Wider than before and with a new super roller conditioner, the Krone BiG M450CR mower is now available for pre-order from Australian Kubota distributors.

With an 11.2 metre cut width, the mower offers a slightly wider cut than the BiG M450CV, released in 2017, with a flail conditioner at a 9.95 metre cut width.

Kubota Australia’s senior product manager for Krone Lars Pasedag says the machine is tailor-made for the Australian and North American markets.

"We haven’t seen a mower like this in Australia before. This CR model offers a new super roller conditioner. It’s called an M-Roll, as the lug of the roller has two pressure points to give the crop extra crimping while it travels through the roller," he says.

"This process delivers quicker drying time for the crop in the field to get the hay into a bale and safely off the paddock compared to standard roller conditioners."

Echuca CIH dealer principal Darren Stephenson says the mower is more powerful than its predecessor, with a wider cut and updated interior.

"The existing BiG M 400 was an eight-year-old model that was due for an update," he says.
