The new Catros+ 03 compact disc harrows with SmartFrame

AMAZONE LTD Stand: 824

The complete 03 product range now comes in working widths from 2.5 m to 12 m and is characterised by the low pulling power requirement combined with high forward speeds which provides the scope for high work rates yet low fuel consumption. 

 

Smart Frame System – comfortable, quick and precise

The intelligent Smart Frame System frame concept is extremely user-friendly. This new form of working depth adjustment means that the machine needs to be aligned parallel to the field surface just once. The working depth is then adjusted by simple rotation of the disc carrier arms. In this respect, the rows of discs are rotated away from the frame for a deeper setting or the discs are rotated towards the frame for shallower work. As a result, the machine frame always remains parallel to the soil, meaning that the machine works at a uniform depth at all times.

This is extremely comfortable, especially when using the mounted machines, because the top link does not have to be corrected when adjusting the working depth. The system has a particular advantage in the case of the trailed models as the working depth adjustment has no impact when used in combination with any front tools. This is in comparison to other machine concepts, where the working depth is changed by tilting the entire machine and thus the front tools have to be re-adjusted as a consequence. Here, the Smart Frame System makes the task much easier and more efficient. The same applies also, for instance, when using following double rollers and harrows. As a result of the constant position of the frame, the rollers do not tilt when the working depth is changed, and the pressure is always the same on both rollers. Furthermore, the adjustment of the optional rear harrow also remains unchanged.

The deeper the work, the greater the distance between the frame and disc arm and the following roller. This provides optimum through-passage in the machine as a result of the higher clearance.

Thanks to the Smart Frame System, the working depth can be comfortably adjusted hydraulically from the cab when needed without compromising the result and without laborious readjustment.

 

 

Front tools for any application

The Catros+ 03-2TS trailed compact disc harrow with bogey chassis is divided into 3 sections: The optional front tools, the disc element and the following roller. A knife roller or Crushboard are offered as front tools. The extremely robust knife roller with maintenance-free bearings is ideal for shredding organic matter such as rape, sunflowers, maize stubbles or catch crops. The individual roller segments provide perfect contour following. The Crushboard can be selected as an alternative if the focus is on seedbed preparation.

 

The right disc for every requirement

With a disc diameter of 510 mm, the Catros+ permits working depths from 5 cm to 14 cm and is ideal for a wide range of applications. From full-surface chitting of stubbles and seedbed preparation to medium-deep soil tillage and incorporation of organic matter and liquid manures. Depending on the main application, there is a choice between a smooth, fine-serrated or coarse-serrated disc. Furthermore, the X-Cutter disc, with a diameter of 480 mm, is available for the new Catros+ 03 for very shallow work from 2 cm to 8 cm. The wave profile guarantees full-surface movement and high mixing intensity at the same time.

 

Simultaneous incorporation of liquid manures with the pro-Pack

The simultaneous incorporation of liquid manures during application reduces nutrient loss and therefore protects the environment. For this purpose, AMAZONE offers the pro-Pack for the Catros+ mounted compact disc harrows in working widths of 5 m, 6 m and 7 m. A double harrow can also be used on machines with a working widths of 6 and 7 m. This allows faster drying and warming of the soil. The machine weight is, at the same time, reduced.

 

Following rollers for many applications

Depending on the field conditions and needs, various following rollers and harrows can be selected from the wide AMAZONE range so as to achieve perfect reconsolidation.

Combination with the GreenDrill seeder box for the simultaneous sowing of fine seeds and catch crops is available as an option. Application is provided via baffle plates in front of the following roller.
