Front linkage accessories, tools and attachments from Zuidberg are designed to further enhance the performance of your Zuidberg front linkage and/or PTO. There’s a wide range to choose from and, as you’d expect, they fit together perfectly! Adding a Weight Carrier, ECO-Twin PTO, Accumulator and Pressure Gauge, Easy Float or Front Remote Controls for example, can significantly increase the reliability, ease and efficiency of your work.
Zuidberg’s three-point weight carrier is specially developed for mounting the basic weight of the tractor, which is removed when mounting the front linkage. The weight carrier is tractor-specific, so a perfect, snug fit is guaranteed. Depending on the tractor type, the weight to be added to the weight carrier can range between 700 and 1600kg.
Current tractors can supply the same power even at a lower rpm. The ECO-TWIN front PTO enables you to switch between ‘normal transmission’ and ‘eco-transmission’ from the cabin, allowing the engine speed to be reduced to approximately 1600 rpm. You can choose between two speeds for the PTO:
With EFC you can set any desired value, making the control of your front linkage and front PTO more efficient, more comfortable and safer. EFC can be used on tractors with both electrical and mechanical valves. Features include:
The 7-pole connector gives you the option of electrically connecting the tractor and equipment. The set is supplied complete for mounting to the front of the front linkage. Among other things, the 7-pole connector can supply electricity to:
The chain hook set holds chains or springs that are used to reduce the load on front equipment. The chain hooks offer various options for attaching the chains or springs and are mounted at the right height and width to optimise the load reduction on the equipment. The chain hook set may include the following smart features:
The front hydraulic system offers the possibility to hydraulically operate equipment. A Zuidberg front linkage is often predesigned for mounting one or more front hydraulics sets for optimum integration in the top plate.
Customised front hydraulics:
The DIN plate and connection set offers rapid adjustment of a front linkage to a short mounted DIN plate. The short mounting directly to the lifting frame provides increased stability and a solid construction. In addition, the space for the PTO maintains the option to drive equipment and, due to its use in the front linkage, a lifting mechanism on the equipment itself is no longer required. The Zuidberg DIN plate is constructed in accordance with the DIN standard, and fits almost all Zuidberg front linkages that have a cast-iron lifting frame. Various versions are available, including:
This module features a sliding-scale of pressure relief, guaranteeing perfect ground contour following and reduced ground pressure from the equipment on the front linkage. This prevents wear of the equipment and saves fuel due to the lower friction. Easy Float can be used on tractors with both electrical and mechanical valves. Features include:
This option offers additional protection to the tractor, equipment and front linkage. The Accumulator absorbs peak loads, resulting in increased comfort levels and a prolonged service life of the tractor and equipment.
If you’d like to be able to operate the front linkage from outside the cabin, for example, when hooking up and disconnecting equipment, the front remote control system is a great option. The system is available in various versions and sizes, so please ask your dealer for more details.
The above is just a selection from an extensive range of tools and accessories which also includes a universal lamp set, adjustable height/depth limiter, tractor “A” frame, and lowering speed control set.
