Pöttinger's TOP 1403 C Giant Rake is fitted with unique hybrid drive technology: the rotors are powered hydraulically at the front, mechanically at the rear. Weight alleviation on the rotor units follows the same principle: it is hydraulic for the two front rotors, mechanical for the rear pair. The degree of weight alleviation adjusts automatically depending on the working width.
The TOP 1403 C has automatic overlap control as a standard feature. When cornering, the front inside rotor is automatically pushed inwards according to the angle of the headstock and selected swath width. This ensures overlapping of the rear rotor. When the machinery straightens out again and travels straight ahead, the front rotor is automatically pushed outward. This ensures that the maximum working width is used to its best advantage. The overlapping is displayed on the operator terminal when the working width is adjusted. No steering angle sensor is necessary on the tractor.
With its maximum working width of 14 meters, the TOP 1403 C can rake large areas in next to no time. The hydraulically adjustable working width of 9 to 14 meters provides the flexibility to rake smaller areas as well.
