Pöttinger’s new Novacat RCB roller conditioner, which is available for all Novacat Alpha Motion models as well as the Novacat 262, 302 and 352, is said to be more economical, reliable and easier to service.
It is fitted with two toothed belts instead of the usual drive chain, which provides double the freedom of movement on the top roller, which translates into an extra 25mm. This guarantees optimum conditioning of the forage.
Thanks to the toothed belts, the drive system is maintenance-free. The tension of the toothed belts can be conveniently adjusted from the outside. The back tension idler has an automatic lock and can be aligned with the belt using an offset sleeve.
Grease is applied to the bearings using an external central greasing point. Oil lubrication is no longer necessary, which considerably reduces the contamination in the drive area. A clean machine makes a significant contribution to clean forage and as a result improves forage quality.
Both rollers are driven on the Novacat RCB, which ensures a reliable conditioning effect. Blockages are now a thing of the past, and that’s a major contribution to increasing the reliability of the conditioner.
An optimum drying sequence is achieved thanks to the wide swath placement on rear mower units, which helps greatly in delivering the best possible forage quality. What’s more, double the freedom of movement of the top roller increases the clearance for large quantities of forage, which substantially boosts the output of the conditioner – a major contribution to the cost effectiveness of the machine.
