From 2017 the Cultus tine cultivator from Vaderstad can be delivered in three versions, customised for a range of field conditions.
Depending on the need for reconsolidation and weight distribution, the Cultus can now be delivered as a mounted machine without the hydraulic packer. Instead of the packer, Cultus is equipped with hydraulic levellers and carrier wheels.
“We have noticed an increased demand for having the opportunity to prepare the field for the spring drilling, by cultivating it later in the autumn. By offering Cultus without its packer, the farmer gets a light machine well suited for moist conditions, says Johan Alsäter, product manager Soil at Väderstad.
The hydraulic levellers, which the driver is able to control from the cab, creates an even result and an open soil structure. Meanwhile, the robust carrier wheels ensure an exact working depth,” he added.
Vaderstad claim the Cultus effectively mixes crop residues, irrespective of field conditions and the new version of the machine, will complement the other versions in the product family.
From 2017 the Cultus can be delivered in the following three versions:
Mounted with the re-packer and mechanical levellers
Trailed with RubberRunner and mechanical levellers
Mounted with carrier wheels and hydraulic levellers
