After the successful introduction of the Lely Tigo XR combi loader wagon at the Lely Fielddays in 2012, Lely has further expanded its loader wagon range with the introduction of the new Lely Tigo PR.
It replaces the Lely Tigo R Profi model, with three models in the 31-41 DIN m3 capacity range (PR 50, 60 and 70). The Tigo PR models combine the new features of the Tigo XR such as movable bulk head with the tried and tested capacity of the Tigo R Profi. With their compact build and high capacity, the Tigo XR and PR loader wagons are an excellent choice for large livestock farms and contractors.
After the successful introduction of the Lely Tigo XR last year, Lely has now applied the unique concept of this innovative loader and silage transport wagon to the smaller Lely Tigo PR range. The hydraulically adjustable bulkhead allows the space above the drawbar to be utilised by creating an additional 6 cubic metres in extra capacity. This has resulted in a shorter (1m) and hence more manoeuvrable wagon than comparable machines of the same capacity. In addition it allows the crop compaction pressure to be adjusted ensuring the nutritional value and structure of the crop is maintained. This system also cleverly distributes the weight more efficiently during transport, allowing the wagon to handle better on the road.
Lely will be demonstrating our full range of grassland machinery at Grass and Muck 2014 including Splendimo mowers, Lotus tedders, Hibiscus rakes, Lely Welger balers, Tigo loader wagons and the Storm trailed forage harvester.
