Lemken has extended its mounted reversible plough range by two Juwel 8 M series. The M and MV plough models feature a hydraulic reversing mechanism with mechanical pitch adjustment. The reversing mechanism, which comprises a short, robust pivot axle with a diameter of 120 mm, ensures precise, reliable plough rotation.
The pitch of the Juwel 8 M is adjusted via a cap nut and stop; this adjustment can be made separately for each side. The cap nuts protect threads against dirt to ensure that pitch adjustments can be performed smoothly.
The standard equipment of the Juwel 8 M and MV includes the DuraMaxx plough bodies, which are available as full or slatted bodies in steel, plastic or hybrid versions to meet a wide range of requirements. The slats and mouldboards are made of special wear-resistant tool steel without drill or punch holes. As DuraMaxx bodies are not screwed, but clipped to the base body, they are quick and easy to replace and can be fully utilised as wearing material. Juwel 8 M ploughs to be used in less demanding soils or for lower acreage performances can be equipped with Dural bodies.
Both the skimmers, which can be adjusted without tools, and the mechanical Uni wheels with hydraulic suspension – a new feature of the Juwel 8 – are also available in the Juwel 8 M. The wheels ensure reliable depth control and allow fast switching between the transport and working positions, as they do not require a control chain or hydraulic line to the tractor.
The mechanical mechanism allows four working widths to be set, while the hydraulic version provides variable adjustment. With 3 to 7 furrows and a range of underframe and interbody clearances, there is an extensive range of models for medium- and high-performance tractors.
