Technology

  • PÖTTINGER cutter bars

    Quality made in Austria

    Cutter bar

    The heart of PÖTTINGER disc mowers is the cutter bar, proven over thousands of cuts in the field. NOVACAT disc mower cutter bars are developed and built at the company’s main plant in Grieskirchen – a quality product made in Austria. First-class cutting quality, low drag resistance and strength are the trademarks of these cutter bars. Engineered details guarantee you reliable operation and contribute significantly to an extended service life.

    Optimum crop flow – clean forage


    Optimum crop flow

    The rounded, low profile front edge lets the cutter bar glide smoothly over the ground and separates the crop tidily from the sward. The conveyor effect has been improved by the rounded conical surfaces of the mower discs. The crop flows through smoothly and uniformly, maintaining full cutting capacity in all operating conditions. Integrated paddles keep the cutter bar surface clean.

    Perfect cutting quality

    The sleek cutter bar design is only 28 cm deep, perfect for enabling the best possible ground tracking. The mower blades rotate very close to the surface of the cutter bar and the counter knife. The optimised overlap of blade paths ensures a clean and uniform mowing pattern.

    Engineered to impress
    Durable mower discs


    The oval, low profile mower discs are made of hardened fine-grained steel. Quick-change blades make maintenance easy.

    Optional feed cones

    These improve the crop flow and enable swath formation.

    High-strength stub shafts

    High-strength stub shafts

    Stub shafts and bearings

    Heavy-duty bearings

    Durable, twin race tapered bearings with a theoretical bearing spacing of 60 mm are extremely stress-resistant.

    Reliable power transmission

    The cutterbar gear drive runs in a straight line with virtually the same sized gears. There are always two teeth in contact with a tooth width of 20 mm. All gears are hardened and machined for smooth running and a long service life.

    Wear resistant skids

    Wear skid


    High-cut skids


    Wear skid

    Wide skids made from hardened boron steel to resist impact and prevent the build-up of soil. Because the underside of the cutter bar is smooth with contoured skids inside and outside, it protects the sward even on tight corners.

    As an option, you can fit additional wear skids to protect the underside of the cutter bar. The bolted skids can be easily changed if required.

    Optional high-cut skids can be mounted to increase the cutting height from 50 to 120 mm. Their large radius and wide surface area make them especially wear resistant.

    • High-cut skid + 20 mm, the universal skid especially for stony soil.
    • High-cut skid + 40 mm, especially for whole crop.
    • NEW: High-cut skids for the outer pairs of skids.

    Top quality

    Cutter bar manufactured from the best quality steel

    The cutter bar is made from the best quality steel. The metal plate is precision laser-cut and robot-welded before machining at the state-of-the-art CNC machining centre.

    • The blade post is bolted to the mower disc. This can be replaced cost-effectively if required.
    • The counter knife is clamped in place, meaning it is also easy to replace.

    Easy with quick-change blades

    Change blades quickly and easily: Press down the spring clip with the blade changing tool and replace the blade.

    • The blade is locked securely in place by the spring clip.
    • Lengthy, tough operation demands the best blade quality, which is why original PÖTTINGER blades are made from high-quality blade steel.
    • A handy blade box provides space for replacement blades.

    Maintenance-friendly

    Folding guards

    The guards fold away to provide optimum access to the cutter bar.

    Practical modular design

    The bearing hub assembly and fittings are reliably sealed by rubber o-ring seals. The hub assembly can be removed as one unit, while the idler gears are easily removed through the openings – it could not be more straightforward.

  • NOVACAT A9 / A10 - Reliability and durability

    adjustment range of  260 mm

    adjustment range of 260 mm

    The NOVACAT A9 mower combination is a front/rear combination with a fixed working width.

    The NOVACAT A10 mower combination is a front/rear combination with a special cutting width optimisation system. This enables flexible width adjustment to differing operating conditions. The cutting width and mower unit overlap can be optimised on the move for working on slopes, while cornering and on flat areas. The high level of user convenience, ingenious details, wide range of applications, strength and first-class cutting quality make these mower combinations among the most productive in their class.

