40–52m³ Magnon CFS Forage Wagon


Magnon CFS

With the Magnon CFS, Strautmann is presenting a new series in the segment of professional silage wagons with a large number of new features. A completely new pick-up concept, the newly developed "Exact-Cut" cutting unit and the hydraulically swivelling front Panel enable top harvesting Performance.

Continous-Flow System (CFS)


Continous-Flow System (CFS)

Due to the interaction of the different components, the CFS unit ensures excellent loading performance and a low power requirement. The pick-up, CFS 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 "CFS 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 CFS 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 CFS 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 CFS 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.


Protection of drives

Due to the homogeneous and continuous flow of material, the CFS 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.


Longer service life of knives

As the "CFS" 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 CFS system the central knives become blunt and reduce machine performance, this does not happen with a Strautmann "CFS" pickup. 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.

CFS Feed rotor

● Robust conveyor drum with helically arranged conveyor fins with Hardox tine plates

● Smooth operation, with no peak loads due to the helical rotor design

● One-sided, torsion-free drive of loading rotor due to low-maintenance gearbox 

● Wide strippers with 17mm Hardox plates.


CFS Cam-less pick-up


  • Picking-up width of 2.25 m.
  • 6 helically arranged tine rows for reduced contamination of fodder.
  • Cam-less pick-up with very few wearing parts and low maintenance, compared to traditional Cam pick-up systems.

CFS Drum

● Distributor drum between the pick-up and rotor. 

● Delivers fodder from pick-up to the rotor ensuring low hp requirement 

● Even, full-width spread of material due to the helical welded layer, so the entire rotor width is utilised, keeping a minimal and constant load on the machine. 


48-knife cutting unit

● 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

● 48 knives, on one level for a theoretical cutting length of 35 mm

● Readjustment via threaded spindles for worn knives 

● Hydraulic extending and retracting of the entire knife bar.


Flex-Load system

The Magnon 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


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. It is available on all Magnon, Giga 01 & 02 wagons. The Magnon also has a hydraulically pivoting headboard that expands the load capacity by 5m³

  • 48 knives ‘Exact-Cut’ unit (Magnon)
  • 45 knives ‘Exact-Cut’ unit (Giga 01)
  • 44 knives ‘Exact-Cut’ unit (Giga 02)
  • 35 mm cutting length
  • Tool-free knife change


  1. Double sided knife
  2. Locking shaft
  3. Toggle lever with plastic damper
  4. Return spring
Transport floor


  • Transport floor chains made of solid square tubes welded to low-wear plate-link chains.
  • These chains do not stretch as much as round steel chains and require less maintenance.
  • Galvanised steel floor for excellent gliding properties and long service life.
  • Separate chain tensioner 



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.


Tandem chassis


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


  • Hydro-pneumatic suspension
  • Electronic-hydraulic forced steering axle system for the first and third axle
  • Integrated lift axle
  • Standard for the Magnon 530 models with a gross vehicle weight rating of 34t

ISOBUS control

Strautmann Smart 570 ISOBUS control unit

  • 5.7” colour touch screen with membrane buttons for ease of use when working
  • Numerous automatic functions available for intuitive and comfortable operation
  • Auto drawbar height , Auto lock of steering in reverse (optional), lighting and beacon (If fitted)
  • 3 operating modes which are logically set out (Road , Loading , Road ,Unloading ) which can be scrolled through at the touch of a button.

The ISOBUS control offers the driver easy operation without having to familiarise themselves with a new control box. Of course, the ISO suitability also creates the option of operation via existing terminals on the premises or on the tractor. Thus, interesting advantages of the valuable control terminals can be transferred to the machine use.




Hydraulic folding drawbar

For travelling over silage clamps, all models are equipped with a hydraulic folding drawbar with two double-acting cylinders. A hydraulic drawbar suspension ensures an even smoother ride during road travel.

Dual purpose

In order to increase the periods of use of the forage wagons, the Strautmann forage wagon offers the option to be used as fully-fledged forage transport wagon. For this purpose, basic standard equipment is provided for these vehicles, such as:

  • A solid tailgate with mechanical locking mechanism
  • Open cargo space without body brackets or ropes
  • Hydraulically folding front panel

Unloading options


Solid tailgate (standard)

  • With hydraulic locking mechanism
  • Full width for quick discharge
  • With integrated pressure switch for level indicator


Effective dosing drums (optional)

  • Dosing unit with 3 standard beaters
  • Equipped with aggressive ripping tines


Robust drive

  • Driven by large-sized roller chains
  • Safety switch-off at the bottom beater
  • When the wagon is full, the bottom beater is able to move to the rear, thus stopping the transport floor moving.
