Three-point hitch single-rotor rakes

  • Standard tandem axle and flotation tyres
  • Stepless work width control for a consistently high-quality forage
  • The jockey wheel in the middle guides the rotor in undulating fields

Swadro 38 T | 42 T | 46 T


  • Maintenance-free rotors and rotor gearboxes
  • Hard-wearing DuraMax cam tracks with a three-year warranty
  • Rotors featuring the KRONE Jet Effect to avoid crop contamination on headlands

Permanently lubricated and maintenance-free. The enclosed bevel gearboxes and the tine arm rollers are permanently lubricated for optimum care and attention. So, operators need not bother to lube a single component on the rotor.

Steep cam tracks: As the rollers move in steep cam tracks they lift and lower the tine arms quickly and with greatest precision to the effect that the crop stays clean and the windrows are tidy and boxy. The 47 mm (2″) diameter tine guiding rollers offer a generous contact area, are protected from ingress of dust and absolutely maintenance-free.

Hard-wearing KRONE DuraMax cam tracks: For greatest longevity, these cam tracks are made from high-tensile and Bainite-tempered cast SG iron which offers exceptional resistance to wear and tear and is absolutely maintenance-free. For this reason, KRONE is able to offer a three-year warranty on these DuraMax cam tracks.


Great stability and excellent tracking

  • Cleanest rakes as the bogie wheels run in vicinity of the tines
  • Straightforward angle adjustment
  • Castering wheels are standard at the front and an option at the rear to protect the sward

The KRONE Tridem running gear: All rotors run on a Tridem running gear from KRONE. Specified as standard, the running gear consists of an extra wide rear axle and a flexible front axle which form a triangle. Occupying all space under the rotor, the construction has the wheels stabilise the rotors exactly in those areas the tines work under load.

Wide track width and quiet running: It is the extra wide tracking width of the running gear that absorbs the forces that are generated by the rotors and keeps them level and stable in undulating terrain.

The Tandem running gear: A Tandem running gear is available for the rear axle where it enhances rotor control.


Stable running and tidy windrowing

  • Large-diameter and thick-walled tine arms ensure absolutely dependable operation
  • Easy and fast tine arm attachment and removal
  • Sturdy foldback mechanism

Each tine arm is easily removed: Simply undo two bolts to remove the entire arm complete with bearing and roller.

Folding tine arms: Most Swadro models can be specified with foldable tine arms that reduce the machine’s storage and transport height clearly below 4 m (13’2″).


Better and faster – courtesy of KRONE Lift Tines
All rakes in this brochure are specified with the new Lift Tines. The specialty about these is the fact that they are angled in two different positions. This optimized design brings special advantages which have been explored in field trials by KRONE and verified by a DLG test.

KRONE rakes with Lift Tines

  • They rake up more material per hectare at typical work rates and with tines in typical settings and cut common loss rates by 50%
  • They deliver clearly higher work rates without compromising on the quality of work and increase the overall output by up to 27 %
  • They give more effective rakes and protect the sward at an up to 1 cm (3’3″) higher ground clearance
  • They lead to better quality forage, as their Lift effect and higher ground clearance minimize contamination

Setting the tines to an optimum position: The special Lift tines perform better, because their ends maintain a steep angle even in heavy crop and lift it more easily, which leads to more uniform windrows. As a result, the machine can work at a faster pace and still deliver consistently well shaped windrows.

No crop contamination: Thanks to their excellent performance, the Lift tines can work at a greater ground clearance than traditional tines. And thus reduce the risk of crop contamination as well as tine wear.
