KRONE Big X 1180 Forage Harvester

BiG X 680 ∙ 780 ∙ 880 · 1180, the XXL forage harvesters from KRONE for outputs of 687hp to 1156hp. They not only impress by their high efficiency and chop quality but also by high operator comfort and easy handling.

OptiMaize brings full flexibility to all KRONE BiG X harvesters, allowing them to produce any type of chop length livestock farmers and Biogas producers call for. MaxFlow and Biogas drums are available with various numbers of blades and combine with matching KRONE conditioners to deliver perfect 4-30 mm (0.2"-1.2") chops and the most intensive treatment. The BiG X offers this wide range of chops without operators having to swap or refit the chopping drum – simply by reducing the cutting frequency with the help of VariLOC. 

Its innovative technology makes the BIG X a benchmarker in terms of performance and quality. Chopping lengths can be set to individual requirements by adjusting the speeds of the intake rollers and using diff erent numbers of blades on the chopping drum. Highest throughputs are implemented by the spring-loaded fl oor underneath the drum and a spring-loaded accelerator backplate which guarantee a continuous crop flow. 

On a precision forage harvester it is also the intake system that has an influence on the quality of chop. The 6 intake rollers on BiG X compress the material consistently at a high pressure so that it is easier and more precisely to chop. The hydraulic drive of the intake system allows operators to choose between setting the LOC manually or automatically. 

Matching the drum dimensions to the forager model and choosing the optimum number of blades not only boosts machine power but also makes the forager more flexible to suit more applications. The wide range of OptiMaize drums that are available for BiG X deliver top-quality chops in versatile applications anywhere in the world. 

The KRONE Biogas drum with 40 or 48 blades chop the material very intensively. OptiMaize S achieves very short chops which enable high throughputs both on the machine and in the fermenter, making BiG X a major factor in biogas plant productivity. 

Key Features:

  • Every single kernel must be cracked to achieve an optimal digestibility. These user demands are perfectly met by the new OptiMaxx 250/305 roller conditioners with their slanted teeth, a new KRONE development.
  • The KRONE disc conditioner delivers perfect results at a low input power, which is attributed to the special V-form of the discs. This results in a large friction surface area and makes for an enormous throughput and optimally fractured leaves and stalks and thoroughly damaged kernels.
  • Forming an integral part of the pulley, KRONE VariLOC is a gearbox that alters the speed of the chopping drum. By simply changing the drum speed from 1250 to 800 rpm using a standard open-end wrench, you can increase the chopping drum’s LOC range by up to 53 %. This system allows operators to momentarily change from short to long chops and vice versa and meet different customer needs without a major changeover - this is the concept of OptiMaize. In conjunction with the roller conditioner with 105/123 teeth or with the disc conditioner, this technology turns the BiG X into a real all-round forage harvester that offers its owner and user maximum flexibility.
  • VariQuick is the system that allows operators to converse BiG X very quickly from maize to grass. A chain drive (electric option) moves the corn conditioner out of or into the crop flow. If the corn conditioner is not used for longer periods of time, you can lower it and remove it from the machine by pulling it out to the side. 
  • KRONE VariStream comprises a spring-loaded floor beneath the chopping drum and a spring-loaded back plate in the crop accelerator housing.The system ensures blockagefree and smooth operation, even in varying volumes of crop. The technology allows operators to utilise the forager to its limit and use less fuel per hour. 
  • The crop throw is controlled from the cab by adjusting the door in the backplate on the crop accelerator.This way, operators can adjust the throw quickly to the current filling situation. As the accelerator needs less power to cover a short distance, the operator can free up engine output and use it for chopping and higher throughputs. 
  • The multi-coupler system of the BiG X allows operators to couple headers fast, easy and dependably from the seat, reducing changeover times when preparing for road travel or different crops.This way, more time is spent on productive work. 
  • The camless EasyFlow 300 S and 380 S pick-ups have neither guide rollers nor cam tracks. Compared with conventional pick-ups, EasyFlow has up to 58 % fewer moving parts, which makes it impressively smooth running, low-wear and therefore inexpensive in service and maintenance. EasyFlow operates 30 % faster for cleaner gathering and increased productivity.
  • Based on the well-proven KRONE EasyCut cutterbar technology, the XDisc direct cutting system allows the BiG X to cut and chop whole crop silage in one operation. which features SmartCut cutting performance and quality and SafeCut impact damage protection. 
  • The variable-row EasyCollect header is a versatile unit that feeds the stalks lengthwise into the machine, which translates into an unsurpassed quality of chop. The unique collector principle from KRONE cuts labour costs and has proved its worth time and again the world over. 
  • KRONE adds new XCollect headers to the long-standing and well-proven EasyCollect series. The XCollect headers split cutting and feeding into two separate processes, responding to customer demands to deal with diverse harvest conditions around the world.
  • Advanced Common-Rail engine technology from Liebherr suggests superior outputs and fuel economy. The engines stand out for optimum torques, quiet running, superb fuel economy and high efficiencies.
  • The transversely mounted engine allows the chopping drum and the crop accelerator to take engine power directly off a powerbelt. The engine also drives the pumps for the intake rollers and the header and also the pump for the ground drive and the assemblies. The power flows through a power take-off gearbox which uses a multiplate clutch to engage the assemblies.
  • Wheel motors offer greater productivity and a higher level of automation and operator convenience. At the same time, this type of power train reduces maintenance and frees valuable space to fit a bigger and more powerful chopping assembly and move this further to the rear of the machine.
  • Its hydrostatic wheel drive, its independent wheel suspension and its compact build make BiG X a tremendously agile machine that gets into every corner and turns elegantly on tight headlands, saving turnaround times and increasing productivity. 
  • In the heat of harvest operators often work into the night. To ensure best visibility BiG X is equipped with a comprehensive light kit that turns night into day. Service and maintenance are made easy too thanks to wide opening side panels, an opening engine compartment cover, removable plastic mudguards and a ladder that swings out of the way to give easy access to all service points. 
  • A system of several tanks allows customers to specify the reservoirs on the machine to their needs – fuel, silage additive and water tanks can be added and configured in as many as seven different arrangements that meet individual needs around the world. 
  • It takes a comfortable working place to stay fit and alert during those long working days. The spacious Silent Space cab offers such an ideal environment. Providing generous space to the operator and a passenger, it provides a fully air-conditioning and an absolutely functional working place. The unique CabLift offers an unprecedented panoramic view from a height of up to 70 cm (2'4"). 
  • KRONE offers a range of different systems which help utilise our BiG X forage harvesters to their full potential and ease the strain on the operator. The electronic assist systems supply relevant data on the crop and provide reliable Information in extremely difficult position. 
  • The ISOBUS steering system guides the machine automatically along the preset way line. Further systems are available to measure and log the harvested weight by field and moisture levels.
