Catros Special 2503, 3003, 3503, 4003 mounted compact disc harrow

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros Special Arbeitstiefeneinstellung

Thanks to its simple design, and in working widths from 2.5 m to 4 m, the Catros Special mounted compact disc harrow offers price conscious farms the ideal solution. Due to the well thought-out concept, all the basic settings can be carried out mechanically, simply and easily. The working depth adjustment is done via the quick and easy swivelling in and out of spacers.

Catros discs - extremely precise, extremely shallow

Scheiben Kompaktscheibenegge Catros

The 460 mm diameter Catros discs are the ideal solution for the precise, extremely shallow and intensively mixing stubble tillage. In this way you create the optimum preconditions for both the germination of volunteer grains and weed seeds and a quick straw rotting.

+ Working depths of 3 cm to 12 cm
+ Thickness of the discs 4 mm/disc diameter 460 mm/smooth
+ Very shallow tillage and cut across over the full area
+ Optimum for seedbed preparation

Catros+ discs – for an intensive mixing

Catros+ Scheiben

The serrated Catros+ discs with a diameter of 510 mm are characterised by their more aggressive operation and a more reliable penetration even under difficult conditions. The optimum operational range of these discs is for stubble tillage, seedbed preparation and also the incorporation of catch crop residues.

+ Working depths of 5 cm to 14 cm
+ Thickness of the discs 5 mm/disc diameter 510 mm/smooth or serrated
+ Universal use for a more intensive incorporation
+ More aggressive operation
+ Incorporation of organic fertilisers

Side discs – for a 100 % working width

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros Special Randscheiben

The folding side discs, at the Catros Special from 3 m working width, enable a quick conversion from transport to the working position so that in operation always the actual working width is achieved. In addition, they are adjustable and guarantee a very even matching up to the next bout.

Outstandingly low fuel consumption

With the Catros compact disc harrow, operational speeds of 12 km/h to 18 km/h are achieved problem-free, enabling outstandingly high work rates and reducing the operational time to a minimum. Important, however, for economic success, are both the fuel, and the wear and tear costs.

In order to determine reliable figures for these costs AMAZONE has carried out trials in collaboration with the DLG test centre in Gross-Umstadt. In all the tests, the Catros compact disc harrows proved to be extremely fuel efficient. So when stubble cultivating at a medium working depth of about 6 cm – depending on soil type and ground topography – an approximate fuel consumption of only 4 l/ha was measured. Similarly favourable were the consumption figures during seedbed preparation.

No lubrication ever again – thanks to the maintenance-free disc bearings

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros - Beste Abdichtung für Lager

With no need to lubricate the disc bearings, this results in a significantly reduced overall maintenance time. Face seals have been used for decades in road construction equipment where the rollers on the running gear of caterpillar-tracked vehicles have to be effectively sealed and continue to work absolutely reliably under the toughest of operational conditions.

Aggressively angled discs

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros Scheibenwinkel

With a cutting angle of 17° at the front and 14° to the rear, the Catros, Catros+ and CatrosXL discs are mounted aggressively ensuring the uninterrupted transfer of the soil-straw mixture from the first to the second row of discs resulting in a first class mixing of soil and plant material. Compared with flat angled discs, the discharge angle of the more aggressive disc arrangement is noticeably smaller. In this way the moved soil/straw mixture is redeposited again on the soil surface well ahead of the following roller.
The large discs on the Certos-2TX, with their increased angle of attack of 22° in the front row, are  articularly aggressively mounted so that, even on heavy soils, they leave an excellent working quality with an increase
in the undercut.

 

Perfect contour following – individually suspended discs

Catros Scheibenaufhängung

On all models, whether a Catros, Catros+, CatrosXL or Certos, each individual disc is suspended from the frame on elastic sprung rubber elements which is much better than machines with rigid disc suspension. Every concave disc can individually follow the ground contours, so that not only are the tracks filled up, but they are actually worked up, ensuring an evenly shallow soil tillage operation even with prevailing undulations on the soil surface. At the same time, by suspending each individual disc it allows the optimum passage of large amounts of organic matter in comparison to machines where the discs are mounted in pairs.

Safe and absolutely maintenance-free

Catros Scheiben - Sicher und absolut wartungsfrei!

The elastic sprung rubber elements that suspend each disc, do not only serve to aid perfect adaptation to the ground contours, but also as an overload protection system for the individual discs. The large dimensioned rubber buffer blocks are maintenance-free and feature a long spring deflection that provides you with peace of mind, even in stony ground.
