TOP 842 C: The new large centre-swath twin rotor rake for professional operators

PÖTTINGER has added the new TOP 842 C centre-swath twin rotor rake to the top end of its successful range of centre-swath rakes

The new model guarantees high productivity, the best ground tracking and excellent manoeuvrability. Featuring an adjustable working width between 7.7 and 8.4 m, the TOP 842 C is the high-performance centre-swath twin rotor rake for professionals.

The neat headstock features a yoke connection to the tractor lower linkage equipped with a practical PTO shaft holder and neat routing of hydraulic hoses to the tractor. The TOP 842 C yoke type headstock allows a turning angle of 73 degrees to guarantee excellent manoeuvrability. 

A rotor diameter of 3.70 m and 13 tine arms per rotor, the TOPTECH PLUS rotor unit combines proven technology with the latest innovations: On the TOP 842 C PÖTTINGER offers an adjustable cam track with a large diameter of 420 mm and a tine arm bearing spacing of 700 mm. The tine arms are easy to replace using just two bolts. The new rotor unit guarantees great output, strength and reliability at the same time as ease of maintenance. Despite the impressive rotor diameter, the transport height remains below 4 m without having to remove any of the tine arms. Using the hydraulic working width adjustment system, the two rotor units are moved into the correct position before folding ready for transport. Both rotor units are also locked in the transport position. 

As a professional users expects marker boards, lighting and mudguards are provided as standard equipment, and with wide 340/55-16 tyres safe and rapid transport is guaranteed. 

PÖTTINGER offers a perfect choice of rotor chassis: a 5-wheel chassis per rotor with or without MULTITAST jockey wheel. The unique proven PÖTTINGER MULTITAST jockey wheel system delivers the best ground tracking and as a result lower contamination in the forage. As demonstrated in the DLG Focus test, a reduction of up to 25 percent raw ash can be achieved by using the MULTITAST system.

 

 

Operating the rake could not be easier: it is raised using one single-acting connection and one double-acting connection is needed for adjusting the working width. As an option, a flow splitter and individual rotor lifting system with convenient hydraulic interlock catches are also available.
