TopDown 300-700 is a high intensity multipurpose cultivator, performing both a full-scale shallow cultivation and a deep cultivation in one single pass. By adapting the working result to different conditions in the field, TopDown is a highly versatile multipurpose cultivator with an unmatched performance. TopDown reduce passes, preserves ground moisture, increases capacity and lowers the establishment costs.
TopDown is a multipurpose cultivator, combining an intensive disc cultivator along with a robust three axle tine cultivator in the same machine. The 12.5cm spaced discs on individually suspended disc arms, creates fine tilth by cutting and mixing the top soil. The 27cm spaced tines then loosen and mix the soil and crop residues down to 30cm working depth. In the final two working zones, the leveller and packer then concludes by ensuring an even and fully reconsolidated surface.
The high quality discs are produced using specialist hardened Swedish V-55 steel. The discs provide intensive cutting and mixing of soil and crop residue.
To adapt to varying soil conditions, the working intensity of the discs can be adjusted from the cab on the move.
Thanks to the discs conical shape, they maintain the same working angle relative to the soil, irrespective of wear or working depth.
By performing multiple operations, TopDown is able to create a good seedbed in one pass. You benefit from preserved soil moisture, low soil compaction and high capacity during the most hectic periods at the farm.
With 27cm tine spacing, TopDown intensively mix and loosen the soil down to 30cm depth. With DeepLoosening points the depth increases to 40cm.
The 700kg stone release maintains the correct working depth in all conditions, contributing to an even crop growth.
The result is a very intensive mixing and loosening, combined with an impressive capability to keep the correct working depth at all times.
To meet differing farming needs, Väderstad offers a wide range of points for cultivators and tine harrows. With the right choice of points you are able to optimise the working result on your fields, providing the best start possible for the next crop.
All Väderstad tine cultivators are equipped with the unique MixIn shin as standard. The MixIn shin throws the material forward instead of upwards, which otherwise is the usual direction.
The material thereby passes the tine twice, doubling the mixing intensity both in depth and lengthwise. The benefit of a better depth mixing is that the working depth can be reduced without compromising the result. A good lengthwise distribution gives a more even crop emergence.
In heavy soil the throwing angle effectively breaks the soil flow and leaves it nicely crumbled. The MixIn shins provide superior mixing and crumbling, without increasing fuel costs.
The next step after variable rate application of seed and fertiliser is to apply the same thinking to tillage. Here savings wait to be unleashed using the rule “as much as necessary, as little as possible”. Some of the benefits come as diesel savings and improved soil health, others by the possibility of increasing the working speed as well as reducing the wear. In addition, this enables an autonomous farming future.
The introduction of the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control, opens the possibility to apply prescription map tillage via ISOBUS Task Control.
TopDown has a unique reconsolidation with four different options.
During dry weather weight can be transferred from the cultivator to the packer. During humid weather the packer can float with its own weight. In very humid conditions the packer can either be raised or be completely removed.
The levellers are fitted on a parallelogram, ensuring that the correct working angle is maintained at any depth.
To be able to adapt to varying soil conditions, the driver is able to adjust the intensity of the hydraulic levellers with millimetre precision on the move.
Equipping TopDown with a fertiliser kit allows for fertiliser application together with the tillage operation. The kit includes a distributor head that distributes the fertiliser, metered out from the front hopper Väderstad FH 2200. From the distributor head, the fertiliser is distributed to each cultivator tine. The fertiliser is placed behind each tine at selected depth, thereby providing benefits for the coming crop.
Using the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control, the operator gains full control of the machine directly from the tractor cab. With a touch of a button, the driver can set the individual working depth or intensity of the discs, tines, levellers, or packer on the go. To assist the field work, four pre-set buttons can be used to store different machine configurations.
With the iPad you can upload the most recent program software which allows you to benefit from future developments.
TopDown offers a wide a range of uses covering most requirements put on a modern farming implement.
Equipped with the mountable small-seeder BioDrill 360, TopDown becomes a seed drill allowing fast establishment of small-seeded crops, such as oilseed rape, cover crops or catch crops.
This saves time and helps maintain ground moisture.
The high quality V-55 discs cuts the crop residues and mixes it into the soil. To adapt to varying soil conditions, the working intensity of the discs can be adjusted from the cab on the move.
Hydraulically adjustable rotating levelling discs leaves a smooth surface.The sealed bearings mean that the discs are maintenance-free.
