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.
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.
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.
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.
