Technology

  • Pick-up

    Pick-up with maximum capacity

    A controlled floating pick-up

    The PÖTTINGER pick-up is 2.05 m wide (standard MASTER) or 2.30 m wide (standard PRO) and is controlled from both ends by steel cam tracks. The tines are slightly trailing to sweep in a controlled arc and adapt ideally to contours. Clean forage is guaranteed.

    The fully active tine length up to the control point ensures the forage is transferred to the rotor perfectly.

    Combined with the reduced speed of the rotor, the forage is not dragged but fed actively into the rotor.

    Five controlled rows of tines ensure that crop is collected reliably at high capacity, even while driving at high speeds in difficult harvest conditions.

    • Jockey wheels can easily be height-adjusted.
    • Pick-up float function with 8 settings for flexibility in straw.
    • Hold-down roller with a diameter of 200 mm and optimised transfer rods for highest rate of intake.

    Two pick-up widths

    Five rows of controlled tines.

    IMPRESS MASTER

    2.05 m, with fixed jockey wheels / optional 2.30 m with trailing jockey wheels.

    IMPRESS PRO

    2.30 m with trailed jockey wheels.

    Best ground tracking – Clean forage

    Ground adaptation

    The suspension point in the middle of the pick-up and two jointed support arms ensure the pick-up has complete freedom of movement with a unique vertical travel of 120 mm at the tines. To ensure perfect ground tracking and cornering, the 16 x 6.5-8 jockey wheels can be adjusted to ensure they make contact with the ground on precisely the same line as the tines.

    Perfect forage flow

    Forage flow

    A swath roller with crop transfer rods guarantees perfect forage flow in every type of crop, even at high speed.

    Two cross conveyor augers on each side ensure optimum feeding. Especially with dry material, these actively convey large volumes for enormous intake capacity.

  • LIFTUP rotor

    Living agricultural technology

    As experts, we at PÖTTINGER face the challenges you find in the field every day.

    Tangential crop flow

    The bale starts turning reliably in all operating conditions. Regardless of whether in wet or dry conditions, whether for straw, hay or silage – here is one machine for all operating conditions.

    32 knives

    16 knives

    Patented spiral configuration

    The bale chamber is fed uniformly across the whole width. This greatly reduces any weaving needed to produce perfectly shaped bales.

    Pull-out EASY MOVE knife bank

    Agriculture needs straightforward operations. LIFTUP technology places the chopping system above the rotor. The higher the number of knives, the greater the importance the ease of maintenance becomes.

    Maintenance-friendly

    With the IMPRESS, maintenance is straightforward and simple. Another innovation is the use of TWIN BLADE reversible knives, which provide double the service life. Now it is no longer necessary to sharpen knives during a days work.

    The perfect flow – unique crop flow

    IMPRESS crop flow profile

    Literally redefining the crop flow into the baler has brought about many positive advantages: Firstly, the new LIFTUP technology enables a natural flow of crop, so that the forage enters the bale chamber tangentially at an ideal angle. The long transfer throat ensures excellent mixing of the crop. This helps the bale retain its shape even when handled multiple time.

    • Tangential crop flow into bale chamber for a perfect start to the bale.
    • Two starter rollers above and below the throat.
    • The rotor has seven rows of tines arranged in a spiral and a diameter of 650 mm.
    • The loading rotor is mounted on self-aligning ball bearings at both ends.

    Cleaning rotor

    Any material that does fall through is fed back into the flow by the cleaning rotor (1). This is a unique design that solves the problem of disintegration of material with a higher number of knives. The result is a high baling performance with very low disintegration losses.

    • Any disintegrated material is fed back via the cleaning rotor into the flow of crop (2).

  • FLEXCUT 32

    Top-mounted short chop system

    Short chop system

    Short chopped length

    Loader wagon chopping quality now available on round balers 36 mm short chop with 32 knives

    The new, pull-out FLEXCUT 32 short chop system features 32 TWINBLADE reversible knives provides a theoretical chopped length of 1.42″ / 36 mm across the entire rotor width.

    PÖTTINGER, the world leader in loader wagons, has thus managed to integrate loader wagon chop quality into a round baler for the first time. Short chop not just for silage, but also for hay and straw. That is unique.

    IMPRESS MASTER models 16 knives, knife spacing 72 mm

    Advantages of the IMPRESS chopping system

    • NONSTOP individual knife protection system.
    • Variable knife group switching offers more flexibility.
    • TWIN BLADE knives – double the service life and replacements are always on-board.

