Controlled floating pick-up
The V-belt-driven controlled floating pick-up has an effective width of 1.800 mm according to DIN. It ensures clean and reliable crop pick-up in all operating conditions and when cornering.
Low maintenance and durable
Cam track control
For perfect crop take-up and transfer

Optimum crop flow even at high driving speeds
Mounted rigidly or trailing for accurate height guidance
Jockey wheel chassis
Optional for the highest forage quality even in the most challenging terrain
On the BOSS 3000 pick-up, the 5 tine carriers are controlled by a steel cam track. This design has the following advantages:
Slightly trailing tine angle for better contour tracking without scraping the ground
Active forage transfer to the loading unit by using the full length of the tine
Tine dips down at a right angle to prevent the forage from being drawn in
Less combing of the forage due to lower speed for better chopping quality (fewer lengthwise stalks)
Low speed causes less ejection - reliable crop collection driving downhill
Maximum conveying performance at high driving speeds
Reliable intake, even in difficult harvesting conditions
The suspension of the pick-up allows side-to-side movement of 170 mm. In addition, the pick-up can also move down in the direction of travel, which ensures the crop is collected cleanly, even in deep troughs or over ridges. With a pick-up width of 1.800 mm, even high volume swaths are collected cleanly and tidily and cornering is made easier.
Crop take-up can be further optimised thanks to the automatic control of the parallel lift drawbar, which constantly keeps the pick-up's floating action within the optimum range. In addition, a trailing jockey wheel chassis is also available to prevent the pick-up from touching down in the centre.
The pick-up is driven by two V-belts. These can adapt perfectly to the movements of the pick-up. At the same time, they serve as overload protection. Maintenance and wear are minimised.
The pick-up disengages and switches off automatically when it is lifted at the headland or in the clamp. This makes it easy to drive over swaths and through the clamp.
The swath roller with crop transfer rods deliver optimum crop flow even at high travelling speeds. This is standard on the BOSS 3000 and can be adjusted to match different sizes of swath.
The angle of the roller and the crop transfer rods can be adjusted.
Rigid jockey wheels are fitted as standard. These are recommended for working on slopes and for fields with few curves.
Steered jockey wheels are available as an option for optimum conservation of the sward, even when cornering. The height of both jockey wheel versions can be easily adjusted using a pin-in-hole matrix.
A changeover system on the jockey wheels allows an additional selection between optimum ground tracking at the point of tine engagement, and optimised clearance to make it easier to drive over the clamp, or through awkward field entrances.
An optional jockey wheel chassis behind the pick-up ensures reliable guidance on bumpy terrain and prevents the side jockey wheels from sinking into wheel marks.
This stops the tines from scraping the ground even in the toughest conditions and minimises dirt ingress.
The synthetic rollers are rounded on the sides to prevent dirt from sticking and protect the sward when cornering.
