Lely Tigo S
Working with a loader wagon is the quickest way to harvest your crops.
.Loader wagons can finely chop grass and they have a large loading capacity. The optimum loading of the wagon makes haulage as efficient as possible.
The Tigo S range has a model suitable for all farms. This is due to there being a choice of four different sizes, single or tandem axles and foldable or rigid extension sides. The Tigo ST models have been especially developed for mountainous regions. Their ability to operate in such circumstances is due to the combination of wide track width and a low centre of gravity.
Optimum crop treatment
The swing arm feed unit of the Tigo S ensures optimal crop treatment. The kidney-shaped cam track steers the feed forks through the loading area, smoothly and crop-friendly. The double tines mounted on the feed forks remain in contact with the crop in an ideal angle until they are retracted again.
Unique gear drive
The feed unit is powered by a heavy duty gear drive. Its ability to absorb high loads ensures consistent and smooth running of the wagon. Each feed fork is mounted on two individual roller bearings. From the Lely Tigo 40 S model onwards all bearings have central lubrication as standard.
Perfect cutting quality
All Tigo S models can be fitted with a maximum of 33 knives arranged in two rows giving chop lengths down to 38 mm. The chop length can be adjusted via a lever which selects the required number of knives (0/5/17/21/33). The knife shape ensures an even cutting action. Each knife is protected against foreign objects and can be exchanged without the need for special tools. A blockage can be easily removed by pivoting the chopping unit (hydraulic actuation optional). For sharpening the chopping unit can be easily lowered and for more major maintenance jobs, the unit can be placed on special service wheels.
The only loader wagon with a camless pick-up
The new 1.80 m camless pick-up benefits from galvanizing ensuring protection from corrosive crop residues. The benefit of a camless pick-up is the vast reduction in moving parts meaning that the pick-up is maintenance free. The unit consists of five rows of spring tines which are positioned 54 mm apart to ensure unrivalled raking action giving even, gentle crop flow. The ability of the unit to float combined with its pneumatic pickup wheels ensures precise ground contour following.
Ergonomic controls for relaxed and safe operation
The main functions of the Tigo S are hydraulically controlled via spool valves which may be either cable or electromagnetic actuated.
• Floor chain (standard)
• Pick-up (standard)
• Tail gate (standard)
• Deflecting draw bar (option)
• Superstructure (option)
Heavy duty floor chains for quick unloading
The floor chains, with their infinite speed control, operate almost without any noise. Two 10 mm chains, with a breaking strength of 12.5 tonnes each, and robust carriers ensure that the wagon is unloaded quickly and safely.
Lely Tigo ST
The Tigo ST has been specially designed for use on the steepest slopes. To cope with the special demands of alpine farmers the Tigo ST was designed. T stands for ‘Tieflader’ and refers to the especially low centre of gravity of this particular type of loader wagon.
Wide track width – low centre of gravity
Thanks to their low centre of gravity and 2,120 mm track width, the Tigo ST models are the ideal loader wagons to operate on steep slopes. Depending upon the model, the loading floor height is approximately 25 to 40 cm lower than a standard model, this ensures sufficient stability when working on extremely steep slopes.
