Väderstad Carrier X 525 in field

Carrier X 425-625

Carrier is a disc cultivator used for high speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables Carrier to handle the versatile challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per hectare and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.

Heavy-duty depth precision

Carrier X 425-625 is a mounted foldable disc cultivator with discs positioned in an x-shape, available in 4.25, 5.25 or 6.25 metre working width. It can be fitted with 450 or 470mm diameter discs.

It has excellent contour following and impressive penetration ability for its weight. The working depth is set from the tractor cab, enabling adaptation to varying conditions in the field.

Väderstad X-disc runs straight behind the tractor

X stands for x-disc

The discs are positioned in an x-shape, which enables the lateral forces to cancel each other out. The x-disc format guarantees that the machine will always run dead straight behind the tractor. This saves diesel but is also essential when using a GPS guidance system or when driving in hilly conditions.

Discs according to requirement

Carrier X 425-625 can be fitted with either 450mm discs or 470mm TrueCut discs. Both discs produces fine tilth optimal for a stale seedbed.

The 450mm disc has small cut-outs, resulting in an intensive cultivation even at a very shallow working depth. The 470mm TrueCut disc has larger cut-outs which can handle more crop residue with increased penetration. 

Adjustable disc angles

To further increase the soil searching ability of the discs each disc hub can be rotated to change the disc angles. 

Tests have shown this technique increases the penetration capacity by up to 50%, compared to traditional solutions with same machine weight.

You benefit from an excellent penetration to weight ratio, as well as the ability to adjust the disc angle according to field conditions.

Full control from the cab

To gain full control, the working depth is controlled hydraulically from the cab. This provides Carrier X with high precision and versatility on varying soil types.

The depth setting is easily carried out, without the need for top link adjustments.

Carrier X easy to manoeuvre

Easy to manoeuvre

Carrier X 425-625 is mounted on the three-point linkage, which offers a high ground clearance and very good mobility. 

The transport width is only 2.4 metres and even when folded you maintain a good rear view from the cab.

You benefit from convenient transport between fields and short turning radius on headlands.

Heavy-duty design for long working life

With a strong tube frame and heavy-duty joints, Carrier X is constructed to withstand heavy stresses. 

You benefit from a long working life with exceptional working results in the field.

Carrier X for harsh environments

By incorporating slurry at the same time as it is applied, more nutrients become available for the subsequent crop. Väderstad has designed solutions to connect a third part slurry distributor head. In order to adapt to the harsh environment associated with fertiliser delivery, Carrier X can be delivered as a slurry edition. 

The kit includes a galvanised frame, piston rod protection, a hydraulic wing lock and stainless steel hydraulic couplings. 

The result is a machine with a very long life in extremely demanding environments.

Product concept

Zone 1 - Intensive cutting and mixing

Two rows of high quality V-55 hardened Swedish steel discs aggressively cuts and mixes harvest residues down to 12cm working depth. The conical shape of the discs ensures a long working life and good crumbling of the soil.

450mm discs

TrueCut 470mm discs

Zone 2 - Reconsolidation

Carrier can be equipped with a wide range of packers, suitable for a wide range of field conditions. The rubber suspension on the packer absorbs shocks and extends the working life of the frame and the packer.
