The Technology

Leave stonesTrailing tine geometry

The dragging tine leaves soil, stones and foreign bodies in place and thus picks up the crop cleanly from the ground.

No aggressive ground contact possible

Due to the dragging geometry, aggressive ground contact is not possible at all. This is an enormous advantage in practice.

Stones and foreign bodies remain lying

Contact with stones and foreign bodies is repellent. As a result, they remain on the field. The following harvester is protected.

Less wear and breakage on the tines

Due to the low load on the tine legs, there is significantly less wear. The tines are protected and have a very long service life.

Tine arms do not bend when cornering

A surprising but obvious practical result. The Respiro pick-up technology knows almost no bent tines. The dragging geometry is the reason for this. An advantage that practitioners are enthusiastic about. Tedious tine alignment is a thing of the past.

Plant stems are not uprooted

This is particularly important with maize straw. Stalks cannot be uprooted, so neither stones nor soil get into the straw. Ideal for minimising wear on subsequent cutterbars.

Additional gentle ground hugging

Due to the trailing tine geometry, ground contact is always gentle. For short bumps, etc., additional ground hugging can thus be achieved. This protects the entire system.

Slurry particles remain on the ground

Slurry particles that have dried up in the grass stubble are a major problem for the rotor rake and also for belt rakes with rigid pick-up and aggressive tines. RESPIRO technology sets a completely new standard here too. The light slurry particles remain in the field. Forage quality at its best.
