The new Andex 724 Hydro is fitted with hydraulically operated axles on the main frame in order to lift and lower the machine during transport and operation. This feature significantly reduces transport height by 45 cm, allowing a transport height as low as 3.45m. And this is even without detaching the tine arms.
All main functions of the Andex 724 Hydro are operated from the tractor cab with a new electro hydraulic control terminal. In addition to lifting and lowering the main frame the compact handheld terminal also controls functions such as lifting and lowering of the two rotors. It is also possible to pre-select lift activation of the rotor units (left/right/both) via the terminal. Vicon is the only manufacturer offering such an integrated solution.
The Andex 724 Hydro produces a nice even swath from a raking with of up to 7.20m. The rake offer hydraulically adjustable working width from 6.20 right up to 7.20m, enabling varying swath width from 1.20 to 1.90m. This ensures a perfect match to any kind of harvesting machine with narrow or wide pick ups.
The Andex 724 Hydro is fitted with the Vicon TerraLink Quattro wheel system for superb ground contour followings. This system controls the rotor in 3 dimensions, with a unique combination of undercarriage with 4 wheels and a specially designed rotor suspension system. The wheels are positioned very close to the tines for maximum and accurate adaptation allowing the driver to maximize driving speed but still with a clean and loss free raking performance. Soil contamination of the raked grass is also minimized
