Kverneland 853 PRO - 856 PRO

Kverneland 853 Pro and 856 Pro with Increased Blowing Distance and Blockage-Free Dosing

The new Kverneland 853 PRO and 856 PRO have seen a number of updates compared to the well-established Kverneland 850 bale chopper range, to meet the highest demands when it comes to operator comfort and blockage-free operation.

The new Pro series of bale choppers offers a strong package of new features such as redesigned flywheel, new 3-stage swiveling chute, patented feed control system and remote control of tailgate and floor chain.

The Advantages:

  • 3m³ and 6m³ chamber.
  • Blowing distance up to 25m.
  • New 3-stage swiveling PRO chute.
  • On 853 Pro - Drum Feed Control System - Blockage-Free Design 
  • Optimized feeding and bedding.
  • Unique drum-knife configuration to handle a wide variety of materials.
  • Two speed gearbox for reduced flywheel speed when discharging feed materials.

The Pro Chute

  • The Pro chute operates in 3 stages to optimize the blowing distance for bedding
  • Blowing distance up to 20m.
  • Designed with a turning radius of 260° which enables easy access to even difficult reachable spaces.
  • The 3-stage movement enhance the feeding perfomance without blockage even on long fibrous material.

Flywheel Configuration for 853 Pro and 856 Pro

A new flywheel configuration has been developed for the Kverneland 853 Pro and 856 Pro.

  • The features in construction designed 3-stage swivel chute enables the perfect combination of extensive blowing distance and feeding into high troughs
  • To maximise airflow the 1.55m diameter flywheel is fitted with 6 large front blower paddles.
  • The flywheel features 3 main paddles for an increased intake of material from chamber to flywheel.
  • The flywheel does not chop the straw, thus ensures virtual full length material suitable for bedding of covered yard areas.

Drum Feed Control System

  • The Drum Feed Control System (DFCS) is an exclusive feature (patent pending) on the 853 Pro, designed to handle even the most difficult material when feeding.
  • It is a simple and reliable system, which includes a powerful electric cylinder and a comb positioned above the drum.
  • During loading DFCS is engaged, which means that the comb is in a lowered position.
  • This ensures that blockages of the flywheel is minimized during the loading and start up process.
  • Once the flywheel speed is at a sufficient level, all you need to do is to push a button and the DFCS ‘fingers’ will be gradually disengaged and open for full flow through the flywheel resulting in
  • perfect flow.
  • The progressive release of the ‘fingers’ offers a more gentle start, protecting the machine and minimizing the risk of blockages.
  • A reliable and simple system with minimum maintenance!

Two Speed Gearbox

  • To provide the correct flywheel speed for bedding and feeding the Kverneland 853 and 856 are fitted with a two speed gearbox.
  • At lower speeds the flywheel ensures a metered flow of silage or hay for feeding.
  • At high speed a powerful blow for the most efficient distribution during bedding is ensured.
  • The gearbox speed is adjusted via the handle on the side of the machine.

Drum-Knife Configuration

  • The Kverneland 850 range includes a unique drum-knife configuration.
  • Standard on models 853 & 856, the knives are mounted on angled rings so that they pass a fixed ‘comb’ on alternative sides.
  • This ensures that materials are cut and fed into the flywheel chamber evenly, reducing the risk of blockage, offering even discharge & leaving the drum and comb clean.
  • The drum is fitted with 14 blades as standard, but will accept a further 28 blades according to material type - simply bolt them on in a matter of minutes.
  • A patented system - the knives pass the fixed comb on alternative sides for a more even cut.

Knives pass the fixed comb on alternative sides.

Position of knives is a patented Kverneland solution.

Easy Loading of Bales

  • The hydraulically operated rear door fitted to 800 series provides a self loading facility for easy loading of square and round bales.
  • The rear door also offers the ability to carry a second round bale for increased capacity.
  • A bale kit can be fitted to the end of the tailgate to ensure that the bales stay in position during operation.
  • The size of the bale chamber makes it very easy to load the material with a loader - and two round bales can be loaded at the same time - saving time.
