The Krono 12m boom features full hydraulic sequential folding of the four wing sections.
This allows the boom to be operated at multiple spray widths as well as providing outer wing tilting. The boom can be also operated as a single sided unit.
(a) Self-leveling suspension system with optional slant cylinder helps the boom float over rough terrain. The optional slant cylinder can be used to adjust the boom level when traversing the side of a hill. (b) Each side features one long stroke hydraulic cylinder coupled with outer wing sliding rods to enable complete mechanical sequential folding. This clever system reduces the amount of hydraulic tractor remotes required to operate the boom. (c) When one side is folded the self levelling suspension is locked out. This avoids the open side from tilting downwards. (d) Optional hydraulic lift can also be fitted providing 900mm of travel.
Individual hydraulic fold can be used to tilt boom wings.
The outer wing features a break back / forward spring-loaded mechanism to prevent boom damage in case of a collision.
