- Arable farming specialist Pöttinger is launching a variety of innovations for the new season from ploughs to seed drill and crop care machines
Pöttinger is introducing a new hitch-mounted reversible plough in the medium power class up to 200 hp: the SERVO 3000. For this new model, the engineering department has borrowed many of the features of the more powerful SERVO 4000 to offer durability, easy operation and perfect working results. The SERVO 3000 ploughs are available with three to five furrows, as well as various point-to-point spacings and underbeam clearances.
For high output sowing during stubble cultivation or seedbed preparation, Pöttinger has now equipped not only its TERRIA stubble cultivators but also its trailed TERRADISC 8001 T / 10001 T disc harrows with a distribution system coupled to the AMICO F front hopper. Now, soil cultivation and sowing or fertilisation can be done at the same time.
Best quality tilth and excellent mixing of the soil to form a perfect seedbed are highlights of Pöttinger power harrows. Combined with a seed drill, this machine becomes a flexible and high output combination delivering perfect drilling results. The tailor-made Pöttinger solution features LION power harrows with working widths from 2.5 m to 4.0 m and multiple equipment options to cover all types of soil and different farm sizes.
The latest generation of mechanical VITASEM seed drills are available as simple linkage-mounted seed drills and with the suffix M (mounted) as implement-mounted machines
TERRASEM seed drills combine efficiency with the highest level of flexibility and precision seed placement. In order to comply with feedback from the field in terms of making machines easier to use, the new Profiline comfort control system has been developed for universal seed drill technology.
The already proven ROTOCARE and FLEXCARE mechanical crop care machines will get additional features in autumn 2023. These include the ability to mount a TEGOSEM hopper on the ROTOCARE V 6600 and V 8000 rotary hoes and optional automatic hoe element control using Section Control on all FLEXCARE row crop cultivators with working widths of 4.7 to 9.2 metres.
Successful mechanical weed control depends on several factors. The crop, weeds, soil, weather, and the equipment parameters all play an important role. In order to be prepared for different operating conditions, there are a number of settings that can be made on the Pöttinger TINECARE V 12200 MASTER tine harrow with a working width of 12.20 metres. These machines will be available in the next few months.
