AP Silage cutters – type NP

Series NP

The series NP is suitable for use to a heavier tractor with front loader, wheel loader and telescopic handler. Block widths from 160 to 240 cm, the block depth is 85 cm and the block heigth is 86 cm. The capacity varies from 1,20 to 1,80 m³. Optionally this cutter can be equipped with a perforated plate to improve the view of the cutter from the cabin.

All types are available with tines as well with a closed bottom and are standardly delivered with hoses and quick couplings. All models with a closed bottom are equipped with a wear-resistant knife in 400 HB grade steel.
The cutting frame and the closed bottom are double-walled. This sandwich construction is provided with reinforcements so that the silage cutter is very “stiff” in the frame. Thanks to this stiff construction the cutting frame will not twist and the AP silage cutter requires only 2 cylinders. Therefore there is no need for a hydraulic flow divider.

The NP silage blockcutter can be equipped with all common quick attachments, providing the width is sufficient. All attachments are screwed on and therefore simply replaceable.

Hydraulic push-off system (HA)

The hydraulic push-off system makes the unloading of silage or corn blocks easier if the cutter, for whatever reason, has difficulty tipping. The push-off system is only available for the AP silage cutters with tines (shear grabs) en requires the use of an extra double functioning valve.

Hydraulic push-off system with folding base (HAN)

As a supplement to the hydraulic push-off system a folding base can be added. This folding base can be pushed down with the hand. The bottom plate can be locked into place by sliding back the push-off device on the tubular frame.


Inlay in conjunction with hydraulic push-off system (HAIB)

As supplement to the hydraulic push-off system a (removable) inlay can be added. This inlay can be drawn into the cutter or put away by the push-off system so the driver does not have to leave the cabine. The inlay is provided with hooks and the push-off system with catch hooks. Once the inlay is within the silage blockcutter the cutting frame can be closed. Due to this, spilling is reduced to a minimum.
