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.

“AMAZONE stated that the pulling power requirement was 90 HP (66 kW). We wanted to make sure and deliberately chose a light tractor with 106 HP (78 kW). With sufficient front ballasting we were delighted to be able to maintain an operational speed of more than twelve kilometres per hour even on some slightly sloping terrain.”

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.

  • Working depths of 5 cm to 14 cm
  • Thickness of the discs 5 mm/disc diameter 510 mm/smooth or serrated
  • Universal use for a more intensive incorporation 
  • More aggressive operation
  • Incorporation of organic fertilisers

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.

  1. 2-row angular contact ball bearing
  2. 2 x O-Ring
  3. 2 x cast rings with face seal
  4. Face seal built into conical seats
  5. Gear oil filled housing
  6. Proven 1,000,000 times over!

“It is amazing that the disc bearings on the complete machine do not require any lubrication.”

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.

The benefits:

  • Maintenance-free disc bearings with slide seals and life-long lubrication
  • Maintenance-free stone safety protection via rubber sprung buffer blocks
  • Individual disc suspension for optimised contour following and excellent through passage

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.

Perfect contour following – individually suspended discs

On all models, whether a Catros, Catros+, CatrosXL or Certos, each individual disc is suspended from the frame on elastic sprung rubber elements which is much better than machines with rigid disc suspension. Every concave disc can individually follow the ground contours, so that not only are the tracks filled up, but they are actually worked up, ensuring an evenly shallow soil tillage operation even with prevailing undulations on the soil surface. At the same time, by suspending each individual disc it allows the optimum passage of large amounts of organic matter in comparison to machines where the discs are mounted in pairs.

Safe and absolutely maintenance free

The elastic sprung rubber elements that suspend each disc, do not only serve to aid perfect adaptation to the ground contours, but also as an overload protection system for the individual discs. The large dimensioned rubber buffer blocks are maintenance-free and feature a long spring deflection that provides you with peace of mind, even in stony ground.

Practically orientated down to the last detail:

  • Contour following of the individual disc segments and with built-in overload and stone protection

Easy pulling for maximum acreage outputs

The basic equipment of the trailed machines Catros+-2TX with 7 m, 8 m and 9 m working width includes a centre bogey chassis.

Catros+-2TX-machines are characterised by their smooth travel because the weight of the running gear evenly rests on the disc section and the following rollers. In addition the weight of the running gear increases the even penetration of the machine into the soil. Thanks to the centre running gear, Catros+-2TX-machines are very manoeuvrable. An additional benefit is their operational flexibility as numerous possible following rollers are available.

The Catros+-2TX is equipped with serrated or smooth 510 mm diameter discs and thus allows working depths from 5 to 14 cm.

The hydraulic working depth adjustment of the Catros+-2TX is standard. The stepless setting of the ram results in a twisting of the disc mounting segment, changing the working depth. So, when changing the working depth, the readjustment of the support wheels is not necessary.

ContourFrame – For Catros+-2TX and Catros+ 12003-2TS

Optimum ground contour following

The Catros+-2TX and Catros+ 12003-2TS trailed compact disc harrows are divided into distinct sections, so that each of these sections ensures a consistent working depth and also, when working on hills or in hollows, a maintained depth is ensured. The Catros+-2TX-models each feature 2 outer sections and one centre section. The principle at the rear of the machine is that the depth guidance of the sections is carried out via the following roller whereas, at the front, the 2 outer sections on the Catros+-2TX are supported via support wheels and the centre section via the drawbar. On the Catros+ 12003-2TS the front support of all 4 sections is carried out via a support wheel on each part.

The short distance between support wheels and the roller ensures the superb contour following over hills and through hollows.

Smooth, even ride

During operation the wings are pre-pressurised via hydraulic accumulators. The hydraulic pre-pressurising allows individual ground contour following on any of the sections, both upwards and also downwards. In this way, the machine Frame optimally follows the ground contours over the entire width and provides an even work profile over the entire working width. Thanks to the individual contour following, a smooth ride is possible even under difficult operational conditions and thus an even quality of work is guaranteed.
