Swadro 2000

  • Variable, up to 19.00 m (62'4") work widths
  • Variable, up to 3.00 m (9'10") windrow widths
  • Intelligent transport wheel steering
The giant centre-delivery rake: Relying on six rotors and offering variable work widths between 10 m (32'10") and 19 m (62'4"), Swadro 2000 from KRONE is the biggest machine on the market which brings you unsurpassed efficiency, very little maintenance and quickest changeovers as well as high transport speeds, great longevity and a maximum of operator comfort and on top covers up to 20 hectares (49.5 acres) per hour. The windrows produced by Swadro 2000 are about 30% shorter per hectare than those produced by a four-rotor rake. A 30% shorter windrow translates into fewer passes and an up to 15% higher output of the following harvesters. As such, Swadro 2000 presents the ideal machine for large-scale and contracting operations.

the tine arms

Stable running and tidy windrowing

  • Large-diameter and thick-walled tine arms ensure absolutely dependable operation
  • Easy and fast tine arm attachment and removal
  • Sturdy foldback mechanism
Tine arms and tines: The tine arms are thick-walled and large in diameter. 10.5 mm (0.4") double tines that wind around the arms in three massive spring coils offering outstanding flexibility and longevity. Each tine arm carries four double tines.Swadro Liftzinken 2015 DE Internet Seite 12 Bild 0001
Each tine arm is easily removed: Simply undo two bolts to remove the entire arm complete with bearing and roller.Swadro TS TC 026
Sturdy foldback mechanism: Gap-free and hard-wearing functionality comes from a holder that is made from hardened steel and has a pivoting joint that is loaded by a Belleville spring on the models with multiple rotors.Swadro TS TC 054


easy operation
The operator uses the DS 500 terminal with backlit display screen to enter the rotor height, work width and windrowing width and activate the sequential lift-out and lowering actions. This terminal provides auto height control for all rotors on Swadro 2000 Plus after setting the height of one rotor. An optional joystick is available to offer even more convenient operation.Swadro TS TC 098
The CCI 800 terminal is ISOBUS-compatible, which means it can be fitted to most ISOBUS machinery irrespective of the make. This terminal is also available with an optional joystick.
Detecting raked areas and raising the rotors to avoid raking one patch twice, the automatic SectionControl feature is a great help for operators when swathing wedges and awkward areas.


the jet effect
The KRONE Jet Effect prevents the tines from damaging the sward on the headland and ensures the crop stays clean. As the bogies are lowered into work, the rear wheels touch down first before the leading wheels follow. Vice versa, as the rotors lift out it is the leading wheels that lift out first and the rear wheels that follow. This is identical with the take-off and touch-down phases observed with airplanes.


krone lift tines

Clean windrows, better feed

  • Greater ground clearance
  • Higher work rates
  • No crop contamination
  • Higher-quality forage
  • Minimum crop loss
Setting the tines to an optimum position: The special Lift tines perform better, because their ends maintain a steep angle even in heavy crop and lift it more easily, which leads to more uniform windrows. As a result, the machine can work at a faster pace and still deliver consistently well shaped windrows.
No crop contamination: Thanks to their excellent performance, the Lift tines can work at a greater ground clearance than traditional tines. And thus reduce the risk of crop contamination as well as tine wear.


the running gear

Great stability and excellent tracking

  • Cleanest rakes as the bogie wheels run in vicinity of the tines
  • Straightforward angle adjustment
  • Castering wheels are standard at the front and an option at the rear to protect the sward
Wide track width and quiet running: It is the extra wide tracking width of the running gear that absorbs the forces that are generated by the rotors and keeps them level and stable in undulating terrain.


the cardanic rotor suspension

Great flexibility and cleanest rakes

  • Optimum contouring in any direction through pivoting rotors
  • Cleanest forage from the KRONE Jet Effect during take-off and touch-down
  • Central suspension for a uniform ground pressure across the full widths of the rotors
The cardanic rotor suspension: The rotors pivot in and across the direction of travel to give optimum adaptation to undulating ground. A cardanic joint on the arm with two elongated holes prevents the tines from being pressed into the ground or from being left suspended in the air, thereby avoiding crop contamination as well as throwing the grass about.
The central suspension: The rotors suspend centrally across the direction of travel which allows them to produce consistent and high-quality windrows. The special suspension ensures they always stay level as they lift and lower on the headland. In addition, the machine’s weight is distributed uniformly on all wheels of the running gear as it travels down the field.


heavy-duty and maintenance-free
  • Maintenance-free rotors and rotor gearboxes
  • Hard-wearing DuraMax cam tracks with a three-year warranty
  • Rotors featuring the KRONE Jet Effect to avoid crop contamination on headlands
Permanently lubricated and maintenance-free. The enclosed bevel gearboxes and the tine arm rollers are permanently lubricated for optimum care and attention. So, operators need not bother to lube a single component on the rotor.
Boosting the productivity of the entire harvest chain is no problem for KRONE Swadro. The steep cam track is made from hard-wearing materials and provides precision guidance for the tines. A small track diameter in combination with massive cams make for quiet running, reduce wear and lead to well-shaped swaths. DuraMax cam track – maximum efficiency and maintenance-free components. Swadro is fun to use.


variable working and swathing widths
The variable work width: The work width is adapted to the capacity of the following harvester by moving the arms hydraulically into the proper position, thereby varying the working width from 10 m (32'10") to 19 m (62'4"). The two arms are synchronized by the sliding carriage as they move into position.
The flexible windrowing width: An optimal windrow width boosts the overall harvesting efficiency. The width of a windrow is altered by telescoping the rear arms hydraulically, which adjusts the distance between the two rotors at the rear. The telescoping arms adjust to widths between 1.80 m (5'11") and 3 m (9'10").
The rotors lift out of work: They can lift/lower individually, sequentially or simultaneously. A hydraulic sequence control system is a particular boon for easy operation. Furthermore, a GPS based SectionControl feature is available as an option which lifts out individual rotors.
The tines on the four rotor tines operate at a higher speed than the units at the rear. The effect of differing rotor speeds is that the windrows are produced without roping.
