STUBBLE CULTIVATOR (KLD) — SHILLING

The application of stubble cultivators considerably increased in agricultural industry due to the promotion of subsurface tillage and resource-saving technologies. Stubble cultivators are used in full force and effect in mulch cropping system, where the most favorable conditions for germination and further development of crops are created. They have the best performance during soil cultivation before and after grain and legume crops. The SHILLING disc-share stubble cultivators also have a widespread application in traditional tillage systems for fallow maintenance and seedbed preparation.

Stubble cultivators have vivid advantages over the disc implements with a rigid tine: better tillage quality on average- and light-textured soils with small crushed plant residues as well as no soil packing by working elements. 
 
Cultivation with SHILLING is carried out in two stages.
During the first stage the seeds of drops, weeds and organic mass are covered by the topsoil at shallow depth by means of special-shaped vaned shares. This provokes their fast germination and causes water capillary destruction, thereby soil keeps moisture, absorbs and keeps precipitations.
 
The second stage is carried out approximately within two weeks. Soil is cultivated at the depth of 10-15 cm, sprouts are cut off over the whole surface and removed with roots. At the same time KLD uniformly distributes organic mass over the whole cultivation depth and mixes it with the soil.
 
 
The SHILLING multipurpose cultivator also can be applied for the efficient sowing of intercrops. Due to design features it shows very good results by optimal mixing of herbage with the soil for its quick decomposition (working elements ensure blockage-free operation). 
 
The SHILLING design provides easy adjustment of cultivation depth. 
Parallel roller and concave discs are manufactured as a combined unit. Therefore, there is no need to make supplementary disc setting while adjusting cultivation depth. Optimal position of the centre of gravity is achieved by simple rearrangement of axis for depth limiter and by forward displacement of concave discs assembly with ribbed roller for unit transportation purposes.
 

Features

Additional design advantages of the SHILLING cultivator: 
  • Wide vaned coulters are adjusted downward under special angle, thereby it is possible to perform undercutting of soil seam over the whole surface and optimal mixing even at small depths.
  • The working width of the edge of long side faces of coulters remains intact within the whole service life.
  • The possibility to remount a safety bolt allows to adjust the slope angle of the legs and provides perfect penetration of SHILLING even into dry and hard soil.
  • The SHILLING design is adapted towards the majority of working elements, which allows to select the most convenient way of their purchase for the customer.
  • Special design of doubled roller provides intensive soil crumbling and its optimal reverse packing, thereby the best germination of seeds fall and weeds is provided.
  • Pin-edge fixing of the doubled roller provides its tilting while crossing over various obstacles without raising of the whole unit, thereby the specified cultivated depth remains unchanged.
