At a dealer exclusive day held in Naracoorte South Australia, Kuhn representatives provided dealers the opportunity to witness the machine at work and in detail through workshops before the public arrived for its Kuhn Expo 2020.

An imposing machine, the SB 1290 iD baler could shake things up in the baler market, highlighted by its own patented double plunger chamber mechanism. The double plunger system allows the SD 1290 baler to reach extreme density on bales, while lowering power consumption.

Able to work in hay, straw, lucerne, maize, straw and sugar cane, the SD 1290 iD baler’s versatility will be key when reaching the consumer.

Kuhn also debuted its latest cultivator, the Optimer L 12000. The 12-metre machine only arrived down under last week, but was put to the test in front of dealers’ eyes.

Over 30 Kuhn machines from its hay, silage, tillage, spraying, spreading, and feed mixing machines were on display.

Stay tuned for more Kuhn Expo 2020 action.
