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.

On grip tines

„Zinken auf Griff“

The “on-grip” tine position has proved its effectiveness particularly when mulch sowing as it guarantees a thorough mixing of soil and organic residues.

When set to “on-grip” the tines break up the soil from underneath creating no smeared horizons. Coarse clods are thrown further than the finer tilth and as a result, the fine soil collects in the lower part of the working zone, while the coarser clods remain on the surface.

The seed is therefore placed in the area where the fine soil is collected with the coarser clods staying on the surface to protect the soil from capping, drying and wind and water erosion, and provide protection for young plants. This creates the optimum conditions for good seedling emergence.

As an option, the standard "on-grip tines" are now offered in a re-inforced Version for an even longer operational life. At the KG Super, these tines come as standard.

As an alternative to the standard tines, the KG Super can be equipped with coated tines (KD) or special potato tines.

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.

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


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


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


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.

RDS Roller Drill System – The system for improved seed emergence and increased yields

Roller Drill System

Roll first, then sow:
The even profile of the seed furrow produced provides the ideal preconditions for an absolutely smooth coulter run and thus the maintenance of an accurate placement depth. So, higher forward speeds than with other rollers are possible. The principle “roll first, then sow” allows the even placement of the seed and thus better plant emergence, irrespective of the soil type, ground conditions or forward speed.

RDS benefits in an overview:
(1) Targeted reconsolidation of the seed furrow via the wedge ring roller:
for the optimum water supply of the seedling, the wedge ring reconsolidates the soil in strips directly in the seed furrow.
(2) Targeted seed placement with the RoTeC Control coulters:
Running directly in the track of the reconsolidated strips, the RoTeC Control coulters run especially smoothly, tracing a very accurate depth and place the seed on the reconsolidated bottom of the furrow.
(3)Targeted seed embedment via the Roller harrow:
the harrow covers the seed with loose soil and here the intensity is adjustable. In addition the rollers then press the soil above the seed.
