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.

  • Lightweight and manoeuvrable

    Our single-rotor rakes with working widths of 3.40 m to 4.60 m are ideal for smaller areas. For big performance with small tractors, there are two single-rotor rakes also available as trailed versions.

    Pivoting headstock

    Heart-shaped pivot pin


    Shock absorber struts

    TOP 342 / TOP 382 / TOP 422 / TOP 462

    For optimum cornering

    • Rakes with pivoting headstocks follow in the tractor’s tracks without swivelling out.
    • The heart-shaped pivot pin ensures the machine is in the centre position when it is raised.
    • A slotted hole is provided for operation with a jockey wheel and rigid top linkage.
    • A practical PTO shaft holder and hose tidy makes coupling and uncoupling a great deal easier.
    • The transport interlock enhances safety on the road.

    Stabilizing shock absorbers

    The double-acting stabiliser struts on both sides ensure the machine is always centred. The shock absorbing struts keep the rake straight when operating across slopes. The struts stabilise the TOP rake when it is lifted and during transport on the road.

    Flexible mounting for MULTITAST wheel

    The optional jockey wheel can be mounted in a range of positions on a pin hole adjustment on the headstock.

  • Convenient to use

    Adjustable quickly and conveniently

    It’s a question of the right setting. Mere millimetres determine the quality of the forage. A range of adjustments help you to find the ultimate working setting.


    Height adjustment

    Working height – exact adjustment

    The working height is adjusted using a hand crank. Smooth-running and maintenance-free, it can be operated without bending over.

    Tandem axles – recision 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.

    Swath curtain adjustment – infinitely variable

    The swath curtains can be adjusted to match the quantity of forage and the desired width of the swath.

    Mechanical swath curtain lifting

    A spring-loaded strut makes it easy to lift the swath curtain.

    Hydraulic swath curtain lift system

    Lifting conveniently from the tractor seat is also available as an option.

    Narrow, safe road transport.

    Remove tine arms


    Tine arms stowed away

    Changing to the road transport position has got to be quick.

    • Remove linch pins
    • Remove tine arms
    • Insert into holders

    The tines are stowed away tidily and secured in place by linch pins. After raising the guard rail, the TOP is ready for road transport. Warning signs and road lights are standard.

    The TOP 342 and TOP 382 with mechanical swath curtain lifting achieve a transport width of less than 3.0 m without removing tine arms.

  • 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.
