At Cereals this week you can find Pottinger on Stand No 830, where the company will have on display the new Tegosem and two new rollers for Pottinger cultivators.
The new Tegosem range of cover crop seed broadcaster have been added to the Pottinger range to meet the demands of customers looking to establish cover crops and other small seeds. The bespoke design has been engineered to fit the Pottinger Terradisc and Erradisc and Synkro range of stubble cultivators. A loading platform, steps with handrail and electric metering control allows for easy set-up, calibration and filling. Hopper capacity of either 200 and 500 litres are offered with a choice of electric or hydraulically power fans dependent upon model.
Getting their first UK showing at Cereals 2016 are two new rollers for Pottinger cultivators. The Conoroll design offers all the benefits in terms of re-consolidation of a traditional steel ring roller but with just a third of the weight. The system utilises a concentric arrangement of four tensile steel bands that are bolted around a centre axis to form a 760 mm diameter ring. These bands are formed in a concentric pattern and create a pressing effect that leaves soil well consolidated but with an ability to drain freely. This is achieved due to the corrugated finish left by the concentric rings. They are available as a single unit or in a tandem version on the full Pottinger cultivator range.
