Nowt up with a Krone, currently running one ourselves. Built well enough! It is a heavy beast with conditioner so make sure you’ve a decent tractor up front. We get on well with ours. Like you it was between Claas and Krone for me I have a good dealer local so that swayed the decision, I would however have gone for JD/Kuhn above all others had they folded better in transport. But narrow lanes and a front mower meant they were a no go.
Run a KV here very impressed with it apart from the stickers. Out of your two options I would go Claas everytime. I no several people who are very rough on kit that I wouldn't even lend a spade to but they cant seam to break their claas kit!
We run a 10' krone at the back with a 10' krone up the front as well. I like them....well built, clean cut, no belts or chain to the conditioner. Has the safe inside where the roll pins breaks and spins the disc out the way if you hit something... never have yet....
Always see krone mentioned as heavy on here but it appears to be the same weight as the pottinger, slightly lighter than the kverneland and Khun and a lot lighter than the McHale. All with conditioners.
Is it balanced badly on the tractor or have i just got my weights wrong?
Have operated krone front and rear mowers this last 3yrs on T7 210 and have found them v satisfactory giving no bother at all probably cut about 2000 + acres also running class which have done equally well except would shear occasional bolts
