HE-VA, imported and distributed throughout the UK by Opico, will introduce a new version of its Combi-Disc cultivator at the Royal Highland Show.
Designed specifically for mid-sized tractors, the new model has a 2.45m working width and four deep-loosening legs, rather than the five on the 2.75m model. This enables the new machine to be pulled with just 155hp, depending on the conditions.
The two rows of legs are followed by two rows of serrated sabre discs to provide surface chopping and mixing, with a V-profile roller at the rear to provide a corrugated, weather-proof finish. Both the discs and the legs can be completely lifted out of work.
New options include Stealth legs for true low-disturbance subsoiling and surface tilth creation and the addition of a cage roller which can bring the total weight of the 2.45m model down from 3,300kg to 3,000kg.
“With more and more growers looking towards less intensive cultivation practices yet recognising the requirement for remedial sub-surface work when the need arises, demand for the Combi-Disc is on the up,” explained HE-VA product manager Glenn Bootman.
“But until now power requirement has been the limiting factor for those operating smaller tractors. With this smaller four-leg version, anyone running a mid-sized machine can pull it making full use of the tines, discs and press.”
