Planting machine

Excellent manoeuvrability

This planting machine is easy to manoeuvre. Dust and humidity mean a high degree of wear in the contact zone of the swiveling wheels. To reduce this, an axial bearing could theoretically be used, but this would be too expensive. The use of steel washers would require daily lubrication. The use of iglide® Z thrust washers made the problems disappear into thin air – without daily lubrication and at low cost.
