High performance tine cultivator with great capacity and low draught requirements

Swift is a high performance tine cultivator for both wet and dry years, that works down to 20cm. The vibrating tines create a flow of fine soil crumbs that lower the draught requirement and thus also the fuel consumption. The spacious construction can handle large amounts of harvest residues.

Unique frame construction

Round pipe axles are fitted through square-profile pipes. This creates a frame construction with stronger welds and higher durability. Round pipes give a strong, warp-resistant frame and are better at absorbing loads. In round pipes there are no concentrations of stress, since they have the same properties in all directions.
The unique construction with two frame axles, each of which carries two rows of vibrating tines, gives excellent through-flow of large amounts of harvest trash. A smaller front axle with six tines completes the tine distribution on the cultivator. Swift has a strong construction that leads to long life, while also requiring little maintenance.

Depth settings from cab

A large, distinct scale clearly displays the working depth, which is set hydraulically from the cab on the move. The driver can adapt working depth to different soil types or for eliminating soil compaction.




Flexing design

Swift has a flexing design, which means that the wings and centre section follow the contours of the soil independently of each other. All Swift sizes are equipped with large 520 mm carrying wheels on the centre section for stable passage at high speed on cloddy soils.

The 520 mm wide pivoting support wheels on Swift 640, 720 and 870 provide uniform working depth and good responsiveness and the large diameter results in a stable passage after the tractor during intensive cultivation at high speed. The support wheels are controlled hydraulically by a master and slave system. Easily visible scales provide the driver with a fast, clear indication of the pre-set working depth.
For Swift 560, pivoting 400 mm support wheels are available as an option.






Tines with 3-year warranty

The vibrating Swift tines together with the MixIn shin create a fine tilth. The Swift tines vibrate with a frequency of up to 100 times/second. The narrow tine spacing of 19.3 cm permits full mixing in one pass without wide wing points. The incorporation of plant material is completed by the MixIn shin.
The Swift tines have been thoroughly tested and are made from high quality steel. Therefore we offer a three-year warranty against tine fractures.



The 50/80 point offer benefits

The 50/80 point combines the advantages of 50 mm and 80 mm points. Good penetration, low draught requirement and an impressive ability for straw incorporation are some of its main benefits. Together with the 80mm MixIn shin, material flow and straw incorporation are at their optimum.

Hydraulic levellers

The work is finished off by maintenance-free levelling discs. Both the working depth and the levelling discs can be adjusted hydraulically from the cab on the go to ensure optimal results in all conditions.



Several possible toolbars

The high performance tine cultivator Swift can be fitted with either following harrow tines (12 mm) or powerful rebounding tiller tines (9.5 x 45 mm). The following harrow tines give a finer seedbed, while the tiller tines give a rougher levelling effect.   





Hitch on a roller

To achieve sufficient reconsolidation, it is easy to attach a roller using the hitch-on towbar on the machine.


Swift 560 BioDrill BDA 360 

Multiple operations in one pass

With the mountable small seeder BioDrill BDA 360, Swift are be able to establish small seeded crops, such as rapeseed or a cover crop during the cultivation process. Some of the main advantages are reduced operating costs and time saved during a hectic period on the farm.

Swift concept zones 

1. Stabilization pivoting support wheels

Swift 720 and 870 are equipped with pivoting support wheels on the wing sections, while Swift 560 is equipped with fixed support wheels. These support wheels ensure a uniform working depth and give good soil contouring and stable passage when the machine is turning on headlands.

2. Loosening and mixing

With 19.3 cm between the tines, Swift has a denser tine spacing than most other cultivators on the market. This spacing ensures good crumbling of the soil also at shallow working depths.

The continuously vibrating tines help to lower the draught requirement.

The MixIn shin throws soil forwards in a cascade of fine material and plant residues. This is mixed once more when it has landed and the tines pass over and throw it up again. In heavy soil the throw angle effectively breaks the soil flow and leaves it nicely crumbled.

3. Levelling

Rotating levellers level the soil ridge after the last tine row, to ensure a perfect work result. They are hydraulically adjustable from the tractor cab on the go.

The rotating levellers are attached with rubber suspension on a triangular axle. The rubber suspension absorbs impacts and vibrations and thus protects the frame. The star-shaped levellers are manufactured from Väderstad V-55 special hardened Swedish steel, which can endure a high degree of wear.

4. Final touch

Swift can be fitted with following harrow tines or Tiller tines to further improve the working result. The harrow tines stratify the surface layer, bringing the larger aggregates to the top. The heavier Tiller tines will level and give a slight consolidation.
