The Pöttinger series of Terrasem mulch seed drills now has the capacity to directly fertilise.
The TOP 852 C s-line is a double windrower with central swath placement that offers plenty of space for the swath: a rotor lifting system with the axle inside the arc of the rotor (steered axle) provides real ‘jet effect’ for a ground clearance of around 60cm.
The company says this provides a clearance about 30% higher than any other equipment available on the market.
The rotors are lifted upwards at an angle to the rear to guarantee sufficient swath clearance at the headland, which enables harvesting machinery in the next pass to achieve higher performance because the swaths are intact and can be picked up more efficiently.
Best forage quality is achieved thanks to ground hugging provided by a cardan shaft with a pivot angle of plus/minus 5 degrees and the proven Pöttinger Multitast ground hugging wheel.
Although the rotor diameter is 3.7m (with 13 tine arms) the transport height is below 4m, without having to remove the tine arms. The side guard pivots back hydraulically.
The control system includes hydraulic rake height adjustment – individually or together – as well as an option for electro-hydraulic individual rotor lifting for working with just one rotor.
