Carrier 420-820 is a trailed disc cultivator, available in working widths between 4.2 and 8.2 metres. It can be fitted with 450 or 470mm discs. Whether you require a stale seedbed, levelling of ploughed land or cover crop incorporation, the wide range of front tools offer versatility to different farming requirements.
Carrier is a disc cultivator used for high speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables Carrier to handle the versatile challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per hectare and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.
Carrier 420-820 can be fitted with either 450mm discs or 470mm TrueCut discs. Both discs produces fine tilth optimal for a stale seedbed. The 450mm disc has small cut-outs, resulting in an intensive cultivation even at a very shallow working depth. The 470mm TrueCut disc has larger cut-outs which can handle more crop residue with increased penetration.
CrossCutter Disc performs outstanding in oilseed rape stubble and in cover crops, while also enabling great advantages in grain stubble as well as on ploughed land. Because of its disc shape and high quality Swedish steel, CrossCutter Disc provides full cultivation and intensive mixing at shallow working depth. This means that an extensive stale seedbed is created over the entire field.
Large combines tend to have a poor straw distribution, leading to an uneven emergence of the next crop.
Equipped with the straw harrow Carrier not only cuts, but also distributes straw in the same pass. Well distributed straw is crucial to provide the following crop with the same conditions over the entire field.
To meet differing farming needs, Väderstad offers a wide range of discs for disc cultivators. With the right choice of discs you are able to optimise the working result on your fields, providing the best start possible for the next crop.
By equipping Carrier 500 and Carrier 650 with the intensive knife roller CrossCutter Knife, crop residues can be cut in two directions. Weeds and small-seeded crops, such as oilseed rape, profit from an improved germination. A benefit after grain or sunflowers is the intensified chopping of the straw, giving a faster decomposition. Additionally, cover crops can be crushed and incorporated cost efficiently.
With CrossBoard Heavy, clods are crushed and the soil is levelled. A double acting stabilising bar increases levelling capacity.
The CrossBoard is equipped with master and slave cylinders, which ensures a level work result by maintaining the position of each CrossBoard section.
On ploughed heavy land, CrossBoard Heavy enables Carrier to prepare a well prepared seedbed which in turn reduces the number of passes required.
Carrier 420-820 uses the unique Väderstad folding system, giving a fast transition from field to transport. When folded the transport width is only 2.5m.
The folding technique gives the machine a low centre of gravity, resulting in safe manoeuvring.
Carrier 420-820 can be equipped with the mountable small seeder BioDrill 360, enabling it to drill with high precision in the same pass as cultivating.
The integrated ground radar provides perfect speed detection, whilst the high fan capacity ensures equal distribution of all seed sizes.
BioDrill saves time and helps maintain ground moisture.
Two rows of high quality V-55 hardened Swedish steel discs aggressively cuts and mixes harvest residues down to 12cm working depth. The conical shape of the discs ensures a long working life and good crumbling of the soil.
