German agricultural manufacturer Pöttinger has announced the release of a new centre-swath rake
With a working width of between 7.7 metres and 8.4 metres, the company said the TOP 842 C could guarantee high productivity, as well as excellent ground tracking and manoeuvrability.
The rake has a number of key features, including a headstock with a yoke connecting the tractor linkages and a practical PTO shaft holder and hydraulic hose boom, allowing for a 73° turning angle.
The TOP 842 C also has a rotor diameter of 3.7 metres and 13 tine arms, as well as an adjustable cam track with the largest diameter of 420 mm and a tine arm bearing spacing of 700 mm.
The company said that along with having rotor unit that ensured greater strength and reliability, the new rake was also easier to maintain and to transport, as the dual units can be repositioned and locked using the hydraulic working width adjustment system, giving a transport height of less than four metres.
