Kuhn FC3115D mower conditioner: Up and over

A bit late to the vertical fold party, the Kuhn FC3115D is much more than just a change in how the mower folds for transport - it has a completely new headstock, disc bed, suspension system. It is basically a completely new mower conditioner so we tracked one down in Co Cork to take a closer look

For nearly 20 years, Kuhn’s mounted mower conditioner was the swing behind FC Lift-Control range in widths of 2.4, 2.8m and 3.1m. While these have worked perfectly well, there is no denying that they are more cumbersome than their vertical fold competitors when it comes to swinging in a narrow gateway, particularly when used in conjunction with a frontmounted mower.
