JUMBO / Jumbo combiline

You can depend on self loading wagons

With the "Battle of the Systems" Pottinger moved into contention for the optimum method for producing quality silage. Now the self loading wagon is actually getting in position to overtake. Cost advantages and increased productivity have made the self loading wagon into the silage system of the future. 

Superior functionality and quality - Optimal cost-effectiveness

Extra-strength, bolted construction and heavy-duty scraper floor for outstanding strength and operational safety. Superior chassis technology protects the soil and the machine.

JUMBO combiline - Hydraulically adjustable three-position font flap.

High level of productivity.

Cost benefits enhanced by increased machine-operating efficiency. 

Performance - Comfort - Economy

Lower power requirement and therefore a lower diesel consumption for harvesting, for example, 500 HP instead of 800 HP; 1 gallon of diesel per acre / 10 liters of diesel per hectare instead of 1.7 gallons / 16 litres.

Lower financial investment requires, less manpower and simplified management of labor.

Driveline and power transmission

Unique power train 

  • Driven by a two-way wide-angle pto shaft, 60-hour lubrication interval.
  • The cam clutch coupling protects the drive train.
  • The torque protection is an impressive 2500 Nm, which corresponds to a peak performance of almost 450 HP (331 kW).
  • That adds up to a performance increase of 20% compared to previous models.

Heavy duty transmission 

  • Power is transmitted from the input gearbox to the loading rotor and onto the pick-up
  • The rotor is driven by a large bevel gear submerged in oil that is completely maintenance free. The drive system features a floating axle with precisely machined gears. 
  • On the ISOBUS version a load cell on the rotor gearbox enables the drive torque to be matched precisely to the quantity of crop - the ultimate in crop protection without leaving the cab. 

High capacity Pick-up

The Pottinger pick-up guarantees maximum performance, even in difficult harvesting conditions such as in damp and short grass.

  • The 2.0-m wide, controlled 8-row pick-up delivers an increase in performance of up to 20%.
  • The collection area from the pick-up tines to the rotor has been optimised and adapted to the rotor capacity.
  • Maintenance-friendly - cam track only needs to be lubricated once a year; the main bearing on the cam arm every 80 loads - lubrication points are externally mounted. 
  • Clean forage thanks to tempered transfer plates that help separate the soil from the forage, This protects the chipping unit.

Only a clean crop can guarantee trouble-free fermentation for high quality silage.

  • The pick-up is controlled from both ends by a cam track made of steel with a solid center. The sealed twin-groove roller bearings on the cam rollers are designed to withstand high stress. 
  •  The pick-up are swept back to prevent damage to the sward, the throwing up of soil, and unnecessary wear on the tines.

Perfect ground hugging - a height-adjustable 16 x 6.5-8 trailed jockey wheels

  • The wheels sweep the ground on the same line as the tines, and guide the pick-up perfectly through each hollow. These wheels are free to castor, allowing easy cornering.
  • A height-adjustable windguard with a large diameter swath roller ensures perfect forage flow even when loading is fast and the crop is short and wet. 

Pendular hinged pick-up

  • Two hinged support links give the pick-up full mobility.
  • In addition to this, spring suspension ensures low, soil-protecting ground pressure - hydraulic suspension is available as an option.
  • Automatic cut-off of pick-up drive when raised on all JUMBO self loading wagons.

The silage-loading rotor

Perfect transfer of the crop from the pick-up and maximum loading performance even in difficult harvesting conditions (wet and short forage). Rotor tines feature proven advanced geometry that has been field tested over many years. 

  • Smooth, energy-saving penetration into crop.
  • Continuous transfer of the crop from the pick-up and highest loading performance thanks to the wide surfaces on the ends of the tines.
  • The optimum gap between the knives and tines ensures smooth operation and protects the knives from foreign objects. 

Powermatic

The loading rotor 

  • The loading rotor is mounted on self-aligning ball bearings at both ends. The drive end stub shaft is 100-mm thick and the bearing is located between the rotor and gearbox to minimize stress on the bearings.
  • The conveyor tines are made of hardened fine-grain Hardox 500 and are 12-mm thick.

Maintenance made easy

  • The tine rings are clipped into the inner drum.
  • Each ring can be replaced individually.

