Technology

  • TOPTECH PLUS

    Impressive rotor technology

    TOPTECH PLUS

    The large cam tracks on PÖTTINGER rakes offer a cam track diameter of up to 420 mm and a bearing spacing of up to 900 mm on the tine arms. These properties give the tine arms maximum strength with minimum stress on the arm bearings. The cam track can be infinitely-variable adjusted to different forage volumes and changing harvesting conditions. The rotor gears run in a sealed semi-liquid grease gearbox.

    Rotor unit encapsulated and dust-tight
    No lubrication required. TOPTECH PLUS eliminates leak problems and requires no oil checks or oil changes.

    Maximum uptime and durability
    TOPTECH PLUS rotors

    Optimised for smooth control of cam rollers. No sudden inclines in cam track so control arm follows cam track smoothly. Maintenance-free steel cam rollers, high strength cam shafts and wide spacing of the tine arm bearings guarantee high strength and low stress to the bearings. Additionally, the tine arm bearings are also maintenance-free.

    The heavy-duty tine arm cross-section is strong and resistant to twisting and bending. Tidy raking work is provided by 10 to 15 tine arms per rotor, depending on the working width. The tine arms are removable to reduce height for transport and parking.

    Service-friendly rotor technology


    Tine change

    The whole tine arm can be exchanged quickly and easily in the event of any damage. Just undo two bolts to slide the inner tine arm and roller out of the rotor casing.

    • No problems with oil leaks.
    • Ready for action again in no time.

  • TOPTECH PLUS - Best forage

    Best forage
    Raking has a decisive influence at the end of the harvest chain on how clean the forage remains. The tines must not contact the ground; instead they rake the forage carefully out of the sward.

    TOP tines deliver millimetre precision

    Tines

    The tines are positioned straight at the ground directly under the tine arm, without any need for a steep offset angle. Due to the resistance of the forage, they are pressed back slightly but do not rise upwards under load therefore the tines produce exact raking results. These tines do not need to be set so deep as others to rake tidily. This means less stress on the cam track and cam rollers. Resulting in both the sward and forage are both treated with care. The long tines are drawn smoothly out of the swath for a perfect swath shape.

    Easy height adjustment


    Height adjustment

    The working height of TOP rakes can be adjusted from the standing position using a hand crank. This is easily accessible and maintenance-free. A height indicator makes it easy to ensure that both rotors are the same height on twin rotor rakes.

    Multi-stage raking

    TOP tines

    The outer pairs of tines are slightly shorter so that they do not contact the full volume of forage and the load is lower. The three inner pairs of tines are used for precision work.

    Safe and sound

    Tine security

    Securely bolted

    Featuring a shaped support disc, the tine mounting provides a secure connection.

    Tine security system

    The tine security system prevents tine loss in the swath. The safety tab is secured reliably over the outermost tine bolt.

    Unbeatable tine arm profile

    Extremely resistant to twisting and bending forces, which are dissipated along the edge sections. The linch pin is only a security measure. Easy to slot in, it is not possible to fit the wrong way. The inner tine pairs are also easy to install. All tine arms can be removed to save space when parked.

  • Masters of ground tracking

    Masters of ground tracking
    TOP rakes stand for working quality and productivity. Perfect ground tracking is the guarantee for tidy raking work – even in short or heavy wet forage.

    A rotor chassis for every application
    For tidy and careful raking, PÖTTINGER offers five options on twin rotor rakes to best match your operating conditions.

    Three wheel chassis

    The three wheel chassis produces excellent results on completely flat fields. Standard bei TOP 612 C / TOP 702 C / TOP 762 C CLASSIC / TOP 662.

    Three wheel chassis with MULTITAST wheel

    The MULTITAST wheel mounted outside the arc of the rotor fine-tunes the results.

    Five wheel chassis with tandem axle

    The 5 wheel tandem chassis provides you with the best equipment for undulating terrain. Standard on the TOP 762 C / TOP 842 C / TOP 722 / TOP 812.

    Tandem axle and MULTITAST wheel

    Standard with TOP 652

    Five or six-wheel chassis with tandem axles and MULTITAST jockey wheel

    The best ground tracking in every terrain and completely smooth running at the highest driving speed.

    TOP tandem axles
    Even on undulating and rough terrain, we can guarantee you perfect raking performance and clean forage. The tandem axles provide a very wide wheel spacing which makes the rake perform very well on slopes. The wheels are located very close to the tines.

    Precision adjustable and easy to retrofit

    The angle of the rotor chassis is adjusted using the offset bolts on the wheels. For perfect raking work, the rotor should be angled slightly towards the swath. Quick and easy to retrofit.

