Vicon is now completing the EXTRΔ 300 centre mounted disc mower series. The three new additions to the range, EXTRΔ 328, 332 and 340 with corresponding working widths of 2.8, 3.2 and 4.0m means that Vicon is now closing the gap from 2.8 all the way up to 4.0m. The new models feature the same characteristics as EXTRΔ 336, including centre suspension and above vertical transport position.
The new EXTR∆ 328, 332 and 340 shares the sleek design of the rest of the new EXTRΔ 300 series. The colour combination of the EXTR∆ 300 series with tarpaulins in red and black gives a modern look and stronger link to the range of mower conditioners, already applying this design.
All EXTRΔ 300 models are folded hydraulically into an above vertical transport position. The low gravity point during transport provides an excellent weight distribution, with the weight of the mower close to the tractor. Also the weight is distributed evenly to each side of the tractor, which protects both mower and tractor from excessive forces during transport. The tractor and mower remains well balanced even at high speed road transport. Transport height is limited, so passing through narrow gateways or under bridges is no problem.
The new EXTRΔ 300 range is centre suspended via a suspension spring, to give an even weight distribution across the complete mower width. Faster and more precise adaptation to ground contours is also achieved because of the centre suspended design. The benefit is less skid wear and optimum protection of the stubble.
To offer maximum protection of the cutterbar the EXTR∆ 300 series is fitted with the Vicon feature BreakBack. When encountering an obstacle, the BreakBack will swing the machine backwards and over the obstacle, returning to its original working position once the obstacle has been passed.
Each machine, from 2.8 to 4.0m, is factory fitted with the option of being operated with either 540 or 1000 rpm. It requires no additional accessory. All that is needed is simply to turn the main gearbox on the suspension 180°.
