Cutting Through The Crop Flow

Front mixing discs have notches to handle high residue field trash before it is incorporated by rear tines.

Published on: Nov 22, 2012

The Kverneland CTC trailered cultivator uses a front disc system to cut or incorporate crop residues in front of the cultivator tines. The front mixing disc has notched hollow discs ideal for high amounts of crop residue.

The system cuts through any straw or stubble allowing it to be mixed into the soil with the rear tines. A central depth adjustment allows the disk to follow the lay of the land.

Price ranges from the 13-foot model lists at $50,000, to the 19-foot model at $80,000. ACI Distributors of St. Charles, Mo. distribute Kverneland. For more information call 636-947-4457 or visit www.acidist.com.
