Swift

Swift is a flexible cultivator with low draught requirement.

Flexible cultivator

Swift 560

Swift is an efficient stubble cultivator with a high work rate designed for stubble cultivation down to 18 cm at a low fuel consumption.
Swift is a low-cost machine to own, run and maintain.

Swift is characterised by its high flexibility, good mixing ability, high levelling capability and low draught requirement. Swift can be used also during wet years since it lacks integrated packer. It is easy to connect a roller onto the extension drawbar of the machine if additional consolidation is needed.

Swift and RollexSwift can be equipped with a hitch-on drawbar. This makes it easy to hitch on a Rollex or Rexius roller behind to increase the consolidation effect.

Dense tine spacing

With 19.3 cm between the tines, Swift has a denser tine spacing than most other cultivators on the market. The vibrating tines equipped with points and MixIn shins create an impressive flow of soil and produce intensive mixing of crop residues. The even distribution of tines inside the machine ensures a uniform soil flow adding to a level work result.

High levelling capacity

The levelling discs effectively work the surface after the tines and ensure that all ridges are worked in effectively. They are easily adjustable hydraulically from the cab on the go. The levelling is finished off with a row of following harrow or Tiller tines to ensure the perfect even surface.

Working widths

Swift is available in working widths of 4.0 – 8.7 m. All models have 3 m transport width. The working depth is set hydraulically on 5.6 - 8.7 m models and mechanically on 4.0 and 4.4 m.

Tested in tough conditions

The Swift has undergone rigorous testing. After several tests in our labratory, it has been followed by tests in the Väderstad stone quarry. It is also tested in the field under toughest possible conditions.

Saves time, saves fuel, saves money!

1. Stabilization pivoting support wheels

Swift 720 and 870 are equipped with dual, pivoting support wheels on the wing sections, while Swift 560 is equipped with single 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.
