News and Novelties by BEDNAR Introduced at the Occasion of the 2019 AGRITECHNICA International Fair
At the occasion of the Hannover Fair, BEDNAR presents novelties and expanded model series. Some of the new products will be available for direct sale on the day of the commencement of the Fair and others are presented as concepts that will be introduced to the market as soon as possible after thorough testing.
SWIFTERDISC XE_PROFI – Wide Disc Cultivator
The SWIFTERDISC XE_PROFI disc cultivator was first introduced at the SIMA international fair in 2019. The presented concept of this wide machine is now coming to the stores after challenging tests.
The wide SWIFTERDISC XE_PROFI disc cultivator also supports the ISOBUS Task-Controller. It enables automatic adjustment of the working depth according to a prepared map. At the same time, it is possible to save the actual working depth of the machine at every point of the cultivated field. Thanks to the implemented ISOBUS Section-Control function, it is possible to lift and lower the machine automatically at headland. The machine terminal also displays the statistics of worked hours, cultivated area and machine output.
The direct guiding of the machine in the tractor axis is provided by the transport axle mounted before the working discs and by the X-shaped arrangement of the working discs. SWIFTERDISC XE_PROFI can be equipped with discs with a diameter of 520 or 560 mm and a width of 6 mm. The disc protection is provided by a maintenance-free system with rubber segments. The machine can be equipped with a front cutting roller or hydraulically-controlled levelling bar along the entire width of the machine. Tato design concept expands the area of use of the machine.
The design of SWITERDISC XE_PROFI allows for turning the machine at headland on the transport axle, double rotating wheels and the rear double rollers. This system reduces the stress in the frames and joints, thus increasing the service life of the machine. The machine design provides for an easy, safe and fast transport on roads within EU rules.
ACTROS RO – Combined Cultivator
The new ACTROS RO combined cultivator by BEDNAR fills in the current gap in the BEDNAR machine portfolio. It is designed for cutting and processing large quantities of crop residue and for mixing them with loosened soil in a single pass, or just for disrupting the compacted layers.
This BEDNAR novelty will be introduced to the market with a working width of 3 and 4 metres in the 2020 summer season.
FENIX FO – Versatile Cultivator
The new semi-mounted versatile FENIX FO cultivator is designed as a 3row machine with an integrated axle. The axle arrangement significantly reduces the turning radius at headland. Another advantage is the last row of shares arranged in a single line, which provides even distribution of material before the packer. Thanks to this design, the machine meets the requirements of the most demanding customers.
The versatile FENIX FO cultivator is suitable for seedbed cultivation in fields with larger quantities of crop residue, or for stubble cultivation starting at 5 cm and loosening of up to 35 cm. The machine manages all of that even in moister conditions. Initially, it will be manufactured in two working widths, 5 and 6 meters, and the first machines will be available to order for the 2020 spring season.
COMBO SYSTEM CS Versatile Storage Hopper for Crop Production
BEDNAR is introducing COMBO SYSTEM CS, a versatile pressurized double-chamber storage hopper that can be used for various operations in crop production. It is especially suitable for aggregation with the TERRALAND TN and TERRASTRIP ZN chisel ploughs, or with the CORSA CN seeding bar, designed for fast crop establishment.
TERRASTRIP ZN 8R/75 – A New Chisel Plough for Deep Strip Tillage
TERRASTRIP ZN 8R/75 is a mounted folding chisel plough with a working width of 6 m, designed for intense soil cultivation in strips where row crops with an inter-row spacing of 70 and 75 cm are grown (corn, sunflower, …). The new chisel plough accompanies TERRASTIP ZN 8R/45 designed for strip tillage for growing row crops with an inter-row spacing of 45 and 50 cm (sugar beet…).
The TERRASTRIP method has gone through several seasonal agronomic tests in leading farming businesses and it can be recommended as a technology promoting yield. At the same time, it is costeffective and has a positive effect on the condition of the soil environment and on the soil ability to cope with the consequences of the climate change. It can be used in the corn and sugar beet growing technology, as well as for winter oilseed rape, and BEDNAR is developing a double-row seeding technology with a spacing of 25 cm over loosened and fertilized strips cultivated by TERRASTRIP 8R/75.
CORSA CN – Seeding Bar
The mounted CORSA CN seeding bar is a new seeding machine by BEDNAR. It can be aggregated with the COMBO SYSTEM CS storage hopper, or directly in the three-point tractor hitch. When aggregated directly with the tractor, the bar has to be connected with the front seed hopper, such as FERTI-BOX FB_F or FERTI-BOX FB_F DUAL.
Expansion of the OMEGA OO_FL Series
OMEGA OO 4000 FL is a lighter version of the versatile seed drill for seeding various types of crops and for applying fertilizers with a large variety of the seeding amount and a working width of 4 m. BEDNAR is thus expanding the working widths of the OMEGA OO_FL seed drills in response to the high demand of smaller farming businesses for a variable seed drill which, in addition to the standard possibilities, also allows for establishing various combinations of crops in a single pass.
It is comfortable to calibrate and empty the hoppers as the outlets are accessible at the back of the machine. The control of the seed drill is simple and intuitive. The batching system is fully electronically controlled and it works on the basis of the ISOBUS system, similarly to the previous versions of the OMEGA seed drills.
The innovated electronic control system now allows the operator to easily control the machine settings from the tractor cabin (disc depth, front leveller, rear accessories, depth of seeding, drill coulter pressure). Also, the software now supports the Section-Control function (up to two sections) and Multi-Control (variable batching from up to two dispensers). The inter-row spacing of the drill coulters can be set at 12.5 cm or 16.5 cm.
The OMEGA OO_FL seed drill is suitable for use in both conventional (tillage) and minimum tillage systems. The fertilizer can be applied in the inter-row between seeds, on the surface, or together with the seeds. Thanks to the PSP system, the double-disc drill coulters place seeds at an identical depth along the entire width of the machine and perfectly trace the terrain unevenness, both in the longitudinal and transverse directions. The seeds can be placed at various depth in a single pass thanks to the easy adjustment, which is used when establishing crops with an auxiliary crop, or when seeding various combinations of crops for forage growing.
Farming with us is a joy.
