A · · B 4 Hydraulic auto-reset NSH system The main advantages : ·Long life and efficiency : hydraulic technology is more efficient with no wear or friction. ·Lightness : there is a weight saving of up to 25 kg per plough leg compared with mechanical autoreset systems. ·Ease of adjustment : quick and easy adjustment of the pressure at share-point from 700 to 1300 kg. ·Excellent performance : plough leg resseting is positive and firm once the obstacle is passed. ·Compactness : the hydraulic cylinder is integrated into the leg profile to avoid possible trash blockage. ·Exceptional obstacle clearance : the share point can lift to a height of 60 cm with a side to side clearance of 20 cm. The exclusive traction-bolt system offers the following advantages : Clean fracture of the bolt under traction following a force at the share-point of 3000 kg avoids “over-breakage “. · Avoids the problems commonly associated with shear-bolts. · Easy replacement after fracture of the Ø 14 mm traction bolt. · The lack of wear, even after many seasons, ensures that the plough points are always held in line. Two position plough leg In traction bolt models the underbeam clearance can be adjusted from 70 to 75 cm. MASTER 102 SERIES Plough bodies designed to saved cost 1
