Uncontrolled Pick-Up

  • 2.0 or 2.3m pick-up.
  • 1.83/2.22m pick-up working width (DIN 11220).
  • Six tine bars, each fitted with 16/18 teeth (total of 96/108) and with 55mm tine spacing.
  • Pick-up tines arranged in a V-shape pattern for fast and efficient crop transport.
  • Pick-up tines are staggered for a more uniform flow of material.
  • Roller crop press for even flow of material into the chamber.
  • Pivoting pick-up guide wheels.
  • Pick-up without cam track for low wear and smooth Operation.

V-Max Rotor

  • The wellproven and robust cut-and-feed rotor is 1.42m wide and designed to bear the highest loads.
  • The V-Max rotor is driven by the maintenance-free oil-immersed gearbox that ensures trouble-free operation of the large 800mm diameter rotor.
  • The nine V-shaped rows of tine of the rotor feature 22mm wide tines that ensure a gentle and efficient flow of material into the chamber.
  • The special V-shape of the rotor ensures an even and fast flow of material across the entire rotor width, minimising peak loads and reducing power requirements.
  • The V-Max rotor is utilising the full capacity of the rotor, ensuring continuous cutting performance.
  • Rotex pre-chopping system with 35 knives offers the ultimate solution for short chop with a chop length of 40mm.
  • Each individual knife is spring protected against foreign obstacles. If an obstacle hits the knife, it will pivot backwards without  loosing cutting quality.

ISOBUS Control

IsoMatch Tellus GO

  • The IsoMatch Tellus GO is a Universal ISOBUS Terminals and has a new multifunctional one-screen terminal.
  • It is developed for fast and simple control of any ISOBUS implement, giving the farmer a ‘custom made’ experience as it suits all needs for plain and efficient handling of farming machinery and tasks.
  • With the easy to use application, Isomatch GEOCONTROL, it is possible to boost efficiency and save time and costs. The application includes Manual Guidance, Section Control and Variable Rate.
  • Whether it is used with fertiliser spreaders, sprayers or seed drills, Precision Farming is just one click away.

IsoMatch Tellus Terminal

  • The IsoMatch Tellus is also a virtual terminal, offering two Interface screens in one terminal.
  • The large 12” easily programmable touch screen offers ergonomic use and is designed for long days of operation.
  • Due to the increasing number of functionalities that can be added to a machine such as cameras, the operator can use the loader wagon interface in the top screen and a camera display in the bottom screen, to monitor the unloading process.
  • Another possibility is to use the loader wagon interface in the top screen and the tractor interface screen at the bottom.

Tandem Axles

  • Rotex 400, 450 and 550 offer a ground clearance of more than 70cm when the pickup is raised.
  • The hydraulically articulated drawbar allows the tractor to climb steep clamps, while the cabmounted terminal offers operators convenient and safe drawbar control.
  • The strong and stable tandem axles offer smooth operation and is designed for safe and fast transport of the crop to the silo clamp.
  • The tandem axle is rated to a maximum loading of up to 18 tons (up to 14 tons for Rotex 450, 11 tons for Rotex 400).
  • The standard level of specification comprises a hydraulic brake system an extensice range of different wheel sizes. Pneumatic breaking system is available as option.
  • The Rotex 550 is standard fitted with actively steered wheels, improving maneuverability when space is limited.
  • Rotex 450 is optionally available with steered wheels.

Loading and Unloading

  • All rotor wagons boast a frame that is made of robust C-profiled 220x100x8mm steel sections (closed on the outside) as well as strong stanchions and vertical steel sides.
  • The vertical side plates move the  material to the rear of chamber, ensuring a full load.
  • The hydraulic chain-and-slat conveyor is split into two segments and features four robust chains that handle even the heaviest material
  • The gearbox is positioned in the middle of the two segments, ensuring equal power distribution to both sides and torque split on two shafts instead of one. It is able to smoothly move massive amounts of crop to the rear of the chamber. The scraper floor automatically disengages when the chamber is full. 
  • Via the control terminal it is possible to choose between manually controlled or fully automatic unloading operation.
  • With the Rotex 402, 452 and 552 you get two large-diameter discharge rollers, which are driven by a maintenance-free  driveshaft, to unload the material in a uniform and even mat.
  • Further a conveyor belt for unloading to left or right side into manger is available


The top part of the SuperStructure chamber of Rotex 400/402 is available in 3 executions:

  • Standard version without extension.
