It's all about angles

Reducing the amount of soil moved and optimizing the machine weight, is important to deliver best possible results as well as minimise the diesel consumption. By adapting the disc angles to the working depth, Väderstad Carrier can do more with less. For the farmer, this is seen in a full cut-out at shallower working depth, as well as an excellent depth keeping and reduced soil flow at deeper working depths.


The rotation angle sets the cut-out surface

By changing the rotational angle (A) of the disc, the cut-out surface is shifted. When working shallow, a full cut-out needs to be achieved with smaller portion of the disc working in the soil. Thereby the disc angle needs to rotate to increase the cut-out surface. At deeper working depth, cut-out is not an issue.

The disc rotational angle instead needs to be optimized for the soil flow. This minimises unnecessary soil moved, to thereby ensure performance, and lower the risk of bulldozing. Both factors have positive impact on the diesel consumption.

The tilting angle adds penetration force

By increasing the disc tilting angle (B) towards the soil, the disc will increase its soil penetration force. With a higher tilting angle at deeper working depth, the disc will thereby add to the depth-keeping ability of the machine.

This improves the depth precision in challenging conditions, ensuring even growth conditions for the coming crop. An alternative solution would be adding weight to the machine, instead costing diesel consumption.
