Gigant System Carrier

A single carrier for any use

The two system carriers, Gigant 10 and Gigant 12, offer the unique possibility to use different LEMKEN implements with a single carriage efficiently in the field. Both system carriers have two hydraulic three-point linkages for mounting a Heliodor or Rubin compact disc harrow, a Smaragd disc cultivator or a System-Kompaktor seedbed combination, depending on the work to be done. This multiple use saves double and triple investment costs for the carriage, brake system and hydraulic implement folding device. The individual working sections can additionally be used without the system carrier with smaller standard tractors.

  • The two three-point linkages and individual working sections result in unsurpassed ground adaptation and thus consistent working depth and lower fuel consumption.
  • As the wheels of the Gigant system carrier run in front of the working sections, the cultivated area remains free of wheel tracks.
  • The Gigant 10 allows any combination of implements to be easily and safely transported on public roads within a width of three metres.
  • The Gigant 12 can be equipped with a servo wheel for easy, safe use at the headlands.

The Heliodor compact disc harrow from LEMKEN uses two rows of discs individually mounted to leaf springs. This system provides a uniform cultivation depth, whilst allowing individual discs to ride over stones when necessary. During stubble cultivation the discs ensure soil and vegetation are evenly and intensively mixed.

The Heliodor can be used for seedbed preparation in conventional and minimumtillage procedures. Hydraulically adjustable spring-loaded levelling tines (option) reliably level the soil after the plough.

A variety of rollers are available from the LEMKEN roller product range for depth control and reconsolidation. This allows the Heliodor to be ideally tailored to meet the various conditions prevailing in modern agriculture.

The Heliodor is available in working widths of three to twelve metres, meaning there is a machine to suit every farming operation.

The new Heliodor 9 features discs with 510 mm diameter, that is 45 mm larger than its predecessor. This results in a considerably longer service life, and the implement's working depth can additionally be increased by 2 cm to 14 cm. As the unique disc position of the LEMKEN compact disc harrows has proven so successful over many years, both cutting angle and undercut have been retained without change. The high-quality, maintenance-free axial angular ball bearings are also still the same as in the Heliodor 8.

  • Hydraulically folding with 8, 10, 12 and 16 metres working widths. Transport width of less than three metres and a transport height of less than four metres.

Space between the two rows of discs is 107 cm. This, together with the open frame of the Rubin, ensures blockagefree operation even when there are large amounts of organic material.

Discs are spaced at 250mm intervals, across the width of the machine, to allow free flow of material between them. The rear run row offset to the front row giving an overall spacing of 125mm.

Each row of the scalloped discs has height and angle adjustable rebound harrows, controlling the soil flow from the discs and, when working diagonally across the rows, helping to complete a thorough straw distribution.

Additional outer levelling discs enable exact alignment with previous bouts without forming ridges. Each disc is attached to the frame by an offset leg to enable a precise setting.

Due to the combination of the position of the disc and its angle, ease of penetration is maximised even in hard ground conditions.

Following-rollers from the wide range of LEMKEN rollers offer precise depth control. 

System-Kompaktor

The constant strive to control input costs, coupled with the need to optimise timing of crop establishment, demands machines which combine high work quality with high output.

For this reason, many farmers choose semi-mounted machines taking advantage of their large daily output and ability to follow the ground contours to give a uniform working depth. Compared to PTO driven machines, passive seedbed combinations can often deliver a higher output with reduced operational costs. They are becoming particularly common when preparing a seedbed for maize, oilseed rape and row crops. With its System-Kompaktor seedbed combinations, LEMKEN offers an implement with versatile equipment options that fulfil all arable farming requirements associated with perfect seedbed preparation.

An ideal seed bed forms the basis of optimum crop development. The cultivated soil should be well levelled, and uniformly tilled across the entire implement width and working depth.

Vitally important, is the seed horizon on which the seed is sown. It has to be excellently reconsolidated to ensure an ideal water supply. A tilled structure with fine soil in the seed area, and more cloddy soil on the surface, guarantee perfect field emergence. The System-Kompaktor generates the best conditions to achieve this.
