Kuhn Krause adds a smaller, 8-row version of its popular Gladiator line of strip-till equipment to match up with farmers’ row-crop tractors and 16-row planters. Suggested retail price: $84,000.
Also, the company extends its Excelerator vertical-tillage system with a larger, 40-ft. version called the Excelerator 8000, which is pulled by 400-hp tractors. The 2012 model features the Kuhn Krause red color. It also features hydraulically adjustable gangs, which Curt Davis, marketing manager for Kuhn Krause, explains. Suggested retail price: $112,000.
The two implements were on display during the 2012 National Farm Machinery Show.
