Catros XL mounted compact disc harrow
Due to its open frame design and the large through passage potential, the CatrosXL compact disc harrow is optimally suited to farms with much organic matter. Due to the large diameter, fine or coarse serrated, 610 mm discs, working depths down to 16 cm are no problem. In working widths of 3 m to 4 m and operational speeds of 12 to 18 km/h, high acreage outputs with an excellent quality of work can be achieved.

|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.
|CatrosXL discs – for larger amounts of plant organic matter
|The 610 mm serrated and finely serrated CatrosXL discs allow a deeper cultivation and yet still maximum mixing. The perfect penetration even under most arduous conditions guarantees working depths up to 16 cm so that a homogeneous mixing is achieved. This is optimal for the incorporation of catch crops and grain maize 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.
|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
|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.
|GreenDrill – mounted seeder box for fine seeds and catch crops
|AMAZONE offers the GreenDrill catch crop seeder box so that catch crops can be applied directly or together with the soil tillage operation. It can be combined with the Catros, CatrosXL and Certos compact disc harrows as well as the Cenius mulch cultivator, the KG rotary cultivator or the KE rotary harrow. The seed is distributed evenly by the spreader plates. The GreenDrill seed hopper holds 200 l or alternatively 500 l and is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. In the metering system below the seed hopper, a seed shaft is fitted with normal or fine seed wheels depending on the seed type and desired application rate. The drive to the seed shaft is electric and that of the blower fan either electric or hydraulic.
