The packer rings of SoilRunner are constructed with a u-profile, which are designed to be filled with soil. Thereby the packer uses the “soil on soil method”, and the result is a cultivated open surface.
– The soil on soil method is rooted in a strong customer demand of a packer that gives a good structure in light soils, without bulldozing. Additionally, SoilRunner offers the possibility of working the fields also in wet conditions, says Bernt Mårtensson, concept developer at Väderstad.
Since the u-profile of the packer is filled with soil, the wear is reduced.
– Single SoilRunner, which has a diameter of 575mm, has 30% lower weight than the steel packer SteelRunner. Thereby single SoilRunner requires a lower lifting capacity from the tractor, while also keeping the good working results of Carrier X in the field, says Bernt Mårtensson.
