NOVACAT F ALPIN mowers are the lightest in their class.
They are available with working widths of 2.20 / 2.62 / 3.04 m. Our engineers have succeeded in keeping the weight to just 400 / 450 / 490 kg. Thanks to the low weight and short design of the mower, it can be driven by small tractors and twin axle mowers. This protects the valuable sward and the forage remains clean.
The best forage quality is the basis for your success
High yield livestock need a high quality basic ration. Ruminants are fussy about their forage. The quality of their basic ration will determine whether your animals consume the forage in high quantities, or not.
What they like most is basic ration that is clean and tasty. The amount of concentrates used can be reduced. This cuts forage costs while at the same time improving animal health. The bottom line is that you benefit from clean, high quality forage with more profit from your farm business.
But mountainous terrain places high demands on technology when it comes to harvesting the best quality basic ration. At PÖTTINGER, we also focus on the best ground tracking and maximum forage conservation with our light ALPIN range of machines that are designed to work on steep inclines.
The basis for clean forage
A mowing process that conserves the grass is the best basis for clean forage. Ultimately, this is about maintaining the correct cutting height of 5-7 cm. That is how crude ash ingress is reduced to a minimum right from the start of the harvest chain. Subsequent harvesting machines then do not have to work so close to the ground to collect all the forage.
