Pottinger‘s latest Lion Power Harrow has been released offering multiple options to customers, with working widths from 2.5m to 4.0m and various equipment options to suit a range of needs.
The machine actively cultivates right to the outside from side board to side board, creating effective germination conditions over the full working width for rapid and uniform growth of the plants. The tine carrier is integrated into the rotor beam ensuring reliability because no soil flows above the rotors. Harvest residues cannot become snagged and no separate stone guard is necessary.
The Lion power harrows with 3.3 rotors per metre of working width can be used both as harrows and cultivators. With 4 rotors per metre of working width, the machine can be used on its own as a power harrow and all that is needed to change the application is for the tines to be repositioned. The sweeping angle of the tines produces a good tilth structure throughout the working depth and the mulch layer remains near the surface to protect against erosion.
Set to an aggressive angle, the tine breaks up the soil from underneath resulting in the mixing of the soil, with fine tilth concentrated lower down. The same geometry of tine is used for both applications. Optional tungsten coated Durastar tines can be selected for an even longer service life.
Conveniently, the side boards do not have to be folded upwards on new models to transport the machine to the next field. The boards are located within the permitted transport width and make full use of the maximum working width. This means it is no longer necessary to modify machines’ working widths of 3.0 m, 3.5 m and 4.0 m for road transport
The working depth of the rigid Lion power harrows can be flexibly adjusted by simply repositioning the bolts in the 9-hole matrix and hydraulic depth adjustment is available as an option.
The rear levelling board is standard and is set automatically with the depth of the rear roller. No readjustment is necessary when changing the depth.
Pottinger offers a wide choice of heavy power harrows to cover every tractor power range and application in the field. Each gearbox is matched to the respective application and is engineered for a long service life. Three different gearboxes are installed in the respective models.
