Kuhn EL 53-155
Strong Durability for a Long Lasting Machine
High Clearance Rotor
The rotor and hood design maximizes the efficiency of smaller tractors. Soil and clods flow freely to effectively work the ground without producing unnecessary drag that robs horsepower from the tractor.
Long Service Life and Minimal Maintenance
The rotor is driven by tempered steel sprockets, located in a side case with thick walls on the EL 53. The oversized chain with automatic tension adjustment is much more resistant to fatigue than competitive models. The drive is immersed in an oil bath for consistent lubrication.
Central Cast Iron Gearbox
The central cast iron gearbox of the smaller models is mounted directly on the tiller frame with hardened forged steel gears that run in an oil bath. It can be offset with the 3-point frame to avoid an awkward angle on the transmission. This allows it to work easily under trees and on field edges. The drive is protected as standard by a friction slip clutch.
WORK QUALITY & VERSATILITY
Providing High Work Quality and Versatility
Progressive Lateral Offset
Offset hitch capability normally allows a tiller that is narrower than the tractor to erase the tractor wheel track on its right side. Offsetting the hitch is easily accomplished by sliding the three yokes of the tiller frame. Thanks to this continuous manual offset, the machine can be adapted according to the situation to ensure stability.
Quick Hitch Compatibility
With the optional adapter, the hitches on the EL 23, 43 and 53 are compatible with a Cat. 1 quick hitch for faster attachment and removal.
The compact design and low profile of these small power tillers allows the tiller to work safely under overhanging branches and close to greenhouses.
CUT & INCORPORATE PLANT DEBRIS
Cut and Incorporate Plant Debris
The Cultirotor (C-blades) of KUHN power tillers provide exceptional cutting of plant material and provide a better overall structure before working it into the soil. The blades are able to do field cutting of annual shoots, incorporating mulch and cover plants into the soil or can plow up a permanent vegetation cover.
