The new universal light cultivator Väderstad Ferox 500-900 is able to create a seedbed in a wide range of farming conditions. Ferox has a working depth of 10-12cm, and is available with a working width of 5, 6, 7 or 9 metres.
The Ferox tine is rigidly constructed to keep the working depth whilst also allowing intense vibrations to thereby create good crumbling of the soil.
- Because of the intense tine and relatively wide tine spacing, Väderstad Ferox is able to transform a stubble into a seedbed, says Johan Alsäter, Product manager Tillage, at Väderstad.
Väderstad Ferox is a universal tool, providing benefits in different tasks on the farm.
- With its high throughflow and intensive tines, Ferox is able to handle crop residues and weeds before seeding. When the conditions allow for it, Ferox is also able to dry up the soil before seeding.
As standard Ferox is equipped with a levelling CrossBoard before the tines.
- The CrossBoard provides an aggressive cultivation, ensuring that clods are crushed and the soil is levelled. The working intensity is easily controlled hydraulically from the cab.
Ferox, which is equipped with 50mm points, works down to 10-12cm. To match different farming requirements, Ferox can be fitted with 5 or 6 axles, as well as a rear CrossBoard and crumble packer as option. The model with 5 axles have a tine spacing of 12cm, while the 6 axle models have a tine spacing of 11cm. Depending on model, Ferox has a transport width from 3.15 to 4.05m.
Väderstad Ferox will go into production during the end of this year.
