    Impressive rotor technology


    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


    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

    Tine arms

    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

    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

    Rake without MULTITAST wheel

    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.

  • Advantages rakes without transport chassis

    These twin rotor rakes are highly popular due to their economic price and excellent manoeuvrability. These side rakes can be flexibly configured to rake a large single swath or two narrow swaths.

    Optimum flexibility

    Rake without transport chassis

    The hydraulic working width adjustment system enables the formation of a single swath or two double swaths.

    Forming one side swath

    The machine is offset so that the rear rotor accepts the forage from the front rotor. The optional front swath curtain is raised. This setup places a double swath.

    Forming two swaths or night swaths

    The rear rotor is pivoted to the right. The front swath curtain is lowered so that each rotor forms its own swath. This makes it possible to form two small night swaths, or two normal-sized swaths in the case of very high forage volumes.

    Perfect ground tracking

    The drawbar is equipped with a large support plate to provide extra stability on slopes and while cornering.

    The frame is designed so that the two rotor units can ride over uneven ground completely independently of each other. Vertical freedom of movement is provided by a joint directly behind the angular gear unit.

    Transverse movement of the rear rotor unit is enabled by a pivot bearing mounted within the frame itself, and by a universal joint between the rear frame beam and the rotor unit.

    Enjoy the road trip

    • The tandem axles are also used as the transport chassis.
    • 18 x 8.5-8 flotation tyres enable high travelling speeds.
    • The rotors are lifted hydraulically to drive over swaths and at headland turns.
    • Ground clearance 50 cm.
    • Warning signs and road lights are standard

    Easy operation

    Swath curtain lifting

    One single-acting connection to the tractor hydraulics is all that is needed for lifting. Hydraulic working width adjustment for a single swath or double swaths is possible with one double-acting connection.

    Stepping valves provide more convenient operation for raising and lowering the rotors.

    The hydraulic working width adjustment system can also be used to steer at the headland and enables perfect manoeuvrability.

    Hydraulic lifting in transport position. Hydraulic cylinders on the chassis and drawbar provide 50 cm of ground clearance.

    Hydraulic swath curtain lift system

    With optional hydraulic swath curtain lifting, the TOP 611 A TOPTECH PLUS has a transport width of less than 3.0 m without having to leave the cab to remove the tine arms.
