Maximum effectiveness – seedbed preparation and sowing in one pass

Trailed seed drill combination with 2-row disc element 
The trailed seed drill combination with 2-row disc element shows its advantages. The disc element loosens, crumbles and levels the seedbed depending on the type of discs chosen immediately ahead of the seed placement. The working depth of the disc element can be adjusted on the move. Via a series of holes, the end discs can be adjusted individually to ensure a level finish between bouts.

Solo drilling at high work rates
The Cirrus is also available without a disc element to provide a high output solo drill. With all the technical benefits of the basic seed drill, the Cirrus without disc segment is a cost-effective alternative for solo sowing but still maintains the pre-drilling reconsolidation. In this specification as well, the optional Crushboard can be added.

The selection of the correct disc – coarse-serrated, fine-serrated or with cutting discs

Several options can be selected for the disc element: a cutting disc, a coarse-serrated disc and a fine-serrated disc.

1. Fine-serrated disc (460 mm)
On the other hand, the fine-serrated disc shows its strength more in shallow seedbed preparation. It provides more fine soil for an optimum seed embedment.

2. Coarse-serrated disc (460 mm)
The coarse-serrated disc is ideally suited for deeper seedbed preparation. Due to its profile, an especially aggressive incorporation, including the mulching of harvest residues, is achieved. A steep angle of attack for the discs ensures a particularly intense mixing.

3. Minimum TillDisc (460 mm)
The Minimum TillDisc is particularly suitable for strip-wise, water-conserving soil tillage. This method moves as little soil as possible.

Cirrus slide seal – proven 1,000,000 times over!

Perfect bearing sealing

The combination of felt ring and extremely high quality face seals perfectly protect the 2-row angular contact ball bearing races. So, with one oil fill as lifelong lubrication, grease nipples are avoided. Thus, the maintenance time of the compact disc harrow element is substantially reduced. Face seals have been used in the construction industry for decades for sealing rollers and the running gear of track-laying vehicles and they are proven to work reliably under the hardest of operational conditions.

2. 2-row angular roller bearing
3. 2 x O-ring
4. 2 x cast rings with face seal
5. SAE 90 gear oil filled (40 cm³)

Rubber suspension elements – reliable and maintenance-free

The disc system combines two discs mounted on one arm which is suspended via sprung rubber blocks and which optimally follows the ground contours. In addition, the rubber sprung buffers act as an overload safety device on stony soils. In this way, a safe, maintenance-free operation of the compact disc harrow system is ensured – and at a constant, even working depth.

Minimum TillDisc cutting disc

The Minimum TillDisc is particularly ideal for water-conserving and weed-reducing soil tillage. The amount of soil moved is minimised by using the discs in strips. It only loosens and cuts the area where the following sowing coulter runs to prevent any renewed germination of weeds. A further application is provided by adopting the disc setup in areas with higher resistance. This effect can also be used to create green bridges in the crop.

Water-conserving strip till

The use of the Minimum TillDisc in dry locations allows for water-conserving strip till, as only the strip immediately in front of the sowing coulters is worked. Under moist, sticky soil conditions, the Minimum TillDisc cutting disc element pulls up fewer clods to the surface than a normal disc element. Using the Minimum TillDisc also makes the Cirrus easier to pull, which has a positive effect on fuel consumption.


Advantages of the Minimum TillDisc:

  • Water-conserving strip till
  • Least possible soil movement
  • Less clod formation
  • Discs are very easy to pull

Crushboard

From choice, the Cirrus can be equipped with a Crushboard in front or behind the disc segment. If it is undulations that require levelling or hard clods that have to be broken, the Crushboard is in the right position in front of the discs. Under very light conditions the Crushboard, positioned behind the discs, can, in addition, help settle the earth flow. The reconsolidation will be even more uniform. For the Cirrus with Crushboard, the front tyre packer can also be specified.

Tractor wheel mark eradicators

When operating on compaction sensitive soils, and at a reduced working depth, the optional tractor wheel mark eradicators make sense. These loosen the compacted tracks behind the tractor tyres. The position of the wheel mark eradicators can be set horizontally and vertically. The special kinematics of the eradicator provides a constant spring force across the entire area of deflection. The wedge shares safely loosen yet, however, do not bring stones to the surface.

Packers – For even better reconsolidation

T-Pack U
The front T-Pack U intermediate axle packer rolls the area in the centre of the cultivation disc segment. The soil in front of the machine is thereby additionally reconsolidated. This is of particular benefit on light soils. The passively-steered T-Pack U can be utilised as an intermediate axle packer in the rear of the tractor or also, in solo operation, as a front packer.

T-Pack S
With the T-Pack S side packer, when using the Cirrus 4003-2/2C and 6003-2/2C under light to medium conditions or following the plough, the soil can be pre-rolled ahead of the disc segment, providing additional reconsolidation.

T-Pack IN
The front packer concept in the Cirrus 4003-2/2C and 6003-2/2C can be supplemented by the T-Pack IN. This is mounted in the centre of the machine underneath the drawbar and in this way presses the area between the tractor wheels.
