SWIFTERDISC XE Disc cultivator

SWIFTERDISC-XE_mobile_1
  • Wide disc cultivator for enormous daily output.

  • Fast operating speeds of up to 15 km/h due to the customized design.

  • Folds up in a forward motion.

  • High quality, swift, inexpensive stubble cultivation of up to 12 cm.

  • Zero-maintenance bearing discs lasting for a lifetime.

  • The performance of the 520×5 mm discs is not affected by wear and tear due to the truncated cone shape.

SWIFTERDISC XE is trailed wide disc cultivator in a compact design with individual suspension of the discs with rubber segments, which make the machine ready for high quality, swift and inexpensive post-harvest stubble cultivation or seedbed preparation.

Thanks to the broad working width combined with high speeds, a massive daily output can be achieved.

The unique folding system allows the machine to be compacted in a forward motion resulting in smaller dimensions for transportation.

Each arm is fitted with a pair of discs (Twin-Disc system).

MACHINE TYPE

trailed disc cultivator of short conception

WORKING TOOLS

2 rows of serrated discs 520×5 mm (serrated discs with constant geometry or uniquely profiled A-discs), rear packer
(tube, steel ring, roadpacker, V-ring, double U-ring, double packer, roadpacker, cutpack – for more see p. 60)

SECURING

each arm with zero-maintenance rubber segments

USAGE

swift, low cost stubble cultivation, seedbed preparation

WORKING OPERATIONS

loosening of the surface layer, cutting and uniform mixing of crop residue, disruption of capillarity, settlement and compaction

Excellent treatment of shallow soils, evenly mixing crop residue over a wide area.

AGRONOMIC ADVANTAGES OF THE MACHINE

  • The stubble cultivated immediately after the harvest takes advantage of the higher soil moisture content.

  • Fast stubble tillage forms the foundation for a managed germination process of second growth and weeds following the harvest.

  • Shallow tillage means greater humus content in the upper soil layer creating a more permeable soil (no soil crust).

  • Fine crumbling due to the high speed of the machine and the resulting high circumferential speed of the packers, which delivers a flatter field without clods.

  • Compaction of the cultivated surface ensures the even germination of volunteer plants and weeds.

  • Agrotechnical deadlines are met as a result of the machine’s high performance and coverage.

  • All-purpose tool for stubble tillage, soil preparation and intercropping with an Alfa Drill.

COST SAVINGS BENEFITS

  • Quality tillage in one pass – one pass instead of many, quality cutting, mixing and incorporation of plant residue due in particular to the profiled aggressive A-discs.

  • High operating speeds – means cutting costs and the number of hours spent out on the field. the high speeds are reached thanks to the high stability of the machine.

  • Large area capacity – SwifterDisc is a light disc cultivator which can be connected to tractors of lower output, while the operating width and operating speed guarantee unusually high performance.

  • Low maintenance costs – the components have a longer lifespan.

SWIFTERDISC XE

YOU CAN USE THE SWIFTERDISC FOR

  • Shallow and fast stubble tillage to stimulate volunteer plant and weed germination and prevent capillary action.

  • Maintain the moisture in the soil by compacting the surface with a rear packer immediately after the harvest.

  • Seedbed preparation which includes levelling the furrow.

  • The incorporation of plant material such as intercrops.

  • Planting intercrops and grasses using an Alfa Drill.

BETTER QUALITY WORK

A-DISKY NOVÁ DIMENZE KVALITY PRÁCE

A-DISCS A NEW DIMENSION TO WORK QUALITY

Specially shaped discs of 520 mm in diameter and a wall thickness of 5 mm with significantly high cutting and mixing abilities compared to other classic cutting discs. A-discs have a large number of blades around their circumference for the easy incorporation of large amounts of crop residue. These sharp blades cut up the crop residue efficiently. The profiled shape also allows a larger amount of soil to be lifted up than with standard serrated discs. Each profiled disk takes soil and takes it to the plant mulch where it is mixed. This concept delivers excellent results.

TWIN–DISC LEPŠÍ PRŮCHODNOST

THE TWIN-DISC ENSURES A BETTER THROUGHPUT

The discs work in pairs on one arm. This solution means the distance between each arm is larger (50 cm). This results in more space for the material to pass through the machine. The machine can work smoothly even when the combine has left clumps of straw on the field. SwifterDisc cuts it up, spreads it out, mixes it with soil and covers it.

WHY SHOULD THE CULTIVATION BE DONE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE HARVEST

The foundations for successful crop growth are laid when harvesting the previous crop. By tilling the stubble immediately after harvest, you can use the moistness of the soil, which was protected from the sun by the stems.

Fast tilling ensures the reliable and even germination of volunteer plants and weeds. The basis for success here is a short interval between the harvest and sowing. Whether the farming is done by using a minimum-tillage system or a conventional method it is irrelevant.

SWIFTERDISC XE

STABLE TILLAGE, FLAT LAND

For tillage, a level surface must be maintained both horizontally to the direction of work and along the direction of work. To achieve flat land without mounds, the machine must operate smoothly and in a stable manner.

Any unwanted movement of the machine through, e.g. rocking, creates an uneven field. Till with the stable SwifterDisc with its cleverly positioned centre of gravity.
