Pöttinger claim its trailed Terradisc models with working widths of 4 m, 5 m and 6 m (13.1 ft, 16.4 ft and 19.7 ft) are unbeatable for cultivating stubble.
The Frontboard fitted ahead of the discs is now available for this model. Designed specifically for ploughed fields, the Frontboard breaks up large clods and levels the soil surface. This means that the following discs have less work to do, which also saves fuel.
The Frontboard can be adjusted hydraulically and independently of the rest of the tools, and the working depth is fixed by using swing clips.
The following versions are available and can be retro-fitted to all trailed TERRADISC models:
• Frontboard 4.16 with a working width of 4 m and 16 tools
• Frontboard 5.20 with a working width of 5 m and 20 tools
• Frontboard 6.24 with a working width of 6 m and 24 tools.
One of Denmark’s largest contractors and a Pottinger customer for many years, Lindholm Maskinstation is relying on this stubble cultivation technology. They are using a trailed Terradisc compact disc harrow with a working width of 6m, Frontboard Tegosem catch crop seed drill and a Tandem Conoroll conical ring roller and are very happy with the results.
Owner Flemming Hansen is convinced of the output and reliability: “The aggressive angle of the discs and the Tandem Conoroll rear roller ensure reliable penetration of the soil and a perfect finish with consolidated ridges. The high output of the 6-metre machine with the blockage-free and intensive mixing effect of the concave discs ensures perfect working results.”
