KP-4 is specially engineered fiber hemp cutting machine which can work on extremely high speed up to 25 km/h (16 mph). Efficiency is much higher compared to conventional and expensive forage harvesters. KP-4 has 4 harvester blades distanced in 60 cm (2 ft). Quantity of harvester blades and distance can be changed due to requirements of fiber hemp processing factory. Blades are used from German manufacturing company "Schumacher".
