MAX SPREAD crop flow concept.

VOLTO tedders

Excellent.

The MAX SPREAD crop flow concept is characterised by the tangential connection of the tines. The 29.3° backward angle of the tines allows greatly improved crop flow. This facilitates higher working speeds and an enhanced spread pattern, and also ensures particularly gentle forage handling.

VOLTO tedders

Wide crop intake.

Thanks to the trailed tine connection in 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. In conventional designs, the tines operate opposed to the direction of travel after just half of the pick-up area, thus limiting the forward speed. By comparison, the tines of the MAX SPREAD crop flow concept operate for 33 percent longer in or crosswise to the direction of travel. With MAX SPREAD, therefore, higher working speeds or operations at a reduced engine speed are possible.

VOLTO tedders

Gentle crop transfer.

Since the tines are always positioned at right angles to the crop during pick-up, they are able to give way to the rear in the direction of the tine winding. This offers the advantage over conventional systems that the crop flow between the rotors is almost perfectly linear. This creates more space for the crop passing through, for enhanced throughput and exceptionally gentle handling of the forage. The MAX SPREAD concept, therefore, also permits 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. Thanks to this angle of the arms, the tines are much flatter as the crop leaves them, allowing a much wider spread of the crop, as with the trailed spreading blades of a fertiliser spreader. This results in a better distribution of crop to improve drying and wilting.
