KRONE Big X 480 Forage Harvester

BiG X 480, 530, 580 and 630 – the compact precision forage harvesters from KRONE for outputs of 490 hp to 626 hp and maximum chopping quality and output as well as superior ease of use and operator comfort.

Key features:

  • OptiMaize brings full flexibility to all KRONE BiG X forage harvesters, allowing them to produce any type of cutting length forage producers call for. MaxFlow and biogas drums with different numbers of blades, combined with the matching KRONE tine conditioners, allow you to produce different chop lengths in the range of 4 to 30 mm. Thanks to the VariLOC system which provides for reduction of the cutting frequency, the BiG X manages to cover this wide range without conversion or exchange of the cutter drum.
  • If the priority is on the highest throughput, premium technology is required. With the BiG X, KRONE off ers a forage harvester which convinces by top cutting quality, highest throughput and maximum user comfort thanks to the direct crop flow and the numerous innovative details which meet the requirements of successful service providers and make the working day easier.
  • On a BiG X, it is also the intake system that has an infl uence on the quality of chop. The six intake rollers compress the chopping crops 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 cutting length manually or automatically.
  • Matching the drum dimensions to the harvester model and choosing the optimum number and shape of blades not only boosts the power of the BiG X but also makes the OptiMaize S, M, L, and XL more flexible to suit more applications. The wide range of drums available for BiG X deliver a top-quality chop in any conditions anywhere in the world – at top performance levels.
  • The MaxFlow chopping drums are specially designed for conditioning of high-quality silage. Harvesting wilted crops with unevenly formed swaths is a challenge for the chopping drum; therefore, its blade supports have a special shape which leaves more room under the blades. Larger ‘pockets’ and the spring-loaded drum floor result in extremely smooth running and high power reserves. So BiG X makes light work of temporary crop accumulations.
  • With its 40 blades, the KRONE biogas drum chops the crops very thoroughly. OptiMaize S achieves very short chop lengths which enable high throughputs both on the machine and in the fermenter, making BiG X a major factor in biogas plant productivity.
  • VariLOC is a gearbox in the pulley 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 50%. This makes a quick changeover between long or short chops possible. You can fulfil your customers' fluctuating demands without any conversion or upfront planning. In conjunction with the roller conditioner with 105/123 teeth (speed diff erential 30 or 40%) or with the disc conditioner, this technology turns your BiG X into a real all-round forage harvester that offers its owner and user maximum flexibility.
  • The KRONE OptiMAXX roller conditioners. Every single kernel must be cracked to achieve an optimal digestibility. These user demands are perfectly met by the new OptiMaxx 250 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.
  • VariQuick is the system that allows operators to converse the BiG X very quickly from maize to grass. The slide has made it possible to handle the grass duct and the corn conditioner as one unit by operating a manual pump that moves either unit into the crop flow. For long-term use in grass, the grain conditioner can be swivelled down and removed sideways.
  • VariStream comprises spring-loaded floors beneath the chopping drum and behind the discharge accelerator rotor. The system ensures blockage-free 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.
  • KRONE StreamControl. 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 discharge 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 by KRONE have neither deflection rolls 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 mowing unit 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, as a coarse chop is the last thing livestock farmers or biogas producers want. The unique collector principle 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.
  • Cutting-edge technology from MTU takes engine power and economy to a new dimension. Common Rail injection and optimal torque synchronization translate into smooth running, low fuel consumption, high efficiency and minimal maintenance. The innovative KRONE power management guarantees highest efficiency with maximum throughput.
  • The transversely mounted engine enables direct drive of the drive pump, the cutter drum, the discharge accelerator and the pumps from the header and intake via power belts. No power take-off gear is required. All components for crop fl ow are activated via belt coupling.
  • Driven hydrostatically with wheel motors, the BiG X enjoys 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.
  • Driving on narrow roads and working in constricted spaces are particularly demanding for the harvester and the operator. Therefore, BiG X features a compact build, hydrostatic drives and independent wheel suspension that make it agile enough to manage any corner and turn on tight headlands. With the matching tyres, its width remains under 3.00 m – perfect for narrow farm roads.
  • Long working days, sometimes even deep into the night, take a toll on the operator's endurance and concentration. This obviously requires excellent all-round visibility and full illumination at night, which is exactly what BiG X offers. A total tank volume of 1,450 litres of diesel reduce downtime for fuelling up and increase the efficiency in the field. Optimum access to all components ensures trouble-free service and maintenance.
  • The SilentSpace open-space cabin has been developed in accordance with state-of-the-art ergonomics. Providing generous space and an extra seat, it offers a fully air-conditioned and absolutely functional working place, where the operator feels at home and has full command of all functions and controls.
  • 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 crops and provide reliable Information in extremely difficult position.
  • The ISOBUS steering system guides the machine automatically along the preset way line without any operator interference. Further systems are available to measure and log the harvested weight by fi eld and moisture levels.
