New Holland Discbine® 316 (flail)


Discbine Disc Mower-Conditioners Discbine® 316 (flail)


New Holland has taken the Discbine® mower-conditioner to a new level with two new center-pivot models. Combining both speed and performance, the new Discbine® 313 and Discbine® 316 feature increased durability, more efficient crop flow and smoother, more effective conditioning.

The combination of larger cutting discs and a wider conditioning system leads to cleaner cutting, better crop flow and more consistent drying. Co-rotating disc modules have been removed on the Discbine 313 and reduced to one pair on the Discbine 316. This greatly reduces the crop convergence between the cutterbar and the conditioner.

Improved header attaching link geometry contributes to more responsive flotation. The rear pivot points of the header attaching links are lower than the pivot points on the front, ensuring the header moves up and back should you encounter an obstacle. In addition, the upper end of the flotation springs are anchored with a ball-and-socket arrangement that eliminates any binding as the header moves through its flotation range.
