AMAZONE KG Rotary Cultivator

Accessories

Broad roller spectrum

Die passenden Walzen

For areas with ligher soils and for smaller tractors, the light-weight cage roller is available. With the tooth packer roller, an even soil reconsolidation across the full working width is achieved. Wedge ring rollers provide reconsolidation in strips. This are the best pre-conditions for an even growth of the volunteer grain.
The Cracker-Disc- roller improves the structure on very heavy soils and leaves a fine crumbled seedbed.

Wedge ring roller: targeted reconsolidation . . .

Keilringwalze: Gezielt rückverfestigen …

A roller’s primary task is soil reconsolidation. The wedge ring roller uses rubber rings to form reconsolidated strips in which the seed is sown. The harrow that follows it covers the seed with loose soil from the unconsolidated area.
Reconsolidating in strips ensures that the soil structure around the plants is always right for the current weather conditions, and so provides the best chance of rapid, uniform plant development. The wedge ring roller thus serves as insurance for just-in-time tilling.

The wedge rings leaves a homogeneous, pre-consolidated strip without any stud marks. Compared to rollers with other profiles, this is a decisive advantage, resulting, above all, in a smooth run of the sowing coulters.       
As a general rule, enclosed rollers perform better than open rollers, particularly on loose, light soils. Open rollers also become clogged up more easily than enclosed rollers. This is why the rubber rings in the wedge ring roller are fitted onto a closed cylinder. When the wedge rings sink into the soil they are carried across the full length via the centre barrel. There is no chance of sticking, clogging up or blocking!   

 

Amazone Cracker-Disc roller - the wave profile keeps everything performing well!

Amazone Cracker-Disc-Walze

Amazone offers this roller as an additional following alternative for KG, KX and KG rotary cultivators and rotary harrows.

With TL deep loosening: all in one operation

Tieflockerer TL

The compact TL deep loosener, with its 4 tines, makes it possible to loosen the soil down to a depth of 25 cm. With this system, AMAZONE offers the option of plough-less cultivation, even where a high level of straw prevails. Plough-less cultivation in one pass prevents soil compaction in the sowing horizon.

Hydraulic depth control

hydraulische Tiefenverstellung

This can be used to conveniently change the depth from the tractor seat whilst on the move, where, for example, shallow cultivating is required on uneven ground or deep cultivating in hollows. This enables an extremely high degree of flexibility and energy-efficient use.

Oil cooler

Ölkühler

Continuous operation even in very hot climatic conditions presents no problem, thanks to the optional oil cooler.

''Liftpack'' system – easily combined with seed drills and precision air seeders

Hubrahmen

Via the ''Liftpack'' system the seed drill is raised up. For road transport, the centre of gravity is brought closer to the tractor. The vehicle combination is more agile and can be transported more freely.

The Amazone ''Liftpack''system reduces the lifting power requirement by approximately 25 %. During turning, the rotary harrow or rotary cultivator is only slightly raised out of the ground, so that the PTO shaft can continue turning.

The ''Liftpack'' system is also beneficial if the seed drill or precision air seeder need to be worked in solo operation without the rotary harrow.

 

Combination with AD pack top gravity seed drill

Kombination mit mechanischer Aufbausämaschine AD

The AMAZONE pack top seed drill is mounted directly on the tooth packer or wedge ring roller thereby aiding the reconsolidation of the seed bed. The rotary harrow or rotary cultivator thus can avoid damage from stones by being able to move freely upwards. If, however, the seed drill were placed directly on the rotary harrow or the rotary cultivator, the tines and drive would be exposed to an unnecessary risk of damage.   

Combination with pneumatic pack-top mounted AD-P seed drill

Kombination mit mechanischer Aufbausämaschine AD-P

Of course, the construction of AMAZONE pneumatic seed drills is optimally adapted to the rotary harrow or rotary cultivator. Pneumatic sowing combinations from AMAZONE are robust and compact and feature a large seed hopper and a transluscent distributor head. The metering is freely accessible so that calibration and emptying of any residual amounts is easy.   

Wheel mark eradicator

Spurlockerer

Optionally, for both rotary harrows and rotary cultivators the soil can be loosened in the tractor wheel marks with the height and side adjustable eradicator tines. The wheel mark eradicators are equipped with a sprung overload safety device to protect against damage.

Simultaneous sowing: GreenDrill

Gleichzeitig säen: GreenDrill

To enable you to sow intermediate catch crops directly together with stubble work or with soil tillage when reseeding grass, AMAZONE offers the new GreenDrill mounted seeder box. It fits together as well with the Catros compact disc harrow as it does with the Cenius mulch cultivator or the KG rotary cultivator and the KE rotary harrow.      

The GreenDrill seed hopper holds 200 l and is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. Within the metering system located underneath the seed hopper, is a seed shaft that is equipped, depending on the type of seed and the application rate with either fine or normal seed wheels. The drive to the fan and the seed shaft is via an electric motor, or alternatively, hydraulically. 

For the control of the seeder, two alternatives with differing levels of operational comfort are available. The GreenDrill terminal, in its basic format, just provides the switching on and off of the seed shaft and the fan plus the initial setting of the seed shaft speed. Additionally in Comfort specification, the terminal offers a menu selection to support the calibration procedure, a display of the forward speed and both the area covered and the hours worked.
