Vaderstad disc harrow delivers high-speed tillage

Väderstad’s Bernt Martensson

Farmers looking for high-speed, aggressive tillage may want to take a look at the Vaderstad Carrier XL disc harrow.

In this report from Agritechnica, RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin and Vaderstad’s Bernt Martensson check out the Carrier XL 725 on the trade show floor at the agriculture innovation showcase held in Hanover, Germany.

“We would normally go between 10 to 15 kilometres per hour but with this we would like to go even faster — from 12 to 20 kilometres per hour. So we go really fast,” says Martensson.

Vaderstad’s Carrier line of disc cultivators is typically used for high-speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. Martensson notes that the wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables it to handle a wide range of field challenges – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation.

Martensson says North American farmers are familiar with Carrier XL but now have access to a larger machine to cover more ground with the addition of a seven metre unit. See the full report below.
