The new generation ultra-shallow tillage
Väderstad CrossCutter Disc opens up extended possibilities for effective tillage and improved field results in a wide range of conditions. CrossCutter Disc performs outstanding in oilseed rape stubble and in cover crops, while also enabling great advantages in grain stubble and on ploughed land.
Full cut-out at ultra-shallow working depth
CrossCutter Disc works very intensively with a low horsepower requirement, at ultra-shallow working depth and high speed up to 20km/h.
CrossCutter Disc can be fitted to the versatile disc cultivator Väderstad Carrier, available from 3.0 to 12.25m working width.
Less fuel - higher speed
Since CrossCutter Disc work in ultra shallow working depth at 2-3cm it will move substantially less soil than a conventional disc. This means less fuel used, whilst increasing the working speed. CrossCutter Disc work at its peak level in driving speeds between 15-20km/h.
Excellent in oilseed rape stubble
Because of its disc shape and high quality Swedish steel, CrossCutter Disc provides full cut-out and intensive mixing at ultra-shallow working depth.
This creates an extensive stale seedbed, which later can be eliminated with a second pass to provide good field hygiene for the next crop.
Mulching of cover crops
When terminating a cover crop, the full cut-out of CrossCutter disc provide great benefits. Working intensively at 0-3cm working depth, CrossCutter Disc avoids any deep mixing of cover crop residues. This eliminates the cover crop, while also minimising the risk for problems in the following crop
The multipurpose disc
CrossCutter Disc shows great results in grain stubble, where its intense shallow cultivation will help fight grass weeds, such as blackgrass. In ploughed land the robust construction and high quality Swedish steel is able to create a seedbed.
One disc – One arm
CrossCutter Disc is fitted to the versatile disc cultivator Väderstad Carrier. Since each CrossCutter Disc is individually mounted to its own rubber suspended disc arm it has a great ability to follow the ground contour, thus ensuring very even results. You benefit from high precision without compromises.
Designed for top performance
CrossCutter Disc might appear to do the same work as a conventional wave disc. Because of three major differences, the work result is however completely different:
- The thickness of the CrossCutter Disc profile is 11.5cm, compared to industry standard 5cm.
- CrossCutter Disc work at ultra-shallow depth at 2-3cm.
- The disc angle is optimised to maximise results.
Together these features ensures that CrossCutter Disc delivers a surface completely cut out. This is impossible with a conventional wave disc, which is constructed to cultivate a narrower path.
Swedish steel – Swedish quality
The Väderstad V-55 Swedish steel combines a very high hardness with a preserved shock resistance. Compared to industry standard, the unique Väderstad V-55 pushes the hardness level from standard HRC 47-48 to HRC 55. You benefit from lower wear part costs and less downtime.
