Outstandingly low fuel consumption
Working speeds from 12 km/h to 18 km/h are not a problem with the Catros compact disc harrows. This enables you to achieve incredibly high work rates and keeps the working time down to a minimum. However, the fuel, wear and tear and repair costs are also key factors for profitable farming. AMAZONE has been carrying out trials in collaboration with the DLG test centre in Groß-Umstadt for several years, in order to determine reliable figures for these costs.
The Catros compact disc harrows proved be extremely fuel-efficient in all trials. For example, a fuel requirement of only around 4 l/ha was determined in stubble cultivation with an average working depth of 6 cm depending on the soil type and ground topography. The consumption values for seedbed preparation were similar.
“AMAZONE specifies the pulling power requirement as 90 hp (66 kW). We wanted to be sure and deliberately opted for a light tractor with 106 hp (78 kW). With sufficient front ballast, we were delighted that we were able to maintain a working speed of more than twelve kilometres per hour, even with a slight slope.”
