Seedbed cultivators are designed for processing soil prior to seeding. They are mostly used in cultivating soil after tillage, but they can also be used in seedbed preparation in zero tillage systems. We have the most experience among all the manufacturers of agricultural technology in the category of seedbed cultivators. As a result, our comprehensive SWIFTER model line provides working widths from 10 to 60 feet.
A compactor is used for levelling and for precise seedbed preparation before seeding. The perfect soil profile levelling of the cultivated field after previous operations is an essential and basic part of seedbed preparation.
An ideal soil particle structure, warming up and aerating the soil profile: those are pre-requisites of quick and uniform emergence of all seeded crops. A quality-prepared seedbed makes it possible to establish crops at the proper depth, and accelerates the work of the seeding combination.
The various working sections of the SWIFTER cultivators can be easily replaced, which makes the compactor adjustable to seedbed preparation for a specific crop, or to the seasonal and soil type conditions (spring/autumn cultivation, wet/rocky soil).
Every pass across the field is important in seedbed preparation to prevent unnecessary drying out of soil. By combining up to eight operations, the SWIFTER seedbed cultivator prepares a quality seedbed in one pass.
The SWIFTER SN model line offers mounted compactors with a working width of 10-16.5 feet, either rigid or folding. These are the most accessible compactors on the market, using an efficient combination of up to seven working parts.
