36–52m³ Magnon Forage Wagon

Introduction

Magnon 8 & 10

The Magnon series is aimed primarily at agricultural businesses and contractors . The top of the Strautmann range of forage wagons are equipped with a number of new features including a Moving Front Wall, as well as Flex-Load pick-up and Exact Cut.

The Magnon 8 is a compact machine with a loading capacity of 36m³ to 44m³ (DIN). It has a smaller ‘external’ footprint to other wagons with similar DIN. 

The Magnon 10 is the big brother wagon with a loading capacity of 40  to 52m³ (DIN).

Features

Moving Front Wall

Magnon 8 moving front wallThe hydraulically moving front wall provides the Magnon with increased capacity. When the wagon starts filling, the front wall is in a vertical position towards the rear of the wagon, but when chopped grass builds up and pushes against the tailgate sensor the front panel moves forward, in three stages, to increase capacity.  This ensures maximum density is achieved throughout the loading operation. 

The movement of the front wall provides an additional 4.5 m³ loading capacity when the cargo space is completely filled.  When discharging, the front wall is hydraulically moved to the rear of the machine to assist with unloading.

This enables the Magnon 8 to have a smaller ‘external’ footprint to other wagons with similar DIN making it the ideal machine for agricultural businesses and contractors who are dependent on compact dimensions.

Continuous Flow System

 

Continuous Flow System

Due to the interaction of the different components, the Continuous Flow System unit ensures excellent loading performance and a low power requirement. The pick-up, Continuous Flow System roller, rotor and double-cut cutting unit are optimally matched to each other. This results in an excellent cutting quality and power efficient drive, saving time and money.

 

Low power requirement

The newly developed pick-up and the Continuous Flow System drum spreads out and disperses the swathe and feeds it over the entire width of the rotor and the cutting unit. The rotor, which is mounted 100mm higher, conveys the pre-wilted green fodder through the shortened conveyor duct into the cargo space, thus saving energy and reducing the power requirement by approx. 10%.

 

Full width filling

Thanks to the Continuous Flow System roller spreading the forage over the whole rotor width, the material is loaded into the cargo space over its entire loading space. We measured 10% more weight per cubic meter. The Continuous Flow System gives more weight than the competitors at the same capacity, making the tonnage capacity more important than the cargo space volume.

 

High Performance

A better filling spread also affects acreage performance. The areas to be harvested can be cleared quicker and the fodder is moved faster to the clamp. After all, time is money.

 

Optimum adaptation to ground contours

Due to the design of the Continuous Flow System drum, the pick-up is at a very shallow angle, such that the pressure exerted on the feed rollers is very low, which enables the pick-up to better adapt to the contours of the ground.

Furthermore, the green fodder is continuously and gently picked up due to the V-shaped helical arrangement of the pick-up tines. 

Tines are always picking up, but the V-shape means not all tines are touching the ground at the same time, preventing power peaks.

 

Preservation of drive line

Due to the homogeneous and continuous flow of material, the Continuous Flow System conveying unit runs very smoothly and consistently, meaning there are hardly any peak loads. And if there are no peak loads, the complete drive unit will be free from excessive forces ensuring a long service life of the conveying unit and therefore of the entire forage wagon.

The rotor is powered via an oil-bath gearbox to the rotor. The high (1000rpm) speed through the drive line is reduced to the rotor for both maximum torque and preservation of the drive line.

 

Longer service life of knives

As the Continuous Flow System spreads the grass evenly across the chopping rotor there is an even load on each of the knives. This means that knives wear more consistently and the sharpening interval is extended. On machines without a Continuous Flow System system the central knives become blunt and reduce machine performance, this does not happen with a Strautmann Continuous Flow System pick-up. In addition, the knives are designed so that you are able to sharpen or replace only the blades that you need to, rather than all of the knives.

 

Double-roller crop press

The Innovative crop press roller has been designed to optimise forage flow into the Flex-Load pick-up.  It is standard throughout the Magnon range.  The larger diameter, double roller crop press with a slip-proof profile ensures optimal flow into the mechanically powered Flex-Load pick-up. In addition, a guide roller mounted behind the pick-up is available as an optional extra for optimum adaptation to the ground

'Flex-Load' system

The Magnon series is equipped with a new ‘Flex-Load’ pick-up which has six rows of plastic tines arranged in chevron formation. The pick-up is powered hydraulically for infinitely variable adjustment.

  • Less breakage of tines
  • Minimised tine wear
  • Change of tines in under a minute
  • Tines flex to adapt to ground contours
  • Gentle pick up for ground protection
  • Less contamination of fodder 

More information on the flex-load pick-up can be found here

Continuous Flow System camless pick-up
  • Picking-up width of 2.25m
  • 6 helically arranged rows of plastic tines for reduced contamination of fodder.
  • Low maintenance camless pick-up with very few wearing parts, compared to traditional 'cam' pick-up systems.

Exact-Cut system

A new cutting system with a cutting edge on both sides of the re-designed double sided blade, a 35mm chop-length is reliably guaranteed. The knives have a rapid-trigger protection function, which automatically retracts them from the chop channel if a foreign object is detected.

They then return automatically to their working position, maximising work-rates while minimising damage to the knives. 44 double sided 'Exact-Cut' knives are fitted to the Magnon 8, whilst 48 double-sided 'Exact-Cut' knives are fitted to the Magnon 10. 

  • Easy cutting cut due to optimum geometry between the cutting knives and rotor
  • Knife protection without use of tools
  • Turn-able knives due to double-sided blade for longer sharpening intervals and better cutting quality
  • Individual knife protection with knife quick-change system
  • Readjustment via threaded spindles for worn knives
  • Hydraulic extending and retracting of the entire knife bar

Transport floor

round chain powder coated floor The Forage box is 2.25m wide and consists of four round steel chains (10 x 31 mm) embedded in the steel platform floor. They each have a breaking strain of 13t. The entire platform is powder-coated for protection against corrosion.

 

Body

 The body has been designed for maximum interior width to increase transport capacity. The continuous side panels with the reinforced side posts give the vehicle stability. A large 6-foot access door with a folding ladder always ensures safe entry into the vehicle.

 

Cargo space cover

 Safe transport of the loaded material can be guaranteed with the optional cargo space cover. This solution is hydraulically operated via a swivel drive and can be easily operated from the tractor seat. Available on the Magnon 10 models only. 

 

 

Tandem Chassis

 

A boogie tandem chassis is standard on the two smaller Magnon 8 models (370 and 410) and a hydraulic tandem chassis is standard on the Magnon 8 450 model smaller Magnon 10 430 and 470 models.  It is optional on the 370 and 410 Magnon 8 models.  All models come with 4 x 710/50 R26.5 wheels as standard. 

However, the hydraulic tandem chassis can be fitted with wheels up to 800/45 R 30.5, thus enabling 30.5" tyres. Larger wheels offer increased stability which is ideal for sloping ground.

  •  Hydraulic tandem chassis standard on all Magnon 8 450 models, and on Magnon 10 430 and 470 models
  • Optimum driving comfort due to distribution of load on all wheels
  • Stable driving characteristics even when traversing hills
