Väderstad introduces the new Marathon 15/25 tine harrow point, which provides guaranteed working depth in the heavier soils. Together with the wider Marathon 25/35, the tine harrow Marathon family is now complete.
The 15/25 is a further specialization addition to the Marathon 25/35 introduced in 2018.
– Don’t be fooled by the smaller size, this is an extremely tough point. It has a narrow bottom of just 15 millimeters with a pointy shape, which means that it can maintain the working depth even in tough soil conditions with heavy clay. It has an even higher soil penetration ability than the Marathon 25/35, says Magnus Samuelsson, Concept Developer at Väderstad.
The 15/25 point is adjustable in height, each individual point can be set in five different positions, this enables adjusted depth in i.e. tractor tracks.
Like all Marathon Points it has a tip made of wolfram carbide, an extremely tough and durable material. It’s produced by mixing wolfram carbide with cobalt or nickel in very high temperatures, to create one of the toughest materials on the market. That’s why a Marathon point lasts up to ten times longer than a regular point.
– A machine from Väderstad equipped with Marathon points guarantees that the working depth will be maintained over time. This is extremely important since varying working depths has a direct impact on the seeding results and thus the emergence. In a working depth of i.e. four centimeters, every centimeter deviation has a yield impact. Therefore the importance should not be underestimated says Magnus Samuelsson.
The Marathon 15/25 will be available from June 1st 2020 for the NZ Mounted and the NZ Aggressive. In addition it is also available for the Concorde.
