The fine cultivator HORSCH Cruiser 5/6 XL with new spring tine
4 October 2017
The new trailed fine cultivator HORSCH Cruiser 5 and 6 XL fills the gap between the 3-point linkage mounted models and the 10- and 12-metre-wide trailed versions.
With its 6 bars the Cruiser mixes and distributes excellently. Due to the frame height of 700 mm even large quantities of organic material are no problem. The cultivator can be equipped with four different cultivation point versions. It thus is ideal for a perfect stubble cultivation with optimum straw distribution after combining, seedbed preparation, as a fine cultivator for mechanical weed control and for loosening and venting the soils in spring.
The characteristic of the HORSCH spring tine is a new technology for more clearance – the new spring tine runs above the frame and thus the clearance is 700 instead of 600 mm. Its geometry allows for an easy upward rebounding without a large trip release height. This eases the stress on the material and increases the service life considerably. With a release force of 150 kg it constantly maintains the working depth of up to 15 cm even in the difficult conditions.
The working depth is adjusted via the support wheels at the front and the packer. The chassis of the Cruiser 5/6 XL is located behind the tine section, in front of the levelling tools. The chassis with its large wheels. To be able to make optimum use of the tractive output, the Cruiser XL is equipped with a fully integrated tractive power amplifier that transfers weight to the rear axle of the tractor with 1 200 kg while working. It is activated by switching the control device for lifting and lowering to a depressurised condition, without any additional control devices or cylinders.
