Fuel saving Pottinger plough
Having launched a traction control system on a mounted plough last year Pottinger unveiled a semi-mounted model at SIMA.
The Servo 6.50 is offered in six, seven and eight furrows which product specialist, Shaun Groom says is about 10 per cent easier to pull than a conventional reversible plough, boosting output and saving fuel.
Key to this is a hydraulic weight transfer system that the operator uses to put pressure on the tractor’s rear wheels to improve traction without affecting the plough’s ability to follow ground contours.
The hydraulic vari-width system on the Servo 6.50 works in conjunction with the land wheel to ensure it always runs true. The main beam is made from 160mm box section and the plough is offered with shear bolt break back or hydraulic auto-reset.
The mounted Servo 45S is to make its UK debuet at Cereals while the semi-mounted Servo 6.50 is expected to be shown at the Tillage events.
