852 Drum

  • The working heart of the 852 is the combination of drum, comb & flywheel – all specifically designed to shred straw bales in all formats.
  • The drum is fitted with spirals of blades and small ‘gripper’ teeth, which take the straw from the bale and feed it evenly into the flywheel chamber.
  • The flywheel can discharge the straw via the 280° swivelling chute at distances up to 15 metres - even feed of the straw onto the flywheel reduces blockage risk and maintains tractor power needed at a minimum level.

Swivelling Chute

  • The Kverneland 852 is fitted as standard with a new swivel chute that offers a 260° rotation of the chute.
  • It allows the operator to accurately direct bedding materials into otherwise inaccessible areas of the building.
  • The new chute is positioned right above the flywheel where the blow is strongest.
  • This give a more efficient distribution of the material and reduces the risk of blockages.
  • The end flap of the swivel chute operates via an electric actuator whilst the 260° rotation of the chute is hydraulically operated.
  • The Kverneland 852 can discharge the straw at a distance of up to 15m. 


  • The 1.55m diameter flywheel of the Kverneland 850 series is fitted with 6 blowing paddles, providing a powerful blow for the most efficient distribution of the material and an excellent cleaning of the flywheel housing.
  • The flywheel does not chop the straw, thus ensuring virtually full length material suitable for bedding of covered yard areas.
  • In combination with the 2-speed gearbox (standard on models 853 and 856) the flywheel can throw straw up to 18.00m (on high speed) or gently feed hay/silage at the side of the machine (at low speed).
  • With the 280° swivel chute discharge straw can be blown up to 15.00m.

Easy Loading of Bales

  • The hydraulically operated rear door fitted to 800 series provides a self loading facility for easy loading of square and round bales.
  • The rear door also offers the ability to carry a second round bale for increased capacity.
  • A bale kit can be fitted to the end of the tailgate to ensure that the bales stay in position during operation.
  • The size of the bale chamber makes it very easy to load the material with a loader - and two round bales can be loaded at the same time - saving time.
