Catros Special mounted compact disc harrow
The Catros Special mounted compact disc harrow is ideally suited for fast, shallow and intensively mixing soil tillage. With its robust design, and in working widths from 2.5 m to 4 m, it is the ideal entry-level model for the small to medium-sized farm.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|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. The large discs on the Certos-2TX, with their increased angle of attack of 22° in the front row, are articularly aggressively mounted so that, even on heavy soils, they leave an excellent working quality with an increase in the undercut.
|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.
|Depending on the kind of soil, the range of following rollers are designed to provide intensive crumbling and reconsolidation. Changing rollers just requires a pair of brackets to be loosened. The large distance between discs and following roller ensures that the soil settles again and can be perfectly reconsolidated by the following roller.
|Following rollers and harrow combinations
|The perfect supplement for seedbed preparation
For seedbed preparation for maize or sugar beet, the AMAZONE compact disc harrows can be equipped with a variety of rollers in addition to a following harrow. The following harrow creates a very fine-crumbled soil surface structure and thus the perfect germination conditions for the following crops. An additional advantage when using the harrow is the optimised straw distribution.