    Reliable operation in all situations

    Headstock

    A9 mounting

    A carrier frame for combining with a front mower with a working width of 3 m. Working width of 8.92 or 9.18 m with 2 mounting positions. The centre-to-centre spacing of the two mower units is 2.0 m or 2.26 m

    A10 mounting available as an option

    Two main frames are available for use in combination with either a 3 or 3.5 metre wide front mower.

    Hydraulic collision protection system
    NONSTOP LIFT hydraulic collision safety device protects the mower


    Anti-collision device


    NONSTOP LIFT

    NONSTOP LIFT is an innovative technology that offers the best protection to the cutter bar. Fitted to both sides, the collision safety device enables the cutter bar to avoid obstacles efficiently. When triggered, the boom folds backwards on the triangular frame and is simultaneously raised at the front by the gimbal – a three-dimensional collision safety system. (1) The mower avoids impact with the obstruction so that damage to the cutter bar is prevented even at higher driving speeds.

    Extended service life thanks to Y DRIVE

    Drive system

    New generation driveline

    The special Y DRIVE input gearbox utilises bevel cut gears and presents the mower drive shaft on the opposing side to the mower. This has the advantage that longer standard PTO shafts can be used with less of an angle in operation.

    The backlash-free drive line using standard drive shafts has been made possible by locating the overload clutch (1) and freewheel (2) at the gearbox. Integrated fan blades cool the gearbox in operation(3).

    As a result the driveline offers exceptionally smooth operation even when raised at the headland or in the heaviest of crop conditions. This new design extends service life significantly.


    Driveline

    Consistent power transmission

    A constant velocity joint in the inside mower drum provides a stress-free link between the angular gearbox and the cutter bar. The gears are submerged in gear oil.

    Robust technology – long service life

    Bearing

    The heavy duty boom design offers a wide bearing spacing, which carries the cutter bar and provides the optimum in support. The cutter bar is mounted from both ends which protects it against twisting. As a result, the gears and bearings are subjected to less stress for smoother operation and a long service life.

  • NOVACAT A9 / A10 - Efficiency and convenience

    Optimising mowing width for maximum output with the A10

    400 mm offset

    Hydraulic cutting width adjustment

    The hydraulic cylinders integrated into the booms shift the cutter bars by up to 400 mm. As a result, sufficient overlap with the front mower can be set in every situation. Automatic working width adjustment on corners using steering angle sensor on compatible tractors.

    Hydraulic ground pressure system

    Reduced wear and fuel costs

    Optimised ground tracking to protect the sward is a key quality standard at PÖTTINGER. On the NOVACAT A10 mower combination, hydraulic weight alleviation is used to adjust the ground pressure quickly and easily (1). This is carried out via either the POWER CONTROL or ISOBUS from the control terminal. “Floating cut” even on really rough ground – the guarantee for protecting the ground and producing best forage quality. Optimised hydraulic weight alleviation also ensures a considerable reduction in wear and fuel consumption costs.

    Maximum flexibility during operation
    The mower combination is available with swath formers without conditioners, with ED tine-type conditioners and with RCB roller-type conditioners. The right combination for every situation.

    Transport height under 4 m

  • Models with conditioners

    ED tine conditioner


    EXTRA DRY conditioner

    The EXTRA DRY conditioner is a joint development with the Institute of Agricultural Engineering (IMAG-DLO) in Wageningen (Holland) that started in 1997 to prove there is better way. Your forage dries measurably faster thanks to the adjustable conditioning intensity and wide placement.

    V-shaped steel tines of hardened steel guarantee a continuous flow of crop and an extended service life. The tines are mounted on rubber elements in a spiral configuration on the conditioning roller.

    EXTRA DRY drying accelerator
    The tine rotor propels the forage across an adjustable conditioning plate. Adjustable guide vanes distribute the flow of crop over the whole mowed width. The forage is then deposited in a uniform and airy blanket by the wide-spread hood. Pivoting swath plates can be used to form a swath.


    Even more flexibility

    • Power is transmitted from the cutter bar gearbox to the rotor by drive belts with a spring-loaded belt tensioner. If the conditioner is not required, it can be removed.
    • The drive belts are easily detached for removing the conditioner
    • The drive system is reliably protected against contamination.
    • The greasing points are located on the outside for easy access.

