Founded in Germany in 1906 and now operating globally, Krone’s family-run business combines ‘old fashioned’ values of quality and service with innovative engineering and attention to detail.
Because Krone has specialised in forage harvesting equipment for over 20 years, its machines are designed to meet the precise needs of its customers.
The company’s UK headquarters, just outside Leeds, boasts over 8,000 line-items in stock, totalling over £2m, and with easy access to the country’s major road network essential parts can be available within hours. That’s backed up by 40,000 stock items available from the German HQ.
Krone is an industry leader in the hay and forage harvesting sector, with an extensive product range including mowers, tedders, rakes, forage wagons, round balers, large square balers and self propelled mowers and forage harvesters. These include:
- Mowers (AM, EasyCut & BiG M)
Front mounted, rear mounted, trailed, butterfly and BiG M self propelled mowers with working widths from 2m to 15m are available from Krone, with or without a conditioner. All our mowers are disc driven with quick fit blades and our EasyCut range of mowers feature ‘SafeCut’ (mower bed protection from foreign objects).
