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.

“AMAZONE stated that the pulling power requirement was 90 HP (66 kW). We wanted to make sure and deliberately chose a light tractor with 106 HP (78 kW). With sufficient front ballasting we were delighted to be able to maintain an operational speed of more than twelve kilometres per hour even on some slightly sloping terrain.”

Catros discs - extremely precise, extremely shallow

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

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

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

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.

  1. 2-row angular contact ball bearing
  2. 2 x O-Ring
  3. 2 x cast rings with face seal
  4. Face seal built into conical seats
  5. Gear oil filled housing
  6. Proven 1,000,000 times over!

“It is amazing that the disc bearings on the complete machine do not require any lubrication.”

Oversized disc bearings

Due to their even bigger outer diameter, the disc bearings on all Catros over 4 m, the CatrosXL and the Certos-2TX are even more robustly dimensioned. Due to the robust design, maintenance-work and running costs are again kept to a minimum and long life times are guaranteed even under the most arduous operational conditions.

The benefits:

  • Maintenance-free disc bearings with slide seals and life-long lubrication
  • Maintenance-free stone safety protection via rubber sprung buffer blocks
  • Individual disc suspension for optimised contour following and excellent through passage

Aggressively angled discs

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.

Perfect contour following – individually suspended discs

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

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.

Practically orientated down to the last detail:

  • Contour following of the individual disc segments and with built-in overload and stone protection

Optimum setting of the disc row stagger

Thanks to the uncomplicated and compact build, the need for adjustment is kept to a minimum. Only in extreme operating conditions is it necessary that an improvement to the setting of the disc rows needs to be carried out via the offset slide mechanism. So, in cases where the soil has not been loosened across the full working width, the setting of the disc rows can, via the offset slide mechanism, be quickly, simply optimised and without tools. A further advantage is the ability to readjust the disc row stagger when as the discs wear. The adjustment is carried out via the four-sided eccentric block that acts as the limit stop.

On the rigid 3 m and 3.5 m working width Catros, the two disc rows are pushed towards each other with the aid of the offset slide and are locked into the transport position. Prior to operation they then are unlocked again and pushed apart. This sliding action is carried out using the ground resistance.

Optionally available: the comfortable, hydraulically-actuated slide offset.

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

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.

For more operational comfort

In addition, a comfortable hydraulic working depth adjustment is available enabling the easy and precise setting from the tractor cab.

Side discs – for a 100 % working width

Thanks to the folding side discs, the Catros Special, from working widths of 3 m, can be quickly changed from the work position into transport. This means, in use, that the effective working width is always achieved. In addition, they are adjustable and guarantee a very even matching up to the next bout.

“For transport the two side discs have to be folded in. The machine, even with its 3.54 m width in work, remains below 3 m on the road.”