    The knives are produced from hardened tool steel and their pressed serrated edge ensures a precise chop.

    Flexible chopping system floor

    Easy relief of blockages

    If a blockage occurs, the cross section of the throat can be increased temporarily by lowering the chopping system floor vertically (1). This allows the blockage to clear easily and effortlessly.

    Different chopping configurations

    PRO 0 – 16 / 16 / 32 knives

    MASTER 0 – 16 / 16 knives

    Up to 16 knives can be disengaged on the knife bank (MASTER and PRO) to create different chopping configurations. These are always active when the knife bank is swung back in. The knives on the shafts A and B can be pivoted either in or out.

    Variable knife group switching

    Number of knives on the knife bank

    PRO 0 – 16 knives
    MASTER 0 – 16 knives

    On the square cross-section of the interlock shaft, the knife groups A and B are engaged and disengaged using a lever.

    Shaft A

    PRO 0 – 16 knives
    MASTER 0 – 8 knives

    Shaft B

    PRO 16 knives
    MASTER 0 – 8 knives

  • EASY MOVE now available on round balers - unique system

    Patented EASY MOVE system

    EASY MOVE – knife bank system that pulls out from the side

    EASY MOVE – safe and convenient

    The IMPRESS models feature an EASY MOVE knife bank system that pulls out from the side. This offers the highest level of safety and convenience; maintenance takes place at workbench height outside the bale chamber, away from the hazardous area of the round baler. The higher the number of knives, the greater the importance the ease of maintenance becomes. The PÖTTINGER IMPRESS provides an ingenious and convenient solution.

    It’s so easy with an IMPRESS

    • Lower the pick-up and swing out the chopping system hydraulically.
    • Remove cylinder, release knife bank and pull out.
    • Rotate the knife shaft. The knife bank is secured in its outer position and at the same time the knives are released centrally.

    Safe, convenient and time saving

    • The knives can be reversed or replaced quickly and easily.
    • Rotate the knife shaft back again to lock them in place. The knife bank is now ready to be pushed back in.
    • Push in the knife bank, secure, attach cylinder, swing chopping system back in – job done!

  • Net wrapping

    IMPRESS net wrapping

     

    The bales are wrapped tightly in the set number of layers of net. The net binding system also boasts several special features: Using a feeder plate, the net wrap is fed reliably into the bale chamber. The net wrap is propelled into the bale chamber quickly.

    When the moveable net wrap feeder unit moves into the chamber, the net wrap brake is deactivated. As soon as the net wrap enters the bale chamber, the net wrap brake is applied so that the net wrap is tensioned and wraps tightly right from the beginning.

    • Maximum net wrap width 1.30 m, diameter up to 31 cm.
    • Spare net wrap roll holders are located behind the covers on each side.

    Changing the roll of net wrap

    Pull back the tracking roller to activate the brake so that the tensioning block can be unbolted.

    IMPRESS MASTER
    Start net wrapping manually or in automatic mode, adapting to bale diameter.

    IMPRESS PRO

    • Start net wrapping manually or in automatic mode, adapting to bale diameter.
    • Automatic ISO system for speed-dependent wrapping start and adjustable binding delay.

    Automatic pick-up lift
    As soon as the “full signal” sounds, the pick-up is automatically raised.

  • Drawbar / Chassis / Maintenance

    Reliable operation

    Two starter rollers above and below the throat.

    Our customers put their trust in our reliability The bale chamber has two starter rollers above and below the throat to make sure the bale is formed reliably in every situation. All the rollers in the bale chamber are designed for the highest pressures to ensure the greatest reliability.

    Bale width 1.20 m, bale diameter 1.25 m

    The fixed chamber on the F models has 18 chain-driven rollers to form uniform, high-stability bales. The material to be baled is compressed until the pressure on the tailgate sensor reaches the pressure set at the terminal. Binding takes place automatically or at the touch of a button, depending on the setting.

    The front seven rollers make sure the bale rotates in every situation, even with straw.

    • Two starter rollers above and below the throat. (1)
    • Five drive rollers with a wall thickness of 4.5 mm at the front, ensure the highest drive power for really compact bales. (2)
    • Eight rollers with a wall thickness of 3.5 mm in the tailgate to control bale shape, hydraulic tailgate designed for the highest baling pressures. (3)
    • Heavy duty self-aligning bearings with a diameter of 50 mm.
