LEMKEN launches largest compact disc harrow

The implement's disc diameter has been enlarged from 465 to 510 mm to ensure a long disc service life commensurate with the high acreage performance. The larger discs also allow the working depth to be increased by 2 cm to up to 14 cm.


The new Heliodor Gigant is attached to the tractor's double-clip drawbar via a drawbar eye. The two 4-metre sections of the Heliodor 9, which combine to form 8-metre units, are attached to the two three-point linkages of the Gigant system carrier. The self-levelling lower links ensure that the two 8-metre sections independently adjust to surface contours. The self-levelling suspension provided for all of the four 4-metre sections achieves an optimum adjustment over the implement's full working width and results in consistently precise depth control including in uneven terrain.
The three-point linkages are connected to double-acting control units to ensure that weight can be transferred from the system carrier to the Heliodor sections, especially in hard soils. As a result, the Heliodor consistently delivers optimum quality of work, despite its large working width. Large-volume, 800 mm wide tyres reduce soil compaction to a minimum and, together with compact transport dimensions (3.50 metres width, 4 metres height) provide for good road handling of the Gigant Heliodor.
