Beefier chopper unit for Torro wagon

Austrian machinery manufacturer Pöttinger is now fitting the heavier duty Jumbo chopper unit on to its mass market Torro self-loading forage wagons. Chop length remains at 35mm, but the new style chopper unit is said to bring a number of additional benefits, both in terms of operation and ease of maintenance. Dimensions of each knife increase by about 20%, and there is a new cleaning comb that removes short material from between the blades every time the operator hydraulically lowers the blades. According to Pöttinger product specialist, Shaun Groom, the fitting of the heavier duty chopper should be of particular interest to British and Irish users: "British and Irish forage harvesting conditions are pretty much unique in the world, often seeing only one very large cut taken. This contrasts sharply with the multiple cuts in Continental Europe."
