The same amount of diesel with a bigger mixer
The Shifttronic 3-speed powershift makes the unusual tractor and mixer wagon combination possible. The automatic gearbox ensures that the driveline starts up effortlessly and automatically shifts from first to second to third gear.
As soon as the programmed weight is reached, the Shifttronic shifts back down automatically. This enables the tractor to operate at the optimum torque at all times, which you can see primarily from the low fuel consumption and the minimal wear and tear on both the tractor and the mixer feeder. Eigil:
“I use the same amount of diesel with this 46-cubic-meter mixer wagon as I did with the old 30-cubic-meter one. At the time I also had a hundred fewer cows, so fuel consumption has stayed the same with more cows and a larger mixer feeder.”
Saving on maintenance costs
“I’m very happy with this powershift: I save on maintenance costs as well as time. Incidentally, another big advantage is that this mixer feeder also mixes small quantities of feed really well, such as the 3-tonne ration for the heifers.”
