With the optional Flowtast glide bar replacing the jockey wheel on Pöttinger's TOP 842 C Rotary Rake, dirt ingress is reduced by tracking the entire surface of the ground close to the tines. The wheels used on the chassis of the Rakes are configured in various ways (tandem, pendulum axles, different number of wheels) with jockey wheels fitted at different locations. These ensure the best possible tracking of the ground to reduce dirt ingress in the forage.
The Flowtast glide bar features wear-resistant plastic that is used as the ground contact material. Its high-volume saber shape delivers the best gliding characteristics even when moving sideways. The glide bar tracks the ground along the full raking length of the tine arc.
The suspension properties of the glide bar allow an approximately 10% higher driving speed.
