AMAZONE KW Wedge ring roller

Overview

Overview

The KW wedge ring roller (diameter: 520 or 580 mm) has universal application and is recommended especially where a stripwise reconsolidation of the seedbed is the target. No matter whether under moist or dry conditions, or whether on light or heavy soils, the wedge ring roller always operates reliably. With the aid of rubber rings, the wedge ring roller creates optimally reconsolidated strips precisely ahead of the seed furrow. The gaps in between remain loose ensuring good drainage and allowing the soil to breath. This targeted reconsolidation causes a capillary action which promotes the draw of soil water up to the seedlings. Large amounts of rainfall seep away through the non-reconsolidated areas. Thanks to the reconsolidation in strips an optimum soil structure with the best pre-conditions for an optimum plant growth is created. From choice, the roller is available in row spacings of 12.5 or 15.0 cm. Due to the shaped seed furrow, in addition, a smooth coulter run is ensured. Thanks to the closed design, it provides a good carrying ability without any danger of blockage.
