Kverneland Taarup Mower Conditioners



The trailed mower conditioners are designed for mowing and conditioning natural and sown grass, as well as mixed grass by swathing or spreading out the conditioned crop. The Super–float independent suspension allows ground contours to be closely followed while operating at high speed.

The models featuring the Auto–Swather system (BX-conveyor with a hydraulic drive) provide an even swath formation in two passes. The mowers are equipped with flail and roller conditioners. The working width is from 2.8 to 4 m.

The Taarup TA 5090 Butterfly Type mounted mower conditioner consists of 3 sections, 3.2 m each. The Butterfly combination ensures the most efficient weight distribution, reducing tractor wear and providing excellent maneuverability. High flexibility of the balancing mechanism maintains constant horizontal position of the mower. If a section hits an obstruction, it alone pivots in its mounting to pass the obstruction. The ВХ-conveyor forms one large or two small swathes.

The 5090 Series Mower is noted for its unique patented suspension system of the rear sections. The low centre of gravity suspension maintains the stable horizontal position of the mower, even when an obstacle in the field is hit. Soil pressure is applied by 4 large suspension springs, which ensure smooth movement and a uniform cutting height.
