Kverneland 53100 MT Vario BX - 53100 MR Vario BX

Butterfly mower combination with BX belt solution, QuattroLink suspension concept and hydraulic adjustment of overlap and working width.

9.80 - 10.20m working width

SemiSwing steel tine or roller conditioner

The Swath Belt that Automatically Adjusts

The Kverneland BX is primed to maximise working capacity and utilise the full capacity of the 53100 without compromising on quality of work. Kverneland BX automatically does the job of adjusting belt speed to working width, for the same uniform swath width, regardless of position of mowing units. In combination with GEOMOW, that provides automatic GPS steered overlap control and constantly optimises on overlap and working width, this means maximum working capacity, excellent operator comfort and an even, uniform swath formation.

The Advantages

Features all the same advantages as the "standard" 53100 MT/MR Vario model. Additional advantages include:

  • Automatic belt speed adjustment
  • Adjustable belt height
  • Belt boost for headland operation
  • Autostop function for minimised fuel consumption
  • Versatile 4-in-1 solution

Highlights

Automatic Belt Speed Adjustment

Same Uniform Swath Formation...

Kverneland BX automatically adjusts belt speed, whenever a change is needed. If mowing units are sideshifted to adjust overlap, belt speed immediately adjusts, to compensate for the change in throwing distance needed. When increasing overlap for mowing around corners, belt speed is lowered.

...Even When Using Just One Belt 

In addition Kverneland BX also detects when a belt or mowing unit is raised, and immediately compensates to ensure crop stays within the intended swath width. Belt speed of the working belt is automatically reduced, to avoid crop “flying over” the centre swath.

Adjustable Belt Height

Shape the Swath As You Want

Working in heavy first cut crop, combined with a narrow pick-up width of the following machine, may cause challenges in getting the swath narrow enough. Kverneland BX offers the possibility of positioning the swath belt in different operating heights, to deliver the crop on top of the swath made by the front mower, to make a narrow and box shaped swath. Delivery height is set by lowering or raising the belt hydraulically on-the-go.

Belt Boost

Clean and Tidy Headlands

When the mowing units are activated for headland lift, an integrated belt boost automatically speeds up, to empty the belts before they are raised, leaving a clean and tidy headland. Furthermore the AutoStop is activated once belts are raised, automatically stopping them until mowing units are lowered again, keeping fuel consumption low.

Versatile Design

4-In-1 Solution

Versatility via four-in-one solution offered by the Kverneland 53100 BX, allowing one large swath, three single swaths, full width wide spreading, or using one belt only. The standard fitted swath plates are easily slided into position for the desired swath width. If conditions require wide spreading, the standard fitted FlipOver wide spreading vanes are activated in seconds.

QuattroLink Suspension

Racecar Technology Applied for Mower Conditioners

What makes the QuattroLink suspension unique? The mowing unit is pulled by four suspension arms fitted onto a fixed carrying arm that allows the mowing unit to float independently over the field, adjusting highly accurately and instantly to any changes in ground contours.

No Compromises on Flexibility

The mowing pattern is extremely flexible with a vertical working range of 700mm up and down and a transverse working range of 30°. The 4 arm suspension concept ensures constant ground pressure during working operations.

 

How You Will Benefit from QuattroLink

Like a race car you want better tracking, ability to go at faster speed and adjust instantly to changing field conditions when operating your mower conditioner. These are the main benefits you will experience when running the kverneland 3300 series and 53100 MT Vario. The four suspension arms provide the mowing unit with an exceptional flexibility in adapting instantly to demanding ground contours inviting for higher speed and more productivity.

Vario - Suspension Arm

Hydraulic Adjustment of Overlap

Kverneland 3336 MT Vario and 53100 MT Vario are fitted with hydraulic SideShift integrated into the carrying arm allowing each mowing units to move 400mm. To easily compensate for changing field conditions, the adjustable overlap is designed as a telescopic arm, directly into the suspension.

Ground Pressure Remains Constant

During mowing operation the carrying arm always remains even to the ground, giving the mowing unit the freedom to instantly compensate and float across uneven ground contours. The true benefit of the suspension concept is that even though overlap is changed, the chosen ground pressure remains the same.

GEOMOW

GEOMOW unlocks the full potential of the Kverneland 53100 MT Vario. The all-new Kverneland GEOMOW application delivers automatic adjustment of overlap between rear and front mowers and automatic headland lift via section control.

GEOMOW ensures the mower is always utilising its maximum capacity. GEOMOW constantly recognises the tractor’s driving path and hence always knows the position of the front mower, allowing it to instantly react and adjust overlap of the rear mowing units.

Full Width BreakBack

Our NonStop BreakBack system just got even better. With the new QuattroLink suspension this system now offers protection across the full working width of the mower, including the part closest to the tractor. There are no limiting factors on the inside part of the mower, giving the driver true peace of mind. When hitting an obstacle in the field, the mowing unit will instantly move backwards and up, and then return to the original position.
