Pottinger has added the Novacat 352 V, with a working width of 3.52 m without conditioner, to its Novacat rear mower range. The company says that to the new vertical transport position, the Novacat 352 V is ideal for tight cornering and narrow field entrances.
A central feature on this new model is the unique hydraulic lower linkage arm that enables easy mounting without having to adjust the tractor linkage drop arms, which offer the very highest level of convenience. Using the hydraulic “hitch & mow” lower linkage arm, the headstock can always be brought into the correct horizontal position – independently of the geometry of the tractor linkage. In addition, this system optimises weight alleviation as well as providing excellent ground clearance (50 cm on the inside) for headland turns and transport on the road. Furthermore ground tracking is also optimised as a consequence.
During transport the mower is folded to the side and raised through 115 degrees. With the highest point of the mower in the tractor centreline, the centre of gravity is perfectly centred. This ensures compact transport dimensions and safe transport of the mower. The headstock can be lowered to ensure a transport height of 4 m is maintained. The storage position when removed from the tractor is to the side in the working position; however parking stands are also available so that the mower can be left in the transport position when stored to save space.
