Technology

  • The rotor transmission, the heart of the machine

    The rotor transmission, the heart of the machine

    The rotor transmission
    The rotor transmissionLION power harrows guarantee extremely smooth running and high strength. These machines operate reliably even in the hardest conditions and heaviest soil. Just take a look at this impressive technology

    • Thick-walled gear trough made of fine-grained steel – extremely resistant to twisting.
    • Tapered front edge – soil can flow past unrestricted without bulldozing.
    • Large gears feature integrated bearings. Extended inner splines for a secure seat on the rotor shaft.
    • The bearing housings are welded to the central gusset and bottom of trough. An exact spacing between each rotor is guaranteed as a result.
    • Robust tapered roller bearings in forged, single-piece bearing housings.
    • The lower bearings are located as close as possible to the tine carrier, helping to reduce lateral stress.
    • The upper and lower bearings are spaced as far apart as possible to reduce load and minimise stress.
    • The forged, full-width tine carriers are integrated into casing. This offers the best protection against wrapping because the tines deflect the soil away from the gear trough. As a result stones cannot become trapped between the rotors.

    Impressive driveline

    • 1.97″ / 50 mm diameter rotor shafts on LION 103 series.
    • 2.36″ / 60 mm diameter rotor shafts on LION 1002 series.
    • Bearings and gears run submerged in semi-liquid grease.
    • Labyrinth rotor shaft seals.
    • The tines are 0.71″ / 18 mm thick and can be reversed to be used on both edges.
    • 0.59″ / 15 mm thick tines on LION 303.12 / LION 353.14 series.
    • Quick-fix tine replacement system optional.

    Tine mountingsExtended service life is only possible thanks to precision machining and strong construction. At PÖTTINGER this level of high quality goes without saying

    Gear trough and tine mountings

    • The high-strength deep gear trough provides the gearbox with excellent torsional strength.
    • „ Large toothed gears, 1.97″ or 2.36″ / 50 or 60 mm thick rotor shafts with heavy-duty tapered roller bearings and wide bearing spacing ensure durability
    • The deep gear trough is formed from a single piece of steel. The welded central gusset provides maximum stability.
    • The bearing housings are welded into the box section before milling at the CNC machining centre. This ensures exact rotor-to-rotor spacing and guarantees you smooth-running and a long service life.
    • Forged components from the PÖTTINGER hardening centre offer many years of reliability.

    Durable bearings

    Durable bearings
    Durable bearingsThe bearings and gears are sealed and run submerged in semi-liquid grease. The tough bevel gears are made from tempered steel. The lower bearing is located close to the tine carrier. This takes the stress off the bearing and reduces wear. The shaft and bearing are protected by a labyrinth seal, which prevents loss of semi-liquid grease and at the same time ensures no dirt can penetrate.

    Tines hardened completely through

    Tine mountings
    Tine mountingsThe tines are the critical interface to the seedbed. Penetration of the ground is optimised for the most uniform tilth.

    • LION power harrow tines are swept inwards and angled to the rear. As a result the soil near the surface is loosened and crumbled intensively. Larger clods remain lower down.
    • The 18 x 340 mm thick tines are made from hardened boron steel and are heat treated right through the complete cross section.
    • Both tines are seated securely in the recesses in the tine carrier. Two alignment pins keep the tines centered and they are secured using a clamping plate.
    • Only two bolts are needed on each rotor. These can be loosened without chocking the rotors.

    Universal tines for every operation

    Flexible position
    Flexible positionThe tines can be positioned aggressively pointing forwards, or in a trailing position. Either position achieves excellent tilth at seed placement level.Sweeping position – for good crumbling effect at seed level

    • Finer soil is concentrated at the level of the seed. Larger clods and harvest residues remain on the surface to protect against erosion.

    Aggressive position – for breaking up the ground

    • Angled forwards the tine breaks up the soil from underneath for mulch drilling, mixing harvest trash well into the soil.
    • Only possible with the 0.71″ / 18 mm thick tines.

    Robust linkage

    • The linkage is widely supported. Double-sided Category 2 and 3 free swinging lower linkage and three position adjustment are designed to bring the power harrow as close as possible to the tractor.

