PÖTTINGER presents new flexible mulch drilling technology

PÖTTINGER has launched MULTILINE, its new concept in drilling technology that brings together a compact disc harrow or stubble cultivator with a seed drill, providing a cost-effective, high-performance mulch drilling technology that enables flexibility during operation

The company commented that used solo or in a combination, the new MULTILINE concept promises potential for light tractors.

The TERRADISC MULTILINE is available in working widths of 3 and 4 metres. The basic unit is a TERRADISC compact disc harrow, or the SYNKRO 3030 for the stubble cultivator, in both cases in combination with the new tyre packer. The machine is trailed using a drawbar attached to Cat. III / width 2 low linkages. The MULTILINE can be operated conveniently using the most straightforward tractor set-up.

Combined with the seed drill, it offers an ideal alternative among mulch seed technology. The weight of the machine is borne by the tyre packer and only the supported load acts on the tractor. This means that it is possible to use the machine without front ballast. The MULTILINE system with offset wheel configuration offers excellent ground conservation technology. This guarantees both yield and long-term and sustainable operation with no harmful compaction. The machine is raised using the tyre packer. Ground clearance of 27 cm allows smooth turns at the headland and on the road.

VITASEM ADD or AEROSEM ADD seed drills are installed as standard above the packer roller on both the compact disc harrow and the stubble cultivator. The seed drill can be fitted or removed easily, depending on whether the trailed machine is to be used on its own or not.
