The pneumatic jockey wheels (15x6.0-6) touch the ground at the point of tine contact and guide the pick-up perfectly over every undulation. Trailed jockey wheels (16x6.5-8) are optional. The pick-up is raised hydraulically and switches off automatically. The pick-up is height-adjustable for straightforward adaptation to differing operating conditions. Suspension springs also alleviate the pick-up weight so less pressure is exerted on the ground. A wind guard with swath roller ensures perfect forage flow even when loading at speed and with short and wet crop (swath roller optional).
Clean base forage has a high value. Farmers confirm that only PÖTTINGER's controlled pick-up system manages that. High loading speeds require a reliable and powerful pick-up. Only a clean crop can guarantee trouble-free fermentation for high quality silage. Ground tracking and careful crop pick-up have been tested by PÖTTINGER in numerous trials. The result: a unique pick-up system with precision-engineered details for the best forage quality.
The wide pick-up delivers incredible performance even with heavy or irregular swaths.
When the pick-up is raised it switches off automatically with the loading rotor.
Two jointed support arms ensure the pick-up has complete freedom of movement.
200 mm of sideways movement for extremely bumpy ground.
The pick-up features five tine arms and Super-C steel tines. The central metal support disc provides a high level of strength. The narrow tine spacing of 57 mm means that the forage is collected reliably even at high driving speeds.
Tempered transfer plates filter contamination out of the forage. This protects the chopping unit.
The pick-up is controlled from one end by a cam track made of steel with a solid centre. The cam rollers with twin deep-grooved ball bearings are heavy duty designed for high quantities of forage. and an inspection cap is integrated into the housing.
