ALPINHIT 6.6 tedder
Performance and smooth operation in perfect unison
The new ALPINHIT 6.6 tedder
With the new ALPINHIT 6.6 Pöttinger extends its product range upwards with a 6-rotor tedder with a small rotor diameter of 1.30 m and a working width of 5.75 m. As a result the agricultural machine manufacturer has managed to bring together optimum ground following, best spreading quality and high performance in one machine. The demands of working in the mountains are now met in full when teamed up with more and more powerful self propelled implement carriers. Despite increased performance this machine is still lightweight: thanks to the optimised lightweigth construction in combination with aluminium guards, the ALPINHIT 6.6 weighs in at just 520 kg. Five tine arms per rotor and offset tine lengths ensure excellent spreading quality. Thanks to the three-fold angle bolt adjustment on each rotor support, it is possible to rapidly adapt to changing forage types and crop quantities. The 15 x 6.00-6 tyres ensure the rotor chassis rolls smoothly. For fenceline work, all six wheels can easily be positioned by hand.
In spite of the wide working width and six rotors, the product design engineers wanted the machine to be compact. With a parking height of less than 3 m the ALPINHIT 6.6 can be stowed neatly away virtually anywhere.
The headstock now features a slot instead of a chain. Customers now have three top linkage positions available and can operate with a rigid top linkage and jockey wheels (optional equipment). A single interlock latch guarantees safe transport even at high speeds.
The pivoting headstock offers smooth running and manoeuvrability on slopes while the shock absorbing struts fitted as standard ensure optimum centring and soft-start lifting in all situations. Extra ground clearance and ease of operation at headlands is provided by the installation of the new Liftmatic. The cylinders on the outer rotors are automatically locked during lifting so that the tedder is lifted upwards in a straight position. This has a decisive advantage when using compact mountain tractors with a low overall height. This practically eliminates the risk of tines striking the ground. Yet another innovative way Pöttinger helps to harvest crop carefully.
