The Krono 15m boom features full hydraulic sequential folding of the six wing sections.
This allows the boom to be operated at multiple spray widths as well as providing a very compact folded structure. The boom can be also operated as a single sided unit.
(a) Self-leveling suspension system with standard slant cylinder helps the boom float over rough terrain. The 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 and cables to enable complete mechanical sequential folding. This clever system reduces the number of hydraulic tractor remotes required to operate the boom. (c) When one side is folded the self-leveling suspension is locked out. This avoids the open side from tilting downwards. (d) Hydraulic boom lift allows taller crops to be sprayed.
Unique boom fold design. Cylinder extends rods to unfold boom wings individually, cable with spring mount provides some vertical wing suspension.
The outer wing features a break back / forward spring loaded mechanism to prevent boom damage in case of a collision.
