The new NOVACAT ALPHA MOTION PRO was awarded “Machine of the Year” at Agritechnica.
An international jury from eleven nations awarded the coveted prize in a total of 15 categories. Pöttinger received the prestigious award in the “Haying” category.
The jury praised the easy attachment to any tractor and the proven kinematics of the active support frame.
With the ALPHA MOTION headstock the entire carrier frame adapts to the ground contours. Each movement controls the carrier frame to ensure a “floating cut”. Even at high speeds and over wet ground, which results in a unique conservation of the swaths. The mower is guided harmoniously over each bump in the ground, which means that it is less stressed and wear is reduced.
The award ceremony took place on 12th November 2019. Gregor Dietachmayr (Speaker of the Executive Board), T.C. Truesdell (Marketing Director) and Daniel Ratzberger (Director Product Management) accepted the award.
