The Katana 65 introduces the largest cutting cylinder in the industry with new features in virtually every area designed to improve output, increase efficiency and cut operating costs.

It’s powered by a Mercedes-Benz MTU V8 engine, which is equipped with the latest Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after treatment system and is well proven in forage harvesters.

Tuned specifically to deliver the torque and peak power to match forage harvesting demands, the 15.93 litre capacity engine develops its maximum power of 653hp at a low rated speed of 1,800rpm (ECE R120). It generates its maximum torque of 3,000Nm at a low 1,300rpm, which also helps to reduce fuel consumption. Electronic engine management provides superb control and ensures it always operates at optimum efficiency.

Access for maintenance and servicing is easy thanks to large side doors, which open on parallelogram linkages to reveal the engine and hydraulic system, as well as the two large air filters. Also, the Katana’s unique engine layout provides space for a large maintenance platform between the cooling unit and harvesting elements.
