KX rotary cultivator

Details

''On-grip'' tines, ''trailing'' tines

Zinken auf Griff, Zinken auf Schlepp

The proven tine quick-change system enables the KX to be converted without tools and in next to no time into a specialist machine which is suited to the particular ground conditions.

On both the rotary harrow and the rotary cultivator, the tines are simply pushed into sockets on the tine carriers and secured by pin and lynch pin. With the rotary cultivator tines, the KX can be switched to the ''on-grip'' tine position, when heavy soil conditions are encountered.  The ''on-grip'' position has proved itself the most ideal for mulch sowing, as an intensive mix of soil and organic residues is ensured.

(1) Tines ''on grip''
(2) Tines in the ''trailing'' mode

Quick-System – Quick tine change system

Schneller Zinkenwechsel

The tines are simply pushed into the sockets of the tine carrier and secured with a lynch pin. It couldn't be easier or quicker as there are no tine fixing bolts that require retightening. Even converting tine operation from “on-grip” to trailing mode is quick and simple. The tines, which are forged from special hardened steel, are elastic and wear-resistant.

Long-Life-Drive – for all rotary harrows and rotary cultivators

„Long-Life-Drive“ Antriebssystem

Quality within the system:
Long-Life-Drive is the optimised drive system for all AMAZONE rotary harrows and rotary cultivators that ensures an extended operating life, maximum smooth running and a high resale value. Gear wheels and bearings run in a single oil bath and so are maintenance-free – there are no grease nipples.

(1) Robust gearbox
(2) Highly-hardened spur gears with large teeth contact area
(3) Exact spacing of all bearing seats for a maximum smooth running
(4) Heavy-duty taper roller bearings with wide spacing between mounting points
(5) Large clearance between tool carrier and smooth trough base for blockage-free mulch sowing and optimum though passage
(6) Double sealing system with cassette sealing ring against oil loss and labyrinth seal against ingress of plant fibres and dirt
(7) Tine carriers and shaft forged forged from one piece and with a large shaft diameter, KE rotary harrow ∅ = 45 mm/KG and KX rotary cultivator ∅ = 60 mm
(8) Quick + Safe System with proven, tool-less tine change solution and integrated stone safety protection

Strong rotor carrier

Stabiles Kreiselelement

The rotor shaft and tine carrier is forged in one piece from high grade steel. The shaft diameter is a heavy-duty 60 mm.
The rotary shaft is supported by bearings with the optimum bearing spacing. Downward sealing is with a special cassette seal with an optimum sealing effect and maximum service life. In addition, labyrinth seals prevent the ingress of plant fibres.

More clearance

Große Bodenfreiheit

The large frame height, the absolutely smooth trough bottom without bracing pieces and the long tines ensure the maximum clearance between the trough and the tine carriers. Even extremely large clods of soil or volumes of straw can therefore pass through without hindrance. The tines have a long service life, i.e. low wearing metal costs.

Safe-System: Integrated stone release

Amazone KE, KG, KX - Integrierte Steinsicherung

The sprung tine fixing system allows the tines to yield when stones are encountered. The tines are firmly clamped in the socket in the centre of the tine carrier. The socket becomes wider towards the outside so that the horizontal part of the tine can twist out of position while remaining sprung. Much of the shock is absorbed when the tip of the tine hits a stone. This tine fixing system ensures the safe operation in stony soils and allows the tines on both the KX and KG to be used in the “on-grip” mode.

Robust trough

The high-standing 8 mm thick gear case made in a trough-type profile with double skin base and welded-in bearing sleeves is extremely resistant to distortion, which enables it to easily withstand the high forces that occur when transporting heavy packer rollers and pack-top mounted seed drills without cumbersome external bracings´. Gear wheels and bearings run in a single oil bath and so are maintenance-free – no grease nipples.

More clearance on the KE, KX and KG

Große Freiräume bei KE, KX und KG

The large frame height, the absolutely smooth trough bottom without housings and the long tines ensure the maximum clearance between the trough and the tine carriers. Even extremely large clods of soil or volumes of straw can therefore pass through without hindrance. The tines have a long service life, i.e. low wearing metal costs. You will achieve an excellent seedbed structure that promotes the optimum field emergence of the young plants.

Levelling board

Planierbalken

The levelling bar levels the flow of soil between rotary harrow and roller, and presses down stones. The levelling bar is set in height comfortably and quickly via a crank handle thereby easily establishing the pre-conditions for an even reconsolidation via the following roller.

''With the large diameter wedge ring roller we achieved a very good performance on medium to heavy soils under a variety of conditions and, last but not least, due also to the (rubber dampened) levelling board. Its height adjustment is carried out via a good ratchet mechanism.''
(profi 8-2013 - Test AMAZONE KG 6001-2 rotary cultivator)

 

Eccentric pins – exact setting of the working depth

Tiefeneinstellung

The working depth of AMAZONE rotary harrows and cultivators can be easily adjusted by repositioning and turning an eccentric pin in 16 different settings. During operation the carrying arm rests underneath the eccentric pin and when lifted it drops onto the gear case trough. In this way, the rotary harrow or rotary cultivator can jump over stones without having to raise the roller and the seed drill at the same time. This saves tines and rotor damage.

Side plates

Seitenschilder

The side plates are mounted on sprung suspension which allows them to yield upwards when stones are encountered. A long carrying arm and sturdy springs also make the KE Super reliable to use on stony, heavy soils. This also applies for all rotary cultivators.

The “extreme” stone test track

Extreme Stein-Test-Strecke

All AMAZONE soil tillage implements are subjected to extreme stresses, being continuously tested on the stone torture track. This is not only for newly developed machines but also as part of series production supervision, meaning they are well prepared for the extremely wide range of operating conditions encountered when in actual use. This makes sure that you have the maximum of reliability with all AMAZONE rotary harrows and rotary cultivators.
