Maintenance


Alt Tag

Are your knives good enough?


The knives are regarded as the heart of the machine.

Over time, the knives will become dull. This is observed by longer cutting time and poorer cutting, and is fixed by sharpening the knives. After repeated sharpening, the knife may be worn out. Check height and shape by comparing the knife with our knife wear template.

Straw or frozen mass?


Making the forage rotate in the chopper is fundamental for optimal function. Straw or frozen grass may in some cases rotate poorly in older machines.

The remedy in these cases may be to to weld knobs to the carriers on the conveyor.
