- Increased fuel capacity allows operators to be more productive and stay in the field longer during the day.
- Larger fuel capacity increases uptime and increases time between fill ups.
PRODRIVE™ PLUS LARGE TIRES BOOST PERFORMANCE AND UPTIME IN SOFT CONDITIONS
- ProDrive is the industry-leading ground-drive propulsion.
- Largest tires in the industry, and optimized weight distribution, leads to maximum performance and uptime in soft soil conditions.
- The largest tires, with a diameter of 1067 mm (42 in.) and a width of 900 mm (35.4 in.), deliver in comparison to a 7000 Series tires, a 34 percent larger footprint, giving the 8000 Series increased traction as well as less ground compaction.
MAXIMIZE ANIMAL PERFORMANCE THROUGH FORAGE QUALITY
The unique Dura-Drum™ cutterhead design, together with the portfolio of cutterhead configurations, allows 8000 Series machine owners to perfectly specify their harvesters for meeting all operating demands. Three different cutterhead configurations with 10, 12, or 14 rows of knives, a full or half set of knives, and in conjunction with 1100 or 1200 cutterhead rpm provide an overall range of length of cut (LOC) from 3 mm (0.2 in.) up to 52 mm (2 in.). The 8000 Series Self-Propelled Forage Harvesters (SPFH) meets any producer requirements.
OPTIMAL DESIGN, OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE
The 8000 Series Self-Propelled Forage Harvester (SPFH) line was designed to position all crop-flow components to avoid any restrictions, and was also engineered so that the crop path produces minimum kinetic friction on the particles.
