New Kuhn Krause Excelerator XT 8010 – Exceler8ing the VT Market

Building upon the legendary field performance of the Excelerator 8005, the new Kuhn Krause Excelerator XT 8010 continues to offer customers a 1 to 5 degree gang angle adjustment for proven VT performance with an XTended gang angle adjustment of 6 to 8 degrees for a more aggressive tillage action.

Unlike some competitors, the Excelerator XT 8010 design avoids double-digit disc gang angles and shallow concavity disc blades, which can create a less than ideal VT seedbed. Kuhn designed the Excelerator XT 8010 to maintain a superior vertical tillage seedbed, leveling capabilities, speed of operation, uniform residue distribution, plus a consistent pass-to-pass finish. Sizes offered include 30, 34 and 40-foot cut widths.

Product Features

  • Excelerator XT 8010 Gang Angles: adjust from 1-5 degrees for true vertical tillage while an XTended range of 6-8 degrees results in more aggressive action.
  • Combination Blade Spacing: provides optimal soil displacement and residue sizing from the 7″ front spacing while maintaining reliable soil and residue flow with 8″ rear.
  • Mid-Mount Tines: a single row of HD 5/8″ x 27″ x 7″ tines redistribute residue concentrations, provide initial clod sizing and begin the leveling process ahead of the rear Excalibur VT gangs.
  • New Frame Design: incorporates dual cylinders on each wing section to relieve undue stress on the frame and application of uniform constant-flow hydraulic wing down-pressure.
  • Optional Hydraulic Gang Adjustment: provides in-cab gang adjustment performed on the go from the tractor cab. Vary gang angles independently front to rear or together.
  • Excalibur VT Blades: Kuhn’s 32 flute, 22″ hybrid blade design, continues to offer exceptional wear life and ability to retain a cutting edge as it wears.
  • Star Wheel Treader: rear finishing attachment remains as a premier attachment that has been tough for the competition to emulate. Superior leveling, residue incorporation and clod sizing.

Baleskiis Bale Liners from New Holland

The BaleSkiis® baler liner was developed to eliminate the problems associated with all sizes of square balers. It is the only significant improvement in the elimination of square baler problems since the square baler has been put into wide-spread use. While eliminating the problems of the baler, it also improves the function and cost effectiveness of the power source that runs the baler (tractor or engine). It improves the efficiency and use of the bale retrieving, transporting, and stacking equipment, by making a more uniform and compact bale. Because of the BaleSkiis® design it does so with no moving parts and, in fact, reduces wear on the baler and power source.

We developed the BaleSkiis® baler liner and used and tested it extensively in our own haying operation in a wide variety of forages and haying conditions. After having such good results with our own haying equipment, we decided to back up those results with official tests. It was tested by the Alberta Farm Machinery Research Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta under PAMI and their guidelines.

The results confirmed our tests and also showed that there is a bonus of 30% more leaf retention when using the BaleSkiis® Baler Liner. Leaves containing more nutrition and protein are a BIG plus. With more of them retained, the more valuable the hay is with added protein and pounds per acre.

The New Holland Genesis T8 With PLM Intelligence

The New Holland redesigned T8 is built for the way you work. Growing production demands, resource challenges, labor shortages, weather uncertainties… these are just a few of the obstacles you face every day. You need a dependable partner in the field to help you simplify things. One that knows your operation inside and out. That connects you effortlessly to real-time resources and insights. That adapts to the way you work… not the other way around.

Customizable Control— When the time comes to deliver precision results in the field, there’s no room for a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Every operator has their own unique preferences and requirements with their IntelliView display. So, we built your controls package around the revolutionary idea that custom adjustments should come standard. Variable hydraulic technology lets you control all eight remote valves from any of 15 in-cab hydraulic buttons. Up to nine configurable buttons let you customize armrest controls to the operator or the task at hand.

Improved Visibility— Whether you’re in an open field or on a busy road, awareness of your surroundings is essential. We’ve reduced in-cab obstructions, placed your InfoView™ monitor in direct line-of-sight and even installed a nose mounted camera and a rear facing camera for road safety and in-field work. Welcome to your new horizon. Additional cab lights and controls let you configure custom lighting patterns, choose from three different lighting packages and turn night into day. Redesigned cab and instrument layout provides you with nearly 360-degrees of visibility. Strategically placed cameras offer additional safety, visibility and peace of mind. In the field or on the road.

Enhanced Comfort— With all the hours you spend in the field, shouldn’t work feel a little more like home? We think so. That’s why we’ve added more accessible storage, power ports, HVAC vents, egress lights and the most comfortable seat outside of your living room. Multi-zone HVAC system ensures optimal comfort, control and visibility no matter the climate or season. Redesigned SideWinder™ Ultra armrest offers multi-directional, independent motion to provide nearly infinite comfort configurations.

Advanced Support— When there’s no time for “downtime,” you need a tractor that measures productivity and precision in seconds and inches. We engineered New Holland Remote Assistance to provide remote connectivity, advanced diagnostics, and remote display viewing whenever, and wherever you need it. Customer-to-Vehicle connectivity allows you to run your farm business from the cab, the farm office or the other side of the world. Dealer-to-Vehicle connectivity helps you minimize downtime with proactive support, remote monitoring and diagnostics, and in-field software updates. Advisor-to-Vehicle connectivity lets you stay in touch with nutritionists, agronomists and other experts to improve decision-making on the move.

Intuitive Simplicity— True innovation doesn’t require an advanced degree to operate. To help you harness all of the powerful features and technologies built into the new T8, we developed a user-friendly interface that feels as natural and instinctual as agriculture itself. Improved button orientation and handle ergonomics put precision command in your hands. Enhanced joystick design lets you control tractor transmission functions as well as hydraulic remotes. Bluetooth connection allows you to control phone and radio through armrest or display. Easily split screens, expand tiles, and set up tasks right from the homescreen on the new IntelliView 12™ in-cab display.
