Front and Rear Mounted Krone Mowers

The best quality balage is produced from crops that are mowed, wilted and baled as quickly as possible. In order to achieve this McCarthy Contracting operates front and rear mounted Krone Easycut mower conditioners. The mowers use the ‘Easycut Balance’ system which means that they use a centre pivot for even ground pressure. The mowers also have quick change blades for minimum down time. Both mowers have conditioning systems which reduce the time required for wilting the crop. The front and rear mower combination allows larger ground coverage in a shorter time. This is particularly useful for mowing larger areas.

Trailing Mowers

For our clients with smaller paddocks or paddocks that may have more limited access, McCarthy Contracting also operates a Krone 6.2m trailing mower conditioner. This mower has two 3.1m cutter bars. This gives good ground contouring and leaves the crop in two rows for better wilting and drying of the crop. We also operate a range of smaller trailing mowers.

All mowers operate area meters for accurate measuring of the area covered.
