M380-4 and M420-4

More power, greater comfort and a major upgrade in driver technology are the key benefits delivered by Kellands' new Multidrive M380-4 and M420-4.

The newest additions to the Multidrive fleet, the new M380-4 and M420-4 feature a Tier-4 compliant Cummins diesel engine that delivers a 19% boost in power, a 20% increase in torque and a reduction in fuel consumption of around 8%. It is available in 3.8m and 4.2m wheelbase options.

Operator environment

The Multidrive World Series cab provides the operator with a large, comfortable working environment. The unit is controlled and analysed through the Machine Control Unit (MCU) panel on the right hand side of the operator, with precise fingertip controls for the mounted implement within easy reach.

NEW - Hydraulic cab mounting system with enhanced soundproofing and insulation, improves the working environment by reducing noise by 5dB, lowering vibration and increasing operator comfort.

NEW - An innovative control console with a floating armrest moves with the position of the seat to deliver the best in comfort and precision.

Noise reduction is assisted by an electro-viscous cooling fan which also increases available engine power and improves fuel economy. Lower fan speeds also reduce the amount of dust and pollen pulled into the engine and transmisson cooling pack.

Fast and comfortable

Using a new 225hp Cummins lean-burn diesel engine (Peak 230hp), the Multidrive is powerful, economical and environmentally friendly. Fully compliant with European Tier-4 / Stage IV legislation the new engine will slash emissions by around 90%.

The engine is linked to a ZF Power-shift gearbox, with power transferred to the mechanical drive axles, which are equipped with independent hydraulic brakes. 

NEW - The transmission is now canbus controllled and linked to the engine resulting in smoother gear shifts.

NEW - Air suspension now comes as standard with the front Articul-air system - delivering a safe and comfortable maximum speed of 50km/h, with the ability to carry up to 10 tonnes.

In the field

In the field, the operator can use this power and sure footing to great effect. With 7-mode steering and large diameter wheel gear, the Multidrive offers excellent traction, stability and low ground pressure. This results in crop and soil structure damage being kept to a minimum. With its excellent field of vision and easy to use controls, the Multidrive makes easy work of even the most difficult conditions.

Its Mechanical Drive technology offers best-in-class traction - delivering power to all four wheels simultaneously for better grip and enabling operators to work safely in challenging conditions.

NEW - Improved rear steering with smoother operation, more safety features, greater reliability and more operating modes

NEW - Major increase in engine torque deliver best-in-class traction

Versatility

As well as being able to carry large capacity spray packs, the Multidrive also has the ability to carry a wide range of implements. This results in a machine that can not only spray chemicals, but also apply both liquid and solid fertilisers. Mounting and demounting of the implement is a quick and simple job, demount legs are available as an option and all connections are fitted with quick releases.

Control

The new M380-4 and M420-4 feature multi-functional on-board computer systems and a high-visibility full-colour display with real-time performance and diagnostic information at a glance.

NEW - Joystick with easy-access thumb controls to enable operators to make a smooth changeover between manual and automatic transmission and gives precise control over rear axle steering, cruise control and implements.

NEW - Onboard diagnostics show engine, transmission and machine faults in plain and simple English to assist in fault tracing without the need for specialist laptops and software.

NEW - Driver’s pack features reversing and nose cameras; electric mirrors; and additional bonnet lamps for greater safety and productivity.

NEW - Software system allows operators to finely configure steering and transmission settings to match personal preferences and field conditions – all from the comfort of the cab.

Steering Modes

  • 2 Wheel Steering – For use on the road and in the field, offers precise front wheel steering only. The rear wheels automatically re-align when selecting this option
  • 4 Wheel steering – Selecting 4 wheel steer allows full power front and rear steering, ensuring precise tracking in confined spaces and tight headland turns
  • Delay mode steering – Especially useful for travelling in tramlines, this option allows only the front wheels to steer until a preset angle is reached, only then the rear wheels follow. Allows minor corrections to be made on straights, while maintaining the capability of the machine to perform tight turns
  • Crab steering – This mode is predominantly used for preventing side slip on steep inclines. A secondary use is to provide individual wheel markings to reduce soil compaction on soft ground
  • New - Offset steering mode - delivers better traction and precise control when working on hillsides. Reduces soil compaction when working on soft cultivated ground
  • New - Headland mode - automatically switches from selected steering mode to 4WS for headland turns
