlap to compensate for changing field conditions. Specification across the Extra 700 series includes Vicon’s three-bladed disc, a rear hood with spreading and swathing plates, semi-swing steel tine conditioner with conditioner plates that are adjustable at the front and rear, plus vertical folding for transport.

Vicon’s FastBale non-stop fixed chamber baler/wrapper will also be working, along with a new triple mo-co called the Extra 687N, equipped with nylon conditioning tines. A BW2600 round bale wrapper, equipped with the very latest Twin Film wrapping system will also be on display.
