Harvest windows for forage collection are often very short, especially in mountainous areas. This is why it is particularly important to wilt as much of the forage as quickly as possible. Working with a conditioner also pays dividends here. In order to distribute the weight as evenly as possible and to keep the individual machines as light as possible, Fendt offers a conditioner with rear three-point hitch in the shape of the Booster 285 DN. This is ideally combined with the Fendt Slicer 260 FP or FPS front-mounted mower.
With the Fendt Booster, you can produce well-protected forage with maximum efficiency. Thanks to the conditioner’s design, which resembles the pick-up and has a pick-up width of 1.82 m, the crop can be picked up carefully and is pre-distributed to best effect by the v-shaped counter comb. The interaction of the aggressive counter comb and checker plate opens the top layer of the leaf to allow water to escape and therefore improve the wilting process of the mowed forage. During the process, the 600 mm rotor diameter guarantees maximum forage throughout even for large forage volumes. The flexible tines prevent damage to the conditioner if struck by foreign objects, and reduce forage contamination. The tine conditioner for the threepoint hitch is not just fuel efficient but also very maintenance-friendly as it only has two grease nipples on the entire machine.
Easy to adjust
One the Fendt Booster, the raw forage can be delivered along the entire working width of the mower or in a narrow swath. The standard width distributer can be adjusted without tools. Benefit from forage conditioning made to measure by adjusting the conditioning intensity using 4 settings, thanks to 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 1000 rpm. This makes it the perfect partner for your tractor.
The slope stability of the Fendt Booster which results 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 and does not swing. The large-volume tyres ensure optimal road stability and smooth running. Safety also includes the modified super C tyres which are equipped as standard with a tine lock to protect the following machines and animals.