    RCB roller conditioner

    Profitable yields in dairy farming are only possible with high-quality base forage. Quality nutrients in the forage increases milk output at the same time as reducing the costs of concentrates. For leafy types of plant, PÖTTINGER offers a proven conditioner with crimping rollers.

    The roller conditioner is especially suitable for lucernes and clovers due to its precision conditioning capabilities. The rollers intermesh to crimp the stalks and produce a uniform blanket of forage. The roller profile is spiral-shaped. Both rollers are driven.

    Reliable and durable

    The rugged central tube has a diameter of 140 mm and a wall thickness of 5.6 mm. The Polyurethane profile is vulcanised onto the central tube of the roller. The outer diameter is 200 mm. The conditioner profiles are harder than rubber and therefore particularly resistant to wear.

    New RCB drive

    • Contamination-free, low-maintenance toothed drive belt on roller conditioner (RCB).
    • The inter-meshing rollers crimp the stalks to produce a uniform blanket of forage.
    • The roller conditioner is especially suitable for alfalfa and all types of clover due to its precision conditioning capabilities.
    • The upper roller is height-adjustable so that the gap between the rollers can be set.
    • The conditioner pressure can be adjusted on both sides via coil spring adjusters.
    • The greasing points are located on the outside for easy access.

  • NOVACAT A10 CF - Swath merging with cross flow auger


    Swath merging without a conditioner

    NOVACAT A10 CF (CROSS FLOW) Swath merging without a conditioner

    With the NOVACAT A10 CF, PÖTTINGER now offers a cost-effective and lightweight system for merging swaths. Its low weight and low power requirement greatly reduce fuel consumption.


    Cost effective system

    With the NOVACAT A10 CF you profit from much lower investment costs for a swath merging system. This innovative solution does not need a conditioner and enables a weight reduction of 15% compared to conventional systems. This means less soil compaction. Thanks to its low power requirement, you save fuel costs.


    Straightforward and flexible

    Because the cross flow auger runs inside a closed casing, all the crop is conveyed to the swath without losses or contamination. A swath curtain is available as an option. It is easy to switch between wide blanket or swath placement by manually opening the cover.

    The cross flow auger accelerates the drying process of the crop – regardless of whether the forage is placed in a wide blanket or in a swath, it is turned over to accelerate drying.

    The hydraulic mower weight alleviation system reduces wear and increases the service life of the machine as a result. In addition, the weight alleviation system reduces the ash content of the forage at the same time as lowering fuel consumption. Overall, the weight alleviation contributes to increased cost effectiveness.

    • Higher cost-effectiveness of the machine.

    Thanks to the integrated conveyor belt monitor, mower blockages due to the cross conveyor belts not being switched on are avoided. An acoustic warning signal indicates that the conveyor belts are not switched on while they are in the working position.

  • PÖTTINGER cutter bars

    Quality made in Austria

    Cutter bar

    The heart of PÖTTINGER disc mowers is the cutter bar, proven over thousands of cuts in the field. NOVACAT disc mower cutter bars are developed and built at the company’s main plant in Grieskirchen – a quality product made in Austria. First-class cutting quality, low drag resistance and strength are the trademarks of these cutter bars. Engineered details guarantee you reliable operation and contribute significantly to an extended service life.

    Optimum crop flow – clean forage

    The rounded, low profile front edge lets the cutter bar glide smoothly over the ground and separates the crop tidily from the sward. The conveyor effect has been improved by the rounded conical surfaces of the mower discs. The crop flows through smoothly and uniformly, maintaining full cutting capacity in all operating conditions. Integrated paddles keep the cutter bar surface clean.

    Perfect cutting quality

    The sleek cutter bar design is only 28 cm deep, perfect for enabling the best possible ground tracking. The mower blades rotate very close to the surface of the cutter bar and the counter knife. The optimised overlap of blade paths ensures a clean and uniform mowing pattern.

    Engineered to impress
    Durable mower discs

    The oval, low profile mower discs are made of hardened fine-grained steel. Quick-change blades make maintenance easy.

    Optional feed cones

    These improve the crop flow and enable swath formation.

