Zuidberg takes front linkages to the next level

Lynx Engineering, UK distributor for Zuidberg front linkages, PTOs and track systems, have unveiled a new concept in front linkage design from the Dutch manufacturer. The new Zuidberg front linkage has been developed following extensive market research in cooperation with CAH Vilentum University in Dronten, Holland and with the participation of various end-users and agricultural machinery companies across Europe.

“The central question that drove the research was ‘what are customers most likely to be looking for from their front linkage products in the future, given the increasing importance that end-users are now attaching to factors such as productivity, flexibility, longer service life and lower cost of ownership’.  Zuidberg’s design and engineering teams took up the challenge and have developed a new, innovative and highly efficient front linkage that we believe provides a perfect response to the changing needs of the market,” explained Lynx Engineering Managing Director, Nick Ewbank.

Some of the key features inherent in the new front linkage include unrivalled integration with the tractor make and model for which it is intended, an integrated recessed 7-pin connector and hydraulic connections in the front linkage top plate, increased ground clearance by means of a redesigned cast lifting frame and increased lifting range of 90cm made possible by the use of longer lifting cylinders.

Zuidberg has now also introduced the additional choice of lift height adjustment of the lifting arms and front remote controls are now available for both lifting and lowering and front double acting service lines.

Lower operating costs and increased efficiency have been achieved, says Zuidberg, by ensuring total compatibility with the company’s newly developed High Efficiency Front PTO and, thanks to the more compact construction of the new front linkage design, improved compatibility with front loaders. The new design facilitates the maximum steering angle for a reduced turning circle. For ease of maintenance, Zuidberg has also improved the accessibility of all grease points.

Spotted at Stockton!! Take a look at this beauty we spotted on our travels up to Ripon Farm Services the other week. 6210R with all the Zuidberg bells and whistles, even a front remote control kit. Doesn’t look bad for 7 years old!
