The combination of a tractor with reverse drive and the MEX 5 gives you an extremely manoeuvrable, powerful and cost-efficient self-propelled harvester.
Because the flywheel unit is so compact, you have a clear overview of the header and feed system and the centre of gravity is close to the tractor.
PTO speed 1000 rpm, flywheel speed 800 rpm.
Hydraulic side shift system +/- 300 mm
The combination of pre-compression feed rollers, exact chopped length with the flywheel and corn cracker guarantees top quality material. All stalks and leaves are finely-chopped and grains pulverised for effective rumination. MEX forage harvesters - acknowledged the world over as the benchmark for best chopping quality. The huge blowing power of the flywheel ensures trailers are filled up right into the furthest corner.
Flywheel with 10 centrally-adjustable knives, ideal chopping length is quickly set.
High chute (up to 4.80 m) and high blowing power plus coated blowing paddles.
Tungsten-carbide coating on knives and shear bar for smooth and precise chop. The shear bar is also tungsten-carbide coated and reversible.
Mounting and adjustment functions are separate for rapid replacement without affecting setting.
Wear plates in the forager housing can be replaced cost-effectively before damage occurs to housing, important on abrasive soils.
Exceptional quality forage in all harvesting conditions.
Rapid adaptation to new crop: allows conversion to harvest green maize in no time.
Three key components:
Deflector behind each knife.
Adjustable, rasped-surface blowing paddles.
Long, sectioned cracker plate, can easily be replaced with smooth plates.
A uniform and precise chopping action can only be achieved if the crop is heavily compressed before reaching the knives. PÖTTINGER foragers are equipped with four aggressive pre-compression rollers for optimum compaction at the flywheel. This guarantees perfectly chopped material in all operating conditions.
The right chopped has to be quickly and easily adjusted to current operating conditions.
Three different chopped lengths can be quickly set using the three-step belt drive, equipped with hydraulic reversing gear as standard.
Individual overload protection on each driveshaft to the feed rollers.
The PÖTTINGER concept featuring the three-step belt drive system for the pre-compression rollers provides the ideal solution, which includes a reversing gear.
The two upper rollers are spring-loaded to reliably draw in every type of crop.
The 470 mm-wide intake channel is critical to achieve high capacity intake.
The two upper rollers can move completely independently of each other. This ensures continuous compression of the forage right up to the shear bar.
The crop is heavily compressed by the four feed rollers.
Control panel with metal casing and membrane-covered keypad, easy to install with mounting magnet.
Direct control of: Raise / lower angle of header in relation to chassis , Rotate chute, Fold flap, Reverse feed system, Pivot drawbar.
Hydraulic connections required: One single-acting remote with pressure-free return for DIRECT CONTROL (suitable for closed, open or load-sensing hydraulics).
Continuous arc for consistent flow of forage.
Hydraulic chute rotation and flap adjustment. Chute rotation up to 270°.
Chute height 4.80 m for 4.0 m-high transport vehicles.
Can be folded hydraulically for low clearances; no tools required.
Access platform and two cleaning points provided as standard.
The maize header enables you to harvest independently of rows or row spacing. As a result the MEX 5 offers manoeuvrable operation like a self-propelled harvester, either with the maize header or pick-up. The MEX 6 is the flexible trailed forager for maize and grass. Tractors up to 220 hp can therefore be utilized very cost-effectively and logistics are extremely easy to organise between the field and the silo.
Working width 2.0 m (3 rows spaced 0.7 m apart)
The header is mounted so that it can move up and down independently of the forager for best ground tracking.
Lowest working height 135 mm.
Powered by a direct drive system,
the aggressive rings of teeth on the intake drums ensure loss-free feed in even the most challenging harvest conditions.
High ground clearance (580 mm) for road transport and headland turns.
Mechanically-driven feed augers on both sides as standard.
High loading speeds require a reliable and powerful pick-up. The MEX pick-up with six rows of tines delivers impressive performance – even at high forward speeds and in all harvest conditions. Only a clean crop can guarantee trouble-free fermentation for high quality silage.
The wide pick-up guarantees maximum performance, even in difficult harvesting conditions such as in damp and short grass.
The narrow tine spacing means that the forage is collected reliably even at high driving speeds.
The pick-up tines are swept back to prevent damage to the sward, soil contamination and unnecessary wear on the tines.
A height-adjustable windguard with a swath roller and the manoeuvrable auger ensure perfect forage flow even when loading is fast and the crop is short and wet.
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.
Free-wheel clutch for riskless reversing of feed system.
Overload protection together with the feed rollers.
For MEX 5 and MEX 6 with row-independent header as an option for harvesting grass.
This device affords a high level of protection against damage caused through ferrous foreign objects entering the flywheel. If the magnetic field generated in the lower front feed roller is interrupted, the current is switched off causing the relay to close. The feed drive stops and by switching to reverse disgorges the crop along with the tramp metal.
Precise sharpening of the knives takes only a few minutes with the integrated grinding disc. On the MEX 5 the flywheel can be reversed for sharpening.
The header is quickly removed and the feed system simply folded away. Shear bar and feed rollers are easily accessible for cleaning and servicing.
