Are you working your soils correctly?

Kverneland cultivator tines have been designed to suit various soil types, working depths, soil movement and residue management, in both primary and secondary cultivations.

According to David Holmes, Kverneland’s commercial product manager for arable systems, the ability to work as deep as necessary, and also vary the depth of operation, is vital to managing residue while repairing and restructuring soil profile during cultivations.

“It’s why we offer Triflex and Reflex tines with a choice of 10 shares, allowing maximum flexibility with soil disturbance at depths from 3-20cm,” says David.

Triflex has five share options from a 25cm wing for shallow operation, to an aggressive 6.5cm wing for deeper loosening. The Reflex tine includes Knock-on points from 24cm wide, narrowing to a 5cm share, again for deeper operation.

Where the Reflex 200 tine suits light to medium soils with its 200kg penetration force and high frequency vibration to aid shattering, the more rigid Triflex 400 and 700 models can withstand greater force in heavier soils – typically, 400kg and 700kg respectively.

Triflex tines also feature a dual working angle, for controlled soil movement. This combines deep loosening and shallow mixing in one operation.

In addition, Kverneland’s Turbo cultivator can now be equipped with the heavier duty Triflex 400, offering greater strength and rigidity than the Reflex 200 tine. In this application, the Reflex tine is held in place by the proven Kverneland auto-reset leaf-spring system
