Kuhn's Primor straw blower offers versatility

Presented by

For farmers with demanding, large-scale operations, it is now possible to load and distribute high volumes of hay or straw with Kuhn's Primor 5570 M straw blower

This machine offers a diverse range of functions. It is perfect for generating evenly chopped products for feeding and bedding for the livestock industry and is ideal for distributing a consistent amount of mulch under the vine for viticulturalists.

Increasing efficiency while reducing costs is often an important factor when choosing machinery for large scale farming operations.

For viticulturalists, the use of straw mulch in vineyards helps to keep moisture in the soil and reduces the amount of irrigation needed. It also controls weeds around the bottom of the vine, improving soil health in the long term.


Barossa Valley farmer Steve Schiller uses Kuhn's Primor 5570 M straw blower

Kuhn’s Primor 5570 M’s 300-degree swivel chute increases efficiency in the mulching and bedding process. It allows users to distribute straw to the left, right and rear of the machine. The design of the unroll system allows three round bales to fit into the machine at any one time while distributing straw.

Fifth generation viticulturalists from the Barossa Valley region, Steve Schiller and his family have been putting straw onto their vineyard for over 25 years.

After years of trialling different distribution methods and machinery, the Primor 5570 M has become an integral part of their family’s viticulture operation.

"I can carry three round bales, and a single bale is going 130m, so it is a highly efficient machine," Schiller says.

"I've put about 1500 bales through the machine with very minimal wear on it. It is a really well-built machine."

For livestock feeding and bedding, the in-built turbine is composed of eight blades. This ensures that fodder is continually fed through the turbine, maintaining even distribution and enhancing operator efficiency.

The Primor 5570 M is built with technological features that improve the ease of use at every step of the straw blowing or feeding process.

The dual control tailgate allows operators to load round bales from the ground, while the electric control panel can be built into any tractor cab, allowing users full access to their controls from the driver’s seat.
