Technology

  • PÖTTINGER cutter bars

    The heart of PÖTTINGER disc mowers is the cutter bar, proven over thousands of cuts in the field. 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. PÖTTINGER guarantees trouble-free downhill mowing, even on steep slopes.

    Perfect cutting quality

    Sleek cutter bar

    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

    Mower discs

    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.

    Stub shaft

    High-strength stub shafts

    The strong stub shafts are bolted to the gears and are thus easy to replace when required.

    Heavy-duty bearings

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

    TRI DRIVE – Optimised gears

    Gear pairs

    Reliable power transmission

    The cutterbar gear drive runs in a straight line with virtually the same sized gears. All gears are hardened and machined for smooth running and a long service life.

    • New gear pairs with the same diameter 39/50
    • Three teeth in contact – better power transmission – softer starting characteristics.
    • New surface on gears ensures smoother running and a reduction in noise level.

    Wear resistant skids


    Skids


    High cut wear skid


    Wear resistant 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 30 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.
    • A handy blade box provides space for replacement bladeThe blade pin is bolted to the mower disc. This can be replaced cost-effectively if required.

    Maintenance-friendly

    Easy access


    Simple design

    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.

  • Mounting and collision safety device

    Hitching up made easy

    Hydraulic lower linkage arm

    The hydraulic lower linkage arm makes it easy for you to hitch up without having to adjust the linkage struts on the tractor. This ensures you always have the right weight alleviation and plenty of ground clearance at headlands. A turnbuckle provides the right setting on the NOVACAT 262 and 302 without conditioner.

    Variable hitching made easy

    Thanks to the adjustable mounting pins, these mowers can be hitched up to a wide range of tractor types quickly and easily. As a result you make full use of the whole mowing width.

    • Practical PTO shaft holder makes hitching up easier.
    • A handy blade box provides space for replacement blades.
    • The blade tool is kept on the machine.

    Anti-collision device

    Anti-collision device

    If the mower collides with any obstacles, the cutter bar can fold back through a wide arc to the rear. The triggering force is adjustable. A hydraulic collision safety device is also available as an option.

  • Rear-mounted mowers with vertical transport position

    NOVACAT 262 / 262 ED / 262 RCB / 302 / 302 ED / 302 RCB

    NEW: NOVACAT 352 V

    Drive system

    The driveline transmits power directly from the PTO shaft to the angular gearbox and then via a double universal joint in the inner drum stress-free to the gear on the first mower disc. Exceptional smooth running is guaranteed.

    • A friction clutch and freewheel provide optimum protection.
    • The gears run submerged in oil.

    Cutter bar suspended at both ends

    Mounting points at each end of the cutter bar protect it against twisting. As a result, the gears and bearings are subjected to less stress for smoother operation and a long service life.

    Practical transport position

    Transport position

    The cutter bar is raised using double-acting spool valves. A low transport height is achieved by folding the mower through 115°. The centre of gravity is on the tractor’s centreline and the driver has a clear view to the rear in both side mirrors.


    Optimised ground tracking

    Developed by PÖTTINGER – the “floating cut” is the decisive factor.

    Since the mid-80s, our mower developments have focussed on the “floating cut”. Optimised ground tracking and sward conservation thanks to reduced pressure on the ground is what farmers demand on all mowers.

    Centre pivot mounting for optimised ground tracking

    NOVACAT centre pivot mounting

    The NOVACAT centre pivot mounting supports the cutter bar evenly over the entire cutting width. This reduces the power input required – an enormous advantage when mowing with a conditioner. The wide +/- 22.5 degree arc of movement enables easy mowing on rough surfaces and embankments.

    Effective weight alleviation

    Relief

    Hydraulic weight alleviation provides uniform ground pressure over the whole cutter bar width. The pressure of the cutter bar on the ground can be infinitely-variable adjusted depending on the condition of the ground and the conditioner or swath formers fitted. No additional filling hose is required and you can read the current pressure at the pressure gauge. In dry, hard conditions the ground pressure can be increased to stabilise the cutter bar at high driving speeds. Damp, soft conditions require a reduction in ground pressure to ensure the best ground tracking and conservation of the sward.

  • Rear-mounted mowers with horizontal transport position

    NOVACAT 352 / 352 ED / 352 RCB

    NOVACAT 402 / 442

    Top performance for rear mowers

    Mounting on tractor

    The top end of our rear-mounted mower range without conditioners is represented by the NOVACAT 402 and 442 with working widths of 3.88 m and 4.30 m. NOVACAT 402 and 442 deliver high output and are designed especially for tractors without a front PTO.

    NOVACAT 352, 352 ED and 352 RCB have a mowing width of 3.46 m. Our NOVACAT 352 with tine-type or roller-type conditioner enable a front/rear combination with conditioners to mow up to 6.20 m wide.

    Perfect linkage

    Lower linkage arm

    The hydraulic lower linkage arm guarantees easy hitching even with these wide mowers and plenty of ground clearance at headlands.

    HEAVY DUTY cutter bar

    HEAVY DUTY

    An additional cutter bar reinforcement is offered as an option for especially stony areas. Standard on NOVACAT 402 / 442.


    Feed drums

    Paddle drums at both ends of the cutter bar place a neat swath leaving a tidy wheel track clear. The swath can be divided with two feed drums (optional). As a result, the tractor is driven over the forage-free area rather than the swath.

    Narrower, lower transport

    Transport position
    The mower is swung hydraulically to the rear for transport. The pivot device also doubles as a breakaway device to protect the machine from collision. The cutter bar is also secured using a stabilizer cylinder.

    Flexible
    With the cutter bar mounting rotated through 180° it can be adapted to match front mower cutting widths of 3.0 and 3.50 m.

    50 cm ground clearance

    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.

  • NOVACAT 352 CF - Swath merging with cross flow auger

    NOVACAT 352 CF – CROSS FLOW Swath merging without conditioner

    Cross flow auger

    With the NOVACAT 352 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

    CROSS FLOW

    With the NOVACAT 352 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 30 % compared to conventional systems. Thanks to its low power requirement, you save fuel costs.

  • Models with conditioners

    ED tine conditioner


    EXTRA DRY


    Tine rotor


    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. Adjustable guide vanes distribute the flow of crop over the whole mowed width. 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

    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 alfalfa and all types of clover 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.


    Conditioner profile

    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

    • Both rollers are driven.
    • Contamination-free, low-maintenance toothed drive belt on roller conditioner.
    • The inter-meshing rollers crimp the stalks to produce a uniform blanket of forage
    • 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.
