RADIUM 45 & 50
The KAWECO RADIUM silage wagons are a proven concept. Over the year, over 1,500 silage wagons have been produced in Zevenaar, which all found their way with grass and corn cutters across Europe. Their extremely sturdy and stable build, based on its origin as a corn silage wagon, makes the RADIUM wagons unique.
The RADIUM silage wagons are available in 4 types:
- 2-axle RADIUM 45, 50 and 55 series
- 3-axle RADIUM 60 series

The RADIUM 45 and 50 all come with a boogie-suspended undercarriage, with a lagging-drive rear axle. As an option, hydraulic control can be provided. The suspension ensures that high peak loads are compensated for and that these are not passed on to the chassis and the superstructure. Even on the grass of corn silages the undercarriage provides great stability of the wagon. The driven axles ensure a little damage as possible to soil texture, and tyre wear is significantly reduced as well. The drawbar of the RADIUM 45 and 50 come with a suspension of rubber bellows; as an option, the wagon can be equipped with hydraulic drawbar suspension.
The undercarriage consists of two stable and sturdy UNP longitudinal beams onto which all the essential components are welded. This construction method guarantees maximum strength during the severe conditions of the corn harvest. By means of twist locks, the superstructure can easily be attached to the undercarriage, and torque is hardly transferred from the chassis to the superstructure.
The RADIUM was the first silage wagon with a conical superstructure: the rear is 6 cm wider than the front. This guarantees a good unloading process, no matter which silage product has to be unloaded. The conveyor floor, chains and side walls are all galvanizes for the longest possible reliable life.
The front wall of the silage has been made from a grid plate, so that driver has a perfect view of the loading process of the wagon. The top part of the front wall can be lowered hydraulically, which makes the loading easier during the mowing of a new corn field. An alternative solution for the fast and easy mowing of a new corn field is the tipping RADIUM series; this version makes it easy to follow the chipper backwards.
The tailgate has mechanical transport protection to ensure safe transport. Hydraulic cylinders first lift the tailgate vertically so that it is released, after which it can be opened.
All RADIUM silage wagons are equipped with 4 strong and durable belts that are driven by a central drive in the middle of the transport floor. The belt and central drive make for easy, fast and reliable unloading. The no-maintenance floor belt is placed between the chassis and the superstructure, so that it is protected optimally. Wagons without silage beaters have a hydraulic drive, wagons with silage beaters are equipped with a mechanical drive. The drive housing is protected by a sturdy protective hood. The silage beaters are also mechanically driven and they are linked through a chain transmission. Automatic chain tensioners ensure the perfect chain tension at all times.
The RADIUM silage wagons can also be fitted out with silage beaters, which ensure an equal distribution of the silage product over your silo. Thanks to the equal distribution over the complete length of your silo, you will need less time to level the silo with the shovel/tractor. This results in a higher silage quality and a higher capacity of your chipper.
Thanks to the very stable construction method of the undercarriage your RADIUM can be equipped with driven axles. In the most extreme cases up to 9,000 additional tractive power can be transferred to the chassis.
Both a mechanical and a hydraulic drive are possible. The mechanical drive will provide tractive power in all conditions, and will continue to run for as long as the tractor provides power. It is also possible to realize a longitudinal or cross barrier. To guarantee the safety of the system and the driver, KAWECO uses a coupling that can be switched on and off. This ensures that in any situation the drive can be uncoupled.
The hydraulic drive uses special hub motors that are driven directly during road transport. This reduced the resistance and as such the fuel consumption during transport. In addition, a hydraulic drive offers fully stepless regulation, to a maximum speed of approx. 12 km/h, depending on the wheel height.
Whichever drive option you choose, the savings will amaze you. Less fuel consumption thanks to a more balances distribution of power, both in heavier conditions in the field and on the silage. No additional tow tractors are necessary in case of heavier conditions in field or higher silos. Unloading on the silage at all times, which means no redundant silage will have to shoved against the silo, leaving you with more time for the distribution and levelling of the silos.
