The Pöttinger tedder range includes:
- Lift mounted models from 4,4m working width to 8,6m working width.
- Trailed models from 5,2m to (NEW!) 17m
Standard features across the range
Unique ground tracking
Four Times Cleaner With DYNATECH – Rotor design
- Forage pick-up – small rotor diameters guarantee clean crop pick-up
- Forage – optimum ground tracking of each rotor for clean forage
- Spread pattern – ideal spreading angle for a uniform blanket of clean forage
- Machine – no snagging thanks to the sleek design of the rotor units
Adaptable for clean results
The rotors can be set in five different positions without the need for tools (three settings on HIT 16.18 T). You can adapt the rotors to the forage conditions quickly and easily. A uniform and tidy spread pattern is ensured as a result.
Tine design features:
- The bolted mounting ensures a secure fit.
- A tine security system is standard – to cover all eventualities.
- An arched mounting supports the tine springs.
- Plenty of space between the tine springs and the tine arms allows for the best elasticity and movement.
- Strong Super-C quality tines
- Swept Tine Arms. The unique swept-back tine arms guarantee a tidy spread pattern. As a result the tines move in a sweeping action to handle the forage softly. The swept shape of the tine arms prevents forage from building up and wrapping around the rotors. High performance is built in to our mounted and trailed HIT tedders.
- Offset tine lengths. Offset tine lengths pick up the forage uniformly and contribute significantly to improved tedding quality. Two angles of inclination can be set by turning the mounting through 180°. This guarantees the cleanest forage and optimum working quality in all operating conditions.

Rugged Rotor Gearbox Units
- Large gears and bearings ensure smooth operation.
- The closed angular gearboxes are equipped with a greasing system.
- No oil leaks possible
- The joints are mounted on a splined shaft.
- The rotor dishes are made of heavy-duty, thick-walled pressed components with precise placement for the tine arms. In addition, the tine arms are also bolted to the rotor hubs to ensure an extremely secure mounting.
- The tines and tine arms are subject to the highest stress during tedding. The solid tine arms are made of flat bar with press-fitted holes. These ensure that the tines are held in place securely.
Backlash-Free Drive Joints
Sealed single and double constant velocity joints ensure consistent, smooth, backlash-free drive to the rotors. This ensures that the tines pick up the crop precisely and produce an even spread. At the same time, they can be rotated in any position, eliminating the possibility of operator errors.
Double clevis frame hinges provide each rotor with the freedom of movement for perfect ground tracking. Fitted with plain bushes, they are easy to grease.
Automotive paintwork quality
CIP and powder coating guarantee elasticity and durability. Featuring eye-catching colours and a modern design, you are guaranteed to enjoy working with these machines that retain their value.
Fenceline Tedding – easy and covenient
Actively setting the wheels at an angle causes the tedder to run diagonally so the forage is directed onto the mown area. Neighbouring crops remain untouched. Because the wheels can be set to the left or right, fenceline tedding can be activated in any driving direction.
An intact swarth is the prerequisite for a full cover, weed-free plant stock in your meadow. PÖTTINGER pays particular attention to this. Especially at headlands there is an increased risk of the outer rotors scraping the ground while the machine is raised. The outer tines do not scratch the ground. The sward is conserved and your forage stays clean. This provides optimum conditions for the best possible processing of plants that are rich in energy.
The hydraulic rotor folding system provides convenient operation from the tractor seat. In the transport position, the rotors can be rotated inwards to ensure safe transport and space-saving parking. The raised rotors are tilted close to the tractor. This provides an optimum centre of gravity. The transport interlock on the top link slot and the optional stabiliser struts guarantee safe road transport. Warning signs and road lights are standard.
The result is – The Best Forage with a Pöttinger teddder
