  • Contouring control independent of the running gear
  • Compact on the road and wide in the field
  • The manual working height control
  • Contouring control independent of the running gear


In road travel, the KWT 1600 and KWT 2000 impress with a narrow transport width of less than 3 m whereas in work they offer a stunning work width of 15.27 m to 19.60 m. The machine also stands out for easy handling and functionality during changeovers, as automatic sequence control reduces driver effort and increases daily outputs.

Safe travel on the road

High-reflective, single-piece side guards combine with effective lighting to increase road safety at night when entering roads or crossing traffic junctions.

The hydraulic lift

The rotors are lifted hydraulically by a lifting linkage for transportation or at headland turns with an impressive lift-out height.

The hydraulic top link

The hydraulic top link consistently maintains the set work depth. Its task is to tilt the individual sections and the rotors forward by 90° into the transport position.

Ground contouring

Double joints on the frame and elongated holes on the lower lift arms ensure the machine follows contours flexibly and unrestricted by the transport chassis – a design that ensures clean work also in undulating fields.

The forced steering system

The caster-steer KWT 1600 and KWT 2000 tedders have a forced-steering system that is implemented by the three-point headstock. By refitting the steering linkage the track width of the transport axle is automatically altered to match the tractor wheelings or rotor wheels. This is made automatically and sequence controlled when the machine moves into transport, headland or working position.

Tracking behind the tractor

The wheels on the transport running gear run in the tractor wheelings whenever the machine is in transport or headland position. This is the optimum configuration for managing narrow gates and headlands.

Following the rotor wheels

In working position, the wheels on the transport running are steered relative to the rotor wheels to match their turning circle. This prevents all wheels from scuffing during a turn, protects the sward and makes for easier tedding along curved border lines.

Accurate guidance

The bottom arms on the chassis give very accurate guidance of the rotors. The wheels on the transport running gear are simply castering, serving as a leading gauge wheel for active tine contouring control.

High productivity and quality of work

The trailed rotary tedders KWT 1300, 1600 and 2000 stand out for an impressive efficiency and the best quality of work. 12, 14, or 18 rotors spread the crop in an extremely uniform mat. The flexible tubes ensure the material is adequately tedded even across the full work width and in undulating fields. Permanently lubricated rotor gearboxes, robust 9.5 mm double tines of unequal lengths, robust tube-section tine holders, a sturdy frame with individual segment adjustment and a wide transport chassis running on flotation tires - all this combines to cope with highest loads and deliver excellent results on and on.

OctoLink finger clutches

Featuring maintenance-free eight-finger clutch and rotor gearboxes that are immersed in semi-fluid grease, the KWT 1300, KWT 1600 and KWT 2000 are made to cope with the highest loads and continue delivering during a long life.

Rotor diameter

The 1.53 m diameter rotors with six tine arms and robust double tines of unequal lengths produce an exemplary spread pattern.

Sturdy frames

High-strength beams are made to cope with the strains of a huge work width. The enclosed hoop guard features cross braces that are arranged at an angle for extra stability. The heavy-duty build not only complies with safety standards but also takes off load from the side arms and joints.

Compensating for the loading

The coil spring connects the top link coupler with the transport frame. When the rotors are in headland position the spring is pressing on the frame, compensating for negative tongue load. This detail allows you to operate a KWT 1300, KWT 1600 or KWT 2000 also with a smaller or more lightweight tractor.

Work height control

The height of all tines is altered on this crank in the middle of the machine for quick and easy adjustment to varying conditions.

Border spreading with curtain

The curtain is controlled hydraulically and is an option for those who seek maximum precision in border spreading. The crop is not thrown beyond the field border.

Automatic folding

Both the KWT 1300 and the high-capacity KWT 1600 and KWT 2000 models fold automatically and sequence controlled from the cab thereby eliminating any risk of operator error. As a last step, a separate spool raises / lowers the booms into headland / work position

The transport running gear

The wide transport running gear ensures quiet running and good road stability even on rough roads. Wider tires are an option here, because flotation rubber on the transport chassis translates into softer treading in boggy terrain and reduced soil compaction thanks to a large contact area.
