BEDNAR Presents the Novelties for 2019
BEDNAR presents the novelties in its machine portfolio. In 2019, a total of 7 machines will be introduced to the market, from soil cultivators to seed drills and fertilisation machines.
ATLAS AO_PROFI disc cultivator for precise soil cultivation
The new ATLAS AO_PROFI disc cultivator will please even the most demanding customers with its design and controls. The hydraulic regulation of the main working parts is a must these days but ATLAS AO_PROFI is equipped with electrohydraulic regulation, which is a new dimension in the comfort of controlling BEDNAR FMT machines. In addition to easy depth setting of the disc section, the new machine control system also provides a lot of other auxiliary functions, such as step recess of the working depth of discs to overcome elevation and returning to the original working depth, correction of disc wear and other.
The machine is equipped with single-disc units with a diameter of 620 mm and thickness of 6 mm, arranged in the shape of an X. This system of disc arrangement provides direct machine guidance in the tractor axis. Each disc unit is equipped with a non-stop spring protection, which ensures quality work even in rocky soils.
The design of the disc cultivator makes it suitable for use in both minimising and conventional soil cultivation technologies. BEDNAR FMT currently offers ATLAS AO_PROFI in two working widths: 5 and 6 metres.
The wide ATLAS AE_PROFI disc cultivator for enormous daily outputs
The heavy and wide ATLAS AE_PROFI disc cultivator was first introduced at the international AGRITECHNICA fair in 2017. After the challenging tests, this machine concept is now being introduced to the market.
A great advantage of this machine is the simple and comfortable electrohydraulic control of all functions directly from the tractor cabin, which especially the operators will appreciate. To connect the machine to the tractor, you only need three hoses for the Load Sensing hydraulic tractor output. The machine control is compatible with standard ISOBUS.
The precise guidance of the machine in the tractor axis is provided by the X-shaped disc arrangement. The machine is equipped with discs with a diameter of 620 mm and a thickness of 6 mm. The single-disc units are equipped with a non-stop spring protection.The working depth of the discs is set against the transport wheels, the supporting wheels, and the rear double rollers, which provide higher stability of the machine.
The ATLAS AE_PROFI machine is designed to turn at headlands using the transport axle, double rotating wheels and rear double rollers. This system reduces the stress in the frames and joints, which increases the service life of the machine. The design of the machine allows for an easy, safe and fast transport on roads within the EU rules.
The ATLAS AE_PROFI disc cultivator is designed for large daily outputs and savings in the operating costs, thanks to the large width of the machine and high working speed. It is suitable for performing quality stubble cultivation along the entire width with the option of incorporating a large quantity of crop residue. It is now available in two versions, with working widths of 10 and 12.4 metres.
VERSATILL VO_PROFI is a universal share cultivator that BEDNAR introduced as a study at the international AGRITECHNICA fair in Hannover, Germany, in 2017.Since then, the machine has gone through extensive testing in various conditions and it is now offered for sale.
STRIP MASTER EN
The new STRIP MASTER EN cultivator by BEDNAR fills in the gap in the portfolio of the BEDNAR machines. The machine was designed on the basis of the requirements of farmers, climatic and legislative changes. It is designed for strip soil cultivation with the option of applying fertiliser at two layers.
The lighter version allowing for planting various types of crops and applying fertilisers with a large seeding amount variation is a novelty among the BEDNAR seed drills. This seed drill has been tested extensively in various soil conditions throughout 2018.
The calibration and potential emptying of the hoppers is easy thanks to the location in the rear part of the machine. The seed drill control is simple and intuitive. The dispensing system is fully electronically controlled and works on the basis of the ISOBUS system, similarly to the previous versions of the OMEGA seed drills.
The innovated electronic control system now allows the tractor operator to easily control the machine settings (disc depth, front leveller, rear accessories, depth of seeding, drill coulter pressure). Also, the software now supports the functions of Section-Control (up to two sections) and Multi-Control (variable dispensing from up to two seeding mechanisms).It is possible to select between 12.5 cm and 16.5 cm for the inter-row spacing of the drill coulters.
The OMEGA OO_FL seed drill is suitable for seeding both in conventional technologies (tillage) and minimisation systems. The fertiliser can be applied into the inter-row between the seeds, onto the surface, or together with the seeds. The PSP system ensures that the double-disc drill coulters place the seeds at an identical depth along the entire width of the machine and perfectly trace any terrain unevenness in both longitudinal and transverse direction.
ALFA DRILL is another novelty by BEDNAR. It can be installed on various types of machines in the BEDNAR portfolio. It is used for planting catch crop, grasses, or for all-area fertiliser application. It helps increase the ratio of organic matter and improves soil structure thanks to the use of catch crop.
FERTI-BOX FB_F DUAL
The front mounted fertiliser hopper, FERTI-BOX FB_F DUAL has a dual-chamber pressurised hopper with a total capacity of 2200 litres in the ratio of 70:30. It has two dispensing mechanisms with electric drives allowing to change the dispensing amount according to the agronomic need. Dispensing is controlled via ISOBUS.
