Sulky Burel will demonstrate its 4m Cultiline folding power harrows at Tillage Live 2018 in tandem with its Xeos TF 4m drill with front-mounted tank.

While this drill can be combined with different rear-mounted cultivators and drilling toolbars to suit conditions, at Tillage Live it will be demonstrated in combination with the Cultiline HRW4000.28 folding power harrow.

The Xeos TF can be fitted with Suffolk coulter, Twin Disc or Cultidisc drilling toolbars and it has Sulky’s universal seed metering unit, adjustable from seed rates from 1 to 450kg/ha (wheat). Maximum ballast load on the front tank is 1500kg plus the load in the hopper, making it suitable for use on large, high horsepower tractors, and ensuring a balanced load no matter what drilling toolbar is used.

The manufacturer will be demonstrating its range of foldable cultivation equipment and high capacity drills and Robert Thurkettle, managing director of Sulky Burel UK, said: “Our customers know us for our range of quality seed drills and fertiliser spreaders but the tillage equipment used in combination with our drills is sometimes overlooked. Creating a good seedbed in challenging conditions, particularly late in the season, is important for fast and even autumn crop emergence.

“This year’s wet spring also saw many farmers struggle to get crops drilled. Sulky’s Cultiline range of power harrows can be very useful in these poor soil conditions – allowing good forward speeds and even tilth production, with reduced power requirements.” This power harrow range use four rotors per metre and each rotor has tapered roller bearings, pre-set at the factory. This requires no further adjustment and the high tensile steel gear trough is lubricated for life in the factory with a double seal.

The Cultiline HRW4000.28 folding power harrow, which will be demonstrated at Tillage Live, offers wide working widths with ease of transport at 2.95m when folded. An intermediate chassis carries the hydraulic folding parts, which are locked for transport. A three-year warranty on the gearbox and gear-trays is standard across the range.
