Kverneland 4336 Mower Conditioner (MoCo) 

The Kverneland Mower Conditioner, fondly known as the MoCo, is a favourite among hay and alfalfa producers. It guarantees faster dry-off times by effectively conditioning the crop while mowing. Its design ensures clean cuts, minimizing soil contamination. 

Trailed mower conditioner with centre pivot drawbar.  

Including features such as a semi-swing conditioner, low maintenance cutter bar, SuperFloat suspension, BX Auto-Swather belt (optional), and FlipOver wide-spreading (optional), the Kverneland 4336 is ready to meet every request with exceptional performance. 

Key features: 

  • Cutterbar with round discs. The round discs have always been a known Kverneland hallmark. The unique circular design means that a constant distance is kept between the outer edges of the disc. Stones are expelled immediately before risking blockage, which reduces shock loads on the transmission to an absolute minimum. This in turn improves durability and maintenance substantially. 
  • Gentle roller conditioning – for the fragile crop. Roller conditioning provides gentle, yet effective handling of fragile crops such as alfalfa or clover. Roller conditioning effectively cracks stems and their wax coating, while preserving the nutritious leaves. This in turn facilitates an even drying pattern and utilization of the forage.  
  • The patented ‘SuperFloat’ flotation suspension system allows for maximum protection. The weight on the ground is only approximately 40-50 kg on each side of the cutter bar, resulting in far less skid wear and stubble damage.

  • Fitted with a non-stop BreakBack system to protect the cutter bar. This integrated system will protect the cutter bar from foreign obstacles.  
  • Quality mowing through hydraulically centre suspended design facilitates a cleaner cut, better protection of the stubble, and in addition an improved fuel economy, as well as less skid wear.
