Better efficiency is the driving factor in several new developments within Kuhn Farm Machinery’s Master and Multi-Leader plough ranges.

The Multi-Master L extends that mounted plough range and will sit between the Master 153 and 183 models. Available with four, five or six bodies, there are both in-furrow and on-land formats suitable for tractors from 200 to 300 hp. On-land models can be set up to also work in-furrow.

A new working width adjustment system allows furrow width to be set at 35, 40, 45 or 50 cm without removing any bolts.

The company's patented Pro Set system allows tool-free adjustment of levelling, offset, depth and skimmers. As well as saving time, the ability to quickly and simply maintain optimum configuration of the machine according to furrow width and conditions can also reduce fuel consumption and wear on the plough.

Also new on the Multi-Master L is an integrated adjustable press arm that enables simultaneous furrow pressing to conserve moisture and create optimum seedbed conditions. With a reinforced anchor, this is designed for use with the heaviest rollers on the market and is adjustable either mechanically or, optionally, hydraulically from the tractor cab.

The press arm is designed to allow ploughing up to the edge of the field and is suitably compact in transport to fit within the dimensions of the plough.

As with other ploughs in the Master range, the Multi-Master L is available with traction bolt or non-stop hydraulic safety. The optional Opti-Drive headstock suspension system provides additional protection of both plough and tractor when in work or in transport.

The Multi-Leader XT has been added to Kuhn’s semi-mounted single-wheel plough range. Available in the UK with seven or eight bodies, this heavy-duty plough is suitable for tractors up to 400 hp.

Both in-furrow and on-land versions of the plough are available, with the on-land version also able to be set up to work in-furrow.

A new draw line correction system optimises traction, minimises wear on the plough and helps save fuel. As with the Multi-Master L, they benefit from tool-free adjustments.

Offset adjustment capability on the XT allows the on-land version of this plough to work effectively with large tractors, up to 5.4m wide, which includes dual wheel set-ups and tracked machines. They can also be used with a press arm and both traction bolt and non-stop hydraulic safety systems are available.
