Extreme xl surpasses itself with the model 1600
The new 1600 model is added to the EXTREME XL series, with an arm of almost 16 metres, installed here on a 200 HP Massey Ferguson latest generation tractor. The arm is entirely built in Domex 700 which gives strength and elasticity to the whole. The first arm is characterised by an internal telescopic section that allows further elongation of the arm. The 2nd arm, on the other hand, with a non-equilateral hexagonal section, which characterises professional HYMACH production, allows for greater structural stiffening, while retaining a high elasticity specifically determined by the type of steel used. The particular shape of the articulated segments, the first extensible arm and the telescopic terminal allow, despite the considerable length of the arm, to work flush to the wheel without encumbering the track and not to cause excessive height-wise encumbrance during transfers to the road. The head with its 150-cm effective cut is made of aluminium alloy to lighten the structure and is arc-shaped to allow the optimal trajectory of the knives and the discharge of the material avoiding accumulations inside.
The aluminium head causes less flex-twist, reduces vibration noise by around 50%, is 30% lighter compared to a steel head, and features less wear of the material as it is protected by the sheet stainless steel placed inside the head (Hymach patent). But what is absolutely new in this equipment is the new automatic opening system of the castle, with control connected to the quick couplings of the tractor. This novelty allows the opening of the body panels without having to dismount the castle at the top. The 2 crossbars are hydraulically raised and lowered and stopped with special pins: this operation speeds up the possibility of intervening in the bonnet/hood of the vehicle for routine and extraordinary maintenance without the use of spanners and effort by the operator.
