Krone Unwraps Big X Forage Harvesters

Krone Unwraps Big X Forage Harvesters

Bigger, more powerful and more "crop efficient," the Big X 1000 has settings for economy and full power

Krone North America is introducing three new models of forage harvesters, putting Krone at the top of the big and powerful list.

The models include the Big X 700, the Big X 850 and the Big X 1000 -- model numbers roughly corresponding to engine horsepower -- and each features Kron'e new VariStream crop flow design which uses a spring-loaded series of plates to alter the volume of the flow through the machine as volumes of harvested material change.

A streamlined forage-flow design and engines from 775 horsepower to 1,078 hp. make the Krone Big X forage harvesters the biggest in their class.

The Big X 1000 also has the operator option to run at an Eco-Power mode or X-Power mode, depending upon the load being encountered. In all three models, the new power plants allow harvesters with more power from a single engine that previous models equipped with two engines were able to accomplish.
