Rotary harrows or rotary cultivators – The all-rounders for seedbed preparation

Always the right choice: Rotary harrows and rotary cultivators are still the best all-rounder when it comes to seedbed preparation. No other soil tillage implement can be used so flexibly on ploughed or unploughed ground. Used in combination with a rear mounted or harrow-mounted mounted seed drill, they are, for many farms, the ideal system solution.

KX rotary cultivator – the all-rounder

Flexible and effective

With the KX rotary cultivator, in a 3 m working width and for tractors in the 190 HP class, a very flexible, usable PTO-driven soil tillage implement now exists that can be used as a rotary cultivator or as a rotary harrow.

Many farmers want to use a flexible machine for differing soil and operating conditions. That means, for example, a rotary cultivator with its “on-grip” tines for relatively heavy soils when mulch sowing and a rotary harrow with tines set to trailing mode on lighter, stony soils, so that the stones are pressed back down into the soil.

Previously, the tines have often simply been turned from “trailing” to “on-grip”. The finished result can then often be unsatisfactory, because only tines specially designed for each specific purpose can produce the best work.

The benefits of the rotary cultivator:

  • Short set up times by the proven tine quick change system
  • Very flexible in operation – can be, from choice, operated with trailing tines or with “on-grip” tines
  • More rigidity – reinforced trough profile, thicker shaft diameter and stronger tines
  • Loosening of hard and compacted soils without any problem
  • Intensive incorporation of straw and other organic matter

Staggered tine layout guarantees smooth running

The tines on AMAZONE rotary harrows and rotary cultivators are set at a special angle in relation to each other. This guarantees an even soil crumbling and a smoother machine running. Incidents of vibration and peak loading are thereby prevented. The machines suffer less stress, and the power and fuel requirement is reduced.

Tine quick change system

The proven tine quick change system enables the KX to be converted without tools and in next to no time into a specialist machine which is suited to the particular ground conditions.

Either rotary harrow or rotary cultivator tines are pushed into the sockets of the tine carriers. These are secured with bolts and a clip pin. There is no easier and faster way. There are no tine fixing bolts that require retightening.

With the rotary cultivator tines, the KX can be switched to the “on-grip” tine position, when heavy soil conditions are encountered. The “on-grip” position has proved itself the most ideal for mulch sowing, as an intensive mix of soil and organic residues is ensured.

2. Tines in “trailing” mode

Long-Life-Drive - For all rotary harrows and rotary cultivators

Quality within the system: Long-Life-Drive is the optimised drive system for all AMAZONE rotary harrows and rotary cultivators that ensures an extended operating life, maximum smooth running and a high resale value. Gear wheels and bearings run in a single oil bath and so are maintenance-free – there are no grease nipples.

1. Robust gearbox
2. Highly-hardened spur gears with large teeth contact area
3. Exact spacing of all bearing seats for a maximum smooth running
4. Heavy-duty taper roller bearings with wide spacing between mounting points
5. Large clearance between tool carrier and smooth trough base for blockage-free mulch sowing and optimum though passage
6. Double sealing system with cassette sealing ring against oil loss and labyrinth seal against ingress of plant fibres and dirt
7. Tine carriers and shaft forged from one piece and with a large shaft diameter, KE rotary harrow ∅ = 45 mm/KG and KX rotary cultivator ∅ = 60 mm
8. Quick + Safe System with a tool-less tine change solution and integrated stone safety protection

More clearance on the KE, KX and KG

The large frame depth, the completely smooth trough bottom without bearing housings and the long tines ensure the maximum clearance between the trough and the tine carriers. Even extremely large clods of soil or volumes of straw can therefore pass through without hindrance. The tines have a long service life, i.e. low wearing metal costs. An excellent seedbed structure is achieved that promotes the optimum field emergence of the young plants.

Ruggedness is the trump card!

Strong rotor carrier

The tine carrier and shaft are forged in one piece from high grade steel. The shaft diameter is 60 mm: strong as a bear.

The tine carrier shaft is supported by bearings with the optimum bearing spacing. Trough sealing is done with a special cassette seal with an optimum sealing effect and maximum service life. In addition, labyrinth seals prevent the ingress of plant fibres.

  • The tine carrier and shaft are forged from one piece. The shaft diameter is 60 mm: strong as a bear.

Robust trough

The high-standing 8 mm thick gear case made in a trough-type profile with double skin base and welded-in bearing sleeves is extremely torsion resistant, which enables it to easily withstand the high forces that occur when transporting heavy packer rollers and pack-top mounted seed drills without cumbersome external bracings. Gear wheels and bearings run in a single oil bath and so are maintenance-free – there are no grease nipples.
