Integral Rotor Technology

The large diameter rotor has heavy-duty auger flighting integrated directly onto the outer sections of the v-shaped rotor. This system is called Integral Rotor Technology. This short-distance intake system ensures even feeding regardless of variations in the crop. With this system, even the heaviest of crops are force-fed through the short intake, resulting in higher speeds for faster bale output.

AutoLoad Function

The Kuhn RW 1610 can load and carry a second bale in the loading arm during wrapping. The C model, with integrated AutoLoad function has increased overall loading, wrapping capacity and efficiency. The patented AutoLoad function enables the operator to fully concentrate on the driving process, while the wrapping process is automatically started once the bale has been detected on the loading arm. Picking up a second bale with the loading arm, during the wrapping process for transport, is fully automated.

OptiCut 23

The OptiCut 23 cutting system is designed for unlimited intake capacity and excellent cutting quality.Due to the unique bi-lobe rotor and cam-shaped lobe, the OptiCut 23 allows silage to be guided and drawn to the knives in an early stage which improves flow and cutting performance and also helps prevent unwanted plugging. As a result of the redesigned intake unit the power requirement of the balers is decreased. On the OptiCut 23, each single knife is spring protected against damage from foreign objects.

Heavy-Duty Driveline

Kuhn uses a combination of synchronized gearboxes, drivelines and oversized chains designed for maximum life and limited maintenance. The driveline layout is simple, clean, and easy to service and maintain while minimizing the overall number of moving parts.

Power Density System

The Kuhn Power Density System, a single feeder fork design that combines two functions into one mechanism, proves that a well-engineered component can eliminate complexity. Kuhn’s exclusive Power Density system runs at twice the speed of the plunger allowing a minimum of one flake formed per plunger stroke. This system ensures consistently filled flakes and results in a heavy, square-edged bales with excellent density regardless of the windrow condition.
