The Cirrus can be equipped with a knife in front of the disc segment as an option. This optional equipment improves field emergence, because additional fine soil is produced by the knife roller. This new combination means that other passes beforehand can be dispensed with.

The knife roller on the Cirrus 6003-2

Preparation for cereals after sunflowers involves cutting the tall stalks at right angles and aligning them in the longitudinal direction by the Minimum TillDiscs. The seed placement accuracy is thereby considerably increased since the sowing coulter is not lifted up by the crop residues.

Even shredding and incorporation of maize stubble helps promote good field hygiene after the maize harvest. The knife roller on the Cirrus 6003-2 saves an additional run with a mulcher, a roller or a disc harrow when cultivating stubbles.

The knife roller improves the flexibility by enabling direct sowing into a standing catch crop. The catch crop is cultivated intensively in a single pass and incorporated in the soil, if necessary.

Long service life

The Cirrus knife roller is characterised by its extreme robustness. The sturdy roller bearing mounts and the knives made from Boron steel are distinctive characteristics and ensure a long service life. The knife fixings are recessed into the round tube on the roller. The enclosed roller core is extremely insensitive to stones and dirt contamination. The knife roller is absolutely maintenance-free as a result of the spherical roller bearings and the face seals. Reversible blades, sharpened on both sides, halve the wear costs.

Perfect working profile

A unique selling point of the knife roller is the V-shaped arrangement of the knives. Lateral pull is eliminated by this special knife layout.
