The KRONE maize header EasyCollect 600-3 FP, EasyCollect 750-3 FP and EasyCollect
900-3 FP is a header with adapter frame designed exclusively to be attached to CLAAS forage
harvesters of the Jaguar series 8xx and 9xx.
The KRONE maize header EasyCollect 600-3 FP, EasyCollect 750-3 FP, EasyCollect 900-3 FP
is used for harvesting maize and other thick-stalked forage plants independently of rows.
When, e.g. harvesting Sudan grass, modifications to the maize header are required. Details on
the modification options are available from your local specialised dealer.
3.2

–
Processing of crops which are outside the intended use of the machine, see chapter Safety,
“Intended use”
–
Transportation of people
–
Transportation of goods
–
Exceedance of the permitted technical total weight of the carrier vehicle
–
Non-compliance with the safety signs on the machine and safety notices in the operating
instructions
– Performing fault clearance, setting, cleaning, repair and maintenance work contrary to the
information in the operating instructions
– Unauthorised modifications to the machine
– Attachment of unauthorised or unapproved additional equipment
– Use of spare parts which are not KRONE original spare parts
– Stationary operation of the machine
Unauthorised modifications to the machine may affect the properties of the machine or disrupt proper
operation. For this reason, unauthorised modifications will release the manufacturer from any liability for
consequential damage.

Ballasting of forage harvester
Notice
Notice
Notice
To ensure safe and reliable operation of the carrier vehicle with the KRONE
maize header attached, especially when driving on roads, the ballast of the
machine must be distributed evenly. The relevant road traffic regulations must be
observed.
The possibly required rear weight for the forage harvester is not included in the
scope of delivery.
If the header con be combined with forage harvesters of other manufacturers,
depends on their technical usage regulations.
Since there is no standardised interface for mounting devices between headers
and forage harvesters, an adaptation for field operation, road travel etc. is
necessary in particular cases. The operating licence of the forage harvester must
be adjusted or supplemented.
Each header, which is mounted to the forage harvester on public roads, must be
recorded in the vehicle documents. Usually, this requires an additional approval
by an officially recognised expert. Due to different machine weights not all
possible technical combinations of forage harvester and headers can be
approved in Germany. This must be checked on a case-by-case basis.
For some combinations, there are already sample reports which can be made
available on request. If warranty/guarantee is given for the forage harvester,
must be clarified with the supplier of the forage harvester.

securely supported. Close the stop cock at the forage harvester!
• Do not perform any work on the hydraulic system unless it is depressurised. Hydraulic
liquid escaping under high pressure can penetrate through the skin and cause severe
injuries.
• Avoid skin contact with oils, greases, cleaning agents and solvents.
• In the event of injuries or burns caused by oils, cleaning agents or solvents, contact a
physician immediately.
• All other safety notices must also be followed to avoid injuries and accidents.
• After the repair, maintenance, cleaning work or technical modifications are completed,
mount all protective covers and safety devices properly again.

Adjusting the oscillation of the header
The header is able to adapt to the ground contour of the field due to the oscillating movement.
The height of the header is permanently aligned relative to the ground via the sliding skids.
The pendulum springs (1) counteract the oscillating movement of the header and thus dampen
the oscillating movement.
The design of the pendulum spring case with an inner and an outer pipe ensures that during
oscillation, the movement takes place in the respective opposite oblong hole (9).

WARNING!
Risk of injury from incorrect handling of liquids under high pressure. Escaping highpressure liquids may penetrate the skin and cause serious injury.
• Repair work on the hydraulic system may only be performed by authorised KRONE
professional workshops.
• Depressurise the system before disconnecting lines.
• When working on the hydraulic system, wear personal protective equipment (protective
goggles and protective gloves).
• High-pressure liquid that is escaping from a small opening is virtually invisible. Therefore,
use suitable aids when searching for leaks (for example a piece of cardboard).
• If liquid penetrates the skin, consult a doctor immediately. The liquid must be removed
from the body as quickly as possible. Danger of infection! Physicians who are not familiar
with this area must consult appropriate information from a competent medical source.
• Check the hydraulic hoses at regular intervals and replace them if damaged or worn! Only
original KRONE spare parts are permitted to be used as replacement lines as they
correspond to the technical requirements of the manufacturer.
• Before the pressure in the system builds up again, ensure that all line connections are
tight.
