WINDROWER 15/20 CENTER DISCHARGE SHREDDER
Combining a unique tunnel design with our exclusive hard-surface cupped knives, the Loftness Windrow Shredder produces the optimal particle size for baling corn fodder and other kinds of residue. The exclusive Loftness tunnel and shroud design maximizes airflow that discharges a cleaner windrow than traditional rake implements.
Hay rakes make dirty windrows. The Loftness center discharge shredder, however, efficiently creates clean windrows for baling.
The windrowers feature heavy-duty design, engineering and construction throughout.
A standard feature on all Loftness shredder equipment, this field-proven and extremely reliable gearbox is rated at 280 HP. It spins the rotor at 1,450 RPM.
Windrower shredders are equipped with a reduced number of 4-1/2-inch-wide hard-surface cupped knives. The Windrower’s unique rotor knife pattern is designed to produce increased suction and enhance chop efficiency. Greater suction means you can operate just a bit higher, reducing the risk of striking hidden objects. This helps make the Windrower a perfect preparation tool for baling corn fodder and other kinds of residue.
This unique design from Loftness allows high-speed air and particles to flow freely to the diffuser. They can also be operated in a retracted position for non-windrowing operations.
The grate-like diffuser deflects and directs the final chopped residue toward the ground. Combined with the rear shields, this system creates cleaner rows than those made by rakes.
The Windrower offers precise height adjustment for fine-tuning performance and chop. Rear lifting choices include three ratchets or three hydraulic lift units.
Efficient transfer of power via a four-groove banded belt and spring loaded push-type idler system.
1-3/8-inch or 1-3/4-inch 1,000 RPM power takeoff. Includes over-running clutch and constant velocity knuckle.