    High-strength stub shafts

    Stub shafts and bearings

    Heavy-duty bearings

    Durable, twin race tapered bearings with a theoretical bearing spacing of 60 mm are extremely stress-resistant.

    Reliable power transmission

    The cutterbar gear drive runs in a straight line with virtually the same sized gears. There are always two teeth in contact with a tooth width of 20 mm. All gears are hardened and machined for smooth running and a long service life.

    Wear resistant skids

    High-cut skids

    Wear skid

    Wide skids made from hardened boron steel to resist impact and prevent the build-up of soil. Because the underside of the cutter bar is smooth with contoured skids inside and outside, it protects the sward even on tight corners.

    As an option, you can fit additional wear skids to protect the underside of the cutter bar. The bolted skids can be easily changed if required.

    Optional high-cut skids can be mounted to increase the cutting height from 50 to 120 mm. Their large radius and wide surface area make them especially wear resistant.

    • High-cut skid + 20 mm, the universal skid especially for stony soil.
    • High-cut skid + 40 mm, especially for whole crop.
    • NEW: High-cut skids for the outer pairs of skids.

    Top quality

    Cutter bar manufactured from the best quality steel

    The cutter bar is made from the best quality steel. The metal plate is precision laser-cut and robot-welded before machining at the state-of-the-art CNC machining centre.

    • The blade post is bolted to the mower disc. This can be replaced cost-effectively if required.
    • The counter knife is clamped in place, meaning it is also easy to replace.

    Easy with quick-change blades

    Change blades

    Change blades quickly and easily: Press down the spring clip with the blade changing tool and replace the blade.

    • The blade is locked securely in place by the spring clip.
    • Lengthy, tough operation demands the best blade quality, which is why original PÖTTINGER blades are made from high-quality blade steel.
    • A handy blade box provides space for replacement blades.

    Maintenance-friendly

    Folding guards

    The guards fold away to provide optimum access to the cutter bar.

    Practical modular design

    The bearing hub assembly and fittings are reliably sealed by rubber o-ring seals. The hub assembly can be removed as one unit, while the idler gears are easily removed through the openings – it could not be more straightforward.

  • NOVACAT S10 / S12 - The largest mounted mower combinations

    The NOVACAT S12 with centre pivot suspension is the largest mounted mower combination available on the market. The “fuel saver” gives you a full working width of 11.20 m with a power requirement of just 160 hp and the lowest fuel consumption. The NOVACAT S10 requires as little as 130 hp.

    Advantages at a glance

    NOVACAT S10

    PÖTTINGER sets new standards in terms of productivity and efficiency.

    NOVACAT S12 advantages at a glance:

    • The largest mounted mower combination
    • Highest productivity – up to 13 ha/h
    • Lowest power requirement – from 130 hp / 160 hp
    • Lowest diesel consumption – only 2.0 l/ha
    • Compact transport width – only 2.20 m

    Perfect ground tracking

    Centre pivot mounting

    The centre pivot mounting on the cutter bars provides a travel of +/- 22.5° for perfect ground tracking. At the same time, infinitely adjustable hydraulic weight alleviation ensures optimum ground contact pressure across the entire mowing width. This “floating cut” guarantees excellent ground and crop protection.

    Safe at work

    Anti-collision device

    The hydraulic rear folding system includes a collision protection system.

    50 cm ground clearance

    At the headland, ground clearance is 50 cm. During lifting, the cutter bar is secured using a stabilizer cylinder. This makes it easier to drive over swaths and provides stability during transport.

    Compact during transport

    For transport, the mower can be folded backwards. The front guards then automatically fold up hydraulically. This gives you a narrow transport width of only 2.20 m and a high ground clearance during transport. Lighting is standard equipment.

    Simple operation

    This system is conveniently operated using a double-acting remote valve. Individual unit lifting and the transport position are preselected using a rocker switch.

    25% higher output 25% less diesel

    Despite an impressive working width of 11.20 m, you can operate the NOVACAT S12 tractor mower combination with a 160 hp tractor. As a result you can achieve an output of up to 13 ha/h with a very low fuel consumption averaging just 2 l/ha. In the field, this means up to 25% more output with 25% lower diesel consumption and lower investment costs.

