Disc element

The front disc element – perfect shredding and mixing

The front discs distribute the organic matter by intensively shredding and mixing the crop residues on the soil surface. At the same time, a finely crumbled structure occurs within that top soil layer. This creates optimum conditions for rotting on the one hand and excellent germination and emergence conditions on the other. The working depth of the disc element is adjusted via a parallelogram linkage, whereby the intensity of engagement can be changed by turning the disc element.

Perfect – the individually suspended discs

Each individual disc is suspended from the frame on elastic sprung rubber buffer blocks across all models. This is much better than in machines with a rigid disc suspension, as each concave disc can individually follow the ground contours, meaning that wheel tracks are not simply just filled in but worked intensively. This makes for a consistent shallow tillage, even if the soil surface is uneven. At the same time, the individual suspension of the discs enables the optimum passage of large amounts of organic matter in comparison to machines where the discs are mounted in pairs, thereby increasing the through-flow.

Catros+ discs – for more intensive mixing

The serrated, 510 mm diameter Catros+ discs 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.

Reliable and absolutely maintenance-free!

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

Cenius face seal

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 rollers on the running gear of caterpillar-tracked vehicles have to be effectively sealed and work with complete reliability under the toughest of operational conditions.

The benefits:

  • Optimum levelling by means of spring steel tine levellers or levelling discs
  • The height and angle of the outside discs can be adjusted separately for a perfect profile when matching bout to bout  
  • Maintenance-free disc bearings with face seals and life-long lubrication
  • Maintenance-free stone protection via sprung rubber buffers as standard

  1. 2-row angular contact ball bearing
  2. 2 x seal ring (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!
