The roller conditioner is especially suitable for alfalfa and clovers due to its precision conditioning capabilities. The helix shape angular groove profile has a high bending and squeezing effect and guarantees perfect forage transfer from the cutter bar.
The rollers inter-mesh to uniformly crimp the stalks and produce a uniform blanket of forage. Roller spacing is variable thanks to the height-adjustable upper roller. The conditioner pressure can be adjusted on both sides using a hand crank. If foreign objects enter between the rollers, the gap can open by up to 120 mm.
Adjustable swath doors ensure airy and uniform swath formation.
Adjustable swath doors can be used either for a wide spread blanket or to form a swath, depending on individual requirements.
The Polyurethane profile is vulcanised onto the robust central tube of the roller The outer diameter is 200 mm. The conditioner profile is tougher than rubber and therefore particularly resistant to wear.
Power is transmitted from the cutter bar gearbox to the rotor by V-belts with a spring-loaded belt tensioner. Both rollers are driven synchronously by a swivel gearbox for maximum throughput. This has a robust construction and is designed for the toughest conditions. On NOVACAT T models, a chain drives the two rollers synchronously.
A central greasing point makes servicing easier.