  • MULTITAST jockey wheel

    Good guidance guarantees best forage quality

    Rake with MULTITAST

    The MULTITAST wheel from PÖTTINGER supports quality-aware farmers to achieve the highest objective in forage harvesting: Clean forage for healthy, high-yield animals. At the same time, the valuable sward is protected.

    Offset in front of the rotor, the wheel ensures perfect ground tracking without the tines contacting the ground. The PÖTTINGER MULTITAST wheel ensures high working quality and productivity.

    Reliable rotor guidance

    The MULTITAST wheel makes the support triangle much larger. This makes the rotors run more smoothly and suppresses vibrations. The PÖTTINGER MULTITAST wheel provides ground tracking and guarantees clean forage without disintegration losses.

    Rake without MULTITAST wheel

    Without a MULTITAST wheel the rake has a much smaller area of support. This leads to less smooth operation with reduced ground tracking, which can cause crop contamination.

    Clean forage
    The MULTITAST wheel ensures smooth running of the rotors and suppresses oscillations.

    On a rise, the MULTITAST wheel lifts the rotor. The ideal gap between the tines and the ground is maintained. Clean forage is guaranteed.

    • Over a test track of 197 ft / 60 m, the tines on the rotor without the MULTITAST wheel contact the ground at least 5 times more

    On top of a rise, the MULTITAST wheel guides the rotor downwards and prevents raking losses.

    • Over the same test track, the tines on the rotor without the MULTITAST wheel rise above the crop three times, resulting in raking losses.

  • Benefits

    The advantage of our centre-swath rakes is their uniform and airy swath placement. Our centre-swath rakes with working widths between 5.90 m and 9.60 m guarantee a swath perfectly matched to the next machine in the harvest operation.

    Compact mounting

    Headstock


    Mounting

    The machine is connected to the tractor by a yoke that enables a steering angle of 73°. A practical PTO shaft holder and hose tidy are standard equipment for uncluttered parking. A freewheel is integrated into the second PTO shaft on the driveline. With a maintenance interval of 50 hours. The heavy duty frame is designed for the toughest operation conditions.

    Maximum manoeuvrability

    Thanks to the steered chassis, TOP centre-swath rakes are extremely manoeuvrable. The steering angle indicator is clearly visible from the driver’s seat. A strong steering linkage between the yoke and the axles features maintenance-free steering linkage joints.

    Customised axles

    Rake with large tyres

    • A 2.55 m track width is available as an option for especially narrow transport widths.
    • The chassis is fitted with large 260/70-15.3 tyres.
    • AS profile tyres are available as an option to make these rakes especially suitable for slopes.
    • Lights and mudguards are fitted as standard.

  • Convenient to use

    The cost-effective centre-swath rake

    Centre-swath rake

    TOP 612 / 612 C

    The working width is fixed at 5.90 m to form a swath 1.0 m wide. The steered axle is optional on the TOP 612 C.

    Working widths on demand

    Swath width spindle


    Working width adjustment

    TOP 702 C / 762 C / 842 C / 962 C

    We offer two possibilities for adjusting the working width to match the swath precisely to your requirements.

    Mechanical adjustment

    A spindle is used to adjust the working width and is the ideal solution for farms where the width only needs to be changed occasionally. The width of the swath can be varied between 1.20 and 2.0 m.

    Hydraulic adjustment

    With the optional hydraulic adjustment system, it is possible to place a narrow swath without using a swath curtain. The whole crop – alfalfa, for example – is raked right through – TOP 702 C / 762 C.

    • Optimum match to any pick-up width.
    • Infinitely-variable adjustment from the tractor seat.
    • Standard on TOP 842 C / 962 C.

    Hydraulic adjustment of the working width is a convenient solution if the swath often needs to be adapted to the width required for the follow-up machine. The swath width indicator helps you achieve the right setting. The optional swath curtain guarantees perfect swath shape.

    Convenient operation from the tractor seat

    Schwadbreitenzylinder

     

    One single-acting connection to the tractor hydraulics is all that is needed for lifting. A flow splitter is available as an option to raise the rotors evenly. This is an advantage especially on slopes. An individual rotor lifting system with electrical preselect is available for raking track width and headlands.

    The optional hydraulic working width adjustment system requires a double-acting connection.

    The optional swath curtain lifts up automatically. Stabiliser springs on the rotors ensure that they are lifted and lowered gently at the headland.

    Transport height under 4 m

    With a transport height of less than 4.0 m, there is no need to leave the tractor cab to remove tine arms before driving to the next field.

    • Parking heights with tine arms removed 2.92 m / 3.30 m / 3.50 m.
    • Warning signs and road lights are standard.

    TOP 612 Mounted machine
    Working width 5.90 m, for areas where frequent turns are required. The frame and rotors are locked hydraulically in the centre position during lifting. Shock absorber struts on both sides as standard.
