The new TOP 1403 C is a new offering within Pöttinger’s professional grassland line. Like its smaller brother (the TOP 1252), the new 1403 C is fitted with what the Austrian manufacturer describes as a unique hybrid drive technology. The front two rotors are driven hydraulically while the two rear rotors are mechanically driven.

Rotor weight alleviation is similar, hydraulic on the front and mechanical on the rear. The degree of weight alleviation is automatically adjusted depending on the set working width. Pöttinger says this exerts less pressure on the rotor units leading to less wear and tear.
