LAMMA 2012: Lightweight Synkro

Synkro 3030A

LAMMA also saw Pottinger show off its new 3-6m Synkro 3030 stubble cultivator range.

This comprises three rows of tines and is available either trailed or mounted, with trailed models folding to lower the centre of gravity during transport.

The 3m model on show was set up with 11 tines spread over the three rows to optimise the flow of trash, says Shaun Groom, brand manager at Pottinger UK.

The new design also sees the 3m model weigh in at a modest 1,379kg, which amounts to a 20% reduction in weight.

Tines can be positioned either horizontally to cut through the surface or in a more aggressive position to loosen the soil surface more evenly. There is also a range of rear roller options available.

Capable of working down to 30cm, the Synkro also comes equipped with auto-reset coil spring legs. Depth adjustment – controlled by the rear roller – has been moved to the front of the machine for operator ease. Available since the start of the year, the Synkro carries a £7,080 price-tag.
