As a result you will save your time and labour.
OPTIMUM SILAGE QUALITY
Silage quality is vital for digestion, pressing for bales, biogas facilities. Challenger 2 has reached the perfect result for the problem of not chopping the maize grain, corncob, not grasping the maize grain by the way of +chop system developed by Cattlekit. You can make silage how you need thanks to adjustable chopping length unit which you can adjust easily yourself.
PERFECT ACCORDANCE OF BELTS AND PULLEYS
Pto driven gears on machine works perfectly. Power is transferred by the pulley and belts which can be easy for the farmers need of spare parts, maintance and repair. The pulleys are under guarantee for the quality and the strength after the some tests. In terms of stability and efficient work; pulley adjustments and belt setting angles are vital. This transmisson equipments is made and proceed on high precision CNC machines by the real professionals on his duty for not having any mistake.
The cutter knives on machine is covered with tungsten carbide. The material of alloy has high resistance for abrasion and heat which extend the durability. Sharpening with regular intervals the cutter knives is very important for reaching the ideal qualited silage and the top working performance. Sharpening unit on machine is designed for easy use of farmers and not giving any damage to machine. Farmers can sharp the knives easily by opening the automatic sharpener cover without any extra labour in few minutes.
Chopping unit developed by considering the length, thickness, hardness of the maize to chop perfectly. Drum knive reach the excellent chopper precision and speed by Cattlekit engineers in a long research efforts. Whatever the conditions are; Challenger 2 is duty for completing the mission in the best way and in the shortest time such as chopping the starting point firstly then independently chopping disregarding the rows.
All the design and development activities for maximizing the speed and amount of maize intake while chopping. Cutter knives are placed under the intaker drums which is the best for structure and installment. The cutter knives has 1,5 times longer life and durabilty after some studies and tests.
CONSIDERATION OF DETAILS
The hydraulic system used on Challanger 2 is powered by the hydraulic pump on the gear. You can control the chute for moving it left-right / up-down by this system in the tractor cabinet without need for going out. You can enjoy while using machine thanks to hydraulic control center.
3 POINT HITCH SYSTEM
Tractors have different structure as brand and model. Some parts of tractors may not fit for anothers. So we need to make some adjustments. Drawbar on Challenger 2 designed portable for not to have any handicap or problem. While installing the machine to the tractor, by moving the side arms; you will have any problem or trouble for balancing the machine and fitting the holes.
ADJUSTABLE WHEEL SYSTEM
Row independent maize chopper is a machine, heavier than 1000 kg. To carry all the weight on the arms of tractor can be a risk especially for small tractors. To carry the weight of the machine, an adjustable wheel system placed to the tractor. Thanks to this system the weight of machine can be share between the tractor and wheel, and the machine don’t encounter with the soil on the rough terrain.
MULTI WAY WORKING POSITIONS / FRONT-REAR-SIDE
