Key properties

A disc cultivator for smaller farmers with the properties of larger professional models, suitable for basic soil cultivation and seedbed preparation.

VERSATILITY

Its true name. See for yourself.

Stubble breaking is one of the most important field operations. According to the proper agricultural procedures, it should be done as soon after harvest as possible. For this operation, SWIFTERDISC XN can be equipped with serrated or aggressive discs with a diameter of 20,5 × 0,2 inches, providing excellent cutting, mixing with soil and incorporation of crop residue. The rear packers compact soil and close the cultivated soil profile to ensure even emergence of weeds and unwanted cereal seeds.

The optimal diameter in combination with the high working speed provide a high circumferential speed of the discs, which leads to excellent crumbling and mixing effect of the disc section.

BALLAST WEIGHT

Especially suitable for work in extremely dry conditions.

The mounted version of the SWIFTERDISC XN cultivator can be equipped with ballast weight from 100 to 200 kg. The ballast weight helps discs penetrate soil and improves their work, especially when working in dry conditions.

 

OUTSTANDING FRAME CLEARANCE

Prevents sections from getting clogged.

Despite their compact dimensions, the SWIFTERDISC XN cultivators have outstanding frame clearance. The distance between the front and rear disc rows is up to 31,5 inches. The frame clearance is about 23,6 inches and enables incorporation of larger quantities of crop residue or organic fertilizer.

ALFA DRILL SEEDING UNIT

Simple and easy catch crop establishment using a disc cultivator with a seeding unit.

The SWIFTERDISC XN cultivator can be equipped with the BEDNAR ALFA DRILL seeding unit while in production, for seeding catch crop and small-seed plants during stubble breaking, all in one pass. The time and fuel savings are considerable. The seeding unit has a capacity of 400 litres.

ACTUAL WORKING WIDTH OF 3 METRES

Thanks to the folding side discs.

To ensure safe transport, the side discs are folded upwards. The discs can be folded mechanically, or hydraulically in the comfort of the cabin. The hydraulic design is especially suitable when the machine is transported on roads more frequently. The full working width of three metres is achieved by unfolding the side discs into the working position.

SAFE TRANSPORT

Even when travelling with a mounted machine.

The SWIFTERDISC XN cultivator is aggregated with the tractor’s three-point hitch. The compact and short frame of the disc cultivator ensures safe transport, because the centre of gravity is close to the rear axle of the tractor.

OUR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

MAINTENANCE-FREE BEARINGS

The ball bearings with an oblique contact are closed by two static and one dynamic cassette seal with four sealing ribs, and they move in a solid metal body. The bearings are attached to the disc with six bolts. They are oversized, which ensures a trouble-free operation.

RUBBER SEGMENT DISC PROTECTION

The mounting of two discs on one tine provides twice the space for rubber segment protection. The rubber segments absorb shocks formed during soil cultivation. The cultivator works fast and without maintenance, even in very difficult conditions. The rubber is high quality, with a long service life.

TWIN-DISC MOUNTING SYSTEM

One tine for two discs provides a high material throughput. Crop residue can easily flow through the machine (large quantities of straw, crop residue after grain maize). Most disc cultivators only have one tine per disc. Such design restricts the flow of material namely in wet conditions, or when there are large quantities of crop residue.

WHAT DO THE FARMERS HAVE TO SAY?

“I tried the BEDNAR cultivator together with other German and Polish machines. I decided to go with BEDNAR because I liked how the machine worked and the price was also favourable. I use the machine to provide services, it cultivates about 350 hectares every year. I use it for both stubble breaking and seedbed preparation. What I like about the cultivator is the crumbling and mixing effect of the A-discs with a large diameter, 20,5 × 0,2 inches, the maintenance-free disc bearings, and the good work of the rear segmented packer.”

a private farmer, Bernartice (district of Jeseník, CZ)

AGRONOMICAL GUIDE

STUBBLE CULTIVATION
Quality and fast stubble cultivation is one of the most important operations in tillage. According to good agrotechnical practices, it should be carried out as soon as possible after the harvest. This will ensure the optimization of soil moisture management, the rapid emergence of weeds and thus prevent the later weeding of land.
