Opus 600 cultivating field

Opus 400-700

Power and versatility

The trailed powerful tine cultivator Opus 400-700 is designed to create an intense mixing and loosening down to 30cm working depth.

Opus is a powerful and versatile tine cultivator with an impressive capacity, able to handle large amounts of crop residues while keeping the draught requirement moderate.

Extremely powerful tines

Opus is equipped with robust tines, which mix and loosen the soil down to 30cm working depth. With DeepLoosening points the loosening depth increases to 40cm. The tines have a hydraulic stone release, which can be adjusted variably up to 700kg release force.

Thanks to this high release force and its soil-seeking points, Opus is able to maintain a constant working depth in all field conditions.

Heavy-duty frame

The frame is designed for heavy usage in tough conditions. It has three axles and 27cm tine spacing, which ensures an intense cultivation and good throughflow.

The heavy tine cultivator Opus is built around a strong frame which can withstand high stresses extending the working life.

Wide choice of points and shins

To meet differing farming needs, Opus can be fitted with a wide range of points and shins. The tine is constructed as a modular system, enabling quick change and high versatility.

With the right choice of points and shins you are able to optimise the working result on your fields, providing the best start possible for the next crop.

MixIn - double mixing and crumbling

All Väderstad tine cultivators are equipped with the unique MixIn shin as standard. 

The material thereby passes the tine twice, doubling the mixing intensity both in depth and lengthwise. The benefit of a better depth mixing is that the working depth can be reduced without compromising the result. A good lengthwise distribution gives a more even crop emergence. In heavy soil the throwing angle effectively breaks the soil flow and leaves it nicely crumbled.

The MixIn shins provide superior mixing and crumbling, without increasing fuel costs.

Completely versatile reconsolidation

Completely versatile reconsolidation

Opus has a unique consolidation with four different options. During dry weather weight can be transferred from the cultivator to the packer. During humid weather the packer can float with its own weight. In very humid conditions the packer can either be raised or be completely removed.

Always a level field

The levellers are fitted on a parallelogram, ensuring that the correct working angle is maintained at any depth.

To be able to adapt to varying soil conditions, the driver is able to adjust the intensity of the hydraulic levellers with millimetre precision on the move.

Easy to maneuver when turning

The carrying wheels are positioned in the middle of the machine, which makes Opus both easy to transport and gives it a small turning radius on headlands.

Behind each wheel there is a tine to leave a perfect surface without tracks.

Support wheels on the wing sections ensure that the cultivator works to a constant depth across the entire working width.
