High forage quality, high performance and at the same time the smoothest running rotor-type loader wagon on the market - all these advantages are combined in the new lighthouse of the PÖTTINGER loader wagon range: FARO.
Perfect ground tracking and optimised forage flow
The proven 6-row floating pick-up with cam track at both ends ensures perfect ground tracking and clean forage as a result. New developments - now available on the FARO - are the wind guard with swath roller for optimised forage flow and an additional tracking roller. This is positioned behind the pick-up to improve pick-up guidance. The parallelogram tracking roller mounting that can be adjusted independently of the front jockey wheels is unique. This guarantees a one hundred percent float function. The tracking roller can be set up to 50 mm higher. This system excels in very wet operating conditions with deep tractor wheel marks: no sinking into wheel marks and precise height control in all situations. The raw ash content of the forage is greatly reduced as a result. Consequently, clean forage promotes higher milk yield to increase success. This unique technology (available as an option) is now successfully in action on all PÖTTINGER rotor-type loader wagons.
Driveline and rotor deliver pure performance
The new FARO features a HEAVY DUTY single-stage incoming gear unit. The rotor is driven by a high strength 1½ inch simplex roller chain. On loader wagons fitted with discharge beaters, only the pick-up switches off. Power is supplied by a wide-angle PTO shaft protected to 1,600 Nm. This means that the new FARO has around 14 percent more drive power with a corresponding increase in capacity. The automatic chain lubrication system minimises maintenance requirements.
FARO 4010 L / D COMBILINE
The dual-function front flap enables a rapid change between loading mode and transport mode: The forage compression flap is controlled electro-hydraulically from the terminal to bring it into the desired position. The front panel of the wagon has been redesigned to provide a good view into the loading chamber from the tractor. The automatic loading system has two measuring points.
A feature unique to PÖTTINGER: Compression is adjustable via pressure springs to ideally match the power of the tractor.
The COMBILINE bodywork features high-strength, full-length panels without extension bars. Roof ropes with rear tarpaulin are available as an option: for optimum crop containment, for loading hay and straw, and as an option for increasing loader wagon capacity by up to 3 m3. With the new slanted mudguards, there is no chance of any crop material getting caught. The benefits are clear to see: Nothing is lost during transport and the road and loader wagon stay clean.
Unloading made easy
The D wagon tailgate is implemented as a multifunctional rear flap. Three position are possible:
- Normal unloading with tailgate wide open
- Fine discharge for controlled unloading
- Cross-conveyor mode
Chassis and tyres
The FARO 4010 L / D COMBILINE is equipped as standard with a 15 tonne (13 + 2) parabolic spring chassis and 560/45 R22.5 tyres.
The L version is operated as standard using the Direct Control terminal; the D version uses POWER CONTROL. Both versions are also available with POWER CONTROL Wireless or the CCI terminal.
PÖTTINGER has yet again reinforced its reputation as the global leader in loader wagon technology, offering more than 50 models of loader wagon, each designed for specific customer needs.
