FOX compact combinations are not only impressive when operated solo but also show their strengths in combination with all PÖTTINGER implement mounted seed drills. You can use your FOX compact combination together with VITASEM, AEROSEM or TEGOSEM. Mounting and removing the drill using the rear roller is quick and easy, without the need for tools.
1 - The short headstock has lugs for the lower linkages mounted on bars that can be slid into three different positions.
2 - In addition, two different top link positions make it easy to connect up and adapt to any tractor.
This lightweight linkage-mounted machine is ideal for use in light to medium soils with low volumes of harvest residues. Combined with a seed drill, the FOX compact combination demonstrates yet another talent.
Mounting of the seed drills on the rear roller is unique and has further advantages:
The additional weight of the seed drill is carried entirely by the rear roller.
The centre of gravity of the combination unit is located close to the tractor.
The FOX short combination can, for example, move upwards to ride over large stones - independently of the seed drill.
The seed placement depth is not influenced by changing the working depth on the compact combination.
Alternatively, the seed drill can be lifted up using HYDROLIFT.
Combined with a PÖTTINGER seed drill, this implement becomes a cost-effective 3-point-mounted seed drill combination.
Or use it on its own to incorporate harvest residues into the soil - you'll be impressed with what your FOX compact combination can do.
PÖTTINGER set two key objectives when developing the FOX compact combination.
The machine is designed for the lightest possible weight. At the same time, all technical requirements for trouble-free operation have been fulfilled.
The centre of gravity of the machine is positioned perfectly in combination with a mounted or semi-mounted seed drill.
When the seed hopper is full, the centre of gravity situation can change quickly. That is why PÖTTINGER focussed on compact design during development. The influence of the seed hopper is relatively small in comparison. This results in a less weight off the front axle even when the seed hopper is full.
On AEROSEM seed drills the centre of gravity is in front of the rear roller.
On VITASEM models, the centre of gravity acts on the front section of the rear roller.

2 - Comparable combinations with seed hopper empty
3 - PÖTTINGER with seed hopper full
4 -Comparable combinations with seed hopper full
The aim of the development was to manufacture all parts that project (far) to the rear, in particular coulters and loading platform, using special materials. PÖTTINGER uses aluminium components like the ones used in the automotive industry. These are technically advanced and have the same capability as steel.
For further weight optimisation, levelling tines can be dispensed with, depending on the type of coulter.
