The NEW Walterscheid top link with integrated shock absorber

4th August 2017

GKN Walterscheid engineers developed an innovative shock absorber mechanism which is directly integrated into the hydraulic cylinder and hence does not require any additional space - This innovative technology provides for markedly increased safety and comfort.

Top Link

The new "Toplink-Feeling"

During operation, the new hydraulic top link allows for considerable extra comfort. In addition, the desired damping rate can be adjusted to individual tractor-implement combinations.

 


Optimised ground contact

Impact loads caused by “bouncing implements” are isolated from the tractor. This results in a markedly improved driving performance due to optimising the ground contact of the front axle.

 

Strong positive evidence

In addition to improved driving comfort, real-world experience also has given clear evidence of reduced component wear.

 

Compatible with your tractor

The new DS hydraulic top links with integrated shock absorbers are compatible and interchangeable with existing standard top links. They can be installed without additional components, and no additional space is required.

    ESI Six Stream Liquid Fertiliser Nozzle

    29th March 2017
    Hypro Logo

    Choosing the Hypro ESI gives the convenience of a compact nozzle without compromising fertiliser placement. The Hypro ESI nozzle applies fertiliser through six stable streams that are offset to give precise and even fertiliser distribution when the spray from each nozzle overlaps.

    The ESI is built into a standard sized Fastcap to easily fit onto a rotating nozzle body, allowing straightforward selection and avoiding the risk of snagging and damage.

  • Six identical fluid streams distribute liquid fertiliser evenly and accurately to the root zone
  • Low pressure distribution chamber achieves high stream stability, helping to minimise leaf retention and crop scorch
  • Compact design is less prone to breakage than longer nozzles and dribble bars
  • Convenient FastCap® style is easy to fit and remove from standard nozzle holders
  • They offer cleaner, easier handling, with no loose parts
  • Large outlet holes to prevent blockage
  • Orifice constructed from durable materials for reduced wear, longer life and consistent application
  • Available in sizes 015 to 20, in ISO colours, for a wide range of application rates from 20 to 1400 l/ha


  • Apply fertiliser to dry crops with moist soil, ideally in overcast conditions with light/ moderate rain imminent.

    Avoid applying during periods of heavy frost, heavy rain, in windy conditions, after periods of drought or shortly after spraying with crop protection products.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE - Hypress 2SC Hydraulic Hose

    1st July 2016
    2SC Hydraulic Hose

    Production volumes of Hypress 2SC hose have now surpassed that of 2SN making it more economical to produce and bringing the prices more into line. 2SC hydraulic hose has the same technical characteristics of 2SN while also offering the benefits of being a lightweight, more compact hose with improved bend radius. It can be used to replace any 2SN hose with the only physical difference being a smaller outer diameter. There is no need to change from your IMM 0022 ferrule, however you will need to adjust your after swage diameter. Please pay particular attention to the below after swage diameter information and ensure your Swaging Machine has the appropriate dies.

    IMM Ferrules
    Hose Number Description IMM Ferrule NEW
    Swage Diameter
    2SC04 1/4" 2SC Hyd. Hose 0022-04 16.7
    2SC05 5/16" 2SC Hyd. Hose 0022-05 18.7
    2SC06 3/8" 2SC Hyd.Hose 0022-06 20.1
    2SC08 1/2" 2SC Hyd. Hose 0022-08 24.3
    2SC10 5/8" 2SC Hyd. Hose 0022-10 27.7
    2SC12 3/4" 2SC Hyd. Hose 0022-12 31.4
    2SC16 1" 2SC Hyd.Hose 0022-16 39.6

    Additionally you will start to notice rebranding of all Hypress hydraulic hose to include the Interpump name. This is due to the recent acquisition of IMM Hypress by the Interpump Group. The Interpump Group is one of the leading worldwide suppliers of hydraulic products with many market leading brands in the group. You can learn more about the Interpump Group @ www.interpumpgroup.it

    Swage Label

    A Yellow label will be on any shipment of 2SC hose to remind you of the new after swage diameters.

    If you have any queries or need any further information please do not hesitate to contact your sales rep or a member of our internal sales team.

  • KOYO Twice The Bearing Life

    Koyo Logo and selection of bearings

    Although already recognised as one of the world’s largest and leading bearing manufacturer and supplier, KOYO have taken major steps to increase its presence in both the Industrial OE and aftermarket business by making significant technological improvements on the standard radial bearing range.

    KOYO have developed and implemented improvements in both manufacturing processes and new steel specifications and this coupled with state of the art testing facilities have provided a much clearer comparison between actual and calculated bearing life. KOYO are proud to introduce a new dynamic load rating of 1.25 x C which now offers the longest service life (2 x calculated life) in the market today.

    GKN Walterscheid ball bushes come out on top in field test research

    Walterscheid Logo and Coupling Ball

    Extensive field tests by the renowned specialist agricultural journal, “Top Agrar”, have very clearly come out in favour of the coupling ball bushes from GKN Walterscheid. “Cheap coupling balls look just like branded products and can cost less than half but this false economy can be highly dangerous”, concludes the report in July 2014. Cheap coupling balls often have a very high carbon content making them harder but also more brittle; this makes them highly susceptible to fracture when subjected to shock loads.

    The material used for the ball bushes from GKN Walterscheid has a low carbon content on the inside. In addition, however, it contains significant quantities of chromium and manganese thus ensuring the alloy is of a considerably higher quality, compared to other products.

    Wear-resistant surface

    In contrast to the material on the inside, a relatively high carbon content is desirable for the outside of the ball bushes. A surface that is enriched with carbon in an elaborate heat treatment process is hard and correspondingly resistant. The ball bushes from GKN Walterscheid are characterised by precisely this combination of maximum wear resistance and a tough core. Ball bushes – and also ball guide cones – from GKN Walterscheid are thus extremely wear-resistant and therefore permit long-term, trouble-free operation.
