The hydraulic system features intelligent piston pumps with individual electronic controllers that allow exact adjustment of the flow required for each function, without wasting power. The Closed Circuit of the traction system, in addition to the new pumps, also has an electronic fault system, which acts in an emergency situation, increasing the safety of the operation.
Another New Closed Circuit is the Chopper System, which allows working at higher pressures and smaller engines, contributing to cost reduction and increased hydraulic efficiency.
Due to the better efficiency of the pumping set for harvesting functions, there is less heat generation, allowing the system to work with lower temperatures in the hydraulic oil, increasing the useful life of the components and reducing fuel consumption.
Another major evolution of the New Hydraulic System of the Austoft 9000 Series sugarcane harvesters is the high abrasion resistant hoses, arranged in an optimized routing, reducing the number of failures during the harvest, and contributing to the reduction of downtime and hydraulic oil consumption.
