Carrier XT 425-625 - Mounted

Heavy-duty precision

The Carrier XT 425-625 is a mounted foldable high-speed disc with discs positioned in an x-shape. It is available in 13.9-, 17.2- and 20.5-foot working widths with two versatile disc options. It has excellent contour following and with impressive soil penetration for its weight. The working depth is set from the tractor cab for adapting to varying conditions in the field.

Part of the Carrier concept

The Carrier is used for high-speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables the Carrier to handle the various challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow tillage to deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per acre and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.

It's all about angles

A main feature of Carrier XT is its hydraulically rotating disc axles. This allows you to optimize tillage uniformity across the implement at shallow tillage depths, or adjust the angles to achieve deeper working depths. Reducing the amount of soil moved and optimizing the machine weight, you can get the best possible results and minimize fuel consumption. By adapting the disc angles to the working depth, the Väderstad Carrier can do more with less.

Benefits of this system include a full cut-out at shallow working depths, plus excellent depth keeping and reduced soil flow at deeper working depths.

Two disc options

Two disc options

The Carrier XT 425-625 can be fitted with either 17.7" discs or 18.5" TrueCut discs. Both options are capable of producing an ideal field finish and seedbed.

The 17.7" disc has small cut-outs, resulting in aggressive soil movement even at a very shallow working depth. The 18.5" TrueCut disc has larger cut-outs, which can handle more crop residue with increased penetration.

Väderstad X-disc design pulls straight behind the tractor

X stands for x-disc

The discs are positioned in an x-shape, which enables the lateral forces to cancel each other out. The x-disc configuration ensures the implement tracks perfectly straight behind the tractor. Not only does this design save fuel, but it is also essential when using a GPS guidance system or operating in hilly conditions.

Väderstad Carrier XT for liquid manure application

Carrier XT for liquid manure application

By incorporating liquid manure at the same time as it is applied, more nutrients become available for the subsequent crop. So, Väderstad has designed solutions to connect a slurry distributor head. And in order to adapt to the harsh environment associated with fertilizer delivery, the Carrier XT can be delivered as a slurry edition. 

The kit includes a galvanized frame, piston rod protection, a hydraulic wing lock and stainless steel hydraulic couplings. 

The result is a machine with a very long life in extremely demanding environments.
