AP Silage cutters – type NT

Series NT

The robust silage blockcutter in the NT series lends itself perfectly for use to wheel loaders, heavy telescopic handlers and in the three-point / lifting mast of heavier tractors. Block widths from 180 to 260 cm, the block depth is 106 cm and the block height is 102 cm. The capacity varies from 1,90 to 2,80 m³.

This very solid machine is equipped with heavy Kverneland tines ø 55 mm.
All types are available with tines as well with a closed bottom and are standardly delivered with hoses and quick couplings. All models with a closed bottom are equipped with a wear-resistant knife in 400 HB grade steel.
The cutting frame and the closed bottom are double-walled. This sandwich construction is provided with reinforcements so that the silage cutter is very “stiff” in the frame. Thanks to this stiff construction the cutting frame will not twist and the AP silage cutter requires only 2 cylinders. Therefore there is no need for a hydraulic flow divider.

Hydraulic push-off system (HAT)

The hydraulic push-off system makes the unloading of silage or corn blocks easier if the cutter, for whatever reason, has difficulty tipping. The push-off system is only available for the AP silage cutters with tines (shear grabs) en requires the use of an extra double functioning valve or electric control 2 functions (VS2).

Inlay in conjunction with hydraulic push-off system (HAIBT)

As supplement to the hydraulic push-off system a (removable) inlay can be added. This inlay can be drawn into the cutter or put away by the push-off system so the driver does not have to leave the cabine. The inlay is provided with hooks and the push-off system with catch hooks. Once the inlay is within the silage blockcutter the cutting frame can be closed. Due to this, spilling is reduced to a minimum.
