Right in the heart of the vast outstretched fields, near the German village of Zehbitz the first field day of the spring was held on the 12th of April. STROM had the opportunity to demonstrate its machines (including the new 2012 features)   in a stubble field with second growth. The Field Day was organised in cooperation with the companies Claas and Worch Landtechnik, and attracted a large number of the country‘s specialists.

At separate locations the machines worked in sequence in fields of app.50hectars in size. Each and every single person in attendance had the opportunity to test the machine’s working depth and speed according to their own personal wishes. The demos were guided by knowledgeable experts, who provided commentary and advice related not only to the technical solutions and parameters, but also to the agronomic use of the different machine types.

The first to be shown were the short disc cultivators SwifterDisc XO 6000 and XE 8000 with a disc diameter of 520x5. This was then followed by chisel plows equipped with a hydraulic tine securing system, the semi-trailed Terraland TO 6000 model and the trailed Terraland TN3000H M7R model, both worked the soil to depths of 40 cm.

The demos continued with the disc cultivator Atlas AO 5000 and the cultivator Ecoland EO 4000, both of which were equipped with 60 mm chisels for a maximum working depth of 35 cm. One part of the Atlas was equipped with an innovative new range of discs with edges (A-discs, diameter 620x6mm). A-discs due to their special shape improve the cutting plant residues and "take more clay" from the soil.

The last demo exhibited our wide seedbed cultivator the Swifter SE 10000.  The Swifter worked on seedbed preparation after the Terraland TO 6000 chisel plough. The combination of the Terraland and Swifter machines, the primary Terraland soil preparation reaching a depth of 40 cm in the stubble and then the secondary Swifter seedbed preparation for drilling (planting), showcased perfect soil preparation with high performance. This presents a new direction by using the machines in this combination.
