Auto-reset is hydraulic

AN hydraulic auto-reset system employing gas "springs" is now optional for Vogel and Noots Euromat 3S reversible ploughs.

The system protects plough bodies if they hit hidden obstructions. Hydro ST allows the operator to alter individual break-away pressures to suit conditions.

The Hydro ST has a gas cylinder for each pair of bodies. Vogel & Noot maintains that when a body is tripped, a single accumulator raises the gas pressure overall so other bodies cannot trip effectively. Euromat 3S ploughs with Hydro ST cost the same as those with mechanical auto reset.n
