Pre-working tool options

Front tools for optimum field hygiene

The right combination for any application

The framework conditions for good crop management practices are constantly changing as a result of the increase in the frequency of extreme weather events and stricter regulation of the use of plant protection agents. In order for crops to have the ideal start and growing conditions in their early development, better field hygiene will continue to gain in importance. Amazone therefore offers the right solution for every farm by the wide choice of front tools for the Catros compact disc harrow.

Better levelling and crumbling

Compact disc harrows equipped with the Crushboard are perfect for seedbed preparation, as a powerful crumbling and levelling effect is obtained. However, the Crushboard also offers certain advantages during stubble cultivation. For example, rape pods are pulverised by the Crushboard and volunteer rape is encouraged to germinate to a greater extent. Rape, sunflower and maize stubbles are also opened by the Crushboard, meaning that the subsequent straw rotting process is promoted.

The Crushboard can therefore be adjusted irrespective of the working depth of the disc element. The working depth, and thus the aggressiveness of the Crushboard, is hydraulically adjusted from the tractor seat. The driver can easily tailor the setting to the respective conditions via the hydraulic adjustment.

Advantages of the Crushboard

  • Equipped with convenient, infinitely variable hydraulic depth adjustment and an easy-to-read scale as standard
  • Even better crumbling and levelling

Knife roller

Shredding and incorporation of crop residues or catch crops

The out-front knife roller on the AMAZONE compact disc harrow provides maximum flexibility for optimum soil tillage. The knife roller permits extremely shallow soil tillage with simultaneous shredding of the stubble, such as during the initial stubble cultivation after rape. However, the knife roller is also ideal for working in tall catch crops, maize stubble or sunflower stubble. In particular, long stubbles are cut transversely to the direction of travel and then incorporated with the subsequent disc element.

The roller is lowered into the working position from the tractor seat during work. By dividing the knife roller into segments, it means that the roller can follow the ground contours perfectly, even in uneven terrain, and can effectively shred any lying crop residues across the entire working width.

Advantages of the knife roller

  • Optimum shredding results owing to the high circumferential speed with a roller diameter of 330 mm
  • Excellent contour following thanks to individual roller segments
  • No side pull during work, as the blades are arranged on the roller in a V-shape
  • Maintenance-free bearings with a long service life thanks to a metallic face seal
  • Insensitive to stones and dirt due to the enclosed design of the roller centre shaft
  • Wear costs halved thanks to reversible knives with two cutting edges, made of tempered drill steel
