BKE 180



The Kuhn BKE landscape shredder, the standard in the grass shredder range, sets the bar when it comes to maintaining grassy areas such as parks, green spaces and pastures.

The optimized shredding box profile ensures that large volumes of plant residues can be shredded while limiting power consumption. Equipped with a roller positioned very close to the rotor, the machine follows the ground perfectly and achieves improved decomposition. This shredder is also available with two different hitch options for a fixed position behind the tractor or a hydraulic offset for cutting around obstacles. Shredding height can be adjusted by the semi-pivoting roller or wheels.
