Carrier X – Lower weight and improved performance

Väderstad Disc cultivator Carrier X SoilRunner

The mounted disc cultivator Carrier X, available in working widths 4.25, 5.25 and 6.25 metres, can be equipped with the packer single SoilRunner. Because of the good working result and low weight of the packer, the foldable disc cultivator gains new benefits in the field.

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.
