SWIFTERDISC XE

SWIFTERDISC XE trailed wide disc cultivator in a compact design with individual suspension of the discs with rubber segments, which make the machine ready for high quality, swift and inexpensive post-harvest stubble cultivation or seedbed preparation.

Thanks to the broad working width combined with high speeds, a massive daily output can be achieved.

The unique folding system allows the machine to be compacted in a forward motion resulting in smaller dimensions for transportation.

Each arm is fitted with a pair of discs (Twin-Disc system).

Concept Swifterdisc XE
Machine type: trailed disc cultivator of short conception
Operating components: 2 rows of serrated discs 520×5 mm (serrated discs with constant geometry or uniquely profiled A-discs), rear packer
(tube, steel ring, roadpacker, spring, V-ring, double U-ring, double packer, cutpack – for more see p. 60)
Securing: each arm with zero-maintenance rubber segments
Usage: swift, low cost stubble cultivation, seedbed preparation
Working operations: loosening of the surface layer, cutting and uniform mixing of crop residue, disruption of capillarity, settlement and compaction

 

Excellent treatment of shallow soils, evenly mixing crop residue over a wide area.

Final compaction and surface settlement of the rear packer (8 kinds of different diameters and types of materials).

Simple transportation due to the closing mechanism that allows the machine to fold in a forward motion to a more compact size.


Agronomic advantages of the machine

  1. The stubble cultivated immediately after the harvest takes advantage of the higher soil moisture content.
  2. Fast stubble tillage forms the foundation for a managed germination process of second growth and weeds following the harvest.
  3. Shallow tillage means greater humus content in the upper soil layer creating a more permeable soil (no soil crust).
  4. Fine crumbling due to the high speed of the machine and the resulting high circumferential speed of the packers, which delivers a flatter field without clods.
  1. Compaction of the cultivated surface ensures the even germination of volunteer plants and weeds.
  2. Agrotechnical deadlines are met as a result of the machine’s high performance and coverage.
  3. All-purpose tool for stubble tillage, soil preparation and intercropping with an Alfa Drill.

Cost savings benefits

  1. Quality tillage in one pass – one pass instead of many, quality cutting, mixing and incorporation of plant residue due in particular to the profiled aggressive A-discs.
  2. High operating speeds – means cutting costs and the number of hours spent out on the field. the high speeds are reached thanks to the high stability of the machine.
  1. Large area capacity – SwifterDisc is a light disc cultivator which can be connected to tractors of lower output, while the operating width and operating speed guarantee unusually high performance.
  2. Low maintenance costs – the components have a longer lifespan.
 
Agronom What stands out for me as a great benefit of the machine compared to its competitors is its stability and sturdiness, even at higher speeds; the machine doesn’t jump, working depth is always the same evenly over the whole profile and thanks to its high working speed it covers the plant residue perfectly, never mind its daily output.

Swifterdisc

You can use the swifterdisc for

  1. Shallow and fast stubble tillage to stimulate volunteer plant and weed germination and prevent capillary action.
  2. Maintain the moisture in the soil by compacting the surface with a rear packer immediately after the harvest.
  3. Seedbed preparation which includes levelling the furrow.
  1. The incorporation of plant material such as intercrops.
  2. Planting intercrops and grasses using an Alfa Drill.

Better quality work

A-DISCS
A new dimension to work quality

Specially shaped discs of 520 mm in diameter and a wall thickness of 5 mm with significantly high cutting and mixing abilities compared to other classic cutting discs. A-discs have a large number of blades around their circumference for the easy incorporation of large amounts of crop residue. These sharp blades cut up the crop residue efficiently. The profiled shape also allows a larger amount of soil to be lifted up than with standard serrated discs. Each profiled disk takes soil and takes it to the plant mulch where it is mixed. This concept delivers excellent results.

THE TWIN-DISC ENSURES A BETTER THROUGHPUT

The discs work in pairs on one arm. This solution means the distance between each arm is larger (50 cm). This results in more space for the material to pass through the machine. The machine can work smoothly even when the combine has left clumps of straw on the field. SwifterDisc cuts it up, spreads it out, mixes it with soil and covers it.

FOLDS FORWARD

The operating section can easily be folded forwards along the drawbar, giving the machine very small transport dimensions.

A COMPACT TRANSPORT SIZE

Its compact transport size assures you of simple transport along public roads – the machine length is 8.6 m, operating width of 12 m and transport width of 3 m.

Why should the cultivation be done immediately after the harvest

The foundations for successful crop growth are laid when harvesting the previous crop. By tilling the stubble immediately after harvest, you can use the moistness of the soil, which was protected from the sun by the stems.

Fast tilling ensures the reliable and even germination of volunteer plants and weeds. The basis for success here is a short interval between the harvest and sowing. Whether the farming is done by using a minimum-tillage system or a conventional method it is irrelevant.

Swifterdisc

A DISC DIAMETER OF 520×5 MM

The standard model of SwifterDisc cultivators is fitted with serrated discs with with a dimension of 520×5 mm. For an additional fee, you can have the machine fitted with aggressively profiled A-discs.

MAINTENANCE-FREE AXIAL BEARINGS

Axial ball bearings with oblique contact are encased with two static, one dynamic cassette and four rib seals in a solid metal body.

1 – dynamic cassette sealing with four ribs,
2 – metal body,
3 – static sealing,
4 – four-point bearing,
5 – double sealing

SECURING OF DISCS

Rubber segments prevent bumps created during soil tillage. The machine functions quickly without maintenance regardless of tough conditions. High quality, long-life rubber is used!

SIDE SHIELDS

Swifterdisc machines can be equipped with side shields (discs) which prevent the formation of ridges around the edges of the machine. individual passes cannot be seen.

Front hydraulical paddle levelling barbar – crushbar

The SwifterDisc XO_F and XE models can be fitted with a front hydraulic paddle levelling bar – Crushbar (excellent for seedbed preparation). It levels out the land including the rough furrow in front of the discs.

HYDRAULICALLY CONTROLLED WORKING DEPTH

The working depth can easily be set using the roller control, or the front supporting wheels. It can be set mechanically or hydraulically.

Stable tillage, flat land

For tillage, a level surface must be maintained both horizontally to the direction of work and along the direction of work. To achieve flat land without mounds, the machine must operate smoothly and in a stable manner.

Any unwanted movement of the machine through, e.g. rocking, creates an uneven field. Till with the stable SwifterDisc with its cleverly positioned centre of gravity.
