Harvest windows for forage collection are often very short, especially in mountainous areas. That's why it is particularly important to wilt as much of the forage as quickly as possible. Working with a conditioner also pays dividends here. To distribute the weight as evenly as possible and to keep the individual machines as light as possible, Fendt offers a conditioner with rear threepoint hitch in the shape of the Booster 285 DN. This is ideally combined with the Fendt Slicer 260 FP or FPS front-mounted mower.
Every minute counts
The Fendt Booster gives you carefully processing forage with maximum efficiency. The pick-up type design of the conditioner with a pick-up width of 1.82 m picks up the crop carefully, and optimally pre-distributes it through the v-shaped counter comb. The interaction of the aggressive counter comb and corrugated plate opens the top leaf to make it easier for water to escape, and ensures that the wilting process of the mown forage is improved. The 600 mm rotor diameter guarantees maximum forage throughput even in the case of large forage quantities. The flexible tines prevent damage to the conditioner due to stones, and reduce forage contamination. The tine conditioner for the three-point hitch is not only efficient and saves fuel, but is also very maintenance-friendly, as it only has two grease nipples on the entire machine.
Easy to adjust
The Fendt Booster delivers the raw forage along the entire working width of the mower or in a narrow swath. The standard width distributor can be adjusted without tools. Enjoy made to measure forage conditioning by adjusting the conditioning intensity over 4 settings, with the easy counter-comb adjustment. This means you save time making fine adjustments and benefit from increased operating comfort. The Fendt Booster has a power shift gearbox, and offers you the opportunity of switching the PTO speed between 540 rpm and 1,000 rpm. This makes it the perfect partner for your tractor.
The slope stability of the Fendt Booster which comes from the excellent weight distribution makes it the perfect partner in mountainous areas. The low traction point with automatic centring when lifting guarantees safety on slopes. Thanks to the integrated pendular brake, the conditioner always remains on track without swinging. The large-volume tyres ensure optimal road stability and smooth running. Safety also includes the modified super C tines which are equipped as standard with a tine lock to protect the following machines and animals.
