MAX SPREAD crop flow concept.

Excellent.

The MAX SPREAD crop flow concept is characterised by the tangential linkage of the tines. The 29.3° trailed geometry brings great improvement to the crop flow. This, in turn, facilitates higher working rates and an improved spread pattern, and also ensures that the crop is handled extremely gently.

VOLTO tedders

Wide crop intake.

Thanks to the trailed tine connection of the MAX SPREAD crop flow concept, the tines are always positioned facing or crosswise to the direction of travel as the crop is taken up. By contrast, in conventional designs, the tines operate opposed to the direction of travel in the latter half of the intake area, thus limiting the forward speed. By comparison, the tines of the MAX SPREAD crop flow concept work for 33 percent longer, facing or crosswise to the direction of travel. With MAX SPREAD, therefore, higher working speeds or operations at a reduced engine speed are possible.

Gentle crop transfer.

Since the tines are always positioned at right angles to the crop during intake, they are able to deflect to the rear in the direction of the tine winding. This offers the advantage over conventional systems that the crop flows between the rotors in an almost perfectly straight line. This creates greater space for the crop during passage, creating the ideal conditions for enhanced throughput and exceptionally gentle handling of the forage. MAX SPREAD technology therefore also allows for the tedding of leafy crop types such as alfalfa at reduced engine speeds.

Maximum spread.

The 29.3° trailed connection also has a positive impact on crop delivery. Like the trailed spreading blades of a fertilizer spreader, this ensures a wider and more even distribution of the harvested crop for an optimal spread pattern. This fertilizer spreader effect is further supported by tine tension release in the direction of the winding. This additional stimulus allows the crop to be spread over a full working width.
