COMPACT SPEED DISC

MODERN STUBBLE CULTIVATION  

  •          Straw incorporation 

Residues mixing on the top soil at a depth of 2" - 5" (5cm – 12cm) promotes straw decomposition and nutrient release. While conventional discs just size residues, UFO chops, pulverises and incorporates them at shallow depth.  

  •          Soil structure restoring and field conditioning 

UFO preserves soil structure without aggressive soil movement and no compaction in relation to conventional discs. It also promotes an increase of organic matter content on superficial sold layers, creating an ideal environment for soil bacteria. This tillage operation covers 60% of residues while 40% are left on the top, preventing erosion and improving water retention.  

  •          Weed control

To achieve maximum yield potential, it is necessary to get rid of weed competition. The UFO does a great job reducing weed competition.

Superb Chopping and Intense Mixing

 

Cross System

The perfect overlapping of front and rear gangs guarantees an exceptionally consistent tillage all the way across the working width. The high clearance 25" (63cm) and the narrow 40" (1m) gang spacing improves leveling, firming and consolidation, reducing power and fuel consumption at the same time. 

 

Disc diameter and concavity 

UFO notched discs have a wide 24" (61cm) diameter and are 1/3" thick (0.8cm). They are made in high tensile boron steel and have a soil contact which is four times wider than the smaller diameter discs. The discs’ concavity ensures better soil straw mixing even at very high density residues, compared to conventional vertical discs. 

 

Perfect cutting angle

The 22° cutting angle, the disc shape and spacing ensure an optimal cutting quality even in the toughest working conditions. 

 

Adjustable side retaining discs

Easily adjustable side discs (in depth and inclination) allow a perfect soil retention even with heavy crop residues, preparing an optimal seed bed and leaving a nice flat finish (no side ridges or furrows). 

Long Lasting Performance

 

 

External cap

External cap ensures total protection against dust and moisture.

 

Special bearings

The disc hub is fitted with angular contact ball bearings which increase load capacity by 20% in relation to other makes. 

Oil bath lubrication 

The sealed hub is in oil bath which enhances seals and bearings performance allowing maintenance free operations: no need to pump grease. 

 

Face contact seals 

Two metal sealing rings floating in position and two elastiomeric load rings provide positive sealing contact allowing lubricant retention and excluding any contamination.
