Kverneland 53100MT BX Triple Disc Mower proves the importance of a quality and reliable mower
Alywn Young of WC Young & Sons Ltd, well-known contractors based in Castlederg, Co. Tyrone can’t stress enough how getting through tough times and even tougher conditions makes the quality and reliability of your mower crucial. “Our mowers of choice would tend to be Kverneland, the reason being we’d have challenging conditions, we did try a few other makes but we always seem to ended up back at Kverneland”
Running sets of Kverneland 53100MT BX butterfly mowers, Alywn finds one the main benefits is the weight of the mowers, particularly on heavy ground. “These mowers definitely now are a lot lighter and whenever the mowers are lifted and he’s turning, he’s not leaving the same imprints or the same damage to the ground”. While the wider cutting width of 10.2 metres means less travel over challenging ground. “These mowers really float, you can watch them, they really do” he says of the ground following ability of the patented “Racecar” QuattroLink four arm suspension of this flagship model.
For Alywn as a busy contractor being able to rely on the service and commitment of his local Kverneland Dealers is key. “You couldn’t fault them” he comments. On his brand of mowers, he is firm “We’ve always used Kverneland and Kverneland with us has got a proven track record”.
With the continued growth of the triple mower market Kverneland have expanded their product offering to include the 5387 MT and the 5387 MT with belts featuring patented QuattroLink suspension.
The range starts from the entry-level model, the 5087 MN, 8.7M nylon conditioner triple mower, an efficient yet uncomplicated mower purpose built to lower costs in terms of power and fuel consumption.
John Doyle, product manager Kverneland group Ireland sees the 5387 MT as geared towards the self sufficient farmer or entry-level contractor who may be looking to upgrade from a front and rear mower combination. “We believe this mower is as robust and uncomplicated a triple mower as is in the market today, while offered at a very competitive price. This model is particularly suitable for a medium sized tractor which helps with lower fuel consumption”
We see this mower as bridging the gap between the entry level 5087MN and our flagship 53100 MT, 10M triple mower”. Kverneland see this latest product offering as completing the range of butterfly mowers on offer in the Irish market.
Both the 5387 and the 53100MT are available with swath Belts. “For the customer who wants to go straight to harvesting, this is an extremely efficient operation” John comments. “Uniquely we offer a quick coupling solution for the 53100MT, which allows you to remove the swath Belts within minutes. The upshot means the contractor or farmer can adapt quickly to whatever customer requirements are, not only saving time but more importantly weight and fuel consumption”.
The 53100 MT, top of the range, offers an impressive 10.2M working width, with ISOBUS controls, and Vario suspension arms allowing an overlap of 400mm on each mower, which is adjustable on the go. The two rear 3.6M mowers is Kverneland’s most powerful triple mower made for high level uptime and productivity.
