The fast, cost-effective way to reduce drying time, improve quality and increase profitability
Reduced drying time
The TubeLine Accelerator hay and silage conditioner is designed to provide far faster drying than would normally be achieved with a mower conditioner or by tedding and rowing up.
Two crimping rollers bend and crack the stem to provide a far more aggressive conditioning action than a conditioning unit on a mower. In addition, the rollers accelerate the flow of the crop, and this in conjunction with its aggressive crimping action leaves a ‘fluffed-up’ swath through which air can circulate far better than if it had just been tedded.
By achieving an improved crimping action, drying time can be reduced by as much as a day, helping you achieve improved timeliness, better quality and increased profitability.
Raised – The Agway Accelerator has plenty of ground clearance for transport or crop clearance in the field.
Lowered – The low working position ensures no grass is missed.
The rear side and top deflectors on the Accelerator can be set to either spread and ‘fluff-up’ the crop or brought in to row-up for baling.
The two steel rollers each have 11 crimping ridges to provide a more aggressive crimping action. The spring loaded top roller can be tightened for a more aggressive crimping action but still allowing protection from foreign objects and heavy lumps of grass by letting them pass through unhindered.
The heavy duty chain drive reliably transfers power from the slip-clutch protected gearbox to each of the rollers. A pivoting jack shaft ensures consistent tension regardless of roller setting.
