The shape and position of the tines are two of the secrets behind the impressive tillage results of Cultus. The tines loosen the soil and give a good mix in of crop residues. The frame height of 85 cm provides a spacious construction that allows soil and harvest trash to be mixed together and passed through the machine. Cultivation is very intensive down to 25 cm working depth.
The tine has a 450 kg release force which ensures perfect depth keeping also in heavy conditions.
The levellers on Cultus level out any furrows left by the final row of tines. Disc levellers are mounted on rubber suspensions, which ensures good contouring also in heavy soils paired with high stone tolerance.
Soil consolidation is an important part of thorough soil cultivation. A good reconsolidation is the key to getting volunteer seeds to germinate, whereby they can be controlled mechanically or chemically. Reconsolidation is also good for preserving moisture in the soil.
SteelRunner is the alternative when more aggressive reconsolidation is required, for example on heavier and stony soils. The SteelRunner can work also in wet conditions and has a good ability to run cleanly thanks to the pending scrapers. The steel packer rings are manufactured from hardened special steel for long life. The profile of the steel packer exerts a slicing and tilling action on plant residues and soil clods.
The 800 mm diameter RubberRunner gives good reconsolidation and is suitable for the light and medium heavy conditions. On light soils the rubber packer is superior thanks to its large diameter. The packer has a high wear resistance. Available for Cultus 420.
