Swadro 38 T | 42 T | 46 T

  • Wide working width
  • Low power input
  • Parallel-linkage controlled drawbar
  • Standard tandem axle and 18" tyres
  • Swadro 38 T and 42 T not available in Germany
Tandem axle: The tandem axle runs on 18" Super Ballon flotation tires. Raking up every stem and offering a crank handle that controls the rake's lateral tilt, the machine ensures effective raking even in heavy crops.
Low power input: It is not pto power that limits the output of a single rotor rake but the risk of too little load on the tractor's front axle as the machine is being lifted out of work. The answer to this problem is Swadro 38 T, 42 T and 46 T. These trailed models were designed for small and light tractors and applications in sloping fields. They stand out for low tractor power input and are coupled to a rigid drawbar or with a floating drawbar – quick and easy.
Narrow transport width: The side arms on Swadro 46 T fold up easily to provide a compact transport unit and safe travel.

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.

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 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 fold-back 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.

Each tine arm is easily removed: Simply undo two bolts to remove the entire arm complete with bearing and roller.

Sturdy fold-back 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.
