The trailed powerful tine cultivator Opus 400-700 is designed to create an intense mixing and loosening down to 30cm working depth. Opus is a powerful and versatile tine cultivator with an impressive capacity, able to handle large amounts of crop residues while keeping the draught requirement moderate.
Opus is equipped with robust tines, which mix and loosen the soil down to 30cm working depth. With DeepLoosening points the loosening depth increases to 40cm. The tines have a hydraulic stone release, which can be adjusted variably up to 700kg release force.
Thanks to this high release force and its soil-seeking points, Opus is able to maintain a constant working depth in all field conditions.
The frame is designed for heavy usage in tough conditions. It has three axles and 27cm tine spacing, which ensures an intense cultivation and good throughflow.
The heavy tine cultivator Opus is built around a strong frame which can withstand high stresses extending the working life.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
Equipping Opus 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 a selected depth, thereby providing benefits for the coming crop.
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.
The carrying wheels are positioned in the middle of the machine, which makes Opus both easy to transport and gives it a small turning radius on headlands.
Behind each wheel there is a tine to leave a perfect surface without tracks.
Support wheels on the wing sections ensure that the cultivator works to a constant depth across the entire working width.
Equipped with the mountable small-seeder BioDrill 360, Opus 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.
Hydraulically adjustable rotating levelling discs leaves a smooth surface.The sealed bearings mean that the discs are maintenance-free.