  • NOVACAT S10 / S12 - Convenient to use

    Electrical preselect system

    This system is conveniently operated using a double-acting remote valve. Individual mower lifting is preselected using a rocker switch, likewise the transport position.

  • NOVACAT X8 - Front/rear combination


    Front/rear combination

    As front/rear combination, optimum weight distribution and best performance on slopes are guaranteed. The front-mounted mower can be used independently of the two side mowers. Implementing the whole combination in reverse drive mode provides the best overview of all mowers. High manoeuvrability is ensured for small fields.


    Effective weight alleviation

    Two powerful springs on each mower unit guarantee a “floating cut” and ensure effective weight alleviation over the whole width of the cutter bar. The pressure the cutter bar exerts on the ground can be adjusted quickly without tools.

    Hydraulic ground pressure system
    Optimised ground tracking to protect the sward is a quality standard at PÖTTINGER. The pressure exerted on the ground can be set quickly and easily at the control terminal with this optional hydraulic function. Standard on NOVACAT X8 COLLECTOR.

    Hydraulic collision protection system

    If the mower impacts an obstacle the mower unit can fold back and is brought back automatically into the working position.

    Convenient headland turns
    The lifting cylinders on all three mowers operate independently of the tractor hitch, which does not need to be actuated.

    Compact during transport

    The two side mowers are folded upwards for road transport and the front mower is raised. The transport width of three metres is not exceeded. Lighting is standard equipment. Hydraulic folding side guards are optional on the NOVACAT front mower and combination so you can get ready for transport without leaving the tractor cab. The mechanical transport interlock is operated hydraulically. No lanyard is required.

    Space-saving parking

    For especially compact storage, the mower can be parked on optional parking stands.

  • Models with conditioners

    ED tine conditioner

    EXTRA DRY conditioner

    The EXTRA DRY conditioner is a joint development with the Institute of Agricultural Engineering (IMAG-DLO) in Wageningen (Holland) that started in 1997 to prove there is better way. Your forage dries measurably faster thanks to the adjustable conditioning intensity and wide placement.

    V-shaped steel tines of hardened steel guarantee a continuous flow of crop and an extended service life. The tines are mounted on rubber elements in a spiral configuration on the conditioning roller.


    EXTRA DRY drying accelerator

    The tine rotor propels the forage across an adjustable conditioning plate. Adjustable guide vanes distribute the flow of crop over the whole mowed width. The forage is then deposited in a uniform and airy blanket by the wide-spread hood. Pivoting swath plates can be used to form a swath.


    Even more flexibility

    Power is transmitted from the cutter bar gearbox to the rotor by drive belts with a spring-loaded belt tensioner. If the conditioner is not required, it can be removed.

    • The drive belts are easily detached for removing the conditioner
    • The drive system is reliably protected against contamination.
    • The greasing points are located on the outside for easy access.

    RCB roller conditioner


    Profitable yields in dairy farming are only possible with high-quality base forage. Quality nutrients in the forage increases milk output at the same time as reducing the costs of concentrates. For leafy types of plant, PÖTTINGER offers a proven conditioner with crimping rollers.

    The roller conditioner is especially suitable for lucernes and clovers due to its precision conditioning capabilities. The rollers intermesh to crimp the stalks and produce a uniform blanket of forage. The roller profile is spiral-shaped. Both rollers are driven.


    Reliable and durable

    The rugged central tube has a diameter of 140 mm and a wall thickness of 5.6 mm. The Polyurethane profile is vulcanised onto the central tube of the roller. The outer diameter is 200 mm. The conditioner profiles are harder than rubber and therefore particularly resistant to wear.


    Reliable drive system RCB

    New RCB drive

    • Contamination-free, low-maintenance toothed drive belt on roller conditioner (RCB).
    • The inter-meshing rollers crimp the stalks to produce a uniform blanket of forage.
    • The roller conditioner is especially suitable for alfalfa and all types of clover due to its precision conditioning capabilities.
    • The upper roller is height-adjustable so that the gap between the rollers can be set.
    • The conditioner pressure can be adjusted on both sides via coil spring adjusters.
    • The greasing points are located on the outside for easy access.
