The new Slicer FQ front mower is now available as a powerful addition to the Slicer product range. Perfectly adapted to the needs of medium to large dairy farms, contractors and biogas farms, the Slicer FQs offer a working width of 3.10 m (Germany) and 3.60 m respectively, as well as a choice of roller or tine conditioner. Extremely flexible, the Fendt Slicer FQ can be used solo, with mower combinations or with a fitted rear mowing unit. Lateral shift, 3D ground adjustment and a number of other clever features round off this machine.
The Slicer FQ front mowing unit is equipped with a lateral shift of around +/-20 cm to the right and left as standard, to guarantee a particularly clean cut. Using the lateral shift to compensate for drift, you can prevent losses effectively even on slopes. And when cornering, the lateral shift of the FQ prevents skidmarks when used in a mower combination. The hydraulically operated lateral shift feature is an optional extra on Slicer FQ models.
3D ground adjustment and freedom of movement
Powered by spurgears, the front mower has a drawn three-dimensional ground adjustment device, which overlays both across and lengthwise for perfect ground adjustment and a perfect cut. It delivers a clean cut every time, even over cropped terrain.
Depending on whether the cutterbed is moving up or down along the ground contour, the mower tilt is also automatically moves from -6 to +15 ° – precisely in synch with the up and down movement of the mower. The advantage of this is a constant cutting height, giving the highest quality forage – even under difficult conditions. The freedom of movement on the Fendt Slicer FQ is also enormous: with a cross-swing angle of +/-13° and a vertical play of around 750 mm, the FQ is true flexibility at its best.
The Slicer FQ can be equipped with a conditioner as an optional extra. For perfectly compacted, premium forage, there is a tine and roller conditioner option. Both come with direct power transmission through overlying transmission shafts – including overload protection. This guarantees the highest level of efficiency. To respond quickly to crop and weather conditions, the intensity of the tine conditioner can be easily adjusted in 4 stages by means of a counter-comb. The intensity on the roller conditioner is continuous with the pre-load spring of the upper roller. The swath width and distance between the tractor front wheel and the swath guide plate can be adjusted continuously.
Because you can fit it straight to the front linkage, the centre of gravity is close to the tractor – which lowers the weight to the front axle. 3-way coupling is not necessary. For tractors without EHR you can drive the Slicer FQ in float mode, using the support chains and with the lower links at a protected adjustment height (750 mm). The draw frame above the mower unit further increases the freedom of movement. To park, just put the retractable adjustment lever parking lock into its parking position.
The hydropneumatic relief using the TurboLift System is a standard feature on the Slicer FQ. The continuous setting can be done completely without tools. This means that the footprint pressure is always perfectly adapted to the conditions at the time. Even wet paths can be mowed perfectly without damaging the sward or getting dirt in the forage.
