Överum introduces next generation plough

0

The new Överum CX2 is a fully mounted reversible medium class plough with three, four or five furrows and for tractors up to 160 hp. It features a lighter and stronger modular frame tube design replacing the previous CX-design.

The CX2 has a modern frame design in high-strength steel that is 40% stronger than standard frame tubes. This reduces the weight of the frame and increases its strength and durability. The result is an open frame design with good clearance for crop residues.

The significant reductions of welded joints on the frame, and the strong bolted assemblies with hardened bolts result in a simple and strong design with few moving parts and logical adjustments.

The transfer of power from the headstock to the frame of the CX2-plough, and the adjustment of the front furrow width, are performed with new high-class components. They are cast in high-class steel, which is very durable.   During the design-phase, this material allows Överum to customize the dimensions very accurately to the actual loads of the various locations in the design. Thus, the strength/weight-ratio can be optimized.

Överum CX2 can tackle wider furrows, adjustable in five steps from 14” to 22” (35-55 cm), versus three steps, 14” to 18”, in the previous version. The adjustment takes place via a series of holes for each ploughbody. The few moving parts cause a low maintenance level.

It can be equipped with a new hydraulic alignment cylinder that centres the plough before turns. This feature is standard for the five furrow, and recommended for the four furrow versions, if working with a furrow width of 18” or more.

The stone release principles are, like the previous, a shear bolt version, or a version with hydraulic stone release. The hydraulic version is the flexible choice for easy adjustment of the release pressure for various soil types and amount of stones.

The full range of Överum ploughbodies can be chosen for the CX2. Among other, the new XLD plough body or XSD slatted body can be selected, for wide furrows and deep ploughing, or the XL plough body with the lowest draft requirement on the market.

CX2-models with add-on flange can be extended later with an extra furrow.
