Pottinger / Forage Wagons

Why Use a Pottinger Forage Wagon

Using a Pottinger Forage Wagon to collect silage offers significant benefits when considering the quality and nutritional value of the silage and the investment of labour and diesel. Labour and diesel costs are lowered compared to trailed forage harvesters through reducing the amount of tractors needed to collect the silage.

With a Pottinger Forage Wagon only one tractor and therefore one operator is needed. The 34mm-45mm chop length on Pottinger Forage Wagons is another significant benefit of using these machines, as rumen activity is increased in the animal’s stomach. This increased rumen activity improves the efficiency and nutritional value of the feed, thereby hopefully meaning more money in the pocket for the farmer.

Longer chop length and more time available to spend on the silage clamp reduces health problems such as twisted stomachs in cows, reducing vet’s bills and offering further savings over using a forage harvester.

The pickup system on Pottinger Forage Wagons uses the cammed system, which allows high speed throughput with minimum blockages. Turnaround between bouts is quickly achieved thanks to a one button unloading system, giving the farm more time to process the silage on the clamp reducing problems such as air pockets and secondary fermentation.

In order to give the operator ultimate control in his silage operations, Pottinger Forage Wagons can now be specified with an ISOBUS package on Torros and Jumbos.

Pottinger Forage Wagons are now also available with the new automatic knife sharpening system. Please call for more information.