Scrapers with 0.71" / 18-mm wide backbone

  • The scrapers are positioned and bolted into place individually. The scrapers are an ideal shape which reduces energy wastage.
  • The best possible compression in the loading chamber is achieved thanks to the large scraper surface area and optimised rotor tine geometry. As a result, the Pottinger JUMBO delivers the highest loading performance and load density per cu ft, even with damp crops. 

Unique chopping unit

New "autocut": sharpens blades directly on the self loading wagon 

  • The "autocut" blade sharpener allows for convenient blade sharpening directly on the self loading wagon. The sharpening cycle can easily be pre-selected in accordance with the wear on the knife using the control pad. 
  • This considerably reduces maintenance expanses and simultaneously guarantees long lasting optimal cutting quality with lower energy consumption and increased output.

Access a video of autocut here

Removing the blades for sharpening. which formerly took place only once a day, thereby impairing the cutting quality, has now come to an end.

  • Intensive use of over 10 to 20 hours per day inevitably reduces the sharpness of the blades.
  • This increases power demands and fuel consumption up to 15%, in stony areas up to 20%.
  • With the new blade sharpening system the sharpness is maintained throughout the entire day - it is simple and fully automatic.
  • This equals up to 15% more output and also up to 15% less diesel fuel consumption thanks to "autocut"

Easy move - The original

Pottinger lead the Industry by Introducing the Easy Move pivoting knife bank back in 1999. This unique pivoting knife bank makes knife changes effortless.

You can't get simpler than this

  • The chopping unit is lowered hydraulically either from the tractor seat or by pressing the button on the left-hand side of the wagon.
  • The whole knife bank can be swung out sideways in the traditional Pottinger fashion.
  • The knives can be automatically released via the central knife release and removed without the need for any tools.
  • The pressure springs and rocker arm for securing individual knives are located in the protected area. This considerably reduces the amount of soil which accumulates in the knife mountings.
  • A cleaning scraper, which automatically cleans spaces between the knives every time the knife bank is lowered, is also available on request. 

Knife protection

High capacity performance requires equally high triggering pressure. The knives are held individually in the correct position to make sure that a consistent chip length is produced. 

  • Smaller pieces fall through baffle plates between the pick-up and the rotor.
  • Larger foreign bodies are pushed by the rotor onto the knife and move it briefly in the direction of rotation.
  • The trigger roller is lifted out of its holder at the back of the knife. The knife releases the foreign body. The resistance is minimal, which protects the knife.
  • After the foreign body has passed the chipping unit, the knife springs back to its original position.

The most important benefits is that stones in the forage are not pulverized into splinters like they are by harvesters. The result is that there is no risk of injury to the digestive tract of livestock. 

The original with high quality

  • The knife shape provides a continuous sliding cut. The forage is always cut cleanly and not torn apart due to its pull-back chopping action.
  • The knives are made of hardened tool-steel and the serration on one side ensures a precise cut even if the knife edge is dulled.
  • The new knives with extra-strong backs and wide wave cut ensure a prolonged service life.


Automatic loading system

The constant force progression whilst loading, without torque peaks, is a feature of the JUMBO self loading wagons. There are two integrated sensors for monitoring the status of loading. They check on the loading status and automatically control the scraper floor movement accordingly. This protects the self loading wagon and the forage.

Jumbo automatic loading system.jpg

Unique sensor on the front panel

  • This measures the loading pressure of damp, heavy grass on the front panel and operates the scraper floor. This prevents the forage from being mashed due to excessive load on the loading rotor. 

Sensor on roof panel

  • This sensor measure the load status of the self loading wagon so that the driver does not have to do so. This significantly improves the filling efficiency of the loading chamber.

The scraper floor disengages when the self loading wagon is full

  • The limit switch and "wagon full" signal are controlled by the tailgate or beaters.
  • The scraper floor can also be manually controlled.

Load sensing as standard to save power

  • Pottinger silage self loading wagons are fitted with load-sensing equipment. The required amount of oil is measured constantly and adapted to requirements. No oil heating, and power saving of up to 20 hp / 15 kW - high efficiency.

Scraper floor

Reliability for long service

  • The tempered slats are separated and offset.
  •  The scraper-floor shafts can be lubricated from the side of the wagon.

Unloading speed of up to 78.7' / 24 meters per minute

ISOBUS control

  • The drive-train torque can be adapted to the crop using a load sensor on the rotor gearbox.
  • Perfect forage protection operated directly from the tractor seat.
