Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA More Diversity in Windrow Placement!

The FC 3561 TCD RA is ideal for operators making haylage/baleage, or custom operators looking for a mower conditioner also capable of merging in a single pass. The machine can be used solely as a mower conditioner with the windrow merger in the raised position for use in dry hay applications.

The KUHN FC 3561 TCD RA center-pivot trailed disc mower conditioner with windrow merger sets a new level of reliability and durability in the market. The trailed machine incorporates the heavy-duty lubed-for-life Optidisc® Elite cutterbar utilizing a through-bolted design. The ability to vary conditioning intensity to match harvesting windows is assured with the use of the 2-speed DigiDry® finger conditioner. Operators have the ability to lay the windrow out wide like a standard machine or merge the windrow to either side with the rear mounted foldable windrow merging system providing more diversity in windrow placement.

The Optidisc® Elite Cutterbar: A Clean and Consistent Cut

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Lubed-For-Life Optidisc® Elite Cutterbar

The Optidisc® Elite cutterbar provides a flat, streamlined profile so that soil and crop residue do not accumulate, and material flows smoothly, even in heavy, difficult crop conditions. Optidisc Elite cutterbars are designed and tested with a zero-oil change interval. The highly-polished gears and synthetic gear oil ensure that this system does not require any regular internal maintenance, eliminating the need for cutterbar oil changes throughout the life of the machine.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Differential Disc Spacing

The innovative design of the Optidisc Elite cutterbar offers exclusive differential disc spacing.

1- Less Distance for a Clean Cut - Narrower spacing at diverging discs provides greater knife overlap, which results in a clean cut, even when the grass is short or light.

2- More Distance for Easy Crop Passage - Wider spacing (2) at converging discs provides more space for the crop to pass. Cut crop is quickly carried away from the cutting area, greatly improving the cut quality.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA High-Lift Discs and Fast-Fit® Kit

The cutting discs and end cones provide high crop lift, allowing cut materials to quickly leave the cutterbar and enter the conditioner, especially in thick crop conditions.

The Fast-Fit® quick-release knife system allows an operator to rapidly change out cutting knives with the use of a simple tool, yet still retain optimum cut quality and knife life. With Fast-Fit, an operator can achieve up to 50% time savings over a standard system.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Protectadrive® Disc Bearing Stations

// Protectadrive® Safety: Every minute saved during the hay season is precious. Ultimate protection, from the externally removable Protectadrive disc bearing stations, provides maximum reliability and quick service. In the event of an impact between a disc and an obstacle, the shaft holding the disc can shear just above the bearing. This is thanks to its carefully dimensioned shear groove. As a result, the gear teeth are protected.

// Extra Rigidity Where it Counts: Disc bearing stations are attached by bolts that pass through the entire cutterbar. This is an exceptionally strong and secure attachment with no risk of mount being torn out of the cutterbar in case of shocks. The disc drive pinion is held precisely in place, all resulting in excellent reliability and reduced maintenance costs.

// Gear-to-Gear Power Transmission: Gear-to-gear power transmission, a staple of all KUHN disc mowers, allows for maximum power to be transferred through all gears in the cutterbar. Unlike other gear cutterbars, equal sized gears throughout reduces torque on the gear teeth and leads to unsurpassed reliability and longevity.

Adapt to a Variety of Conditions

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Torsion Bar Suspension System

The torsion bar suspension system provides exceptional flotation to precisely follow ground contours. The torsional resistance can be easily fine-tuned to match the header ground pressure to different field conditions and operating speeds. A built-in slotted linkage eliminates the need to run the hydraulics in the float position.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Adjustable Forming Shields

The adjustable forming shields allow the windrow width to be varied to match different harvest practices and weather conditions. Indicators allow you to precisely match the setting on both sides. When not in use the shields are easily removed and placed in the storage position on the tongue.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Rear Hood Adjustment

The rear hood can be set either for windrow formation or flipped over to engage fins for wide spreading. The hood can be angled up and down in the windrow position to form neater windrows. It can be easily flipped to the opposite side on wide spreading models. Both sides have tilt adjustability to either stand crop up for windier conditions or lay crop flat for sunnier conditions. Widespread fins standard on finger conditioner models and optional on roller models.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Gyrodine® Swivel Hitch

The heavy-duty Gyrodine® gearbox is designed to withstand the most severe pull-through force from the hitch to the machine. The swivel design allows turns in excess of 90° while keeping the PTO driveline straight. This design allows extremely tight turns for clean, square corners while minimizing PTO vibration and wear. The swivel hitch is available in either a drawbar or two-point hitch configuration.

Uniform Crop Conditioning

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA Windrow Mergers

The merger on the mower offers the operator more diversity in windrow placement. The wide merger conveyor allows the crop to be easily and gently transferred into the windrow. The merger conveyor belt can be angled and has individual conveyor lift abilities. No tools are needed for belt tensioning adjustments and the merger can be dismounted from the mower.

Kuhn FC 3561 TCD RA DigiDry® Finger Conditioner

The DigiDry® finger conditioner provides consistent drying of grass and legume crops in various conditions with little maintenance. Wide rotor, fingerstyle conditioning increase crop-on-crop rubbing to create openings in the waxy cuticle layer helping the stems dry at the same rate as the leaves. The built-in breakback feature protects against damage from rocks and other foreign materials.
