The multi-purpose rotor loader wagon by PÖTTINGER is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The JUMBO is a high-performance silage wagon, renowned for its maximum efficiency, outstanding operational safety, and superior comfort. It ensures work that is both enjoyable and yields high returns. The new series confidently navigates the harvest season and serves as an ideal companion for transporting various goods even beyond the season.

Then, as now, the principle remains the same:
Whether you’re a farmer or a contractor, investing in premium feed always pays off. For long-term customer loyalty and new acquisitions, focusing on the highest feed quality is equally beneficial for contractors and feed suppliers.

The very first JUMBO was unveiled to the world in 1999, revolutionising high-performance silage harvesting. Back then, it was hailed as “The new dimension of large-capacity silage wagons” and stood as the first and only system to challenge the emerging field chopper

The evolution of the JUMBO loader wagon

25 years of experience and development have also brought many innovations.


The EASY MOVE swing-out knife bank has been designed to enable ergonomic working. 🙌 By swivelling the knife bank out by 90° to the side of the wagon, the knife bank can be cleaned easily and the knives can be changed effortlessly - no bumping your head, no crawling under the loader wagon in a crouched position.
👉 The EASY MOVE knife bank swivelling system was awarded the silver medal for its innovative technology at Agritechnica 1999 and continues to offer the highest level of operating comfort and the simplest maintenance. 🥈

Beater rotors

The beater rotors on the JUMBO were used from the beginning to loosen the crop and ensure consistent unloading so that the forage could be well compacted in the clamp. 🌱🌿 In 1999, the beater rotor driveline was fully enclosed for protection and routed along the right-hand side of the wagon. 🧐 Two heavy-duty angular gearboxes and a chain transmitted power to the beater rotors.
✔Thanks to the next stage of development - smooth start-up of the drive train with a Powerband - the beater rotors can also be engaged under full load. 🙌 The hexagonal cross-section beaters have also been improved over the years, so the V-shaped configuration of the aggressive tines effectively loosens the compacted material during unloading. 👏


A precise and consistent chop is the basis for the best silage quality. AUTOCUT is a fully automatic knife sharpening system that ensures consistent chopping quality throughout a whole working day. 🌱🔪 PÖTTINGER launched the first fully automatic knife sharpening system under the name AUTOCUT in 2009, at the same time as the 1010 series loader wagon. In the same year, this feature was awarded the Silver Medal for Innovation at AGRITECHNICA. Back then, as now, the sharpening sequence is carried out quickly and easily during a short break by simply pressing a few buttons. 👌
✔ Thanks to the permanently sharp knives and the electric-hydraulic drive system, fuel consumption is reduced by up to 15 % and maintenance time is reduced by 45 minutes a day.


The key component on the JUMBO is the loading rotor. As the heart of the machine, its robustness and performance are what stand out. 🙌 The rotor and its gearbox deliver high output chopping and compression. 🌱🔍
At the beginning of the JUMBO era, the rotor with eight rows of tines arranged in a spiral had a diameter of 800 mm. Today, the rotor has a diameter of up to 850 mm and is even more powerful. 💪 The removable tines feature has been discarded on the new rotor and the rotor tines now have optimised geometry. ✔ As a result, increased durability is guaranteed, due to the combination of the large scraper surfaces in the loading chamber and the best possible compaction of over 400 kg/m³, service life has been extended by 25 %.