    Gearbox

    Gearbox versions

    LION 253 CLASSIC, LION 303 CLASSIC, LION 303.12 CLASSIC

    Straightforward fixed-speed gearbox rated up to 140 hp. The PTO shaft is kept at a minimal angle thanks to the input shaft being placed well back. Rear PTO shaft is not available on these models.

    Levelling Board

    Levelling Board
    Levelling BoardThe rear levelling board is standard and is set automatically with the depth of the rear roller – no readjustment is necessary. Consistent distance from the tines over the full working depth range thanks to linear guides on frame.

    • Initial depth set using pin-in-hole adjustment.
    • This is easily accessible from the side.

    The front levelling board (optional) is identical to the rear board.

    Field-proven rear rollers

    • Conveniently the scrapers can be adjusted from a central point as well as individually.
    • A POTTINGER seed drill can be mounted directly to the rear roller and top link. The result is the seed drill and roller work as one follow ground contour changes exactly. Closely mounted to the roller scraper bar keeps overall length to a minimum.
    • Coated hard wearing scrapers are standard on 19.68″ / 500 and 21.65″ / 550 mm tooth-packer roller, crumbling-packer roller, pack ring roller and rubber packer roller.

    • VITASEM and AEROSEM seed drills from PÖTTINGER can easily be mounted.
    • The centre of gravity is in front of the rear roller – very close to the tractor. The additional weight of the seed drill on the roller provides even better consolidating effect for the seedbed. The gap between the coulter rail and the rear roller is minimised to form a compact unit.
    • The piggy-back drill is mounted on the packer roller and guided by the top link using a parallelogram so the packer and seed drill form a single unit. This enables the working depth of the power harrow to be changed by adjusting the roller without having to correct the seed drill top link.

    Rear rollers

    Cage roller

    Cage roller
    Cage rollerThe ideal roller for dealing with dry, non-sticky soils. The roller is fitted with strong rods for optimal compression.Diameter: 420 mm, 8 bars

    Diameter: 540 mm, 11 bars

    Toothed packer roller

    Toothed packer roller
    Toothed packer rollerThis roller is suitable for all types of soil. The roller leaves behind an optimum, re-packed seedbed with loose, fine soil at seed level. The scrapers are located just above surface level. That is why no earth clods can be lifted away, even in wet conditions, and a perfect capillary structure remains intact for optimum germination. The scrapers can be adjusted centrally and individually. They can simply be pivoted away for cleaning. The hardened scraper plates are reversible for double the service life. Roller diameter: 16.5″, 19.7″ and 21.7″ / 420, 500 and 550 mm. The teeth are hardened right through. Case-hardened scrapers are also available.

    Crumbling packer roller

    Crumbling packer roller
    Crumbling packer rollerThe teeth are offset at an angle to the left and right. This roller is especially suitable for heavy, clay soils. The result is a deep packing effect with loose crumbling effect just under the surface. Coated scrapers (standard) prevent soil sticking to the roller.Diameter: 525 mm

    Pack ring roller

    Pack ring roller
    Pack ring rollerThe packer rings are fully enclosed and have a diameter of 21.7″ / 550 mm with 8 rings per metre of working width. Due to the small hub diameter, the scrapers do not need to contact the roller or be adjusted. The roller produces a corrugated consolidation effect to promote water absorption and allow the soil to breathe. Ideal for stony, damp conditions and heavy organic residues. Harvest residues remain on the surface of the soil and protect the soil against drying out. Case-hardened scrapers are standard.

    Prism packer roller

    Prism packer roller
    Prism packer rollerThe Prism rings are spaced at 12.5 mm or 5.9 inch. This roller handles all operating conditions, including stony ground and larger quantities of harvest trash. The striped formation of re-consolidation promotes water absorption and breathability of the soil that is subject to less compaction in the gap between the rings. Coated scrapers are standard and help prevent soil sticking to the roller.

    Rubber packer roller

    Rubber packer roller
    Rubber packer rollerThis roller is ideal for widely varied ground conditions. Especially for use with trailed implements where the load-bearing capacity of other rollers is near the limit. A diameter of 585 mm and the special profiling allows the soil to be compacted in rows. Coated scrapers (standard) prevent soil sticking to the roller.
