LAMMA 2017 will be the launch pad for Väderstad’s new generation TopDown cultivator in working widths of between 3m and 9m. Extensive updates include a new double SteelRunner packer option, a reinforced frame, new hydraulics and stronger tine arms.
The new TopDown has 12.5cm disc spacing, 27cm tine spacing, an adjustable hydraulic stone release up to 700kg and can cultivate down to 30cm depth. With DeepLoosening points the depth increases to 40cm. TopDown remains a one pass shallow or deep cultivation tool with effective levelling and reconsolidation.
The front of the machine has an aggressive TrueCut 470 disc module for effective cutting and mixing soils. Updated hydraulics with enlarged accumulators ensure more intensive loosening, distributing and mixing, irrespective of the conditions on the field.
The levelling board has an updated design too including better working angles, while the new adjustable packer double SteelRunner creates a very effective full depth reconsolidation and clod breaking function. Its open design results in minimized bulldozing and a low draught requirement.
