The new MULTILINE series from PÖTTINGER creates true all-rounders. Last year, PÖTTINGER successfully combined the TERRADISC compact disc harrow with the seed drill. This year the same recipe for success has been applied to the SYNKRO stubble cultivator. The result is a cost-effective, high-performance range of equipment that enables sensational flexibility during operation. Used solo or in a combination, the new SYNKRO MULTILINE promises enormous potential.
Stubble cultivators are always in demand: especially in times of high plant protection costs and various legislation on protecting the water table, effective stubble cultivation makes a significant contribution to sustainable cultivation and long-term yield. The MULTILINE concept takes the range of applications offered by the SYNKRO 3030 to a whole new level. Fitted with the 585 rubber-packer roller, the SYNKRO can be combined with a PÖTTINGER seed drill. The lifting system works in the same way as the TERRADISC, which has already gained huge acceptance on the market.
The machine is trailed using a drawbar attached to Cat. III lower linkages, so it is also suitable for smaller tractors. The SYNKRO MULTILINE can be operated conveniently using the most straightforward tractor set-up. Combined with the seed drill, it offers an ideal alternative to conventional mulch seed drills. The weight of the machine is borne by the packer roller. Only the supported load acts on the tractor. This means that it is possible to use the machine without front ballast. Harmful compaction at the headland is greatly reduced as a result: the new SYNKRO MULTILINE features excellent ground conservation technology and sustainability to guarantee long-term yield. The machine is raised using the rubber packer roller and hinged drawbar to provide ground clearance of 250 mm. A double-acting spool valve is required to lift the stubble cultivator/seed drill combination. The SYNKRO 3030 MULTILINE is available with scalloped concave discs, not with tines.
VITASEM A or VITASEM ADD seed drills are installed as standard above the packer roller. This allows the seed drill to be fitted or removed easily - depending on whether the trailed stubble cultivator is to be used on its own or not. As a result, the SYNKRO MULTILINE is a real multi-talent with a wide range of applications.
In the field and during road transport the machine runs on the rubber packer roller, which is divided into 2 sections with a central support. This ensures smooth running and optimum stability during transport. Because the roller is divided it does not leave behind any smear marks at the headland - a feature that is very much appreciated by users.
The critical issue of compaction at headlands is something that the SYNKRO MULTILINE has well under control. In addition to improving seed germination conditions, wear on the road is also minimised to extend the service life of the roller - a true all-rounder on the road and in the field.
The ring spacing on the packer is 12.5 cm. With 24 rows this ensures optimum pre-packing of the seed slot. The SYNKRO MULTILINE concept gives the user a wide range of combination possibilities, more than living up to the demands of the market. As a result, all MULTI-combination capabilities remain open for the future too.
The new edging plate (instead of the edging disc) provides a neat finish between passes, is easily adjustable and can be folded up for road transport.
Non-stop stubble cultivation is also possible thanks to the new trip leg system with horizontal springs on the 1030 series. With a triggering pressure of 500 kg, a high trip clearance of 300 mm and additional shear bolt protection with two leg positions to optimise ground penetration, the machine is well protected.
