SpeedBlade Maximum speed – Minimum wear

The new innovative plough bodies

The new SpeedBlade plough bodies with their patented extra-large front shin on the mouldboard and the ©plus hardening process ensure significantly less wear at high forward speeds. As ploughing speeds increase, the wear point shifts further backwards. Wear on conventional plough bodies begins directly on the mouldboard at higher speeds as a result of the small front shin of the mouldboard. Only the front shin of the mouldboard has to be replaced thanks to this patented enlarged front shin. This avoids the long-winded and expensive replacement of the entire mouldboard.

The ©plus tempering process

The know-how of heat treatment

As manufacturers of wearing parts for the soil tillage industry, AMAZONE can look back on a history spanning decades. Continuous advancements in materials and production techniques, as well as our know-how in heat treatment, lies behind the plough wearing metal parts of the highest quality.

Carbon in its purest form, diamond, is the hardest naturally occurring substance. A hardening process involving the introduction of carbon into the steel is used to increase the hardness and durability of plus wearing parts. AMAZONE uses a unique hardening process to achieve a very high level of hardness on the front of components, such as the shin, to produce the optimum resistance to wear. The back remains relatively soft but at the same time extremely tough and impact resistant.

Benefits of the plus hardening process: 

  • Longer service life 
  • High impact resistance 
  • Less pulling power requirement 
  • Reduced fuel consumption 
  • Less sticking to the smoother outer surface

  1. Hardened front of mouldboard
  2. Relatively soft rear of mouldboard

Points – The right point for every application

The advantages of the different points:

Standard point:

  • Angled at the front for optimum soil penetration
  • The point covers the wing
  • Reduced drag thanks to the smooth transition between the point and the front shin of the mouldboard

HD point:

  • Angled at the front for optimum soil penetration
  • Armoured at the rear
  • For particularly tough conditions and a long service life
  • Reduced drag thanks to the smooth transition between the point and the front shin of the mouldboard

Reversible points:

  • With a very shallow angle for clean and effective soil penetration
  • Point can be used on both sides
  • Quick turning for short downtimes

Covered point – Maximum ease of pull of the plough body

Since the point covers the wing, the joint is protected by the point. This clever join up means that no plant residues, baler twine or root remnants get caught in the coulter.

Open frog – To make things easier

The shape of the open frog prevents soil from getting caught underneath. This means that the plough is even easier to pull. At the same time, the solid adjustable support of the slatted mouldboards provides more stability.

Trash boards

A cost-effective alternative to skimmers when incorporating surface crop residues. With additional support on the leg as standard.

Sword landsides

The sword landside is an alternative to the disc coulter, which, especially on heavy, stony ground ensures a clean furrow wall and also reduces the wear and tear on the plough body.

Landside protection

The landside protection increases the area of support of the plough on the furrow wall. This improves plough guidance significantly, especially on slopes. In order to enable the use of wider tyres in the furrow, a furrow-widening plate can be installed as an option on the last plough body.

Disc coulters – A clean solution

The disc coulter is important for a clean ploughing finish. Disc coulters also make a considerable contribution to efficient ploughing. The disc coulters’ precise cutting action helps achieve full inversion and complete incorporation of any crop residues as well as leaving an effective furrow clearance.

The disc coulter is available in a smooth or serrated profile with a diameter of 500 mm and in a serrated profile of 600 mm.

Skimmers – For any situation

M2 skimmer
The M2 skimmer is universally suited for use in grassland ploughing as well as where there are large amounts of crop residues, especially maize straw.

L2 Skimmer
The L2 Skimmer has an even stronger turned shape than that of the M2 Skimmer. It is therefore suitable for the incorporation of extreme volumes of organic harvest residues.

G2 skimmer
The use of the G2 skimmer ensures blockage-free ploughing, especially on heavy and sticky ground or when ploughing grassland for the first time. The easy adjustability of the skimmers means that the finish is left even more precise.
