First seen at the Paris Sima show in February, Pottinger has introduced a traction control system for its Servo 45S range of ploughs.

Load is transferred back to the tractor from the plough through the top link pin, which still uses the slotted hole, allowing the plough to track changes in ground contours.

What this does is maintain load and keeps wheelslip to a minimum. A nitrogen-charged accumulator allows for displacement of oil from the controlling ram while maintaining this traction, regardless of movement of the top link. Prices start from £845 and it can be retrofitted.
