TechTour: When Transport Regulations Inspire Innovation — The Peecon Gull Wing

Peecon_2016_NL107We’re told it’s neither an Autobot, nor a Decepticon, though its name and hydraulic capabilities might suggest otherwise.

Connection plates ensure proper tire alignment when transitioning to field mode, at which point they’re bolted in place. And the shift to transport mode takes 20-30 seconds, says Sjors Van Deursen in this episode of the Techtour, filmed at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany.

The Gull Wing will start hitting commercial markets in March.
