KUHN - ATHENOR 6070 (2003) - 1 star
Silage loader, straw blower, all-forage distributor and mixer wagon, with loading capacity of 6 m³
Both beater bars are driven by an hydraulically disengageable belt drive. This very versatile machine allows clamp
silage, hay or haylage distribution, mixing of high quantities of fibrous products to stimulate rumination, and regular
and constant straw blowing.
Machines with a capacity up to 4 m3 are well suited to these 3 functions, thanks to their single beater bar. But to do
the same with a bigger machine, the requested technical features may be fully contradictory. The versatility of the
ATHENOR 6070 is mainly possible, thanks to the patented, combined all-forage beater and hydraulically adjustable
This new system provides full control over the distribution flow, when feeding hay or haylage. The combination of the 2 beater bars equipped with blades and the regulating tines in the lower position ensure a very efficient cutting effect.
A quick and efficient feeding or mixing of clamp silage needs the product to moved in front of the beaters to avoid dead zones in front of the upper beater. By adjusting the regulating tines in the upper position, the product flow to the turbine is increased for efficient feeding, straw blowing and mixing. This machine makes it possible for the farmer to realize a TMR for his milking cows and to distribute fibrous products like haylage or hay to the young cows.
Point of view of the jury: the hydraulically disengageable belt drive is now widespread
