New short chop system means higher quality forage

With the new short chop system, Pottinger’s expertise in loader wagons has taken another step further.

The new Jumbo 8450 with short-chop chopping system.

The new Jumbo 8000 chops the forage almost 30% shorter – this means even higher forage quality without compromising on loading performance.

The 8000 range consists of three models (without rear beaters) which boast DIN volumes of 40m3, 47m3 and 54m3. Protected to a torque of 3,500Nm and a power limit of 500hp, allows the loader wagon to deliver high throughput rates.

Thanks to the new drive concept, rotor and 65 knife chopping system, a theoretical chopped length of 25mm can be achieved. The knife bank conveniently swings out from under the wagon for easy access and the central knife release system is operated using a control panel to the side.

Despite the relatively small knife spacing of 25mm, it is still possible to use the Autocut automatic knife sharpening system. This saves diesel as well as time. Autocut guarantees the knives are always sharp during operation. The power requirement and the fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 20% as a result.

The moveable front panel provides a significant increase in volume of 4.3m3 for the same length of wagon. This makes the loader wagon a much more compact unit and manoeuvrable.

The patented, intelligent front panel enables a unique loading and unloading strategy to ensure an optimise the loading process. As a result, the Jumbo 8000 can always make optimum use of the space inside the loading chamber.

Stand number: Hall 6, Stand 310
