The cutter bar is the heart of Pottinger disc mowers. Available immediately, the new Tri Drive gear optimisation technology offers smoother running and durability as well as lower noise levels.
First-class cutting quality, low drag resistance and strength are the trademarks of Pöttinger mowers. Engineering details and ingenious machine functions contribute significantly to harvesting quality forage. The cutter bar is a key component on disc mowers. Developed and manufactured in Grieskirchen, the disc mower cutter bars are a quality product made in Austria.
Pottinger based the design on developments that have been made in drum-type mowers. The effect achieved by the paddles on the drum mower, increasing crop flow and lowering the drag resistance of the mower, is achieved by the contoured shape of the conical discs on the disc mower.
The crop really flows through the mower over the smooth profiled discs. Tractor power requirement is lower as a result; dynamic crop flow means the mower is operating at peak efficiency all the time.
The mower discs are driven by gear wheels that are almost the same diameter (39/50). Three teeth are always in contact for better power transmission and softer starting characteristics. The new surface of the gears ensures smoother running and a reduction in noise level. The gear wheels are hardened, machined and fitted with durable twin-race tapered bearings. Pöttinger disc mowers are extremely maintenance friendly. All knives feature a quick-change system so they can be replaced rapidly without the need of a socket wrench.
