With the JF GXS 4005 Kongskilde completes the top end of the well-known GXS range of disc mowers and disc mower with conditioner. The range now covers sizes from 2.4 m to 3.85 m and therefore offers a machine to every farm size and application.
The GXS 4005 mower follows the ground independently of the tractor due to the pendulum suspension and the unique JF Vari Float hydraulic suspension system. The Vari Float system allows the driver to adjust the ground pressure of the machine while working in the field. Adapting the suspension to the various ground conditions minimizes the risk of crop contamination.
The result is a higher quality when the grass is chopped or mixed in the diet feeder. Higher feed quality increases the milk yield. This means that all processes are optimized, which is one of Kongskilde's primary aims.
All the machines in the GXS range are equipped with the JF cutter bar system. The new Q+ disc with quick-change blade system has an optimized shape which secures a uniform crop flow under the toughest conditions.
The cutter bar is protected by guide shoes covering the whole width and integrated with the stone guards. This reduces the risk of damage to the gear box of the cutter bar and protects the plant "crown" by having a big “foot print” and ensures hereby a quick re-growth.
The power is transmitted through the first disc and distributed to all other discs through large dimensioned in-line gear wheels. This means that the gear wheels of the cutter bar are able to resist heavy load, which increases the efficiency and operational reliability, thereby reducing the overall operating costs.
Transport and safety
For transport the machine is moved to a position behind the tractor by using the hydraulic cylinder. This gives a low point of gravity during transport. The machine can be folded 90 degrees vertically, which reduces the overall length of the tractor and machine. This is beneficial when entering fields through narrow passages and crossways.
The hydraulic folding mechanism also acts as hydraulic stone release during mowing. This reduces the damages to the machine in case of collision and hereby reduced repair costs.
